People are talking a lot about Le Cécila in Brussels these days. This intimate and warm restaurant, located very close to the Grand Place has one distinctive feature: it specialises in fish and shellfish and is always looking for new pairings. The cuisine is generous and refined in this pleasant restaurant where the kitchen is run by a talented woman.

Mélanie Englebin's delights

Building on her various experiences in Belgium and other countries, Mélanie Englebin combines bistro spirit with a gastronomic approach, bringing together the best of both worlds. Her dishes are incredibly fine and light. They're always a success, from the seared skipjack tuna to the salmon trout smoked bouillon served with fennel and Camargue red rice.

In praise of taking it slow

You don't go to Le Cécila for a quick meal. Mélanie lets her dishes cook slowly for as long as it takes. You'll ask for seconds. Best of all is that you can taste all of the different flavours and never feel overwhelmed by the food. I often bring my friends to this friendly restaurant which is always sober and discrete. You'll be welcomed with a smile and the pleasure of the palate is assured.

My fashion job takes me around the world throughout the year. I love flea markets and hunting for antiques year round, meeting up with friends at art show openings, going to fashion shows and being first to discover a new restaurant.
My little extra: introducing people to the "arty" and underground side of Brussels!"
