Not a massive fan of sweet foods but thought I should find out the big fuss about waffles. Went for the liege waffles with strawberries and chocolate sauce and some ice cream;was heaven. Perfectly sweet. The waffle was soft and warm mixing beautifully with the ice cream with the strawberries adding another direction of flavour and sweetness. Would easily recommend... More

Yes, there are street vendors and small shops that sell waffles, but if you want authentic Belgian waffles, this is the place to visit. The warm, yellow waffles were light as air and come with yummy toppings like caramel, chocolate, fruit and ice cream. Fantastic! We also shared a quiche Lorraine that was warm and delicious with goat cheese added... More

The perfect place to get some hot waffles on a cold day, with chocolate or Nutella on top. Maison Dandoy can be found in a number of spots, we had our waffles fix close to the Grand-Place in Brussels.

We went there to buy the really excellent specooloos but we stayed also for coffee in the tea room. The waffles were really delicious.

On a previous trip to Brussels I tried a Belgium waffle and I was not really impressed, however, during this trip I made sure to get a recommendation and Maison Dandoy was spot on. We were told if we just wanted a waffle any of the 1€ waffle places would be fine, if we didn't mind paying a little more... More

We had Brussel's waffle with ice-cream and chocolate. It was deliciously warm, perfectly doughy and sweet. You can taste the difference when you compare it with other waffles. Dandoy's waffle has the feeling of homemade. Best waffle I have ever eaten untiI now. I also recommend quiche. I had spinach one and really loved it. You should try both. Not... More

Best waffels we had when visiting Brussels. Staff could be a little friendlier, but not a reason not to go.

When in Brussels you'll go our for waffles. But this place is over priced (their neighbours do a much better job). We ordered waffles, but we're not allowed to eat them on the complete empty terrace. When you order you have to tell you want to eat on the terrace (which has same price). Never, ever again we will visit... More

My husband had read about this cafe in his travel guide, we found it a little difficult to find however when we did we were glad we hadn't given up. We understand they make the best waffles in Belgium and they looked very good. We went for the selection of Maison Dandy biscuits and they were amazing. I had these... More
