Already four years have passed since the very first Cevicheria venue opened in Paris, but it’s been just a few hours since their latest restaurant opened in Brussels. During this first week, Laura and Fiona, the two founders of the four La Cevicheria restaurants all together, will greet you in person with the rest of their team. On the menu, it’s a no brainer : you’ve come here for Ceviche.

Located on the corner of place du Béguinage, with its bistro chairs, leather benches and green metro tiles, La Guinguette en Ville cleverly plays with the codes of the typical Belgian bistro. The first thing we notice as we walk by is the big outdoor terrace, where we’ll come enjoy a glass of house white on the high tables, along with a homemade shrimp croquette (10€).

In an area where gems are still hard to find, the opening of Entre Nous can only mean great news. A few blocks away from Midi station and the very cool Mammouth, Sara opened a little restaurant where guests meet around a big shared table, perfect for a work lunch or for a meal before catching a train.
