Best for Families - Expert review of Houtsiplou

Fun family bistro with cartoons painted on the walls.

This laidback townhouse bistro is ideal for families: it serves simple tasty dishes at rustic wooden tables and the walls and cupboard doors are covered with doodles.

Food and drink: 

They serve a mixture of open sandwiches (tartines), salads, burgers and pastas, and there’s a separate children’s menu.

Ambience: 

An informal home-from-home atmosphere thanks to the kitsch flower-power wallpaper, aging piano, books and other knick-knacks scattered along the windowsills.

Service: 

Servers are relaxed and friendly.

Location: 

Across the square from Comme Chez Soi, about a five-minute walk from Brussels-Midi train station. Anneessens is the nearest metro station.

Price advice: 

Starters hover around the 8 euros mark and mains around 13 euros. Kid’s meals cost about 6 euros.

Tables to book: 

Tables upstairs have nice views over Place Rouppe.
