The decor in Raphael is fantastic we got a lovely seat in the window where we could watch the world go by. A nice wine and a well cooked (rare)... More

The decor is interesting and the service is friendly. We ordered grilled meat and it took time. When it came is was almost raw and we needed to wait for it to get grilled.

The staff are very energetic, helpful and cheerful and do their best to allow you to order exactly what you will love. We had... More

We went in on the off-chance one evening and were very pleasantly surprised. The building was originally a Spanish Catholic Church and the decor reflects that, with religious statues and artefacts. The waiter/manager was excellent, helpful and friendly, spending time chatting although the place was quite busy. The food was good - we both had rib-eye steaks, which were beautifully... More

We had a weekend trip to Brussels for our wedding anniversary this year and were looking for somewhere nice to have a nice meal together. There are a few fine dining places we found but all fully booked for a Saturday evening and my wife isn't keen on places that have people outside trying to persuade you inside. We found... More

A charming little restaurant, conveniently located near the Grande Place, where I have to say I had, against all expectations, one of the best fillet steaks I've ever eaten. Try it!
