We wandered upon the Lobster House after a full day of walking; we were exhausted. All I wanted was a bowl of hot soup. The outside person at the Lobster House assured me they had delicious French onion soup, so we entered. (Cue horror music.) When my soup arrived in a big bowl, I was confused. To me, onion soup...

I entered the Lobster House to have a meal, upon recommendation of friends. I exited delighted with everything. Great and very warm welcoming, the waiters always very careful and attentive and the care of the owner to our needs, all was unexpected. I really like the seafood soup and the sirloin was divine. The beer ... Well, it is Belgium... More

Service was also great...very... More

My wife and I picked this small restaurant for a dinner on our first night in Brussels and it was an excellent choice. We loved everything there. Great food, great design, nice music, kind staff, and all at affordable price. 2 courses + dessert for 18 EUR per person.

I will be swift. Food wasn't bad ,but the staff was almost rude, and they did a weird trick with the bill in the end of lunch. They didn't put one of the plates with the excuse that the machine had some kind of problem, and the money of that plate went to the waiter's pocket. Also, the waiter was... More
