We were hoping for something better that standard tourist fare but alas this is what we got. So many restaurants in Brussels but so few really good ones. We were cold and in need of warm food and eventully picked this spot. Interior is nice and welcoming and staff professional but the food was bland and lacking in real flavours.... More

I ate at l'Huiterie last night in a group 7, and will never go back or recommend it. We had booked the table at 9pm, and we received our main courses over 2 hours later after 11.15pm. Desserts arrived just before midnight. Most of us had ordered from the set menus and had fish-based dishes, except for three people who... More

We walked in with a VIP customer without booking for an early dinner. Nice welcome, excellent food and wine served with high quality service. Not the cheapest but in Brussels downtown I assume it was value for money.

My wife and i had a very good experience of this restaurant . We ate seafood and meat and ordered a bottle of red. Large selection of food and wine. The seafood and the meat was worth its price and much more. Friendly environment and staff and a good service at this restaurant.

For two persons I have spent 82€ with the discount of the fork 67€. I decided for a combo menu my girlfriend for cold starter and moules. Plus one bottle of... More

Food was good but not great Overall a bit expensive What was disturbing was the way the owner treated his staff. Pretty embarrassing in times for us customers as he kept on making remarks to them in front of everybody This overshadowed the whole experience

The food was fine but the service was very bad: we have been waiting for 2 hours! In the meantime the staff was not friendly with us. Not at all!

Outside the Google Maps radar, it appeared before trying another room that appeared doubtful: there was none. This is at once very cozy and, it’s evident, also frequented by residents. An important sign. The choice of crustaceans and shellfish is excellent. Courtesy and very good service. The food lived up to expectations. I chose a plate of assorted fresh shellfish... More
