Bon Bon

With such an adorable name like Bon Bon, you'd easily think this was a chocolate shop in Brussels, wouldn't you? But in fact, it's one of the finest Michelin-starred restaurants in the Belgian capital. Chef-owner Christophe Hardiquest opened this hotspot back in 2001 and it has remained a popular place to eat decades later. And it's all because of his high-quality gourmet dishes that championed fresh local produce. You can practically taste the garden where the vegetables and fruits came from!

Bozar Restaurant

Located on the Centre for Fine Arts, the popular multi-purpose cultural venue on Rue Baron Horta, Bozar Restaurant is a one-time Michelin-starred restaurant worth checking out. Head chef Karen Torosyan takes the reigns here, reinterpreting traditional Belgian and European cuisines to fit today's discriminating standards. She offers three-course, four-course, and six-course menus, each including seasonal dishes that will take your breath away. Even though Bozar Restaurant is nestled in a popular building, it has earned its Michelin star and popularity all on its own.

Comme chez Soi

Founded in 1926, Comme chez Soi is one of the oldest restaurants in Brussels. However, it wasn't until chef Pierre Wynants took over the kitchen from 1979 to 2006 did the place rise to fame, not to mention earn two Michelin stars. And in 2006, Pierre's son-in-law Lionel Rigolet inherited his position and continues to make Comme chez Soi the important and historic culinary institution that it is. His extraordinary menu of traditional Belgian and French dishes continues to delight locals and tourists alike!

Le Chalet de la Forêt

Nestled inside a gorgeous chalet near the Sonian Forest, Le Chalet de la Forêt is a two-time Michelin-starred restaurant that's a good distance away from the busier and more bustling districts of Brussels. The peace and tranquility alone provide the perfect ambiance for customers to really enjoy and indulge in the haute cuisine they offer. Think Breton lobster from our Homarium with red sorrel leaves that's big enough to share between two people—the perfect romantic date dish! Or Fillet of beef and foie gras à La Royale, a scrumptious main course worth savoring every bite. What's not to love?

And that's on top of having earned two Michelin stars too! Located on Rue Ropsy-Chaudron in the Anderlecht municipality, Chef David Martin treats his customers with scrumptious Japanese cuisine with his own delectable Western twist. Not even the flock of origami birds hung all around the restaurant will distract you when you enjoy your meal!

Le Pigeon Noir

Housed in a classic-style cottage on Rue Geleytsbeek, Le Pigeon Noir offers terroir cuisine that's unfussy yet still so delicious. Since it looks more like an old-school pub than a standard Michelin-starred restaurant in Brussels, you can easily overlook it when you pass by here. However, you'd do well to check out the hotspot and take a bite of their delectable Belgian and European dishes. When paired with either beer or wine, you'll instantly understand how Le Pigeon Noir earned its one Michelin star!

La Truffe Noire

There's just something about truffled dishes that tastes and feels so luxurious. It's the deeper flavor, the richer texture, the more severe aftertaste, and the like. And by focusing on this culinary style, it's no wonder La Truffe Noire earned a Michelin star! From different kinds of pastato truffle ice cream for dessert, the way this place has relied on truffles is truly interesting and undeniably irresistible. You'll have to prepare your taste buds well if you want to dine here!

La Villa in the Sky

True to its name, eating at La Villa in the Sky will have you feeling like you're on top of the world, both literally and figuratively.

Senzanome

It's no secret that relying on Italian cuisine is often a surefire way of earning a Michelin star. Senzanome, the one-time Michelin-starred restaurant Place du Petit Sablon in Brussels knows this. But of course, they take it a step further. Instead of just trotting out the usually Italian dinner table staples that practically anyone gets anywhere else in the world, this first-class hotspot focused its attention on Sicilian cuisine. Think Bocconcini balls that will tantalize your taste buds, well-cooked Filetto di daino that will fill your tummy, and some delicious dolce for dessert. Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?
