The only warning here is that prices are medium/high so I would recommend it for adult couples, seniors, corporate dinners and the like. I loved the Carpaccio; the Angus meat was melting in my mouth. Excellent red wine and good final Espresso coffee... The waitress...More

nice brasserie with terrace on the square overlooking the central railway station. Nice illuminated at night. Large menu with many more weekly suggestions. Everything a bit overpriced but the quality is good and the portions large. We had good mussels with very good fresh french...More

Probably the most upmarket of the restaurants in and around the square. Service was fine and the food was good, I had a traditional beef stew, which was delicious. Three of us ate main courses and drinks for about 25 euros per person.

This restaurant was a bit more up market than the others in this area and the food nicely matched it. I had the roasted salmon with mash potato whilst my colleague had the horse special.

A bit pretentious and more expensive than it delivers. But very pleasant atmosphere and reasonable service by Belgium standards. However my ribeye was very though and full of sinew, which let the rest of the food down.

This restaurant was recommended to me. The setting is very pleasant and is in a real Parisian brasserie style. The menu looks pretty attractive. I had cheese croquettes and guinea fowl with an orange sauce. The croquettes were not so successful, as they had been...More

The white linen tablecloths and variety of wine glasses on the tables mark it out as the most up market restaurant of the many bars, brasseries and restaurants that surround the main station square. The fact it is invariably packed in the evening, even though...More
