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 it

Dear Sir, First your iq shows itsef by writing your comment on the wrong Cool Bun, because as far as everyone knows rue Berckmans is in St Gilles et not by the institution. Alexandra and Kinga only get praises for their service by the way. Even your girlfriend was ashamed of your childish behavior. So your order was in for... More

Dear Mr. Chef Pierre, I know you're gonna tell me to go McDonald's myself, but seriously, the whole thing is way too pretentious for a burger joint. Why put up signs all over the place telling people what they can and can't do? Why not offer various sharing options? (Sharing is caring, Mr. Pierre!) And especially, why the prices? Yes,... More

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!

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 yes please do go eat pre made frozen Monsato friendly ingredients. Thank you for you... 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. Good selection of bottled beers. A tad expensive but it worths it.

Our first idea was to find something convenient after a long walking day with 2 kids. We noticed this restaurant close to our place and we decided to try it. We has a really good guess. We like the decor from the outside. Cool but calm at the same time, hip but not poshy either.... They served organic burgers and... More

Attractive place that offers good burgers. Not the best in town but good. You will not make a wrong choice going there if you like burgers (or not). The day we went, no luck, the service was fairly slow (took us almost 2 hours for 4 burgers and a quick starter that they recommended).

I am quite picky about my burgers, but I definitely loved the place! Home made tasty food! It does live up to its name-the place & food are cool! I would recommend for a night out in Brussels.

Really cool atmosphere! We went there with my friends to have some dinner before hitting the bars, and gotta say it was totally worthy! The place itself has a fun decor and when is full it gets really cozy. My top of the tops was the mini burgers, which are delish! I would definitely go for it.

The taste was good...and that was about it! The service was slow and the personalized burger is a myth. They mixed our order and when we notify the waiters they accused us not to be clear enough in our order instead of simply apologies.
