Looking for great laid back atmosphere, scenic location and good food. Try one of the Excellent Restaurants on the budget. Number one on our list has a great view, and a very big patio - since your sitting on the Grote Markt!
If it's too crowded try the second floor for an even better view.
When it comes to steak - there is a lot to choose from – read our Steak Guide if you don't want to be served raw egg on a hill of raw ground beef. Places that specialize only in steak - Steakhouses - are very rare.
Despite that ‘Beefsteak frit’ is very popular – the national dish in Belgium - it is difficult to a find typical American Steak house. But there is steak in Belgium – We know. Friday is steak night at our house. Usually we make it at home but often we head out on the town in search of the perfect steak - and we keep adding to our ‘worth mentioning’ steak list.
Although you can find steak everywhere - If you want choice and really good steak try one of the exceptional Steakhouses on our list.
