eat! BRUSSELS – The Brussels Restaurant festival


From just €6, here’s your opportunity to taste meals (in smaller portion form) by top chefs from thirty restaurants in Brussels and partner regions. This great food share takes place in the Bois de la Cambre – for three days join other gourmands beneath the trees and get the benefit of the knowledge of experts keen to divulge their secrets.

Many visitors to the city remark upon its rich variety when it comes to the victuals, and with a menu that touches every corner of the globe, offering restaurants and products from Europe, Africa, the Far East and France, this event bring that into clear focus under one roof.

30,000 are expected to head for the Bois de la Cambre, parts of which have recently been renovated as part of a continuing development plan. If you don’t know this leafy spot, then makes this your first visit – stroll on the paths or across grassy lawns around the ponds and you’ll forget you’re only a few steps from avenue Louise.

All the participating restaurants work with recyclable materials: the cutlery and plates are fully biodegradable and the glasses are made from reusable materials. If you’re coming with kids then seek out KATAKRAK, a company that make games made from recycled objects.

In keeping with its international outlook, eat! BRUSSELS has teamed up with some near neighbours and some far-flung partners, such as Sichuan, Katanga Province, Democratic Republic of Congo, Budapest, Rabat-Salé-Zemmour-Zaer in Morocco, Beijing, Quebec, Sofia and Bratislava.
