I was taken to this restaurant by clients for a business lunch. It is set in a quiet area on the outskirts of Brussels with free on street parking. The interior of the restaurant was very well decorated, and the welcome from the staff was very friendly. There was a great selection of dishes on offer and the waiter was... More

Not a very large menu but excellent selection of entrees plats principaux et desserts. The sol was large and really excellent. Try also the cheese croquettes from the chef. And the ice coffee with glenfiddich for the final touch. Small place with excellent vibes!

Relatively hidden, rather discreet in a very normal street, I have visited Spectrum already several times. A relaxed atmosphere, good service & even better food. Meat lovers will recognize that Spectrum is among the best in Brussels, but if you like something else the varied menu gives you plenty of choice. I have a standing appointment there once a year,...

Nice Belgian/Asiatic mix for a reasonable price. Fresh ingredients and the menu changes every 8 weeks. Better call ahead because the place is packed, even on week days. Parking not so easy.

This restaurant remains one of the greatest places to eat a fresh and good meal at a good price. The cook himself does the shopping in the morning to assure the best quality every day. Not once have we been disappointed when it comes to the quality of the food. The price of a menu (appetize, entrée and dessert) is... More

For many years, Spectrum has been one of my favourite restaurants for lunch/dinner with family/friends/business colleagues. The menu boasts some of the best Belgian food - with classics like l'américain (beef tartare) or seasonal dishes with asparagus, mussels or pheasant - but also more exotic dishes like Thai carpaccio or chicken red curry. My all time favourite is the pavé... More

We had a good night at this restaurant. The food was really delicious, high quality. The service however was bad... Only the well known customers get high service. We wanted a dessert but had to wait at least half an hour.

Thank bramzo
