Are you ready for some great food and atmosphere, follow our tips by locals!
Spot 1: Italian food!
In the mood for Italian food? Try out the Sale, Pepe & Rosmarino restaurant! 100 meters away from our hotel (from Rue Berckmans, turn left and walk on for 2 minutes) you will find this amazing Italian restaurant. The menu is quite small but be sure that every dish is fresh and prepared with love. They also have some great Italian wines.
Our tip: go for handmade pasta and freshly made Zabaione.

Are you craving a quality burger? Try out the Cool Bun restaurant! Offering tasty and quality burgers, the meal here will bring you a moment of joy. To go there, when leaving the hotel go left onto Berckmans street. Turn towards your right, walk for a few meters and cross the road when you see the restaurant. The homemade Burger is, of course, flame grilled organic burger!
Our tip: Apple jack burger. Onglet, lettuce, oven dried tomatoes, Cheddar, onion rings, BBQ sauce. Not the typical burger you’ll find in any burger place.

You are looking for more traditional Belgian food? Follow us to a part of Berckmans street where you will find a local treasure.
While leaving the hotel walk to the Berckmans street, go right then straight to the large crossroad with Chaussée Charleroi. Cross the road to stay on the Berckmans Street and after a few meters you will find the restaurant Le Malte. This Belgian restaurant offers a wide selection of European/Belgian meals built to please anyone. This restaurant has accessible prices and offers great quality; it also has lunch specials. A great spot to take a break during your day.
Our tip: try out the meals made “Malte” way, they are original and great!

Looking for French cuisine? Try out Flâneries Gourmandes then. It is a little further down the street then Le Malte, and its French modern cuisine is delightful. Even though the menu is slightly higher priced, the dishes are truly delicious and tasteful! Its short menu changes regularly, so whenever you are in Brussels you can re-visit this restaurant over and over again, and still be pleasantly surprised by their meals!
Our tip: let yourself be surprised by the creativity of the chef using season products in its menus!
Address: Rue berckmans 2, Ixelles, Brussels.

You enjoy eating outside but are slightly tired of the usual, traditional European cuisine? Inada is the perfect place for you! This restaurant managed very successfully to create a fusion of Japanese cuisine and French gastronomy! Any gourmet or food lover has to try this; it would even be worth the trip to Brussels alone. Prices may again be slightly higher, the quality of the cuisine and products there is off the hook. To get there go to your right while leaving the Hotel and walk straight to the crossroads. Immediately on your right, on this crossroad, you will find Inada. You’re in for a treat, guaranteed!
Our tip: try out the eel filet caramelized Japanese style!
Address: 73 rue de la Source, 1060, Saint-Gilles, Brussels.
