We have decided to spend Christmas holidays in Bruxelles ... We now seem to have difficulty in finding good restaurants open on Christmas Eve. We are staying at Grand Sablon .. Any suggestions?
I think that we have found something for Christmas Day - 25th.. but are also open for suggestions?

Best regards

It's really a matter of personal taste Oct 4, 2015

All (or most?) restaurants offer special fixed price menus for Christmas eve and/or Christmas day. You may have to wait until they start advertising them to get an idea of what's on offer. And of course it depends on what sort of food you enjoy.

Good luck. I'll be happy to help anyway I can. You can contact me any time.

Thank you for your quick reply.
My friend is in Bruxelles this weekend and has made some requests and found that a lot of places were not open Christmas Eve ...
Maybe we are too early so far. We like good French-ish / international food served professionally and in a good atmosphere..but not tourist traps.
Falstaff has been on our minds, but we thought that it might lack the intimacy and cosiness on that evening.
Anyway, thank you - I might well take you up on your offer to help when we get closer and if we get stuckicon_smile.gif
