This post is for all you romantics out there (like me), as restaurant “Les Foudres” is really a nice place if you want to have a greatand intimate dinner with your lady (or gentleman). The restaurant used to be an old wine warehouse which was very unique in Belgium at that time, some of the barrels or “foudres” could contain 22.000 liter of wine. The wine is not there anymore, but the barrels still are and are incorporated in the restaurant’s interior. The restaurant is located in the original basement of the wine warehouse and really breathes out romance… And if you get the chance (but that will depend on the weather) you should try to dine in the wonderful garden or orchard , which is actually very big for being in the center of Brussels. As the restaurant theme would be the old wine barrels, they obviously also need to have a great choice of wines, which they have indeed . They have a wide choice of international wines. The menu is a mix of French, Belgian and Italian cuisine and you can taste the chef’s skills and know how as the food was really refined. And what I liked was that when leaving the restaurant I didn’t feel like a stuffed turkey J. We took the “Menu du marché” or market menu, which to my opinion is the best way to discover a restaurant. As dessert I had the ‘Tarte Tatin” man do I love a good “Tarte Tatin”. This restaurant is a really nice price-value restaurant.
Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as me.
