Such a great place! A bit away from the beaten track but definitely worth the 9 Euro it took us to get there from Grand place (or 30 min by foot) Entirely dedicated to natural wine (no chemicals, no additives, no intervention, no sulphites, no nonsense) La Buvette serves a menu of either seven (or was it eight) or eleven...

Visited with a group of 7 colleagues. Arrived around 7:15 pm & finished just before 11 pm. We went for the 10 course deal for 64€. An interesting array of creations appeared. The wine. Interesting. Organic from Serbia. Fortunately it only tasted bitter whereas the smell -politely - manure. The restaurant itself is old & quirky but the food delivers... More

We heard a lot of good about this restaurant from friends, so we were very excited when going there. The 7 course menu is truly delicious and every plate is a little piece art for your eye with an explosion of flavours afterwards when you taste. Unfortunately the culinary experience got kind of wasted by an extreme slow service and... More

La Buvette is located in a former art deco butchery. There is a small dining room downstairs and a larger one upstairs. While the downstairs area looks more special, it also is louder and colder, especially in winter time. We preferred to dine upstairs where the tables also are not so close to one another. Dining at La Buvette is... More

The food, ambience and location was great ... we went for the 10 course menu (instead of the 7 course version) which was superb and well portioned (not too much). Their house champagne was excellent as was the Exode white riesling/chardonnay from Serbia. We'll be back!

This was not the first choice restaurant but I think I made a great choice. Made the booking via our hotel. We arrived and the waiter seemed a little stern but I think this was due to the language difference. But as soon as the food started to come we were on to a winner. Each course was superb and...

It was our second visit here, the interior is really nice. You should definitely go for the XL menu! The food was great, but some dishes are way better than others. For example, we really enjoyed the oyster veal tartare but the final desert (dark chocolate fondant) was tasty but expected something more exciting/surprising. The only minus to this place... More

Visited La Buvette twice in the last week just to ensure that the incredible experience of the first visit was not a happy accident. And it wasn't. The kitchen offers - at a great value for money rate – two set menus at either 7 or 9 courses. Excellent portioned - just enough to enjoy the taste and still be... More

This is one of the best meals we've enjoyed in a while. A really interesting menu, with lots of great, and often unexpected, flavour combinations, which was amazing value for money. We were genuinely excited to see what came next during the 9 course tasting menu we had, and enjoyed the warm service, and novel surroundings (the restaurant is a... More

Recommended by one of our kids, we decided to try this place.When seen from the outside, one could not guess that the restaurant is actually not that small.The interior has kept his original features and charm(although it was a butcher..). Staff was very friendly, and multilingual as was our party. Kitchen staff is proud of their food as they bring... More
