What a waisted trip to the place! Friday evening and it was closed! Fiasco or bankruptcy? There is a post on Brussels.com but should be updated and mentioned that the place is not working

The small front restaurant is quite unbelievable. The staff almost outnumbered the guests. The general (much larger) restaurant has been visited often and is excellent.

The decor and original furniture are beautiful but the service is slow and unfriendly and the food is not worth the wait at all. To see the place I'd have a drink at Mangakat upstairs and avoid the restaurant all together.

I was in Brussels on business, staying a few blocks away and decided to check out De Ultieme Hallucinatie by myself on Thursday evening around 9pm. The restaurant is in an old art nouveau townhouse and even the drainage grate on the sidewalk outside, and...More

I was in Belgium for business last month and was recommended to visit the Ultimate Hallucination. It's a little way out of the centre of Brussels but well worth the trip. A beautiful place, with the bar area entirely kitted out in green. I ordered...More

The Ultimate Hallucination is definitely a one-of-a-kind experience. It's housed in a former home, with Art Nouveau decoration from 1904 pretty much intact. This is not a Disney-fied, re-made version of Art Nouveau; this is the real thing, faded but very clean. You get the...More
