Random tips on things to do and places to go in Brussels and beyond

Porte de Namur / Saint Boniface restaurants


Given the recent search requests for restaurants in the Porte de Namur area, here is my pick of restaurants in Saint Boniface (just behind Porte de Namur)

1. Le 2eme Element (Thai) – considered by many to be one of the best Thai restaurants in the city, Le Deuxieme Element does not disappoint, although service sometimes is not that friednly and waits can be long due to its popularity.

2. Mano a mano (Italian) – Its outdoor seating is definitely a plus in the summer for this friendly Italian restaurant that is popular for its thin crust pizzas and pastas.

3. Belgo Belge (Belgian) – read more in the Belgian restaurants post

4. L’ultime atome (Belgian brasserie) – Popular brasserie for lunch, dinner or just a coffee or drink at any time of the day, this brasserie’s terrace is always bustling with expats. The menu choices are wide and food is fine, but it does not blow you away.

Of course, you can always go to the other side of Porte de Namur and check out Point Bar. Any additional suggestions are welcome!

  3. St Bonaface has been my favorite restaurant in all of Europe since I was brought there by a friend in 2000. I go everytime I’m in town and savor each wonderful bit. Closed on the weekends which is a complete bummer but alas, it’s worth the trip…..also Michelin rated
