“Awesome Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

We dropped by a little too early for dinner so we sat around drinking beers while waiting for the kitchen to open. It's a nice relaxed place to chill after a long day exploring Brussels.

The attentive waiter came by our table as soon as the kitchen opened to take our food orders. Based on his recommendations, we ordered a beef cheek stew and rabbit stew. Both came out of the kitchen smelling amazing & were absolutely delicious.

We ate at another highly rated restaurant the next night & it did not come close to what Fin De Siecle offered. Fin De Siecle had far better food, service, and prices.

“FIN DE SIECLE, Bruxelles Best: Lapin&Suasages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

day train (one hour+) from Paris to Bruxelles with overnight stay - heard about Fin De Siecle because of their LAPIN - my favourite dish. i was not disappointed - it was REMARKABLE. the suasages also well known were ordered/why we were there - great beer and for dessert the most incredible tartintine (apple) that melted in your mouth. service was excellent ~ owner charming ~ by time we left it was packed with people at bar and outside ~ it was thoroughly delightful ~ i have touted it to everyone ~ friends/solo/couples - great fun~

“Abundant comfort food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

We came about 6:00 on a Sunday and it was not very crowded, but the place filled as the evening progressed. An unpretentious place and we were treated very graciously by the staff. The servings were huge, reasonably priced and reminded me of American comfort food. A very pleasant start to an evening in Brussels.

“All around great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

We decided to go here after a day trip in Bruges because it was one of the places that seemed to be open later. We were told a half hour wait and we grabbed a drink at the bar (good beer as usual in Belgium). The atmosphere was very warm. There is a giant chalk board in the right after the bar and this is where the menu is displayed, which is good to know if you are waiting because they don't give you menus. You sit at long community tables which is fun. The service was quick and very helpful. I had scallopini with vegetables and pasta, my husband had steak and a salad and our friend had a vegetable quiche. Everyone loved their food. Very tasty. It was comfort food at its best! Highly recommended.

“Favourite resto au coin”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013 via mobile

Always a family favourite. Small cosy with kitschy fin de siecle decor. It mainly serves very good pasta dishes but some Italian meat dishes on the menu. Fairly priced.
