I go here regularly for the sports but my taste is offbeat - Gaelic games, rugby and golf rather than soccer. However, staff are very accommodating and almost always tune-in a TV screen for me, directing soccer fans to the multiple other screens. I tip accordingly. Food, when I bother to eat, is good value and unpretentious. Guinness is very... More

We were looking for a sunday lunch and found this place, lovely food, good atmosphere and good service. They say on the menu Traditional Sunday Lunch, but I wouldn't class it as that, it was however very nice and didn't disappoint in taste, Roast beef with mash potato, what I would call potato dauphinoise and mixed veg ( french beans,...

Expat pubs usually have a tight bound between staff and regulars. There's always a group that becomes part of the furniture. Even so, I was surprised to see a staff member snigger along, while a regular repeatedly tried to get a rise out of some quiet sod who dropped in to watch a soccer match. Wasn't the first time either.... More

On this lively square, De Valera's provides a bit of green, and it's not just the Irish beer - you overlook the ponds of Ixelles. I did have my first Guinness in years, and it was good. And our cheeseburgers were excellent. We got in just before the live Sunday soccer on TV, so ours was a quiet lunch. I'd... More

Nice terrace with view of the weekend morning market on Place Flagey while you are having a simple lunch and a pint. With a slight view of the water of the lakes brings a refreshing extra Summer feeling to it. It is an Irish pub outside Ireland, which never really disappoints me, but never excites me. Standard beer and pub... More

First, the location: terrace, sun, a beautiful place, close to the lake, nice surroundings. After the place, yes, it's Irish... ;-) You have to go there for the atmosphere, and the burgers! Quality, freshness, great service, fair prices! And they have really good vegetarian burgers, quite rare. Oh yes, try a Snakebite... ;-)

A really good thing is that you can get food any time of the day, especially people like us need such a place. Because all of a sudden you have a hole in your body that needs to be filled fast. We did not have to wait long for our orders. My husband had a sandwich with smoked salmon and... More

What you would normally have in an Irish pub (beer) was surprisingly well accompanied by 2 excellent sides: slightly spicy wings and cheese croquetes. Both were very very good I am only giving a 4 because the waitress made a mistake with a beer that I ended up paying myself, but the overall ambiance was very good and the food... More

This pub has a nice atmosphere and a good menu. I can recommend it for lunch or to grab a bite with friends. I wouldn't go here if you are looking for a nice dinner, it's a bit loud and crowded. Still, it's a great place to enjoy a football match and some pub food.
