Banksy’s Bites – Le Relais St-Job
Le Relais St-Job, 1 Place Saint-Job, Uccle, Brussels
There’s something to satisfy all tastes here. For the traditionalists, mouth-watering old favourites such as rognon de veau (a house speciality), solettes, jambonneau braise and ris de veau grille.
Look out also for the shrimp croquettes, known as the best in Brussels (if not the country!)
But the terrific a la carte is also packed with lots of other equally fine offerings, including seafood products such as oysters and lobster, plucked from the tank in the centre of the restaurant.
A great choice of starters include St Jacques (shelled on site to ensure freshness), tartine de thon and poached egg with smoked salmon.
Some of these, and other items such as pate and soups, are also available from the well-stocked traiteur (takeaway) service (open 10am-9pm) which adjoins the restaurant and also sells a fine range of wines.
You can avail yourself of this very fine food (with friendly service to match) just about any time of the year because the restaurant is open non-stop from noon to midnight, 7/7.
There’s also a suggestions card (lunchtime) plus a good value, two-course €15.90 lunch menu.
Ideally located on a popular, and attractive, main square, Le Relais attracts customers from all over Brussels who keep returning for the consistently excellent value-for-money dishes, many which draw on the best of Belgian cuisine.
