Explanation of the Belgian Foodie Rating System for Reviews

General Comments about My Ratings
 
Rating Scale
In all my reviews, I give ratings on various elements on a 1-to-5 scale.   One is the lowest rating and five is the highest.  Below is a short description for each number of stars:

Brussels Food Friends Event Number 5

What is Brussels Food Friends?
Brussels Food Friends, or BxlFF to friends, is a platform connecting food bloggers in Belgium from all over the world, including some native to Belgium. While food unites these bloggers, they each have their own focus, style and audience.

Events organized by Brussels Food Friends are a wonderful opportunity to share experiences, learn new tips and make new friends in our blogger community.
