A little restaurant with a special every night. Old fashion, probably family owened brasserie, serving French-Belgian dishes. Very good house wine and a memorable steak.

l'Achepot or HPO is a wonderful small restaurant that smothers you with loving service and delicious food and wine, at a price. Come here with your loved one, or your business partners, and expect to pay 100 Euro per head to feel pampered inside and...More

Sadly, l'Achepot is no more. It shut down in Spring 2015 and as of June 2015 has been replaced by a Japanese noodle bar. I haven't eaten there so can't judge its quality. This one-star review therefore doesn't relate to the new establishment, but is...More

I was attracted to this restaurant after noticing three micheling guide stickers on the door. However, it's a "below-average brasserie". Food is not the best - i had a tartare and it was just good. Oysters also didn't impress me.

This restaurant in the old center on 1, place Sainte Catherine is true find. Very good local cuisine in a pleasant setting. Price rather in the top, but totally justified by the quality of food and service. A highly recommend ...

Nice, small restaurant serving great food. Shame that the damp smells from the cellar overpowered the (much nicer) aroma from the kitchen.

Eating in the centre of Brussels, or indeed any large city, can be a bit of a hit and miss experience - too often, the staff seem only too aware that tourists, who are unlikely to come back anyway, make up a large share of...More
