“great brasserie”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

We often want to go, but better reserve well in advance. It is a typical Belgian bistrot (I am not Belgian but has been a resident for 4 years). Food is always tasty and fresh; I love the terrasse in the summer. The site is gorgeous and the staff is friendly and helpful. A great address but well in demand!

“Average food, spectacular garden”
Reviewed 28 January 2012

My advice - go there in summer and sit in their fabulous garden. The food is so-so but a nice place to spend a Sunday afternoon.

“incorrect address”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

Just to let you know that the Maison Basse is not situated in La Hulpe in Belgium but in Lasne. We haven't been in a while because we've had very bad service there, however, we will try it again in the near future and hopefully the useless waiters will have been replaced by then. The owner was very unpleasant to us as well, maybe he'll be in a better mood next time.

“Lovely place, can be very busy”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

This is a very popular restaurant which can get very busy, you will probably need to book. It's in a lovely building and the gardens are beautiful, great for children to explore, but make sure they don't fall in a pond! The food is quite traditional but well presented. The steaks in particular are very well prepared and presented. A bit overpriced, but then it is in Lasne...

“Lovely Family Restaurant”
Reviewed 13 June 2011

This restaurant is just up the road from where we live and we visit every few weeks or so. Very surprised to see the previous reviewers comments as our experiences have been totally different. The staff are extremely efficient and friendly, particularly the Italian waiter, the food is very tasty, the lamb which is grilled on a charcoal fire is cooked to perfection. The property is surrounded by beautiful gardens and the shady terrace on a sunny day is picture perfect. We have noticed on our visits regular clientele who obviously return most Sunday´s to dine!
