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

    by lmkluque Updated Apr 2, 2014

    2.5 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.

    Pizza Hut: an American in Brussels

    by gwened Written Jan 6, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    Chez Patrick: an all time classic at Patrick

    by gwened Written Jan 4, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    l'Arbre d'Or: Belges tourist arbre d'or

    by gwened Written Jan 2, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
    http://www.bruparck.com/parts.php?lan=3

    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.

    Poechenellekelder: real Belgian ambiance at Poechenellekelder

    by gwened Written Jan 2, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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)

  • 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.
