Always have to visit this gem when in Brussels. As usual never fails to deliver. Everything was perfect, the service exceptional and everybody just so friendly. Thanks again and hope to be back soon!
The setting and atmosphere are great and so is the service. Good food too all in all with a fair value for money. To repeat for sure.
A classic of Belgian cuisine and Brussels. But a bit worn down by all of the tourists. Still, we sat at Table #225, that of Mr. Jacques Brel. For that alone, it was worth the trip!
Amazing place in the heart of the old town with warm service. Food was great as well, should have the mussels. A must go place ,overall a gem in Brussels...
Very polite and helpful personnel, professional attitude. Food was great, meeting the expectations we had. Nice and cozy atmosphere. Strongly recommended.
Expected more, but still found a uniq European restaurant like in rather old moves and it is really great to feel yourself some 30 years ago in a respectable dinner place! Meat and wine are pretty good. Were missing privacy a bit because of very close sitting (table to table) and sometimes too active waiters.
Very good food, although pricey. The environment is rather pretentious and noisy. The service and staff attitude can certainly be improved.
That was a test because I wanted to see it after the closure. I also heard different feedback from bad to good. Very good experience ! Good food. Nice Saumur - Champigny wine. I will be back !
Everything was wonderful - we will be back :)
Avant un spectacle.
One of the best restaurants i’ve visited in a long time, good service and the food there is absolutely amazing! Definitely should try it.
Service could be much better, waitress drop oil on my pants without taking any responsibility or excuse for it sad experience the food was nice too
An excellent restaurant; very traditional little venue - felt like stepping back in time! Food was excellent - ordering from the set menu, the food was delicious, as was the wine. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, despite my garbled attempts to speak French!
Amazing Lobster and desserts (creme bruleé and waffle) great service, English speaking if you're a tourist. Busy so make sure you book in advance.
The food was beyond mediocre but the service was horrific. We should have left when we saw photos of food on the menu. Or when the waiter was terribly rude from the get go. I had to put on my cost to walk out to get our main course. After 2 hours. They offer you one piece of slightly stale ( presliced) bread. Nothing to recommend it but the location. I give half of a half a star. Avoid at all costs.
waiting for our tabel to be ready a apertive was offered
Great food and service
Food excellent. Beautiful dining room. Service not good- don't leave Natalie a tip, she is not at all attentive, we waited a long time between every aspect of the meal!

Rue des Bouchers 13, 1000, Brussels, Belgium
En 1958, le restaurant connait le début d’une période faste avec l’Exposition Universelle qui a fait de Bruxelles le centre du monde pendant 6 mois.
Au début des années 1970, Jacques Veulemans, un des fils de Calixte, crée à l’extérieur du vénérable établissement, dans la Petite rue des Bouchers le « Comptoir des Armes », un bar à tapas à la belge.
Il y travaille entre autres avec son épouse, Madame Suzanne et son fils Laurent.
Le tout Bruxelles s’y retrouve pour boire le coup et y déguster les classiques de la maison, en petites portions, tout en faisant la zwanze une bonne partie de la nuit.
Les « Armes de Bruxelles » connaissent alors deux décennies fastes, contribuant à la réputation festive de l’Îlot sacré, destination gastronomique de la capitale.
En 2006, la famille Veulemans revend l’affaire. Le restaurant vit alors quelques années agitées avant d’être repris en 2018 par Rudy Vanlancker, propriétaire de Chez Léon, un proche de la famille Veulemans depuis toujours.
Une sorte de réveil pour cette vieille dame endormie depuis 2006.
