“Special Place!! My family!!”
Review of Le Petit Philou

Le Petit Philou
Ranked #1,568 of 4,073 Restaurants in Brussels
Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 October 2017

The staff, the locals and tourist made me feel at home!! I am grateful that it was across the street from my hotel, especially when I stay until closing time and get kicked out! LOL

Service
Lou and Hind are the best! My beer or Cava glass was never empty. These young ladies were cordial, warm, introduced me to locals and their friends. They treated my like family. They even indulged me by speaking in English and translating in French. I love them!

Food
Well, there really isn't. I wish they had something, but it is a rather small place.

Alcoholic Beverages
They serve a lot of beer and I drank a lot. They also serve wine and CAVA, as well as other alcoholic beverages. I had a shot of gin that I wasn't familiar with and it was pretty good. The prices are very reasonable. I had to say cheap because I don't want them to raise the prices.

Location
It is located in walking distance to Brussels Centre Station and Grand Place.

Clientele
There are a lot of locals that hangout here throughout the day. They welcomed me by name and kissed me on my checks. A few tourist stopped in when they saw how much fun we were having dancing, laughing and drinking. A few of the locals also invited me and two others to a local after hour place when we closed down Le Petit Philou! Another local invited me to a gallery where his photographs were exhibited. I went with one of the bartenders and then we had drinks at an outdoor café and then a great dinner at an outdoor restaurant.

I will definitely return when I'm in Brussels and recommend highly to others and my clients.

Miss you guys!!

On my first day I went to this little local bar with the intention to relax after a long trip. What I got from this place was much more!

This is not a stereotypical tourist location and thats what made it so special! Go there and enjoy the authentic Belgium life!

The second day of my trip I needed to return there! So I did. The beer is amazing and the cured sausage is a food for hero's!

The owner, barmaids and locals really made this a place I want to visit over and over again!
