This is one of the many restaurants in Bruxelles with traditional food.
Brussels' cuisine continues to use recipes which were created in Medieval times, with mustard, vinegar, beer and a wide range of spices. A standard Brussels restaurant menu includes various types of fish, seafood and game. Vegetables are another important element, with potatoes being of primary importance.
Lunchtime and dinnertime in Brussels are quite typical for a northern European country. Lunch is usually eaten around 1 to 3pm, and dinner around 7 to 8pm. Breakfast and dinner are normally quite light, while lunch is considered the most important meal of the day. At lunchtime and in the evening, restaurants usually offer cheap plat du jour deals and fixed-price menus. One great option for a Sunday brunch can be a visit to one of the city's fancy hotels which offer a modestly-priced yet lavish buffet for around 20 Euro per person.
Prices at Brussels' restaurants vary widely. A simple lunch at an informal eatery shouldn't exceed 10 to 13 Euro, while a full dinner with dessert and wine at one of the city's culinary gems can total 200 Euro. Some say that whatever the price range, it's just impossible to eat badly in the capital of Belgium. However, even if you're on a budget it's recommendable to save some money for at least one proper feast in a fine restaurant, for the Brussels' haute cuisine is an experience that can't be missed.

Good capture of this traditional bistro. I like the framing and the tones and textures.

lovely crop this, it has an almost retro old Parisian feel about it although in Belgium. The elements here and rustic feel just shine through in this wonderfully executed and presented shot. Love it!
Regards - Brian.

J'aime beaucoup ce point serré sur cette façade. Même si elle est sombre elle est quand même invitante. Le cadre noir est très avantageux.

la tua foto è un piacevole ritaglio della città belga, fatto nel tuo piacevole e tipico stile che tanto piace.
Piacevolissimi i colori ed attraente il soggetto.
Ancor più bello averlo ripreso in un momento nel quale le luci sono accese e creano belle varianti sulla facciata.
Bella anche la cornice nera.
Ciao e buona serata

non ricordo il nome della strada, ma una di queste strade del centro è completamente piena di ristoranti ed ho mangiato in uno di questi, molto bene ed a buon prezzo.
Originale inquadratura, piacevole e curiosa.
