Dining Brussels: Terza Luna and Charlu


In our dining Brussels pages we offer two more excellent choices for a fine meal.

Terza Luna
A stone’s throw from place Dumont in Stockel, Terza Luna serves gourmet Italian cuisine with an emphasis on fresh produce and authentic Italian flavours. The third restaurant launched by Antonio Mastrogiovanni, in the wake of the success of I Latini on place Sainte Catherine and Le Médicis, at the same address, Terza Luna encapsulates thirty years of culinary experience in a stylish and elegant yet simple and friendly atmosphere. A cellar that reflects the oenological relations nurtured over the years with some of the great Italian wineries ensures that your meal is paired with the perfect wine.

United by their native Salerno, Antonio Mastrogiovanni has teamed up with Daniel Adinolfi and Giovanni Casaburi. Together, they exude a spirit and atmosphere like back home and import products from Cilento, located south of Salerno, including wine and olive oil. There is a magnificent open kitchen. On sunny days, a terrace can accommodate more than 40 seats. Closed Saturday noon and Sunday evening.

Come and enjoy gourmet bistro Charlu, in which the best French specialties are revisited with flair and talent. While keeping the essentials of the beautiful decor of the old bistro, Charlu’s new operators decided to radically change the restaurant’s gastronomic orientation. The new team at Charlu is far from being composed of unknown ‘bistronomic’ cuisine lovers.

Behind the project, we find Patrick Triest, who has carved out a good reputation in Uccle. Always seduced by Charlu, he did not hesitate to renovate and innovate. Many wonders are available over the months and seasons, a reflection of the best of French cuisine. From Wednesday to Friday, there is an unbeatable lunch at €18, with the dish of the day at €13.50 but also a 3-course menu at €35 and 5 courses for €52.  So, for a gourmet and relaxed getaway, here is an address that will become a must for all lovers of beautiful gourmet tables!
