La Buvette, a former horsemeat butcher, is located at the chaussée d’Alsemberg in the popular Brussels Saint-Gilles neighbourhood. If you come by car, take some time to find a parking spot, as it’s a busy street. The design and decoration is very typical fifties, with...More

The food - The flavors were a confused mix, lacking depth, lacking the special surprise. Expected a lot more based on the reviews but this was not nearly there in terms of gastronomie! Ultimately not worth the price.. Service was good by brussels standards, bilingual...More

The dishes are surprising and full of flavours. There's a set menu but there's a vegetarian version and you can chose between a smaller or a larger menu. Other dietry requests can be met, too. We had more than enough with the smaller menu. Service...More

The dishes are original and delicious, the atmosphere laid back. The chef is friendly and explains if you ask. It's our favourite in Brussels by far.

I noted only 2 reviewers used the word "vegetarian"in their reviews. This is surprising because when I looked at the set menu of 9 courses, only 1 course had meat included and one had deal included. Yet the menu stated explicitly that they are open...More

The night before going to "La Buvette" we went to "Le monde est petit", which unlike "La Buvette" had a Michelin star. Funny enough the experiences we had in the 2 restaurants were poxlarisingly different and if anyone deserved the Michelin star it was "La...More

Can highly recommend. Choice of two degustation menus, one with less courses, one with more courses. Service was very good, helpful and friendly, and gently attentive. If you go here, be prepared to settle in for a few hours, sit back and enjoy.
