Skievelat happens to be one of my favourite lunch spots in Brussels. It has all the qualities I am looking for in a restaurant for a relaxed night out with friends: good food, relaxed, spacious and good value for money.
There are actually two Skievelat branches, one in Laeken and one just off the Grand Sablon. My favourite one is the latter just because I can always make a detour and pass by the beautiful Petit Sablon or pay a visit to the nearby antique market at in the Marolles. The interior has an almost bare, industrial feel which is cozy and welcoming at the same time – dim lighting, wooden tables and a steel staircase connecting the two levels.
Despite being located in a high-end neighbourhood, Skievelat is a great choice for those on a budget. The extensive menu comprises all the typically Belgian dishes (mussels and fries, meatballs in tomato sauce and stoemp, to name a few) plus some classic options, including its signature burgers. This place is all about good food in big portions, so make sure you are hungry when you arrive! And as the cocktail list suggests, Skievelat is a pretty good spot for a drink or two – take note: their mojito is dangerously good!
