    Chou is a true gem in a city filled with wonderful places to eat. It’s menu is small and highlights the concept of offering a few things done really well. I look forward to visiting again.

    Very tasty and well presented dishes. Helpful and friendly staff. A couple of mishaps with the wine but the waiter was helpful and accommodating to make it right.

    It is a small and really cosy restaurant with an open kitchen. The carte is limited to 5-6 starters and plates hence the quality follow. Nice presentation and good dishes.

    Nice place with a very good cuisine. Only the service was kind of unfriendly and not very charming to the place.

    We enjoyed our dinner, the food was excellent. The prices are a bit high, but it was worth it. A very nice surprise, one of our best places so far in Brussels.

    A lovely restaurant, but the tables are massive so not at all intimate.

    Nice place with typical French cuisine. Portions not exactly generous and a bit too expensive compared to what you get. Anyway, the quality of the materials is very high

    This is a great place with charming atmosphere. At the same time it is rather simple and light than posh and pretentious. The cuisine was delicious!
