About the restaurant La Villette

IN AN OLD Brussels TAVERN, LA VILLETTE welcomes you with a large choice of traditional Belgian specialities (homemade Ostend prawn croquettes or little sausage kebabs served with two jams) and more than 40 different Belgian beers.

AS A MAIN COURSE: steak with Belgian cheese and Cantillon beer or mussels with chicory in lager will delight you.

TO END WITH A NOTE OF BEAUTY, why not let yourself be tempted by the Chimay crème brûlée, the crème maison flambé-ed in Calvados with buttery vanilla ice cream, or even by an old Dutch gin (Witteke).

Okay tartare, maybe not quite to my taste as it was a little pasty. Nice restaurant though. Shane it was too hot to sit inside. Would be great in autumn or winter as it would be very cosy.

This is a very typical, "upper scale popular" Brussels restaurant, with a lot of atmosphere inside (ads for beer brands from decades ago, old New Orleans jazz in the background when I was there) and nice terrace outside. The food is traditional Belgian, homemade of course and very well executed, tasty, frank, honest. Service is friendly, no fuss, quite like the setting. Reservation is necessary for dinner.

A fabulous little traditional Belgian restaurant. Food was first class and reasonably priced. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Everything we expected following researching on trip advisor. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place and would happily return again.

Very lovely little bistro in the St. Catherine neighborhood. The food was very good but the service was outstanding! Warm and friendly and inviting. The salmon with beer foam sauce was especially yummy.

This place is very charming and I would recommend it for a quiet gathering. They could lower their prices a little bit though.
