It all began in 1926 when Georges Cuvelier, a brave inhabitant of the southern Belgian Borinage region escaped the coal mines to open a small restaurant in Brussels. A regular customer told him each visit : "Georges, in your restaurant we eat like at home." It did not take long for him to come up with the name "Comme chez Soi".

The name evokes cooking just like "at home", but unless you have a personel chef crafting the likes of North Sea lobster salad with black truffles and potatoes, sole fillets with Riesling and shrimp mousseline or perhaps spicy lacquered pigeon breast with wild rice, it's nothing of the sort.

Having ruled the kitchen of Comme chez Soi for several decades, Pierre Wynants has now put his pots and pans down to give place to his son-in-law, Lionel Rigolet.

Opening times : Tuesday and Wednesday from 19:00 to 21:00, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 12:00 to 13:30 and from 19:00 to 21:00.
