After an overnights stay in Brussels city centre, we chose to have breakfast at La Brouette in the heart of the city at the Grand Place. I had a cheese omelette which was very light and most certainly the best I’ve ever had! My granddaughter...More

No bad comment will stop the tourists flowing to have a drink or a meal at this place but it has very bad management and a misleading offer. No problem to pay 6€ for a so called "fresh" squeezed fruit juice on one of the...More

No, do not eat here; it’s that simple. The food was OK, but there is much better nearby. The beer selection was poor and the service was worse. It should be noted that both my wife and I were servers/bartenders for over 10 years and...More

« La brouette » is the house of the corporation of the “graissiers”. It is Saint-Gilles, their patron saint, who watches over the destiny of this welcoming and rustic tavern. Open fire, ancient chandeliers, “patinés” floors and well-dressed waiters are some elements that will assure a good moment. The menu accommodates small hungers but big ones too. While making your choice you can savour a “pils” or a special beer”. This pleasant place allows you to “play tourist” from time to time to contemplate this unique Grand Place that Victor Hugo loved so much!
