On my last trip to Brussels, I ate at The Lobster House, which is close by the famous Grand Place - often considered the most beautiful square in Europe.
It was an awesome meal - with freshly baked bread by Karim, the owner, fish Soup and the Grilled Mixed Fish Royal, which is a big serving meant for two persons. The Mixed Grill is offered together with paella. There was half a lobster, king prawns, shrimps, sea bass, salmon and cod fish. The lobster was very fresh, and tasty. The salmon was a little over cooked, as I often find it perfect with a little of the meat inside left slightly uncooked. Both and sea bass and cod were very nice.
I enjoyed the fish soup, and the bread very much too.
It was indeed an excellent meal. The Mixed Grill costs €49, but worth every penny of it. I would highly recommend for all who love seafood and fish.
Karim, the owner is very friendly and will help you with your order of the food.
When you are in Brussels, don't miss out having a big feast here.
How to find The Lobster House
Walk along Rue De La Montagne, and when you see the SUPERDRY Store, right on the opposite side, you find the LES GALERIES ROYALES DE Saint-Hubert, walk through the arcade, and on the first left turn, turn Left and you will find the sign - THE LOBSTER HOUSE.

So sad we only got to visit here on the final 40 mins before we are to depart.
The female waitress was so genuinely chirpy and happy to serve us.
And the bakes of Kouign Amann and Chox with caramel cream. So heavenly good and my husband ( rarely) agreed with me when we are on the Eurostar.

Coffee House specialising in artisanally roasted, organic coffee from Ethiopia.
I visited Brussels wz my family fm Japan during
Xmas 2017 after two years.
I am a big coffee lover and so excited to find
a new coffee shop in the gallery shopping arcade next Grand Place.
The African paintings are very nice and its very
new to me, the Japanese!! I had a cafe latte wz
soya milk. The price is a bit less compared wz
cafe in Japan but the quantity and quality was
I have passed by the shop often and found a
long queue always.
I was very lucky to have it!!
Cannot find such a wonderful paintings which
captivated me in Japan.
Especially, the Japanese tourists & residents,
do not miss the Askum coffee in Brussels.
Should have it in Kyoto too!!

Absolutely the best pasta I’ve had- even in Italy! Patrizia is the chef and is a true gem!
Silvano takes care of every customer like family. Miriam, their daughter is superb. They are the sweetest Italian family! The waiters Joe and Nakita are so friendly and you feel like you are home. This is a must visit place when in Brussels! They are packed every night so make a reservation early! I recommend the squid ink pasta- my favorite bit you won’t be disappointed with anything as it’s all homemade with Amore!

I went here based on the reviews and was happy with a waffle with chocolate sauce on and my daughter enjoyed hers with banana slices on too. They are quite busy on a busy tourist street with lots of main shops on. Enjoy taking a breather from your shopping for a tasty treat!

Our Maitre Chocolatier is preparing some delicious tablets, mendiants, mousses and other sweets in a traditional way. We are also organize workshop. We are happy to welcome you every day from 11.00 until 18.00.
Neuhaus is one of the many chocolatiers visitors can try in Brussels. This business was founded in 1857 by Swiss immigrant Jean Neuhaus and now includes over 1500 branches worldwide including the a handful of branches scattered around the city centre.
Interestingly, Neuhaus claim to the creator of the popular Belgian praline chocolates. They also sell ganache, truffles and other chocolate treats. You can buy boxed sets or pick-and-match various chocolates that are available for purchase by the weight.
During our visit, we tried a cup of hot chocolate (4€) which was being heavily advertised at the shop. You can choose between milk and dark chocolate. We opted for dark which tasted pretty good. It is a bit milky but the chocolate tasted nice. It was enjoyed while walking around on a cold December day.
In the end, not the best hot chocolate we've ever tried but it was pretty good, potentially worth having again.

I really like this place! you can find various kind of Sandwich in here! Also he's only person who run everything in this place, so maybe it's take time for waiting or in queue. but i was so lucky that i haven't wait to long, i had try 37 on menu list and it's really really good! you will get whole piece of cheese and various type of cheese that you want to have. And Garby he's really nice and positive thinking guys and can enjoy to talk with him while we waiting or in queue.But Sandwich is really worth every single penny that you pay for hahaha.

We visited Brussels last month and had a very nice meal at Le Rabassier, a fine dining establishment which specialises in black truffle dishes. Opening hours are 12-1.30pm (lunch) and 7-8.45pm (dinner) from Tuesday to Sunday.
This is an elegant restaurant with only a handful of tables. As such, best to reserve well in advance if you want to dine here during visits to Brussels.
During our meal, we found the hostess to be professional and accommodating while the execution in the kitchen to be outstanding. Dishes were explained well in English, were very presentable and tasted outstanding. We also very much appreciated the chef coming out to discuss the age and source of the truffles. This was a very nice addition to the dining experience.
On the evening, we enjoyed the 'Black Truffle Tasting Menu' which can referenced directly on the restaurant website menu page. As fans of truffle as an ingredient, we found this multi-course meal to be quite excellent.
There was nothing served on the evening that we didn't enjoy. Favourites where the scallops with truffle, beef carpaccio (an alternate dish to accommodate allergies), foie gras with truffle and the cod & risotto with cream of parmesan cheese and truffle gratin.
In the end, we've dined at numerous Michelin restaurants in recent years that were a clear a step or two behind Le Rabassier. This was an excellent meal, one we would very much enjoy returning for during future trips to Brussels.
