.. its worth a single visit. Admittedly, I've been there more than once - with different people - as it doesn't seem to have changed since the turn of the century. Service does vary at times and it is pricey. Try the gueuze.

The waiteress keeps the strangers in even if I have informed her;She said,"it is ok". So my friend's stuff got stolen,I thought she is quite familiar with that situation. The obese and senior waitress.

This bar was found by lookig on trip advisor for suggestions and we were pleased with what we found both times we visited. We only went for drinks but the service was very good, the selection of beers excellent and the atmosphere very enjoyable, clearly a popular place with locals and tourists alike.

Agree with most of the reviews, a must bar to visit. A great range of beers but 12 Euros for a large beer is a bit steep, Food is basic but enjoyable, can recommend the Brussels pate; you get a huge slice of bread and a large portion of pate. The staff are strange, slow to take the orders at... More

I felt really terrible because my mobile phone got stolen by a thief looking girl, but the restaurant didn't step up. Even pretended they don't speak English(they did speak fluent English while explaining the menu for me.), said they didn't see anyone like I described. We called the staff to do something for that thief girl's annoying me, they all... More

Charming brasserie centrally located between the Cathedral and the Royal gallery. Beers are interesting and reasonably priced. Snacks are served - I had the cheese platter which was very generous but poor quality (and consisting of many cubes of the same cheese).

Plenty of choice of beers...pleasant staff...nice environment...what more could you want? Little bit pricey, but so are the other specialist pubs in downtown Brussels

The beer was excellent (several tasted!!!). I liked the fact that it hasn't changed and was a retreat from the modern glass and stainless steels (and cold!!) bars that seem to be the fashion. A must go-to if you are in Brussels.

You feel like you time travelled once you entered. And having a glass or two of their Cherry beer becomes a real treat when you discover the history of why the place was named so. Nice place to relax after a long day of walking and sightseeing.

Very typical Brussels bar with great history and reputation. Central location, always busy with great range of beer. Knowledgable staff, efficient service and if the suns shining a good place to sit outside and watch Brussels walk by. Well worth a visit.
