The Best Fine Dining in Brussels
Collected by Alison Cornford-Matheson , AFAR Local Expert

Gangstraat 5, 1050 Elsene, Belgium
When people ask for my top restaurant in Brussels, I have to think twice, not because of indecision, but because I'm reluctant to share. If I like the person a lot, I tell them my secret - Le Coin des Artistes. Just about all of my favourite...
Place Saint-Josse 9, 1210 Saint-Josse-ten-Noode, Belgium
The authentic Italian restaurant La Mamma is in my neighbourhood, although it took a while for me to notice it. In fact, I walked by its vine-covered facade for two years before I ever set foot in the restaurant. It wasn’t until I noticed it in a...

Rue Haute 198, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium
On the bustling Rue Haute, in the heart of Brussels Marolles district, is Le Wine Bar. Located in a typical 17th century house, as the name suggests the main feature is wine, but that is certainly not all. The menu is short and heavy on meat...
Alsembergsesteenweg 108, 1060 Sint-Gillis, Belgium
I’ve had so many great dining experiences in Belgium, it’s hard to choose a favourite. I can say, without reservation, La Buvette is in my top five. La Buvette is warm and classy without feeling overly stuffy or formal. The concept is simple – one...
