Very pleasantly surprised by The Restaurant! Nice surroundings, good service and even better food! Intriguing but delicious mise-en-bouche made (among other) from red cabbage, excellent starters, very good main dishes. A special mention is due to the sole: usually a very plain dish but here prepared in an innovative and quite delicious way! Very helpful sommelier who recommended fairly unknown and yet excellent wines.
Overall, it was not cheap (> €200 for 2) but remained a very pleasant dinner that could have been even better if it was not for the (very) noisy bar that is directly connected to the dining room.

I held a business meeting in the hotel as the restaurant looked nice. It ended up beating my expectations with excellent food and greta staff service. We were conducting an important meeting so the staff really helped the flow of the meeting by respecting the timing of their service enquiries and questions relating to our food requirements. I can't wait to eat here again on my next Brussels visit. Thank you!

We ate both dinner and breakfast in this hotel restaurant and had great experiences both times.
Dinner was from a Table de hotel menu that changes weekly with a choice of three courses but also offered a 4 and 5 course selection. We couldn't figure out what the 4 and 5 course options were and our lack of french made communication with the server at best intermittent.
We chose a starter and a main and were both served a starter that wasn't listed on the menu consisting of three small amuse bouches that set the tone for the meal. Due to language issues we weren't sure what each dish was but they all tasted superb.
A roasted cauliflower soup with home made bread was tasty and the mains we ordered were artistically presented and perfectly cooked.

Breakfast was another superb buffet type experience. Tables of fresh pastries, breads, fruits, cheeses etc were all present and a great coffee machine provided nice selections of caffeinated beverages at the push of a button.
A hot buffet line provided all the choices you could ask for and it was hard to pull myself away from the line and catch my ride to the airport.

I will eat here next time I am in Brussels.
