Very busy Belgian Cafe, with lots of choice and very friendly staff. there are Belgian and dishes from across Europe so you should find something you like. I chose the Tarte aux L'onione it was delicious.

The staff may be a little tired of tourists- watch out. The good news is, the beer and coffee works just fine.

long story short - just go there and order king of the cakes. You will be served with outstanding and extremely light raspberry cake covered with a kind-a-like cake mass. All I can say I could it it all and I wouldn't have had enough :-) and I would travel there again just to eat it more!

Cafe Arcadi is one of our must stops in Brussels. It is always full of a mixture of tourists and locals. The service is welcoming and the food excellent quality and value. In our visits this week we chatted with three or four staff who claimed to remember us from previous visits and perhaps so. Two young men have worked... More

We went there for a late light dinner. It is a simple cafe (small round tables very close to each other) with a large variety of tartes. Both tartes we ordered were very rich with a very thin dough layer. Service was good and friendly. Fair prices.

My daughter and I came here 3 times on a 3 day visit to Brussels. Twice for breakfast and once for pudding having had a bad experience at Chez Patrick near the Grand Place. It is situated at the entrance to Galerie St Hubert so you feel you are getting a head start to your sightseeing! The service was charming... More

I visted Arcadi for dinner while on a work trip to Brussels. I didn't do any prior research and stumbled on the place, at the time it wasn't overly busy with a number of free tables. On entering it took around 15 minutes to be seated which I felt was strange. My experience with the staff was not great, everything... More

I'm not a fan, but I'm not a hater of this place either. The food isn't bad at all, on the contrary: sometimes it's actually really good. But the service... the staff is just rude and they're not very people oriented. They get things wrong sometimes, they're walking around like headless chickens (or so it feels like), they're very slow... More
