When it comes to Saint-Agatha-Berchem’s foodie scene, the main attraction by far is its smattering of authentic bistros and surprisingly good Greek food. Here are the best restaurants in the Brussels commune.
Who knew one of Brussels’ best Greek restaurants was hiding in the peaceful streets of Saint-Agatha-Berchem? Besides the obligatory Doric columns, Olympiade leaves most of the typical decorative frills behind and focuses on traditional cuisine. And if you’re lucky, you’ll get a side of live Greek music with your dinner to boot.
Small, French and hardly visible from the busy Chaussée de Gand, Les Uns Avec Les Hôtes is the area’s best-kept secret. Constant quality, a selective menu and the necessary plating artistry have earned the place a following of loyal customers, so make sure to book a table in advance.
Behind the Basilica of Koekelberg you’ll find Ristorante San Daniele, where Chef Franco Spinelli and his team form the exception to the area by getting about as high-brow as Saint-Agatha Berchem will ever get. Named after the special kind of quality ham that prosciutto is made of, the Italian spot serves up pure produce from the homeland along with a wine selection to adore.
