    Very nice restaurant with pleasant atmosphere and good service. The food was delicious, especially meat dishes. What could be improved is the arrangement of tables in the room. We had to sit next to the entrance and it was not always ideal. The rest was great

    What a wonderful place to come to for a wedding anniversary dinner! All three courses tasted sublime, and the server/owner had some fantastic recommendations, particularly with wine to pair with the course. Would recommend 100%!

    The quality of the restaurants in Brussels keeps amazing me. I had had Le Fruit Défendu on my 'must to do' list for quite a while but never found the perfect ocassion to enjoy it until today. The concept is not only nice, but worked to perfection. Not only the food wins the gold medal, but the fantastic attention received. The menu offers plenty of options and changes every two weeks (if I recall properly) which makes it even more attractive. Once you try something for the first time to the point of loving it, then the eagerness to try it again knowing there will be something every time is just wonderful. From the apero (great gintonics, by the way) to the end of the meal i could come up with no complaints but only congratulating the chef and the team for such a great dinning experience. The cocktail de baby lobster levels the meal up from the beginning and the fish melts in your mouth. The dessert options are less numerous but the quality is remarkable, mostly if you are a chocolate fan. If you have a chance to get the baba au rhum, stop looking at go for it! A piece of fallen skies! My only suggestion, and the reason not to give the full score, is to add more freshy desserts (more fruity, to be more accurate). I am a dessert kind of person, not that much into chocolate or cakes (though, again, the baba... OMG), and i really missed that kind of fresh ending. Besides that, i would be happy to be your new taster if so you need! Thank you for the great experience!
