Rue de Bouchers - lots of restaurants!: Pick a restaurant in Rue de Bouchers
This is a very famous street with lots of restaurants, international kitchen, you can choose typical Belgian food, but you find there lots of italian restaurants,turkish,chinese,...
So there is a wide choice. I suggest that you just wander through this small street and take a look at the types of restaurants and the menu lists that are exposed.
You will definitely find something.
It's great fun eating with friends on a terrace there, watching all the tourists passing by.
Lots of animation and great atmosphere when it's hot during the summer.

Taverne du Passage: Arrogance Classique
Not exactly favourite, but I take my guests there for a nice Belgian dinner at a touristy-but-bearable spot; the price list is bearable, too...
Good selection of Belgian favourites; classy 'hauteur' and rudeness on part of the waiters (but more bearable than average). Best to sit outside in the Gallery in the summer. Avoid the Rue de Bouchers side at all costs.
Favorite Dish: Chicken in white wine
My favourite Belgian...
My favourite Belgian restaurant in Brussels is the 'Saint-Hubert's' in Schaerbeek.
Outside the city, I also like 'La Besace', in Crupet, near Spontin, in the south of the country (100 km of Brussels, in a very nice landscape and with delicious meals. Not expensive at all. It's really a must !
I'm not sure it's recommanded to eat in the well known restaurants in Brussels as 'L'auberge des Chapelier' of the fish restaurants around the 'Fish market'. The quality is not bad but everybody goes there. Do you know you also can find a lot of Japanese, Chinese, Libanese, Marocan, thai (very good)...restaurants in Brussels ? You find it on the url I gave here.
Saint-Hubert :Typically Belgian restaurant, with very good and fresh meals.
La Besace : Not to believe !
Chez Pierre: Chez Pierre
Chez Pierre has the perfect atmosphere. The servers are attentive, but left us alone so we were able to eat our dinner without hurrying. They have a fabulous wine list!
Favorite Dish: Waterzooi - the first time I ever ate this soup was at Chez Pierre
Both fine restaurants and...
Both fine restaurants and simpler pubs are in abundance! Perhaps one of the more historically-significant of them is LE CYGNE, shown here. After being expelled from Paris in 1845, Marx and Engels established the socialist German Workers' Club and wrote the 'Communist Manifesto' on this site. (In 1848 they were forced to leave Belgium.)
There are some great...
There are some great restaurants in Brussels, one that I went and I highly recommed is Restaurant Ogenblik. I also like Leon de Bruxelles, since 1893. Touristy but good.
Very nice and elegant, they gave me the dirties look, since I did not have reservations, and I walked in, with 'jeans'. But if you want an excellent meal, I highly recommend it!.
Favorite Dish: At the Ogenblik, I had the 'Bavarois de tomates mures au chavre frais et basilic', that was the cheapest salad at 480 BF., and for the entré, I had 'Grillade mixte de poissons, beurre blanc a l'échalote', at 880 BF, (a bargain), for dessert, I had the 'Gateau 'Opera' au chocolat et creme anglaise' at 360 BF, plus some wine and mineral water, this came to 2,300 BF. but what a meal! Compare with my meal at Léon which was less than half of that 955 BF.
All of them! The ones in that...
All of them! The ones in that little district near the Galleries Hubert are so so so cool. Enjoy Mussels with Chips, washed down with lashings of Belgian Beer. See my Charleroi page for tips on the beers.
Other Belgian: Stuff Your Face!
Not any certain Restaurant; you can find waffles and chocolate all kinds of places.
Favorite Dish: Be careful and don't spill!
Les Brasseurs/De Brouwrs: Fresh Belgian Beer
Just off the Grand Place you find this wonderful brewery with great belgian beer and a good lunch.
Favorite Dish: Beer -- freshly brewed in Belgian style
Beenhouwerstraat: Menu board and groceries
Next morning we found ourselves in the Beenhouwer straat again, on our way to the chocolate museum. I saw that deliveries to restaurants were simply left at the door: French bread, oysters, shrimp...
Hotel Metropole: Hotel Metropole
Grand Café connected with the chic looking entrance of Hotel Metropole. Busy and big place, lovely old interior, arrogant service, high prices (2 euro 50 for a coffee).
Other Belgian: Rue De Bouchers
Rue De Bouchers is a small street leading off the north of the grand place that is packed with sidewalk cafes of Belgian, Italian and even some chinese cuisine
