La Madeleine. A taste of Bistronomy
t: +27 (0) 12 361 3667




When in Brussels, don’t hesitate to speak Afrikaans, in some places you will have VIP treatment. There is no direct flight from South Africa to Brussels so I always use Swissair when I fly to Belgium, they are always on time and the connecting flight to Brussels is easy and convenient. I have put together a few of my favourite places to go to in Brussels, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do…

Mort Subite Rue Montagne aux Herbes Potagères,7 – 1000 Bruxelles Tel. +32 (0)2 513 1318

A typical Brussels brasserie with decor that hasn’t changed in 2 centuries, the ideal place to sample some of the best beers in the world. Try Gueuze, Kriek or Faro and very appetizing “tartines”.

Vincent Rue des Dominicains, 8-10 Bruxelles – tel. +32 (0)2 511 2303

My favourite restaurant in Brussels for classical Belgian cooking, décor and ambiance.

Galerie de la Reine not far from the above mentioned places.

Restaurants, bistrots and shopping. A must if you want to shop in style. (Something completely different from Menlyn and Sandton)

La Paix 1892 Rue Ropsy-Chaudron, 49- 1070 Bruxelles Tel. +32 (0) 2 523 0958

My daughter, Anne’s favourite restaurant in Brussels. In an establishment that was formerly a café frequented by butchers, the French chef explores and reinvents bistro cuisine in a typical Brussels ambience. Diners have a view over the kitchens, where the meat is cooked in a wood-fired oven.

HOTEL AMIGO Rue de l’amigo Tel. +32 (0) 2 547 4747
