Actually not too bad

I was positively surprised at the selection of dishes on offer at reasonable prices. We had chilli con carne, which was served very quickly and accompanied by a couple of pints of wheat beer. Good atmosphere for a chilled evening drink and/or meal

We were recommended this place by colleagues who live and work in Brussels. It does good pub food, plus local specialties like stoemp we were told. We walked in, saw a guy eating stoemp at that was it! Great food at a great price, good beers (though we were working, sadly) and friendly staff. I would happily go there again,... More

A typical beer bar with some nice food. Not something exceptional nor bad either. Just fine if you want to have something to eat or drink. I took a vegetable burger as I don't eat burgers with meat and it was nice. I didn't have any beer but my company did, they said it was fine. If only the waitress... More

Between the clearly irritated waiter who did not want to wait on us and the barely edible food, I wish we'd chosen more wisely. The only reason it didn't get a one circle rating is that my wife enjoyed the beef stew.

Good location, nice interior, terrible service and bad food. Being a frequent visitor on Place Luxembourg, I have based this assessment on multiple visits. However one event I would like to mention specifically: I was with friends and it took us 25 min to place an order for drinks and snacks. The wine I got served was rather clowdy and... More

Nice place to get one of the many Belgian beers. The place is named for its beer, but try the food as well! Please note it is closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

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 staying. Nice... More
