About The Poet

Located in the heart of the European quarter, The Poet is the signature restaurant of the Renaissance Brussels Hotel and is ranked as one of the Top 10 restaurants in Brussels on TripAdvisor.

At The Poet, we celebrate the urban spirit of our vibrant neighborhood. Our motto, sharing food and ideas, is at the core of our Chef's local and seasonal cuisine, that is both classic and contemporary with a twist. At lunchtime, it is the ideal place for coworkers to gather around a healthy, tasty and affordable menu with fast service. In the evening, discover our Chef's specials inspired by Belgian cuisine and built around seasonal ingredients. 

Share dishes and good times with our signature cocktails created by our experienced mixologist. He will adapt to your desires and let his imagination speak to create unique cocktails tailored to your preferences. The restaurant even has its own eponymous beer, brewed steps away from Brussels!

Our design spaces are there for you to savor, explore and socialize in the heart of Europe.

A cultural vibrant hub for anyone with a passion for culture, drinks and food!
