La Taverne du Passage

Reopened in 2021, the soon to be 100-year-old Taverne du Passage is an icon of the Brussels restaurant scene. Perfectly located in the superb Galeries Royales, this restaurant with a retro chic look (the Art Deco building is listed as a historical monument) immerses its visitors in 20s nostalgia. With a highly professional service, La Taverne offers a classic menu of Belgian dishes revisited with a modern twist by chef Antoine Mariscal. It’s wholesome, home-made flavours on a plate.

Chalet Robinson

Located on a small island on a lake in the heart of the Bois de la Cambre, Chalet Robinson will delight young and old alike with its boat trip across the lake, which is a bit of an adventure. Come and warm up in this charming setting with a breathtaking view of nature. We happily linger there for a hot chocolate, a Brussels waffle, or simply for one of the generous dishes on offer (there is always room for a boudin-compote, Americain with chips and a mushroom fristouille, right?).

The Les Brigittines restaurant is located in the heart of Brussels, a stone's throw from the Grand-Place, the Sablon, the Palais de Justice and the Marolles. In the special atmosphere of its Art Nouveau setting, it offers classic French-Belgian cuisine based on fresh seasonal products and beers.

Auberge des Maïeurs by La Finca

On the Parvis Saint-Pierre in Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, the Auberge des Maïeurs is an urban farm offering organic local cuisine. The site, with its rustic accents, is listed as a Brussels heritage site and dates back to 1748 (although it was destroyed by fire in 2009). The softness of its seats, the warmth of the exposed beams and the plant decorations instantly make you feel good. The inn can boast of having been the first certified organic restaurant in the capital. The agricultural cooperative La Finca, located less than 6km from the restaurant, provides the organic fruit and vegetables and the fresh eggs. The cuisine is Belgian and French, and some products are available for sale in the small organic store next door.

Flamme

Cosy and friendly, Flamme boasts a high-quality, local menu. The vegetables come from a nearby cooperative called "Terroirist" and the sausages are from Dierendonck, a famous Flemish family butcher. The burger has breads from Boulengier, with meat or veggie fillings. You can also opt for the very traditional (but no less perfect) stoemp-saucisse. The room is dominated by a large central wine cellar and the floor shines with its superb period mosaic. A perfect combination for some quality time.

Bruxelles

Odette en ville

A hushed setting and a sober but resolutely modern atmosphere in the upscale Châtelain neighbourhood. The restaurant has all the glamour of New York's boutique hotels and its menu offers classic dishes with an Asian twist. Enjoy the freshness of a simple, sophisticated cuisine, which uses high-quality produce and a menu that changes according to the seasons and the chef's mood. Odette en ville also acts as a cocktail bar. Stylish, but casual.

Campo

The decor takes us to warmer climes, enhanced by bursts of colour from the tables. But you’ll also find comfort on the plates with to the healthy, globetrotting brasserie menu which takes you around the world, with a particular focus on Argentina. Vegetarians and vegans will love it too. And to make the atmosphere a little warmer, Campo's kitchen opens onto the room.

Tontons

"An Italian spaghetti bistro with a Belgian twist". This is how Tontons introduces itself. A central dish that can be adapted to any sauce, in vegetarian or meat versions, and served in medium or large portions (for those with eyes bigger than their bellies!). There are also classic aperitif platters and an appetising dessert menu. The products are organic and sourced from local artisans and merchants. Perfect for a comforting dish.

L’Aubette

The term "Aubette" refers to the bus shelters that protect public transport users. This sense of refuge and security fits perfectly with this small, popular corner restaurant on Rue Blaes. Bright and cosy, L'Aubette offers a cuisine based on hearty salads and tasty brunches at the weekends. It’s a place - sometimes a victim of its own success - where you can snuggle up with friends.

Le Balmoral

Located on Place Brugmann, Le Balmoral stands out with its retro American diner look from the 50s and 60s. A feast for the eyes with a kaleidoscope of pastel colours, a flashy jukebox, a statue of Betty Boop, ... In short, its entire image is very "Marilyn Monroe". The place, which started as a milk bar (milkshakes remain their speciality), has now established its status as a diner thanks to its bagels and burgers. But Le Balmoral also leaves room for sweet treats, including crepes and waffles, and is known for its American breakfasts.
