The food selection is good featuring very large mussels prepared many differrent ways. There are also good sandwiches and a wide... read more

Until this weekend was my bar/restaurant of choice while staying in Wellington, having spent many enjoyable times there dining and sampling wines and beers. This weekend was especially important to us as we were in town to celebrate my wife's birthday. With this in mind we called in to book a table for dinner only to be told that the... More

My family and I ran across this place during our stay in Wellington and had a fantastic meal. I lived in Belgium for a number of years and immediately loved the menu. The beer and food, especially the mussels, did not disappoint. It's a comfortable, inviting space with great service. Our server, Alex, went above and beyond when I stupidly... More

I have been popping in here for drinks / dinner over the past 2 years on my trips to Wellington and it is consistently good. The staff are very friendly and there's the added bonus for those who like beer that there is the Belgian range of beers. For wine drinkers like myself there is a good choice on offer.... More

Nice place to catch a lunch out of the busy workday. The place looks really well lit and nicely maintained. You do smell the authenticity of the restaurant and get a good taste of what it promises.

Amazing selection of European beers on tap served in branded glasses. And exceptional food for a "Pub" feeling". Good food but great drinks and atmosphere brought back so many memories of my ventures through Europe.

I mainly chose to eat here because of the charge back arrangement and convenience to my apartment accommodation. Having said that, the menu looked appetising and seemed popular with plenty of patrons inside. The service was prompt, efficient and waitress advised there was a large booking so there may be a delay. I ordered and was pleasantly surprised with the... More

Belgium style pub and food. Great atmosphere. Very good service. Had the stuffed veal but the oxtail also excellent. Not for vegetarians! Very good beer selection. Too many to choose from.
