In the centre of Brussels full of restaurants aimed at tourists, serving the same sort of uninspiring food at typically tourist prices, how glad we were to come across this place. In fact, we were buying chocolate at Galler and the very friendly young staff...More

Had dinner here last night and loved it. Yes, it's cash only. The menu is on a blackboard. And you may have to wait for a table. But I think most people who come to Europe are irritated by the behviour of some US visitors...More

Good range of traditional dishes served with some nice touches. Waiting staff were highly tattooed and delightful, interior was warm and welcoming (it is communal style - don't expect a cosy table for two!). Highly recommended if you like good food and aren't up yourself

Diverse menu, with Belgian , Italian and French food. This place is very popular, and as a result very busy and bustling. Staff is amazing, attentive and patient. They speak English and are willing to stop to explain the menu. We chose to go with...More

La fin de siècle is a very nice restaurant in the centre of Brussels. I go there regularly with friends and when relatives come for a visit. Indeed do not be misled: it is a very famous restaurant among tourists, but very much appreciated by...More

As the title suggests the food was lovely, and a reasonable price. The staff were however a little grumpy whenever they served us (British) and an American pair next to us. I would probably visit again, but would hope I wasn't served by the same...More

You cannot book tables at the restaurant. It's a case of turn up and see what they have. I have found myself queuing. And would again.
