Very charming setting for this restaurant (building of the 16th century!). Very well known in the area for the delicious meat roasted on a open fire, great for the winter and with a beautiful garden for eating outside in the summer. Friendly staff. A place where you meet many locals (families from the (very) privileged area rather than tourists. One of our classic for family dinners.

A classic old school family owned restaurant. Quality cuts of beef (mainly) cooked over an open wood fire served by staff who've worked there well for ever!

Great food, great restaurant and great staff...even better when the weather is cold as one can appreciate the cozy setting and crackling fire!

This is my second time in Brussels, and my second time at de Hoef 1627.
My wife found it through research several years ago, and it is a great combination of Country ambience and simple, yet excellent, food.
My daughter and I had Sirloin Steak, which is cooked over an open hardwood fire in the large fireplace in the front room of the restaurant. This was accompanied by Ceasar Salad and Pomme Frites. The wine list is thankfully brief, French, and reasonable. We had an excellent yet inexpensive chilled Alsace Pinot Noir that was a nice compliment to our dinner.
The desserts were also delicious; one of the best versions of Chocolate Mousse I've had.
Not meaning to sound like I really know beef, but I have had the opportunity to eat in some of the finest steak restaurants across the US, and this steak was less fatty and still flavorful, and perfectly prepared. I will go back again.

Hard to believe to find a restaurant in a building from 1627 just in the middle of Brussels. This place is famous for preparing most it its plates on the open fire. The walls have the same age as the building and gives a very cosy atmosphere. Menu at 30 €uro 4 courses. A small nice protected terasse in the back for warm summerdays.
