Basic food, rather for beers

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

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
