Ixelles : Michelin's recommendations
Lying mainly to the east of avenue Louise and beyond the ring road, this suburb of Brussels is commonly known simply as XL. It has much to offer, with a variety of quarters that differ completely from each other (Matongé is primarily African with attractive water features, Louise is well-to-do, Flagey is cultured, St-Boniface is lively, while Bois de la Cambre is tranquil).
