Following a recommendation to go to Bistro du Canal, we decided to try it. It happened to be very close to our B&B. We were so impressed with the food, location, service that we returned the next night just to try something else on the...More

I went into this bistrot late, at about 10.30 pm and they were still serving, which was great news as I was starving - a late arrival in Brussels and my hotel didn't have any restaurant or room service! I had the onglet de boeuf...More

My wife and I just arrived at our Airbnb place and heading out for our dinner and found this beautiful well-decor French restaurant just opposite from where we stayed. Amazing food!

Went with a group of 16 (8 kids under 13 and parents). Service and quality of food for the adults were spot on, menu choice for the kids was a bit limited to keep things simple but sufficient. Would certainly recommend!

Lively restaurant near the Canal in Brussels. The food is simple but nice and prices are really OK! I highly recommend Wednesday nights when you can enjoy tasty wines at the wine bar on the outside of the Bistro.

Visited again on a relatively quiet Saturday evening. The service was exemplary. The menu featured numerous new intriguing options. The complimentary bread and extra virgin olive oil are the same outstanding appetiser. Wine advice - from the interestingly affordable wine list - was competent and...More
