Having tried most of the resto's around Rue Stevin, this one is a poor bet. The food is not very good, the portions unappetisingly large and of very average taste. When considering the prices charged, many better places are around. the wine list appears to be missing....and only 2 red wines were offered - one at 26 and one at... More

...but maybe would be worth another try. Service is good. We ordered tapas, I expected more from the pulpo a la Gallega, but maybe I should only order it in Spain. From the photos here, I can see that there is a nice garden. I will check it again and hopefully, update my review with a more positive one.

Good quality, good price, good people. The meet is delicious, also the jamón ibérico, and the place is neat, good place for business meals as well as for private meals. I'll come back for sure!

It was good, but nothing very very special in my opinion. Although had a good meal and not too expensive!

This is one of my favourite restaurants everytime I stay in Brussels. Indeed you will find here some of the best traditional Spanish dishes. Among other preparations I advice you to try the best argentinian entrecote I ever ate. The service could be perhaps improved but never taken in fault. And, last but not least, the bill will never kill... More

J'aime bien la cuisine espagnole et ce restaurant sert quelques bonnes spécialités (plats, vins). Les prix sont corrects pour le quartier européen mais plutôt chers si l'on compare avec d'autres restaurants à Bruxelles. J'y ai mangé une dizaine de fois au cours des dernières années et je trouve la qualité inégale. Il vaut mieux éviter d'y manger le midi en... More

Food is OK, if a bit overpriced sometimes. Service is attentive but sometimes slow. But the place is nice and ideal for a business lunch.
