So great to meet again

14th March 2020 – 7th June 2020, 85 days of lockdown.

Around us, a lot of comforting solidarity, courageous and selfless endeavours, but still dark days. After a moment of disbelief, who hasn’t had some negative thoughts? Anguish was not far away; we felt isolated, maybe sadness and even boredom. Who at the beginning of this year who have imagined that we would lose the liberty of hugging, kissing, seeing our loved ones, our friends, having a party? All this because a nasty virus which is still hanging around.

Finally, some light at the end of the tunnel appeared. We were allowed to meet again, first by a group of four, then ten. We can go back to the restaurant and patronise the pubs and cafés. These places are conducive to the social ties that we missed so much.

Today, we are delighted to welcome you again. We chose this profession of restaurateurs for its merriment, for the pleasure of making people happy, to share our passion and joie de vivre. We missed you.

In practice, we had to suspend the valet parking in Uccle. Sanitary rules required to move the tables away from each other. Menus are printed on placemats. We placed distributors of disinfectant gel in strategic places and, we provided all our employees of mandatory masks (but who hides their smile). Last but not least, the wine cellar is almost full, our grillers have sharpened their knives, the steaks are waiting for you.

See you soon!

TripAdvisor’s excellence award for both restaurants

Year after year, TripAdvisor awards both Meet Meat Uccle and Meet Meat Schuman (EU District) a certificate of excellence. 2019 was no exception.

TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel site. To quote them “Since 2011, the Certificate of Excellence honours hospitality businesses that deliver consistently great service across the world. … To qualify a business must: – Maintain an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least four out of five – Have a minimum number of reviews – Have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least twelve months. … To determine Certificate of Excellence recipients, we use a variety of user-generated content. We use an algorithm that primarily takes into account the quality, quantity, and recency of user reviews, as well as the business’ tenure on the site.”

In 2013, TripAdvisor rewarded Meet Meat Schuman for the first time, and since then, every year, we were recognised by this award. We started Meet Meat Uccle in 2015, and it got the first reward in 2017.
We are delighted by this recognition, and we would like to thank all our guests that took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor.
Every day, we strive to give you our customer, the best experience by providing good food, good wine and excellent service. Just looking at the smile of the people when they leave our restaurants, we think that overall we have achieved this goal. We are also comforted in that belief by the numerous compliments we get from our guests. We always appreciate feedback, and it helps us to progress.

Des rhums de la Barbade, de la Martinique, du Pérou...

A nice way to conclude a meal…


It’s traditional to end a meal with a digestif. Even if serious scientific studies have shown that liqueurs and spirits don’t improve the way to digest a meal, there is no reason why one shouldn’t enjoy a nice glass of some sort of brandy and enjoy a good time.

We at Meet Meat, have chosen to look at special rums. We have made some great discoveries and we will be happy to share them with you.  For example, we have tasted an extra old rum from Martinique, a 12-year-old rum from the Barbados, one from Guatemala and one from Peru.

As one would expect, we recommend moderation and that you drink sensibly… only the best. Be prudent if you must drive home and in doubt ask someone else to take the wheel.
