Very good beer even with a limited selection. The service is at good level and the fries are excellent. Unfortunately no clue about real food

We visited here on a trip to the Christmas market and we were not disappointed. I opted for the vol au vent which I wasn't really sure what to expect but I had chicken and meatballs in a creamy sauce washed down with framboise beer....More

just a few minutes walk from the Grande Place, le grand Cafe was buzzing with early evening diners. Tasty vegetarian, cherry beer sauced duckling and... rabbit, washed down with potent Belgian brews. The staff were friendly and efficient, no paper was wasted taking our order....More

Popped in for an early dinner. Food was good, service was good. Nice atmosphere. Good location close to centre. Pricing was middle of the range. Would come again.

This traditional cafe is located opposite the Marriott hotel in quite a touristy area. The interior was okay but nothing special and the service was fine. We did think that €2.90 for an espresso coffee was a bit expensive.

The dinner we had was very tasty. We had some typical Belgian food, for a reasonable price. The location is very good, that's why we expected higher prices. The staff was nice and the service very fast and satisfying

Came here by chance, spacious enough for bringing in a pram, attentive service, casual setting. Perfect for tourist experience but also spotted some locals.

The Cafe is just off the Grand Place and is used by the locals and tourist alike - it has a fair vegetarian choice, probably good by Belgian levels - The staff were great and the mussels were very nice and a good size portion.

Because of the GBP hitting parity with the EUR everything in 'Euroland' is now more expensive. This cafe is very nice, good service, but it's quite expensive for what you actually get! Still worth a visit though for the location, where you can watch the...More
