About Les Caves d'Alex

The minute you step inside this restaurant, you know wine will be the main focus. It is located in the former cellars of “Mouchart”, an old Belgian négociant, and you sit right next to the former “foudres” which were used back in the days when Belgians used to import their wines in bulk and bottle them themselves. The legend goes that one of the “foudres” is still full of a Bordeaux from the beginning of the 80’s.

The food is very classical French, delicious and comforting with typical dishes such as game when in season, sweetbreads, and quenelles on the menu. But the place is most well known for being one of the best places to go for a beautiful piece of meat, always from a great breed, and cooked to perfection. Choose your cut, its weight, its thickness and sit back and enjoy perusing the wine list. To me, this is the best place in Brussels when I feel carnivorous!

Hugues is an experienced sommelier, and has spent years creating a wine list which matches the atmosphere of the venue and of the plates. You will find excellent bottles of fine producers throughout the list, often with vintages going back a couple of years, which will help to maximize your enjoyment of such a place!
