We went to the Brussel's for lunch. Casual and enjoyable; good variety of of foods available from very light to salads to more substantial fare. Portions were extraordinarily large.

“a mixed bag and a baby change”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

dinner for 2 on a Saturday night, so busy but no great problem just a longer wait for food. My wife's dish of kidney in Madeira sauce was fine, however a simple omelette and chips was beyond the cooks competence. Omelette burnt and chips must have been in the fryer 3 or 4 times they were so grossly inedible.I left dish almost untouched....Young waitress very embarrrassed but still charged it !!
While finishing our wine we noticed a young woman entered with a
baby in a pram...to our horror the mother proceeded to change the infant's nappy in full view of diners AND used a table in the restaurant for the purpose! That finished the evening in Brussel's.......

“Don't believe everything you read...”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

We did a bit of research before going to Arras and this place seemed to come high up on a few other sites. How badly can reviews go wrong?! My word this place was bad. Very shabby, poor service, waiters with BO that would stun a heifer at 50 yards, dirty, full of flies.
Beer was average, but the food was awful. My f-in-law had the worst steak I've ever been in the same room with. Poor, poor quality produce. We will never go near this place again!

“Nice simple steak meal”
Reviewed 10 April 2012 via mobile

Very good value, quick service and tasty meal on our first night in Arras. Being Easter Monday, most restaurants were closed, but The Brussels Cafe was welcoming and we were glad to be able to have a meal here. Great value and brasserie type atmosphere.
