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

Food below par. We had the daily special which was a cheeseburger and fries. It was terrible. The worst bun, cheese and burger I tasted. The guy serving seemed OK but nothing that I can boast about. Beer was Good

Food was cold and there was a hair in my burger. We sent it back and they gave us back even colder burgers. Might as well came from their fridge, if they have one.

This is a terrible place to come. Rude service, awful food. I was stupid enough to order a salad which was obviously thrown out of packet onto the plate. The staff are very rude and they just don't seem to give a damn. There are plenty of other half decent places to eat on Place Luxembourg - so my advice... More

We were staying in the area, saw the Beer factory and thought it looked good, so we tried it. After being seated for a while, we were given English menus. The selection is comprehensive and the usual bar style food (burgers, ribs, stews, steaks). After a wait, we ordered ribs and beef in beer stew and 2 local beers. Food... More

We were looking for a place for a light meal near out hotel. It was not as great as we thought it would be. I ordered chili and it turned out to be a small pot of an appetizer portion--OK, but very small. We also ordered wine, which was good and empanadas which were tasteless as well as some olives....

A very good selection of local beers, supplemented with the usual imports those those that don't know how good Belgian beer is. Average food, but severely let down by poor service. They really need extra staff when it gets busy.

Tried the plat du jour and a cherry beer. It is opposite the parlementarium. Good place for a simple lunch before or after paying a visit.
