10 years of living in Brussels, and there are still restaurants to be discovered. Last Friday we decided it is time for something new, it is time to escape the restaurant ‘routine’. So we looked for a cozy place, with decently priced cuisine and came across the L’Arrosoir. A new place in the center of Brussels which I am sure I must have passed by at least a 100 times (literally so!).
Arrosoir in French means watering-can. A name which soon made a lot more sense, as the restaurant resembles a greenhouse, and the ceiling is covered with watering-cans. An interesting décor, which gives the place a special touch.
The food tends to be fusion cuisine, and there is a very nice wine list (mainly French wines). Skipping the entrées, I had steaklet of duck with mango chutney and without a doubt it was one of the most delicious meals I ever had. Maybe the atmosphere, or the nice red wine are to ‘blame’ but the meal was absolutely incredible. Definitely something I will have again and will recommend further.
Desserts were a hit and miss (but then again taste is very personal): at first I ordered a Colonel, which is lime sorbet with vodka, however it was a little too strong for me. So I decided to have a cheese platter, which fulfilled all my expectations and beyond.
A small place, but as it seems very well known, reservations in advance are advisable. And don’t forget to look up to admire the arrosoires.
