Perhaps contrary to the impressions of most, Brussels is one of Europe’s gourmet centers, only outdone by Paris and London as the third most-starred European capital city by Michelin. Here are some of the best Michelin-starred restaurants in Brussels.
As the name suggests, Sea Grill specializes in all that is fish and seafood, making it one of the best places for such fare anywhere in Belgium. The restaurant is located within the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel and divided into five separate areas: three for dining, a bar, and an indoor smoking area. Each of these are decorated with subtle touches for a heightened atmosphere. With the option of a three-course lunch menu, it is one of the most affordable culinary excursions at such standards.
Le Chalet de la Forêt is located within a grand property spread across a lovely terrace surrounded by a magnificent vegetable garden at the edge of the Sonian Forest in Uccle. It is run by owner and chef Pascal Devalkeneer whose mission it is to serve the best of French haute cuisine in an elegant yet warm and inviting atmosphere. The menu changes regularly, mirroring the flow of the seasons, and in line with a dedication towards high quality simple products, small producers, organic farming, and protected designations of origin.
