Lovely bar and beer. Really loved the fact that it still has the original 1920s decor. Waiter was really nice, even though I had a language brain burp when trying to order in French. Food looked nice and we had a massive plate of cheese with our beer. Enjoyed it here and would visit again if in Brussels.

I realize that my review is actually 11 years old, but I didn't have a Trip Advisor account back then (and only now thought about it after having yet another disappointing beer elsewhere). So, 11 years ago, they had a cherry beer, and it was amazing, almost like wine. (I like wine.) When I got back to the States, a... More

This restaurant is definitely our favorite in Brussels for a nice brunch. The restaurant opens at noon and it has a very good design from the Golden Era. You can have a great omlette in the morning with butter and bread (the slice of bread is the size of a half big plate), good coffee and, like it is usual... More

Nice beer, pleasant but few seats and tables outside, inside long thin room. It seems there is a good selection and they have featured beers.

A brilliant bar this one. Nice old ambiance and a really pleasant service. We had some of the most amazing beer here including their Cherry and Peach Kriek, which were totally mind-blowing! They also serve some really good snacks including Tongue of Pig, which we found to be quite good. Keep this place on your have-to-visit list!
