Having visited the place a couple of times I feel I can say with confidence that this is a good restaurant. The interior has a lot of atmosphere of the 'old times'. Nice tables with red and white checkered tablecloths and likewise napkins. The restaurant is quite small, but it was not full the Wednesday night we visited without having... More

I was served with a burnt piece of steak after waiting for more than one hour . When i told the owner that the steak was burnt she did not apologize nor offered a solution. More and above, they didn't even excluded from the bill. However, the younger waiters were very nice. Still doesn't change the fact that I'll never... More

The Saint Boniface is a nice place to return to, as people have been doing since 1987. Tucked away near the church of the same name, in Brussels' Matonge district, the restaurant not only has that old-timey feel, but it serves up tasty recipes that are sometimes hard to find elsewhere. I thought I'd mention it, because you don't always... More

It looks like one of those super nice parisian bistros. Too bad that if this restourant was located in Paris it would have probably failed already. The food is not bad, but definitely not worth the price (at least 40 euro per person).

Second rate food. The cadre was cute French bistro style. Service pleasant. Prime location. Lots of atmosphere. My starter :ecrevisse and French bean salad : uncertain freshness of crustacea and beans virtually uncooked so that they couldn't be cut. Tête préssé main dish was TOTALLY DEVOID OF SALT. Now we eat organic food at home. This doesn't require much salt,... More

Food is a very good interpretation of mostly rustic dishes (the cassoulet is excellent), the wine list is good, and the service good but with room for improvement - hence the rating "very good" rather than "excellent"; rather too often there was no one in the room, or no one paying attention to the customers.

A tiny little place it is this nice restaurant. I have been going to this place for 14 years now and it never let down the reasons why I returned - good to great food with a menu taking you through the corners of great rural French cuisine. Brave plates with one of the only places in Brussels that will... More

I Liked the fact that you could order a drink at an outside Cafe accommodated with a Cannabis cigarette, to be smoked in a legal, relaxed atmosphere...great!

The restaurant is situated in a small square surrounded by other restaurants. It looked so appealing...The food is classic French and there are many specialities from different regions of France. The service was excellent and the menu so extensive that it took ten minutes to decide from all the options. I shared a goose rillette with my colleague (which was... More
