Definetly the best Paella in Brussels and maybe in Belgium.... Just avoid to take starters and any other spanish stuff...the paella is a massive portion. The plate with patanegra is quite pricy but worth.to try...

This is a must-visit! Very pure tastes and fine cuisine. A little more expensive, you have to keep in mind, you'll pay around 80 € to 100€ if you go all the way: starter-main dish - dessert and wine. But it's all worth it. Try the pulpo with black ink: it is delicious. Atmosphere is romantic but quite 'dark' if... More

Cosy, a bit dark but nice surroundings. Very friendly and helpful staff. It's not the cheapest but the experience is very good: both service as food. Tip: don't take the house wine (red). They have some excellent, and not too expensive wines which go very well with what they serve. But the house wine is not one of them.

Went there with friends, the place came highly recommended and we got a 50% discount because of a local food festival. Excellent food, the Pulpo a la Gallega was incredibly tender. Paella was very good. Service was ok but not special. One of the more expensive places. Very nice Paella afterwards. The place is located in a beautiful part of... More

I went there for the second time yesterday and as I remembered from the previous one the food is amazing, really good quality and cooked in a wonderful way. I also like the fact that at the end of the night the cook comes out to the kitchen and you can see his smiling face. Service ok, nothing special, no... More

As usual in Brussels the service is also not great here. Kitchen was very slow, but the quality of the food was extremely good! Also big portion, although it is expensive. Desserts unfortunately are not good. Very average and took so long.

This rather small Spanish restaurant is located in front of the townhall of Schaerbeek. The chef uses the best ingredients and there are nice daily suggestions. The service is very good and they are very helpful to explain you all the local Spanish dishes you'll discover on the menu. Because it is not always easy to park in that neighbourhood... More

Right beside the beautiful town hall of Schaarbeek it's an easy trip for us who live on the north west side of Brussels. This restaurant is certainly a match for the ones situated in Ixelles. There is valet parking though we didn't need it on a weekday evening, but surely useful on weekends. We took the mixed plate for starters... More
