Le Mess

Avenue Louis Schmidt 1, Brussels, 1040

The name of the upmarket French restaurant, Le Mess, brings to mind a number of military officers socailising affably over food and drink and seems a bit of a misnomer. But then take into account the fact that it is housed in former military barracks, and the owner's reasons for not letting go of the historical element that it's associated with become more obvious. Spread over a number of floors, this restaurant, located in the Louis Schmidt boulevard, manages to bring together different facets of fine dining under one roof. The furniture has been designed by Philippe Starck and is typified by dark woods and chic cream leather. The dining area has a convivial atmosphere, reminiscent of colonial clubs and it seems to be just the place to sit and relax with friends over a well prepared repast.

The salon is more suited for small, intimate groups, while those who prefer to eat al fresco can make use of the terrace where a glass house structure adds beauty and functionality to the scene. They also have a banquet room for large groups, parties or conferences.

At Le Mess expect to find classical French cuisine, prepared with fresh ingredients and cooked in a simple and unfussy manner. Start with the carpaccio of Saint-Jacques with Belgian salad and truffle oil or try the lobster ravioli with vegetables and coconut milk curry. The beef salad on a bed of rocket with crispy bacon is also an interesting way to begin a meal there.

Move on to the mains with a sea bass filet, aubergines with sesame and parmesan crisps or the leg of lamb with fragrant sage, crushed cornes de gatte potatoes and farm butter. The Thai duck a l'orange or the ravioli of ceps and truffles add more dimensions and the wide variety of flavours present in all the courses is well balanced and they complement each other perfectly.

Indulge in the upside down apple tart or the chocolate plate that has three decadent variations or opt for the fresh seasonal fruit with a rich, creamy topping or the saffron scented crème brûlée, if you're in the mood for something light. French wines dominate the carefully chosen list and the friendly and polite service can be very helpful in choosing the best accompaniment for your meal.
