Le Rabassier deserves its #1 spot. The whole night was a series of delightful surprises. Everything met our great expectations.
Christophe Durieux works alone in the kitchen and that must mean he is some kind of magician. The food he touches becomes flawless.

We booked 3 weeks in advance as there aren’t very many covers. The table was set beautifully and we opted for the 7 course Rabassier taster menu with 3 glasses of recommended wine. Everything was exceptional from the choice of table ware and presentation to the sublime choice of textures and tastes. We both love everything. We bought our petite fours home as we really couldn’t eat any more. Highly recommend.

Very interesting culinary experience. The chef has surely a big talent!
From the appetizer to the "before dessert" and dessert, everything has an original touch and precious details.
Atmosphere and cutlery are elegant without exaggerations. Professional service by a young lady who seemed just a little bit too tense.
So only congratulations concerning what was in the dish.
Here's a couple of observations of some little negative things that I have noticed.
Wine list a bit disappointing. Also, the waitress came to show us the bottle we chose but then walked away to open it where we could not see her. I am sure that nothing suspicious happened, but it is nice for the customer to see when your bottle is opened.
Having seen different tasting menus served, I found the difference of price between the "Black Truffle" one (155€) too big compared to the other menus - especially with the second most expensive at 90€ - and maybe not worth it.
The owner/chef did not show himself during the whole dinner...pity!
The bill we got is a real VAT receipt (which is still quite rare in Brussels!) but unfortunately the detail of it is just a long list of "Divers", including mistakes on the taxable percentage of beverages.
Anyway overall a very good experience.

Wonderful experience. The tasting menu was imaginative, perfectly cooked and a real luxury. This was a meal to celebrate my husband birthday and they made sure it was special for us. Great wine, wonderful food and 5 star service. The lady that was waiting on tables i believe was one of the owners and you could genuinely tell she has her heart and soul set in this restaurant!

It's a rare occasion when a meal is pure perfection : food, service, ambience, decor. Loved every minute of our amazingly creative and very balanced tasting menu. Highly recommend.
