In the trendy St. Boniface square sits this hugely popular brasserie (note: it was not possible to get a table for 8 earlier than 9pm on a Monday night for a same-day booking).  Belgo Belge is charming with good food. It has a warm, inviting atmosphere and it’s the type of place you can take your out-of-town friends to, have a birthday dinner, a coffee and a chat – and never be disappointed.  In fact, I have done all of the above!  Almost  all the classic Belgian dishes are recommended, as are the large variety of Belgian beers on the menu.  I took friends visiting from Melbourne, Australia there and they had a great time communicating with the French-only speaking waiter for beer recommendations.

The decor is simple and tasteful and the service on the better side compared to many other places in Brussels.  Just note not to order your steak “bien cuit” as their solution seems to be to cook it to the point of the meat being inedible.
