10) 52 de Pierre
A wonderful discovery in Woluwé between the Avenue de Tervuren and the Boulevard de la Woluwe. The lush green terrace at 52 de Pierre is intimate and the French cuisine is a crowd pleaser.
9) Chalet Robinson
A classic in Brussels, you must go have a seat on the terrace of the Chalet Robinson, located in the middle of Bois de la Cambre. You will have a perfect view of the lake, the ducks, and the people setting sail in their rowboats…
8) Cité du Dragon
Shoots of water cross eachother and water lilies gracefully float in the unique aquatic garden at Cité du Dragon in Brussels. A couple of doors down with more stream-lined décor and a dark blue swimming pool, the Villa Natka is the most trendy of alternatives.
In the heart of the European neighborhood, the Brighton restaurant in the Hotel Stanhope sets the table under hundred year old magnolia trees that grow in their interior courtyard.
6) Les Rives du Gange
Even if the Ganges doesn’t flow all the way to Place Weiner, the Leybeek banks and the Watermael ponds serve as an enchanting setting for Indian cuisine at the Rives du Gange.
5) Chalet du Laerbeek
The Chalet du Laerbeek probably has the biggest restaurant garden in the capital: 33 hectares in the Laerbeek forest.
Travel to the heart of the Indonesian jungle, masterfully decorated by the owner of Garuda – bamboo, statues, and the exotic cabin in the back…
3) The Lodge
The Lodge has a terrace suspended over the ponds. This cozy restaurant surrounded by trees has had great success with its customers in Brussels.
2) Orangerie du Parc d’Egmont
Located between the Sablon and The Hotel in a little green space where only the savviest Brussels inhabitants walk about, the Orangerie du Parc d’Egmont gets second place on our podium. Even though it's right next to the “little belt” highway, you can barely hear the cars. A great choice for a Sunday brunch!
1) Les Foudres
On the edge of water in the shade of trees, tables are set up on the lawn of the garden at the restaurant Les Foudres. Here you feel far away from the commotion of the city. Bucolic decor plus good wine, now that seems like an ideal combination to enjoy the summer nights.
