What a total dump. Found our own table, and waited, and waited... despite several staff strolling past us. Eventually had to virtually grab hold of a waiter just to get a menu and have the filthy table wiped. Ordered drinks and waited, and waited...Finally got to order food from limited choices, asked for pork steak and had to point out... More

No welcome. They acknowledged me but let me wait by the door. Staff was busy talking. Second dish was placed on the table when I was having the first dish!!! Ignorant. No one came to ask me the dessert or bill. Terrible service ever!!!

I ordered moussaka and to drink a glass of Orval. Good food and absolutely divine beer. Price is fair but not exactly cheap, but worth a visit.

Tube light, no-nonsense service, great chees assortiment, this is a nice, authentic place (or at least appearing as such). Not your regular tourist trap.

A star exhibit in the agreeably large number of traditional Brussels brasseries that haven't changed much in the last century or so. Delightful 30s-40s interior with wood panelling, nice old tables and chairs (some booth seating) and old flourescent advertising. Although the menu was perhaps a bit restricted and predictable, I enjoyed my bangers and mash, washed down by draught... More
