1. Le Brasero

Le Brasero

A classic address in the neighborhood, Le Brasero has been around for ages, but in recent years it has returned to its roots with delicious Franco-Belgian cuisine and grilled meat. The menu changes around every two weeks, so the food stays endlessly varied.

2. De Maurice à Olivier

De Maurice à Olivier

From father to son, De Maurice à Olivier incarnates the wisdom and love of food passed on from one generation to the next. A real treat for gourmands, the cuisine is inspired by the seasons, with the game menu in autumn as a special highlight.

3. Le Nénuphar

Restaurant, Asian

Le Nénuphar has been serving wonderfully authentic Vietnamese food for almost thirty years. The interior is elegant and refined, staying away from the endearing kitschiness of other Asian restaurants. If there is one Asian restaurant in the neighborhood you need to go to, this is it.

4. Le Coq en Pâte

Restaurant, Italian

Winner of a ‘Bib Gourmand’ from the Michelin guide, Le Coq en Pâte is a classy Italian restaurant with a concise menu that puts the emphasis on fresh, excellent quality produce. A little pricey, to be sure, but it’s worth every penny.

5. Cook & Book

Cook & Book

The absolutely amazing Cook & Book combines two of the best things in the world – bookshops and restaurants. And it succeeds at both splendidly; there are several rooms (each with a different theme) concentrating on comic books, travel, art, music, kids’ literature, you name it. And those rooms aren’t just rooms either; there is a minivan in the travel section, a fiat in the cookbook section, and the gardening section is built like a greenhouse.

This is the perfect place to go to for a casual lunch or dinner. Thai Café serves all the classics of Thai cuisine for affordable prices, so you can order the dishes Thai style and share a selection. The interior is cozy and the staff is friendly and efficient; what more could anyone need?

7. L’Héritier

Cafe, Restaurant, Belgian

It is harder than it looks to find authentic Belgian cuisine in Brussels. L’Héritier is one of those Bruxellois bistros that serves exactly that – authentic Belgian cuisine, with all the ambiance of a typical Brussels cafe. Most of its customers are regulars, and it’s not hard to see why once you’ve visited it.

8. Osteria Il Gusto Italiano

Osteria Il Gusto Italiano

Another great address for Italian food in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert, Osteria Il Gusto Italiano is especially famous for its extensive selection of Italian wines, which match perfectly with every dish. The food is just as great, and customers even have the option of trying a dégustation menu so you don’t miss out on anything.

Osteria Il Gusto Italiano, 161 Avenue des Cérisiers, Woluwe-Saint-Lambert, Brussels, Belgium, +32 273 303 34

9. Yama Sushi

Yama Sushi

This is the place to be for Japanese food in the neighborhood. Not only is the price-to-quality ratio very good, the staff is also extremely friendly and efficient. Yama Sushi is one of those neighborhood staples that you keep returning to time and time again.

10. Le Moulin de Lindekemale

Le Moulin de Lindekemale

Not only is the French-inspired cuisine of the Moulin de Lindekemale excellent and refined, the setting is absolutely beautiful, as it is located in the historical Lindekemale Mill, which dates back to the 12th century. With its terrace located next to the idyllic stream passing the mill, this is an original and high-quality address to dine at.
