    Pushy waiter, very average steak, hurried service ... very basic brasserie, not at all the restaurant it used to be

    This restaurant is outstanding. Old school service , food and an intimate atmosphere. Fish is cooked impeccably I had the Turbot which was seasoned to perfection. The wine was just delicious and the spectacular crepe Suzette is hard to beat for desert. This restaurant was and still remains after the revamp. the best in Brussels in my opinion.

    From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were looked after perfectly. The menu was extensive and we really enjoyed our choices, particularly the moules.

    I had chicons gratinées and navettes d'agneau with morrels, both very good and definitely above average. Service was a bit slow however, at least 15 minutes before the beverages (water and beer) arrived. The belle epoque room seems to be noisier than the bistro-brasserie room probably due to larger groups .

    Very good food but quite pricey especially croquette au crevette which were 2 tiny croquette at 17 euros! Also waited extremely long for them....service should be better considering the level of restaurant. Another improvement should be the bread. It tasted like it was from the day before.. not great at all in such a known and great restaurant. I expected more...

    I first went to this restaurant nearly 10 years ago, after a friend from Brussels recommended it to me. I haven't forgotten that meal, and decided to go back during a quick stopover in Brussels recently. The mussels, pasta, fish, and wine list were all exceptional. Service was un-rushed. I'm looking forward to finding another excuse to visit Brussels to go again!

    I can’t believe how utterly atrocious the service was. It was so bad we were afraid to ask for anything. We had to ask for still water 3 times, and it was delivered without glasses to drink it. Additionally- every table around us received their principal dishes before us, and we were seated first. Principal dishes were delivered nearly two hours after receiving entries. We had to ask for bread, never received with butter, every table had it served to them without asking. We wanted to order more items, including additional drinks and deserts, but the thought of dealing with such bad service gave us immense anxiety. Please improve, because at this point I would never go back, nor recommend that anyone else I know visit this establishment.

    Very disappointed, 1 complete hall only 1 persoon who take ordes, bring food/drink. After visite webiste thought it was a historyfull restaurant, should be very nice. Vegetarian food comes with porc, low quanlity cheese corquette, very very long time wait for dessert comes with menu. Won't enter again.

    Really good. Basic mussels is made spectacular by their fresh ingredients and their superb white wine. Not overly salted, evenly balanced. Well done

About the restaurant

En 1958, le restaurant connait le début d’une période faste avec l’Exposition Universelle qui a fait de Bruxelles le centre du monde pendant 6 mois.

Au début des années 1970, Jacques Veulemans, un des fils de Calixte, crée à l’extérieur du vénérable établissement, dans la Petite rue des Bouchers le « Comptoir des Armes », un bar à tapas à la belge.

Il y travaille entre autres avec son épouse, Madame Suzanne et son fils Laurent.

Le tout Bruxelles s’y retrouve pour boire le coup et y déguster les classiques de la maison, en petites portions, tout en faisant la zwanze une bonne partie de la nuit.

Les « Armes de Bruxelles » connaissent alors deux décennies fastes, contribuant à la réputation festive de l’Îlot sacré, destination gastronomique de la capitale.

En 2006, la famille Veulemans revend l’affaire. Le restaurant vit alors quelques années agitées avant d’être repris en 2018 par Rudy Vanlancker, propriétaire de Chez Léon, un proche de la famille Veulemans depuis toujours.

Une sorte de réveil pour cette vieille dame endormie depuis 2006.
