't Kelderke Review

Head down into this 17th-century vaulted cellar restaurant (watch out for the low door frame) for traditional Belgian cuisine served at plain wooden tables. Mussels are the house specialty, but the stoemp et saucisses (mashed potatoes and sausages) are equally tasty. It's a popular place with locals, as it's open from noon to 2 am. There are no reservations, so turn up early to be sure to snag a table.

    Excellent Belgian restaurant right on Grand Place

    We ate downstairs (though if full the cafe upstairs has the same kitchen/mendu) in a warm, brick-lined room with an open kitchen in the back staffed by chubby, happy Belgian cooks eager to make sure there was no shortage of wine in the delicious sauces. They offer stereotypical Belgian fare, and the mussels with white wine sauce didn't disappoint. Also, as a Dutchman who loves fries I must say the accompanying fries were incredible. Service can seem cold to the non-Belgian, but they're just as efficient as any other Belgian restaurant. A great place to go especially if you only have a limited time in Brussels and want the true Belgian experience. I thoroughly disagree with that bad review that was placed here on Fodors.

    Not Nice

    The rear of the restaurant smelt very unpleasantly of the dirty toilets which no doubt perfumed the uncovered chocolate cake that was sitting outside the door. Service abrupt and food nothing special. Try somewhere else.
