Britxos opened its doors in the summer of 2012 to great fanfare among Brussels expat foodie community. We were already familiar with the team, from catering company La Britannique, for their incredible food and warm, friendly service.
Britxos is a cozy little bar in the St. Gilles neighbourhood of Brussels. It is filed with light from the huge windows and colour, from the chalkboard walls, filled with menu items and comments from past visitors.
The name is a play on British (chef and owner Alex's nationality) and Pintxos (the Basque word for tapas). Inspiration is taken from Alex's love of food and travel and each dish is named for the city that inspired it.
Every Monday night there is live jazz. Friday nights are the popular gourmet night,s with a 4 course fixed-price menu, and Sunday is the un-missable Britxos Brunch.
You'll hear every language found in Brussels being spoken here, while enjoying a fantastic and affordable meal.
