Really small and crowded place. The beer was nice but the service was terrible. We had to ask four times for the check and we didn't get it until we started leaving.

This is one of the oldest pubs in Brussels. The beautiful interior is still the same as in 1877 and it is still owned by the same family. For beer lovers this a must. The Geuze lambiek and Witte lambiek are classics, fresh and delicious beers. Try them with a "cervelas" or a "boterham met platte kaas" and it will... More

Small little place, very difficult to find if you do not know it is there. But definitely a place to go as a beer lover. The selection is not very big, but the Gueuze's they have are sublime. The interior decor is very fitting and you can find yourself escaping from the big city buzz. Great place!

Hidden down small alley way, this bar is worth seeking out. The lambic beer is served in traditional earthenware jugs. Try the mixed beers-lambic and Kriek for example if the lambic is too sour for you! Seems to have a rather open policy on opening times... Sometimes closing if business is slow... But overall worth a trip! 🍻

For a tourist and a beer lover, deffinitely take your time to have some consumation in this bar ! Situated in front of the church next to the grand place of Brussels there is just a little very small and tiny entrance which leads to the front door of this bar. Once you come in you think time stood still... More

I had been there before, and in my mind, it was quite nice. What a deception when we arrived : the barmen barely looked at us, didn't greet us. We ordered, and he almost threw the degustation plate in our face. It's a shame because the location in itself is perfect, the prices are fair and the beer is good.... More

Like many other reviewers we found the staff to be rude. A very strange atmosphere throughout the place. The lambic is well known to be excellent and well kept. And it was. But the waiter-bar man was not helpful in our decisions. Rather impatient. He was simply not friendly. Had to go up to the bar to pay and interrupted... More

So much great beer, and so little time! I ordered their Gueze and loved it - very sour but that's my style. My husband tried a lambic and it was also spectacular - the right blend of sweet and sour. Add on top that they serve everything in the old style ceramic pitchers and I was hooked. I wish we... More

The palette of four different lambic beers is really nice. Unfortunately the waiter is quite rude if unsatisfied with the tip.
