In an unlikely location, you'll wonder if you are at the right place. Inside a small, art deco style room, where you'll have ample opportunities to benefit from your neighbourghs conversations. Expect to spend about BEF 5000 + a piece with wine. Lunch at BEF 2100, other menus start €56. You need to book at least 3 weeks ahead if you

Make sure you take the royal crab as appetizer; there aren't many things better on earth. On the Sablon. 1 Michelin Star. The Chef has changed recently, let's see if this has had any impact

Best mussels in Brussels but the fish is excellent too. Feels like an old fashioned luxury brasserie. Very busy, better to book. I wonder how they keep quality constant given the size and the fact it's open non-stop

No set menus but a fairly extensive selection of belgian specialties, meat and seafood. Excellent mussels. Most surprising is the wine list, which includes all but one of the Bordeaux "super 1er crus" (can you find which one ?).

The rating is out of 20 as from my own judgement or Gault & Millau/Michelin when I haven't tested; only refers to quality of cuisine - even a 10 is a good mark
Prices are for 3 course meal and drinks - could be more if I choose the wines
