True Belgian dinner experience with service improvement potential: Restaurant Stirwen (19. December 2016)

From an overall perspective, dining at the Stirwen is something I can definitely recommend. However, there are a couple of things where the restaurant has room for improvement. I had booked a table just shortly before showing up and it was not a problem getting one (probably, the fact that it was a Monday evening […]

Lovely Italian wine bar with great lunch offering: Restaurant Winehouse Osteria (19. December 2016)

I am usually not going to Italian restaurants unless I’m in Italy (or maybe in my hometown) but given I didn’t have breakfast, had done a walking tour in the cold, and last but not least was hungry as hell, I decided to go to the closest good place (according to TripAdvisor, #4 in Brussels) […]

Below average Belgian food: Restaurant L’Esprit de Sel Brasserie (18. December 2016)

Below average Belgian food: Restaurant L’Esprit de Sel Brasserie (18. December 2016)

The restaurant was recommended to me so I decided to give it a try – but frankly speaking, it was quite a disappointment. I went for the “monthly menu” (EUR 34.00) which started with a “lobster bisque with Irish whiskey”. The bisque was too watery and tasted like sea much more than actual lobster. At […]

28. June 2015: Friterie Chez Georgette

If you are starving and are incredibly thirsty, the “Friterie Chez Georgette” is definitely the place to go. I went for the “French Fries” (EUR 4.50) with “Ketchup” (EUR 0.60) and “Sauce Tartare” (EUR 1.00). The French fries are super crispy and good in tasty – as simple as it is, as good the fries […]

27. June 2015: Restaurant L’Autre Grain

I kind of randomly encountered this restaurant looking for a place which was close to the hotel I stayed at and through randomly google mapping I found “L’Autre Grain”. When you find the place make sure to not walk by – as the entrance is not as visible as it could and should be. However, […]

27. June 2015: Restaurant De Reften

I found this little gem in a local guide and I must say it was absolutely worth visiting – as a little appetizer besides the usual bread and spread some “parmesan crackers mit raw vegetables and mayo made from anchovies” was served. My personal highlight was the raw cauliflower as I have never had that […]

26. June 2015: Restaurant Au Vieux Bruxelles

It is approximately 5 years ago since I have been to Brussels and funny enough, the first evening in Brussels I unknowingly ended up in a place where closely to where I’ve been 5 years ago. Belgium is – among other things – known for their “Moules & Frites” which is “mussels and fries” so […]

13. May 2012: Restaurant L’Epicerie @Le Méridien Brussels

The breakfast buffet of the Restaurant L’Epicerie @Le Méridien is quite okay but not overwhelming. The breakfast accounts for around EUR 25.00 (do not exactly know as it was included in my rate, so it is a mere guess). The buffet offers fresh fruit, various kinds of bread, cereals, cold cuts and cheese as well […]
