I went to Cool Bun because it was close to my hotel. I just wanted something simple and not visit any of the restaurants with overly complex menus and exquisite settings. The web site of Cool Bun looked good and so I just went there...More

Almost everything is homemade by the chef, he uses mostly organic and high quality products, his meat is the best I've had in a burger and I've tried over 85 burger joints all over the world...

Too long waiting for burgers. Service very rude when we said that we are waiting burgers for an hour. Although close to the institutions, you should avoid itMore

The menu has burgers of 16 euros and an 'upscale' gamme of 22+ euros. Weird enough I did not see where the price difference came from in the ingredients. It was okay, but Brussels offers better burger places than this one!More

Maybe the cost of ingedients used! But people don t usually think that passing from a cheese that is 10 euros a kilo to 25 might make a price difference! Everything is made in house comparatively with other Burgers places. We use organic ingredients. But...More

We ate here several times. The basic hamburger is very good. They have always specials, often *very* special (and expensive). Very attentive to the quality of ingredients, including organic ones. You will get the Belgian Ketchup, for instance .... The fish burger is excellent too....More
