This Golden Wheel is a great, quite large brasserie just off Grand Place, serving exquisite traditional Belgian-French cuisine. Tourists do not really abound here and the real regulars have a small brass name tag attached to their regular chair or bench. Nice art-deco interior, great atmosphere, reasonable prices for this neigbourhood. As a local restaurant critic suggested: to feel accepted here, just greet everyone on entering. Some regulars are bound to reciprocate your greeting, staff is bound to treat you respectfully.
Great decor, good atmosphere but service was brusque and indifferent. Took order in English and seemed not to understand their English menu and wrong main courses were brought. We decided to eat what was given to us anyway and when we indicated his mistake in a constructive way, the waiter shrugged and refused to acknowledge the misunderstanding. He missed the point - we left no tip.
When the bill came, my wife went to hand it over with our credit card to the waiter. He just snatched them out of her hand as he wlaked past. Very rude.
The other staff seemed fine and other, mainly local, clientele, were clearly enjoying their dining experiences. Actually our French is quite good and there was no need for them to provide an English menu in the first place.

close to the Zavel; the interior is authentic art nouveau. The inside is full of mirrors and stained glass. ...
