The small street just off Grand Place is crammed with similar type restaurants to L'Express. Chicken pita sandwich was large portion but somewhat dry. Garlic white sauce did not have much flavor either. Even olive plate tasted a bit flat. Probably no worse or better than other restaurants nearby. Sandwich, olive plate, Coke was less than 10 Euros.

This is a no frills place with delicious Lebanese food if your palate needs a pick me up from waffle and chocolates. It's also a fantastic place to get your veggies as their tasty falafel plate comes with a variety of meze salads like red cabbage and shredded carrots. The place was packed with primarily locals even though it's right... More

For a few years l'Express has been one of my favorite places to stop for lunch when at the Grand Place. A local introduced me to it, and I've been hooked ever since. It's great Lebanese food, and the shawarma's are wonderful.
