We came to Belgium for the beer and this place does not disappoint. We sat outside enjoying their fantastic Lambic watching the world go by and wished we could have stayed much longer. Go here if you are a beer fan, don't delay!

Always visit while in Brussels for a throw back to the 1930s stile of bar. Staff always friendly and service quick given the number of customers they have to serve. Always check that I know what to expect when I order a Gueuze due to its sour taste. Popular with all types of people from students to couples and groups... More

Because of the reviews on TA. We decided to give this place a visit and we are really glad we did. Really authentic brussels bar and great selection of beers. The staff are helpful in choosing which beers to choose. My advice is to start your brussels beer experience in this bar it was great.

Just out of the more tourist area, this bar has fantastic feel and decor. Good menu and wonderful selection of lambics on tap. A great place to stop for a drink and a bite.

I love this bar in the center of Brussels. It has very authentic products and authentic service. Both are a bit rough (the Geuze sur lie is somewhat sour, a real drink of a century ago), and the personnel is a little rough as well, but that is as it should be in authentic Brussels place. Go there and have... More

An amazing bar, It has a vintage look about it but that is part of the attraction. The beer selection is wonderful and the staff were very friendly. Beer lovers must go there.

The beer is to die for, the location is convenient and the interior is special. Definitely worth dropping by, or staying in. It's a little piece of beer history.

What a fantastic place! We had a day out in Brussels, not totally sure of the best places to go we headed to the tourist information. The man behind the desk seemed to be wishing we were taking him with us. He suggested four bars and this was one of them. We loved it, the first we went to was... More

Absolutely authentic bar with great beers and a fantastic atmosphere. Great mixture of clientele, old, young, locals, visitors, Eurocrats, Eurosceptics and ourselves loving every minute. Not to be missed!
