The place seems to be constantly fully booked but we managed after several tries. It was worth every cent. The menu is modest but each ingredient tastes just about right - fresh, tasteful and top quality. We had the yellowfin thon sashimi and shrimp salad as starters. Then the Iberic pork plumas and grilled stuffed sardines. The rhubarb crumble is not to be missed. The wine list is pretty much in line with the menu and contains European classics but also new world nouvelties. Service, as pretty much everywhere in Brussels, was average. If it improves this could be one of the most remarkable restaurants we have ever been to.

Henri is a well known restaurant in Brussels that is managed by a young enthousiastic team. Situated in the more 'trendy' neighbourhood of Brussels it is idealy located for late-night dinner and some drinks afterwards.
The menu offers a variety of the better brasserie/bistro food as well as some more 'exotic' dishes on the suggestions board. I had a dish from the suggestions 'neck/shoulder of Iberico Belotta pig' and it was truely outstanding! The shrimp croquettes and Americain are worth the trip also!

It was our last night in Brussels and we had dinner here. Reserved a day in advance as an earlier attempt at walk-in didn't work. An intriguing menu with good choices that were imaginative and tasty. A celebratory starter is the 2 plump oysters with a glass of champagne. Service was ok;there was a wait for main courses but assumed everything cooked to order. All very tasty and an amazing finish to the evening was their marinated strawberries with strawberry ice. Will go back.

I tried really hard to like this place, but I am sorry to say that we did not have a good experience at this restaurant. Although the food was very good, the main courses took forever to arrive. There was a lot of confusion between the waitors, and two of them were simply rude to my companion when (1) he asked for non-alcoholic drinks and (2) asked politely when the main courses would come. Not good. Stay away - at least when you take clients out for dinner.
