A brasserie restaurant
where the living is easy

Founded in 1997, Le Prétexte is a brasserie restaurant in Saint-Gilles. From humble beginnings, thanks to our growing success, we have managed to expand our menu. Our manager first came to Belgium in 1989 and opened a chip shop in 1991 before embarking on this adventure.

Why choose Le Prétexte

For our chef Nadi Okyay, cooking is a family matter since his father was a butcher. He and all the staff serve food in a establishment with many assets:

  • mostly Belgian cuisine;
  • Mediterranean and Turkish suggestions every day;
  • Dynamic, friendly staff;
  • Warm atmosphere;
  • Tables outside in the summer;
  • Giant screen for sports events;
  • To eat or to drink;
  • Regular customers and tourists, some from afar.

How to contact us

You can reach us by email and telephone to ask your questions about our brasserie restaurant. We are also ready to help at the establishment from Monday to Saturday 9.30 am to 12.00 midnight. Le Prétexte is the place to eat at and have drinks in Saint-Gilles, and is easy to reach from all over Brussels.
