Not bad

After reading the reviews didn't know if I wanted to eat there. We did and the food was good, I had the spaghetti bolognase and my friend had the beef stew. Both were around 10 euro and we both enjoyed the food. The beer selection is good, and the prices half that at the Renaissance were I was... read more

We ended up there just because the fat boys next door was full. Food was nothing better than eatable. Service just terrible. Coming in a 7 people group, we paid all together, as they specify in the menu "no split bills". Anyhow we wanted copies of the bill, as some of my friends were in a business trip and had... More

The beer factory has a large selection of both draught and bottled beers. I only had a burger though, which tasted good. This is an ok alternative in place du Luxembourg.

Rather pub than eatery. The burger was very simple, looked like fast food. Beer selection however was fine, had a good couple of them. Service was very quick, appreciated.

The beer was fine, and there was a decent selection, but the food left something to be desired. As it was a beer place, I thought I'd try the Carbonnade, a beer beef stew. It was ok, a bit sweet for my taste, but not something I'd go out of my way for. Fries were not great either; seemed like... More

I could not avoid anyplace called "The Beer Factory", but I should have. I had a few beers, no food, but the ladies next to me said their food was weak. I am thinking how can you screw up beer...but basically they did through horrible, snotty service. I had to leaver early because of the heat. They have radiators all... More

I went for lunch here today for the first time and had to wait 20 minutes for a table to be free. This suggested that the food must be halfway decent. It is located behind the European Parliament in an area with lots of lobbyists, etc. Also, the atmosphere is more like that of a UK pub (in a good... More

The selection of eateries in this area was very small on Friday evening so it came down to Hobson's Choice. The service was fine, the menu limited and the food acceptable. Good selection of beers. Went back Monday lunch time, service was, again, fine, but being lunchtime and opposite the European Paliament the place was very busy. Food was acceptable... More
