Uccle is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Brussels. Covering quite a large area, it is mainly residential, housing predominantly well-to-do families. As a result, the restaurants in the area might not be the most budget friendly, but they exude class and sophistication, prioritizing quality over quantity, and the result is worth every penny. Read on for our round-up of the best restaurants in Uccle.
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.
