    Excellent food with great wine pairing. I recommend the chef menu, the chef is really talented and masters fine cuisine. The only problem is the parking in the area so better to take a taxi.

    Service was friendly and attentive, but a few mistakes. One girl tried to clear my plate several times even though I hadn’t finished, once I wasn’t able to stop her and she just took off with it…

    The food was very good and the service as well! A cozy restaurant, with a few tables and pleasant atmosphere. I was fortunate to find parking nearby - not a given.

    The evening didn’t start well as the restaurant had no trace of our booking, fortunately there was still one table available. Apart from that , it was fabulous, delicious food, attractively presented.

    I was birthday yesterday, I write a note for a small cake and a candle when I book a table. But they said they only see it’s my birthday, didn’t see ask for a candle. Just really upset about this.

    Disappointing food, and poor service. We are big fans of fine dining but were let down by Stirwen. Our 6 course tasting menu toook 4 hours to complete - with a 45 minute wait between two of the courses. Some plates were well thought through but others simply did not work. Would not recommend.

    A lovely restaurant with wonderful food. We had the four course menu and the surprise by not knowing what was served amused us. The service was really nice and we, for sure, enjoyed our evening.

    In my humble view and according to my experiences, the Stirwen is the best restaurant available in Brussels. I have two reasons to say this: The food they serve is not simply good, but it is a piece of art. Amazing tastes are combined, offering a unique restaurant experience in the first place. Secondly, the service is above the highest standards. The waiters are beyond being most professionals because they are extremely kind and sweet persons, you feel like a close friend is recommending the dishes, and they really want you to enjoy your stay at the Stirwen as much as possible. I have a huge dislike in several restaurants all over the world, when you pick a dish to order, then the waiter tells you they are sorry, but they do not have the chosen dish today. It does not happen at Stirwen. Indeed, one fish on the menu was not available, such things happen. However, the waitress started informing us that she regretted it, but one specific offer was not available. This does not happen often, and this small episode speaks very highly about the place. I love Stirwen, this somewhat expensive restaurant, but I must say it worth each Euro you spend here.

    This was a very nice experience, a discovery in the European Center of Brussels. Last minute booking, received a call to confirm which shows some interest for the customers... we took the 6 course surprise menu with the house wines selection and have been really surprised by the mix of flavors and colors we got on our plates. They respected food preferences as we had no allergy and form the first course to the digestive we were very pleased. Service was good but could have been more attentive.. The price respected the quality of the experience. Probably a raising star. Strongly recommend and will definitively come back.

    Not impressed. De helft van de menu was slechts beschikbaar, zodoende er maar 3 gerechten over bleven . Geen aanrader ondanks de recensies. Jammer

    This was a terrible experience. When we came in it was okay. We were welcomed and introduced to our table. We choose for the full experience so the five courses and the wine arrangement. We were waiting for 15 minutes at the table before the menu came but we already knew what we wanted. Afterwards after the apperitive what was good we started with an amuse (what we found out) since we started with the ‘starter’ I asked about the wine. She said hu but this is not a starter so we did not get wine with it. We waited quite long so we didn’t had any drinks or the opportunity to order something. Afterwards we got three meals all with ice and really hot what is not really great with a stumach problems. They did not know what was in any meal so that was quite disappointing. I ended up at a food poisoning the crab was not good. I was sick for 4 days unfortunately so i really do not recommend this restaurant since we paid 280 euros for this experience.
