Where do you find a “Belgian Queen”?
Strolling around in the Brussels city center, you will surely pass by the Muntplein. This square thanks its name to the old coin factory that was located there in the medieval times. As of the 18th century the square got an extra bonus, namely a majestic opera house “De Munt schouwburg”. Just next to this impressive opera house slash theatre is another majestic jewel, the Belga Queen restaurant.

The name of the restaurant, of which you have one alike in the Flemish city Ghent, refers to the style of the interior and cuisine philosophy. First the BelgaQueen restaurant is an ambassador for "Made in Belgium". This means that the cuisine is fully based on Belgian and local products. More precise, everything that is served in the BelgaQueen is of Belgian origin or has a Belgian connection, this includes the wines and beers. The (beer)menu is thus a total Belgian cuisine, but all typical Belgian dishes are reinvented in an up-to-date version. A bit like the interior.

This brings us to the second part: the interior Belgian design by Antoine Pinto. Like “De Munt Schouwburg” the building in which the BelgaQueen is located dates from the 18th century. It is the Brussels designer Antoine Pinto who is responsible for the classy and arty face-lift of this landmark. Pinto transformed the place into an impressive chic restaurant, keeping the beautiful glass and leaden skylight as a centerpiece. Look out for peculiar Belgian art and please do make a restroom stop, even if you don't necessarily need tempus privatum. This is an unique experience and you will find out that Pinto is quite a humoristic guy.

Opening times : Mondays to Fridays from 12:00 to 14:30 and from 19:00 to 24:00, Saturdays from 19:00 to 24:00. Closed on public holidays and on December 24th evening.
