We were big fans of Pizza Hut in my long years in the USA, and once move to Europe we chase down. Unfortunately the ones in France dont do a good pepperoni lovers pizza and only in Luxembourg we do , then came Brussels and there was a pizza hut nearby so we try it one evening and it was fantastic just like I am used to
The service was done by an expatriate Spaniard Luis, and it was excellent, from reception, to seating to service and after service all was done fast courteous, and no need to ask for anything. The prices were good too.
its good for the family and the resto is large with glass views over the boulevard du jardin botanique a nice area full of shops, restos and fine hotels.
Favorite Dish: pepperoni lover's pizza pan crust the best chase it all over. the rest of the gang got it and cheeses and bolognaise pizzas with beers and coffees all for 78.10€ for five persons; good value
This is my all time best restaurant in Brussels, an institution in the city and even if time and fame has dwindle its charm over the last years it is still a must when I come into the city,and the family owners are wonderful to recognise me each time. This time I came with my family and it was a blast.
This is an unique trip to see something still from the old, even if fame from tourists over the years have made it a bit pricey. Its still worth it every penny of it.
The ambiance is of old Brussels, small place, serve by a staff that is all family and old employees, of great attention to details nothing needs to be ask all is brought in with perfection. a must still.
Favorite Dish: the onion soup was the best served of the entire trip almost perfect. We had civet de biche or female of deer ground beef in a sauce with potatoes and vegetables, the others had different cuts of meats steaks, and waterzooï belgian dish with chicken, all accompany by pints of beer jupiler and coffee expresso. bill 155€ nice.
very good, real italian cooking and servers, ours only spoked Italian, good deal to practice lol!! ciao bambino.
the service was very friendly, fast and no need to ask it was all there. The ambiance terrific like been back in Italia, and the food mamma mia!!! recommended.
the place was full with belgian and french families, we had a great time there and we will definitively be back when with the family;nice place cant said more.
Favorite Dish: we had onion soups, pizza salami, orvieto,tortonilli , spaghetti, gnokki all with beef, water, bread and butter, five coffee expresso, and a bottle of white wine from orvieto all for 90€ ! great value
The closest thing to a steakhouse in Belgium, they are a chain, and the one we went in manhattan center on botanique is wonderful, with good service, friendly folks. The ambiance is woodend and red like a western steakhouse , many locals there, and the food was great.
There are here since 2004, and the beef comes from Ireland, Argentina, Uruguay,and France.
Favorite Dish: we had 2 maes pints beer, 1 blanche pint,2 grimbergen blonde pints, 2 filet of beef 250 grms, 2 hamburgers XXL (huge); 1 spaghetti bolognaise for the wife, 4 coffees expresso, 1 banana split for 120€ so normal prices for us.
well one not good experience. It goes to show going to tourist places and getting tourist service and prices.
This was in the Village at Bruparck near the atomium and mini europe etc. We didn't wanted to come back to the city hungry so we stay here to eat. The service was very very slow, like not wanting to serve you.
we had to ask for everything from napkins, to bread to water, and once the main dish was serve, the desserts and coffee never came,not even to ask ,so we left paying just the main dish and a beer Jupiler.
Needless to say avoid this spot next time, not that it could be like this all the time, but one bad experience is all we need to leave it.
info on brupârck where the Village and restos are in the atomium, mini europe area.
Favorite Dish: none, but we had, 4 jupiler beers, one blanche or white beer, 2 hamburgers,1 spaghetti bolognaise, 1 spaghetti ham and cheese, 1 tagliatelle bolognaise, all for 71€
nothing to shout about here,avoid it.
This is a must even if we did just a beer apero, but needed to bring my boys in, its one of my hangouts when on business trips, so now the family follow my footsteps. The place is a charm, hear the music and take you away in old Bruxelles.
Its one of the incontournables unforgetables pubs of Bruxelles ,cant be here without stopping by. I know can't be here without going in.
Favorite Dish: the Westmalle, Cantillon blondes, Charles quint, and jupiler all taste great ::)
you can lower it down with some saucissé séche, and salami.
traditional and good been here several time ,practically each time in the city
hope it helps
Favorite Dish: filet of beef steaks are great, and sometimes the fish, I ordered the menu of the day, freshest and best always.
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!
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.
i have been to two, both nice one is Pergola
hope it helps
Favorite Dish: the ambiance, the service, and the traditional Belgium dishes of mussels with wine wines. Also the cocquilles St Jacques, search for them all over.
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)
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.
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.
