    "Moules à la façon Linda!": A Taste of Belgium

    by lmkluque Updated Apr 2, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One thing every visitor to Belgian should try is a dish called Moules. It is quite popular and delicious. Moules with Frites is unique to Belgium and not to be missed.

    Thanks to the kind encouragement of VT Member "breughel" I tried to recreated this favored Belgian dish as a surprise for my Belgian daughter's birthday.

    She loves mussels and has hardly had any since she's been in the U.S.A.

    After checking out several "authentic" recipes, I created my own version based on various suggested ingredients.

    To Be Continue...

    Favorite Dish: Even though this was only the second time I made it--I tweaked from the first effort--my Belgian daughter said that it was the exact flavor she remembered. The only thing not exactly right were, the mussels, they were Prince Edward Island mussels and not Zeeland mussels--which we don't have here.

    If you want the recipe write to me and I'll give it to you.

    Il Quadrifoglio: Tubize

    by lmkluque Updated May 20, 2012

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I think that that Restaurant Il Quadrifoglio is one of a chain. There is an Il Quadrifoglio in Liege and one in Brussels too. I don't actually know if they are part of a chain or just happen to have the same name. However, it does seem that this restaurant is connected to La Primavera in Mons. I had such a nice meal in La Primavera that I thought it a good idea to try Il Quadrifoglion too.

    Like it's sister restaurant, it was a cozy little place with good food. The decor seemed more formal but not pretentious.

    Favorite Dish: Of course, I had the Pizza, since the pizza be was over by this time. Also, I had a salad and a glass or two of white Wine!

    Le Relais de Vresse: Sleep in the woods and have breakfast “in town”!

    by kokoryko Written Apr 6, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you decide to sleep in the woods, in your tent, you may not be in the mood, next morning to prepare a breakfast, and the best is to drive down to the next village and find a place where the black coffee and the pastries will get you in the right mood for a good start for the day!
    The “Relais de Vresse” is unmistakable, as Vresse is a small village, and the nice house, an old stage coach station, very nicely renovated is like winking to come in, and inside you are warmly welcomed, even at 8 a.m.: it is a hotel, so the staff is already busy.
    My young co-travellers were scared about their breakfast, but once we were sitting in a nice eating room, they were relieved when they saw the ham, the jams, the breads, the pastries, the fruit juices, the coffee, the tea, etc, arrive on the table five minutes after we stepped in! Excellent breakfast! From what I experienced that morning, I guess the hotel service and the restaurant are at same level: not pretentious, very good food and service, and very reasonable price; if you pass by Vresse, it may be worth to have a stop there and visit the village.

    Sir Anthony Van Dijck: Finest French restaurant in Antwerp

    by Luchonda Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The interior is unique - an old house in one of the oldest districts in the center of Antwerp
    saved for urbanisation plans of the city..
    The location is perfect for having an after diner fiest in the local bars/pubs.
    See my Antwerp page - but certainly look at IRISBE pages - she is the prof.!!

    Favorite Dish: Favorite Dish:
    The food is excellent - the servants professionals and very kind.
    The house accepts VISA card - but this is another political story for this town.(Local scandal)
    There is a business menu - changing every month !
    I enjoyed the salmon in a vinaigrette of flavours as starter and a salmon a la minute with pasta - a pinot noir as wine - afterwards the irish coffe and my thoughts in Francavilla when i had a glass of the best champagne !
    The dessert was the best mix of fruit and italian ice !

    Prices: VISA - so no comment for the Antwerp politicians !! (local history)

    The oldest guest ??

  • Cafe Leffe - Ostende: Ouch!

    by SE16 Updated Aug 14, 2010

    Reasonably busy - but the 3 of us were ushered to the crampest corner of the room. Served fairly quickly with drinks and starters arrived early - king prawns with garlic very good - but this was as good as it got. Mains brought fairly quickly after - however 2 entrcote steaks tough and chewy - looked and presnted well. No staff came to ask how things were until plates taken and comments made. Then left for 20 mins and...nothing... no appologies no dessert menu...nothing. We were stuck away in our corner and ignored. We got a waitress' attention & asked for the bill which arrived in seconds !! - I took my complaint to the main desk and after a bit of negotiation got a refund on one of the steaks. Will not return.

    Taste of India: Taste of India as it is...

    by Rosey-K Written May 19, 2010

    Quite a small and narrow restaurant, better make a reservation to avoid disappointment.

    Quality and taste of food are relatively good.

    Service is alright.

    Not too expensive.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Tandoori and Naan. Their freshly baked naan was light and fluffy, very tasty to eat together with the chicken.

    Chicken tikka masala also good.

    Clay oven grilled tandoori chicken. The interior of the india restaurant. Naan, basmati rice, chicken tikka masala and dhal.

    Nostalgia: Simply slavish greek restaurant!!!

    by Rosey-K Updated May 19, 2010

    We are lucky to have a seat for two and dined for just 1 hour and 15 minutes, as we did not make any reservation.

    Nice decoration in the restaurant, very friendly and quite pack with diners.

    Lovely smell of charcoal grill food serve on the table.

    So better make a reservation to avoid disappointment.

    Favorite Dish: My charcoal grilled chicken was superbly done, and served with a jacket potato. Simply delicious. Can't forget the charcoal grill aroma.

    The other dish that we enjoyed was charcoal grilled pork fillet skewer. Gosh......it was superbly done and super delicious. Also served with jacket potato.

    Not forgetting there were salads too.

    Value for money.

    Super delicious charcoal grilled chicken. Charcoal grilled pork fillet on skewer.

  • Couldn't tell you for life: Delicious Grill

    by Dajorodrigo Updated Apr 23, 2010

    Magnificient food, please do not go for for the atmosphere, but the food will make it worth the trip.
    (I actually ate multiple maincourses during one of my visits, I ordered 3 main dishes and if it wasn't for my girlfiend who wanted to go back to the hotel, I would have ordered another one.)

    Favorite Dish: Do yourself a favour and order: "Ossenhaas van de Grill" (Just great grilled piece of death cow) Not a place to go to if you're a vegatarian.

    Pickles: Go Figure

    by DueSer Updated Feb 28, 2009

    Who'd a thunk there'd be a good burger joint in Belgium?

    Well, I will admit that when I ate here I had been away from Los Angeles for almost 2 weeks and had eaten nothing but Dutch, French, and Belgian food so my discovery of this little restaurant pleased me no end. Maybe I just thought it was wonderful because I was SO very hungry for a burger. I've had a few burgers around the world and most places just don't do it right. I can count on one FINGER the number of good burgers I've had outside of the U.S. and that would be this place.

    Besides the burger, they had fantastic frites, second only to Leon's, in my opinion.

    It's a cozy place, not cramped. You order at the counter and they bring you your food when it's ready. The tables line the windows so you can watch the world go by while you eat. I enjoyed the food and the experience very much.

    Favorite Dish: Get a burger, frites, and a Coke.

    Chez Leon: Best Frites in the World

    by DueSer Written Feb 28, 2009

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place has been around since 1893 for two very important reasons: mussels and frites. The mussels come in a big wooden bucket. Then they bring you 2 bowls. One is full of frites and the other is empty for you to put empty mussel shells in when you're done.

    Everyone was very nice and seemed happy to be there and delighted that you walked in. The prices were very reasonable. I wish I hadn't waited until my last day in Bruxelles to eat there because I wanted to eat there again.

    Favorite Dish: The frites are amazing. I had a lot while in Belgium and these were by far the best. They are so light and not greasy at all.

    La Porta, Pasta.: Good healty food for less than 8 euros!

    by Miguelzgz Updated Feb 26, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is a small place located in a narrow street. We discovered it by chance and we had our lunchs the three days we stayed in Brugs.

    Pasta salads (half kilogram each, with apple, cheese, vegetables and diferent sauces). Sandwiches (big and with good french bread). Soups (traditional belgian) and GOFRES(delicious).

    It is ideal to grab your food and eat it at any of the squares around the restaurant. The lady who rules it is very kind and helpful.

    anywhere: Mussels with French Fries

    by Pedralho Written Oct 16, 2008

    Mussel stew with french fries are the national dish in Belgium. You can eat a lot more, of course.
    The price of a meal in a restaurant is around 30EUR (dish, drink), three times more than my home country.
    You have also junk food (cheaper) and ethnic food (a tad more expensive).

    Favorite Dish: Waterooi
