This was my 2nd visit to Le Bugatti, and just like the first time i visited, everything was excellent from start to finish. Service was excellent, food tasty and delicious. I highly recommend this place.
Do remember to book as it does get very busy, and to bring cash as well as they do not accept cards.

Everything about this restaurant was excellent. The nice setting that transports you back in time; the very warm owner who is very cheerful; the prices which, for Brussels, are definitely on the low range. Above all the food was delicious: I highly recommend the carbonade - the beef was melting and the french fries and still made the traditional way in beef fat, not new fangled soy or canola oil. This is the restaurant you should try for a taste of classical Belgian food as a reasonable price. Highly recommended!

This is a nice cosy restaurant with a retro feel corresponding to the Bugatti name. Everything they do seems to be cooked very well and prices are extremely good, especially for Brussels. When you can get Chateaubriand of such high quality (Irish Angus beef) served with vegetables and chips for €21 (€2.50 extra for sauce of your choice - well worth it), you know you've hit the jackpot! There is an extensive beer menu, which is rare to find in Brussels at a restaurant of this calibre, making for a nice change. Make sure you have cash, as they don't take cards. A great option for a memorable meal.

This place offers good, straightforward Belgian food. The restaurant is relatively dark and narrow (at least downstairs) but I like it, it feels intimate. The portions are ample. Warning they don't accept credit cards!!!!!
