Great selection of beers and good food

We have been to the bar a few times. Unfortunately no honey beer this time, but still some interesting beers - the Palm was good. This time we tried the bistro. The food was delicious. I had lamb shank in a beer and sage gravy for €27. I suppose I'm used to overpriced food in Western Australia, but... read more

This place is popular, and you can understand why from the quality of the food and the setting (cosy bar/outdoor area downstairs, big nicely designed restaurant space upstairs), but as much as I like it I've always found the prices a bit on the steep side overall. Then again, welcome to Northern Europe.

While wandering in Helsinki, we found Belge and decided to give it a try. Once inside, we discovered that the bistro was upstairs, and we were given a lovely little table in a window nook. This was a "library" bar and bistro, so there were books throughout the rooms, our menu was incorporated into a Tintin book, and the decorations... More

First of all, in my opinion this restaurant is too expensive for this quality of food. For the money we spent there with my friends we could eat in a fine dining restaurant in Helsinki. Food is not too bad there, but very average for this price. But the worst was the service. We had to wait for the main... More

We went in with my husband just to get a little nightbite. I ordered the muscles with lobstersauce, and it was excellent. Happy feeling in my mouth the rest of the night. My husband had the clubsandwich with chicken and he was very satisfied with the dish aswell. Very juicy sandwich. Definetely going there again.

Me and a friend go here for the excellent mussles and great occasion for a good talk and catching up. Very friendly service and a cozy yet trendy interior. Food is fabulous. It can be a bit crowded on a Thursday and Friday nights as it is a VERY popular place.

Be Careful !!! If you order Moules Frites (mussels), mind there might be some mud inside. The kitchen cannot give any explanation to this fact.

Looks small from the outside. A good place, offers booth pub and restaurant, with dito food. Could easily count to more then 20 sorts of Belgien beer in the pub upstairs.

Appearance inside was bringing a bit higher hopes - the food was ok, but nothing really special. Friendly staff, good service.
