On the top floor of the "Viage casino in downtown Brussels sits "Kameleon Sky" - a trendy business restaurant. There is outdoor seating (reserbation strongly recommended) offering a view of Brussels' skyline. The menu offers a fair number of chocies, the plates are very nicely presented and the quality is excellent. The prices are somewhat on the high side (~15 for an appetizer, ~30 for main course), but the "special menu" offers a great value at ~45 Euro for a three course meal (and just like when ordering a la carte you will get some amuse-bouche plates in between). Service is very friendly and multi-lingual with a smile. The decor is full of design elements (and has color changing LEDs just about everywhere). I definitely recommend this restaurant for a business dinner - the prices and the way the restaurant has been organized might be less suitable for a romantic dinner for two. (my last visit: July 3rd, 2010)

Dress up, bring your wallet (with some plastic) and enjoy dinner at this trendy restaurant in Brussels' Louiza district. We went there on Friday evening 5/28 - and enjoyed their "3 course menu" with 2 choices for apetizers, entrees and dessert. Cospaia was larger then expected: a nice bar area, plenty of outside seating (for which it was a bit chilly yesterday) and two dining rooms: white or black (we picked the white room, as it looked roomier and more inviting). The menu (at 42 Euro per person, excluding drinks) offered a good variety - and each of the plates offered plenty of food (larger than you would expect). Most of the staff speaks dutch-french-english - but our waiter refused to switch to Dutch or English and continued to address us in French causing plenty of confusion when taking our order. The tempura vegatables and scampi were a very good apetizer, the beef entree was just average (the other choice, a salmon with canelloni looked like a much better choice), and the red-fruit Tiramisu as dessert was ok. So: nice and trendy place, friendly and adequate service (our waiter seemed to be the only exception), good size dishes, could/should have been more unique/special for this price range. Overall a nice dining experience - allbeit a bit pricy for the fixed menu options provided.

We had a nice business dinner at Kwint, the restaurant at the new Square Conference Center in downtown Brussels, on Tuesday May 25th - overall a very good experience with some specific points for improvement. Kwint offers a great view on downtown Brussels combined with a stylish and artsy interior. The menu is fairly limited, but with excellent choices. A lot of the menu items, even the desserts, have truffels integrated in them - in fact, if you do not like the truffels taste you might want to skip out. Overall a bit on the expensive side - which should not be a surprise as the menu is available on the website. A few remarks related to the menu: one item of the menu was not available (the mussels), and there were no specials or suggestions. In this kind of place, you expect either a regulary changing menu and/or daily suggestions - there was none of that. The veal was just excellent - in terms of taste, presentation and combined with the many cooked-to-order vegatables. The dessert, a moelleux of chocolate, was disppointing - nothing special and I would be surprised if it was made in-house (it tasted about the same as the one from Delhaize) and it took less than five minutes to bring it down...

Great little place to enjoy a nice dinner - and to go back often. Daily changing Italian menu (including deserts!), with personalized and (very) friendly service. Limited seating (there is a cellar with additional seating, but the upstairs area is so much nicer !). Might be a bit noisy (tables are close together) for a business dinner, but it sure is an excellent place for meeting up with friends.

Formal and expensive restaurant in downtown Brussels - located in the historic Metropole hotel. A typical three course menu will set you back ~80 Euro (without wine). On weekday evenings there are definitely not many people around... which feels a bit uncomfortable as the dining room is a straight rectangle with all empty tables in plain view. The dishes are including a mix of many things - sometimes you get the feeling that the kitchen is just trying a bit too hard to make everyting special. I give "ambiance/sfeer/interior" a 5/10 - as in this price range and in this wonderful hotel you simply expect better. Not really my favorite, as it feels a bit too "stuffy" (both the surroundings as well as the service). One last remark: they do have a great wine list !

Convenient restaurant close to the "gedempte zuiderdokken" - the main square in Antwerp for larger events like Cirque de Soleil and the like. Good selection of Belgian dishes (but nothing really special) - and typically some attractive specials (better creativity here!). Do try the cocktails ! Good for a nice and good dinner with friends (i.e. before one of these events). Tables are a bit close for a business discussion - and not really a "romantic place" neither.

Traditional Antwerp cafe and restaurant on the far corner of the grand place. To get to the restaurant you need to pass through the (smoking-allowed) cafe. Once there you will get a nice selection of typical Belgian dishes like Tomatoes & Grey Shrimp salad, beef stew, mussels, ... at very affordable prices. Food quality is good, service is friendly even with larger and loud groups. Definitely a place to stop by to get a "Belgian Fix" while visiting the city.

Don't visit this restaurant on a 'special' or very busy night - that's the least you should know. I'm going to assume that they do a great job when they have a little more time (the place looks great, good waiters, extensive menu, fresh seafood) - but avoid the place when it is crowded. We went down there on Valentine's evening - after having made reservations through DiningCity and receiving an email confirmation from the manager. But they couldn't find our reservations when we got there ?! The confirmed reservations were for 9pm, but as they were serving two shifts there was a *big* crowd waiting... so we ended up getting seated at 9:28. So far for a reservation. The Valentine's menu (55 Euro) was rushed - to say the least. We got the cocktail, the apetizer, the wine, the main dish and the desert all served in just less than 60 minutes... and then we waited another 50 minutes to get our coffee and the check. I expect less of a rushed service when I pay 55 EURO for a three course menu with cocktails and wine. The apetizer arrived when we had just received our cocktails, the main dish was served before the apetizer plates were removed... The food (the menu items, the quality) was fine - and the tasted were great. But the tagliatelli served with the main dish were cold - likely again because of the busy evening. Not sure I want to try this again... And one more tip: if you plan to have a romantic dinner, ask for a table on the 'etage' - as the tables downstairs were just 4 inches apart... (but yes, overall they have done a great job in renovating this place and keeping the authenticity)

Nice location, and a great patio when the weather is nice. The main dishes were very good (and nicely presented), but the appetizers and deserts were from a different level. It's never a good sign when your server is reading magazines in between. Food prices are a bit high - but a three course menu offer at 32.00 Euro with free choice of all menu items wasn't that bad (if the deserts and appetizers would have been at the same level as the main dish). Because of "technical issues" they were not taking credit cards (cash only) and a receipt was also not part of the standard service - strange.

Trendy place in downtown Antwerp. Finding a parking spot is equally challenging as finding a free outside table in this trendy restaurant (definitely sit outside if you can!). The descriptions on the menu are over-the-top, and when challenged the waiters will translate them for you in statements like 'oh, that's just some salad'. But... good variety of food choices, and a nice place to spend some time enjoying the food and people watching.

Trendy place in downtown Antwerp. Finding a parking spot is equally challenging as finding a free outside table in this trendy restaurant (definitely sit outside if you can!). The descriptions on the menu are over-the-top, and when challenged the waiters will translate them for you in statements like 'oh, that's just some salad'. But... good variety of food choices, and a nice place to spend some time enjoying the food and people watching.

This used to be one of the most trendy places in Brussels. The food and the service are still great - but the crowds are no longer there. Reservations are still desired, but you shouldn't have that much difficulties to get in. There is a valet parking service (one of the only ones in Brussels next to Comme Chez). A good variety of meny choices - and typically some well thought out specials. If the weather is nice, you should request outdoor seating which is in an enclosed patio. Good place for business dinners and able to handle larger tables as well.

Located on the always busy 'Place Jourdan', La Madonna is one of the many restaurants catering to the people working at the European institutions and the families living in Brussels' City center. They have a great patio - typically filled with people (even when the neighboring venues are close to empty). Good service (the 'boss' of the house is keeping a close eye on this, and she's not afraid to tell the servers what to do) and good food. Portions are not large - in fact when you order mussels you likely will come away hungry (they are served on a plate instead of in a bowl). Appetizers are priced way too high (14 Euro for Calamari Fritti and you get only 15 small rings) - but again quality is fine. Prices of the drinks are kept reasonable. Conclusion: nice place for a quick stop and a good lunch/dinner, but too expensive in its class so watch out what you order.

Great place to sample frech seafood platters - prepared in a simple way allowing to savor the real tastes. Limited choice with daily suggestions, assuring freshness. Not cheap at all, but worth the price (go for one of the combination platters, you won't be disappointed). Side dishes (vegetables etc) need to be ordered separate, further adding to the dinner bill. Tables are a bit close together - in a clean/upbeat decor (I did like the goldfish :-).

Quiet place in the middle of Antwerp. If you do not know where to find this restaurant do ask someone instead of running around the block several times. Need to ring the doorbell to get in. Good quality food and service. Budget in this listing is overstated (listed as ~70 Euro, but 50 Euro will get you a three course dinner and drinks). Some tables are very close together (in the larger middle section).

Quiet place in the middle of Antwerp. If you do not know where to find this restaurant do ask someone instead of running around the block several times. Need to ring the doorbell to get in. Good quality food and service. Budget in this listing is overstated (listed as ~70 Euro, but 50 Euro will get you a three course dinner and drinks). Some tables are very close together (in the larger middle section).

Ideal for a business lunch - fixed menu provides great quality for a decent price. A la carte is way more expensive, so stick with the proposed menu. Great enclosed garden for when the summer kicks in. Not too crowded.

In the middle of the Anwerp harbour, and located in a historic building next to the water. Great patio for when the weather is nice. Formal dining - ideal for business dinner or special occasions. Expensive, but worth the money - make the time to enjoy it. Menu changes with the seasons.

Located between the Cathedral and the Groenplaats in downtown Antwerp. Easy to get to (by foot!) and plenty of seats available. Quick and friendly service. Nothing too fancy - but great to have a quick Italian fix.
