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.

A green-and-white checkered floor, a traditional wooden bar and iron cast details all over the place: Brasserie de la Gare is bursting with 20th-century charm. Paintings by famous capital figure and true blue BrusseleirPaul Vankueken, father of the owner, adorn the walls. The staff is accustomed to travelers seeking refuge at their train station-adjacent digs so they always have a nice variety of Belgian beers at the ready to ease the wait.


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.

Les Uns Avec Les Hôtes

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.

San Daniele

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.

Mon Fou d’Mari

A real local favorite, Mon Fou d’Mari is the place any inhabitant from the area will send you if you ask where to go for Brussels’ specialties. With Jean-Yves and Abdel at the stove, the food is beer-based, Burgundian and above all comforting. Combined with a grade A mussels recipe and a jovial atmosphere, the small restaurant has kept locals coming back since 1999.
