I ate here tonight . The location is good and our server was very nice. The burgers were OK but not what I would call great. Not sure why they serve fries as an extra? Who goes for a burger and not have fries? It is a high churn business I accept that, however my Wife heard a member of... More

A colleague suggested lunch at Ellis so six of us took up the suggestion and had a very enjoyable meal. The burger selection is great and there are three veggie options too - my carrot burger was delicious. Surprisingly fries are extra but well worth it. At 18 euro for a burger, fries and a small beer this is hardly... More

Very friendly place, burgers and belgian fries were delicious! If you don't feel like drinking alcohol you should try their homemade lemonade.

We had seen the gourmet burger sign and had hoped this would be something to remember. Sadly our evening was not a good experience, the waiter forgot both our drinks and food over and only after being prompted 20 minutes later by my husband getting up from his seat and finding our waiter did he sort them out. Then when... More

Very nice ambient. Food is delicious and not expensive. Definitely try cheesecake, one of the best I ever had.

I know, it is a franchise and hipsters/alternatives might be disturbed by that. I don't have problems in this regard as long as food is good..and hamburgers are very good at both the Ellis places I tried (St Catherine and Pl Jourdan). One tip is to avoid taking the starters they sometimes have in the menu as specials. They're not... More

We had dinner over here on Saturday and we enjoyed the place very much. We sit at the bar because the place was completely full and it was still comfortable enough. We had two fish burgers (salmon) with french fries and we enjoyed those a lot. They were the right size and really tasty. The bill was fair and the... More

The burgers were nothing special, the meat was pretty dry, and the prices were too high for such a burger! Besides, one of us didn't get the chips (by the time they arrived we had our dinner finished).

The burgers​ were quite good, service reasonable but when asked for tap water the waitress refused and said they are only allowed to serve bottled water. Now the water in Brussels is perfectly safe and at over €9 for half a litre it's just a big rip-off. Terrible scam to squeeze extra money out of families like ours and ridiculous... More

Hello Paul We're sorry to hear you found this very disturbing. It's not custom in Belgium to give tap water and it's certainly not our intention to scam you. Nice to hear though you found our burgers quite good! More

Ellis is a gem of a restaurant tucked into the heart of St. Catherine's in Brussels. I wasn't sure there were any new twists to put on a burger. I was wrong. I had the lamb. Cooked to perfection and delivered with great friendly service I will be back again and again. Don't miss this.

Thank Steve M
