I Monticelli is somewhat legendary. The interior has improved a little since they moved to their new premises (think football posters and a disheveled billiards table to get an idea of their previous interior), but here the focus is all about the food. And the food is truly wonderful. A true family business, I Monticelli is the real deal, with fantastic, high-quality dishes by Chef Michaël and his family.

Another Uccle institution that simply should not be missed. Au Vieux Spijtigen Duivel is one of the oldest estaminets in Brussels. It is said that Victor Hugo, Charles Baudelaire and even Emperor Charles Quint himself all stopped here for a pint at some point in history, and it isn’t hard to understand why, as the Spijtigen Duivel is still just as charming as ever.
