Introduction

Brussels is one of the gourmet capitals of Europe. It is the third most starred European city by Michelin (18 starred restaurants as of 2012), only superseded by Paris and London. Brussels also ranks fifth in terms of total Gault-Millau toques, behind Paris, London, Vienna and Lyon.

This guide aims at providing an easy overview of exceptional eateries in the EU capital. For more in-depth information on each establishment just follow the links to the official websites.

Michelin Red Guide awards from 1 to 3 stars to the most outstanding restaurants, solely based on the cooking and wine list. Stars in brackets means they have recently been lost. Many restaurants are recommended by the guide without being awarded any star. These are simply indicated here by a 'yes' in this column. Michelin has a separate rating for the atmosphere, decor, service and overall charm of a place, indicated by forks and spoons. These are not listed here.

The Gault & Millau Guide gives ratings from 1/20 to 19.5/20. Recommended restaurants are those with a rating of 12/20 or above.

Besides the Michelin and Gault & Millau ratings, we also listed the affiliation to the Maîtres-Cuisiniers de Belgique (Master-Chefs of Belgium) and to Euro-Toques, an association promoting healthy and quality cooking, favouring seasonal products from local producers, balanced meals and culinary traditions.


The right column denotes our own rating, attributing half of the points to the cuisine and the other half to the atmosphere and setting.
