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.

Food is pretty good, burgers, steaks and salads, and there are loads ok TVs showing all the sport. The downside is how hard it is to get a drink. When it's busy you wait for ages, when it's not busy you wait ages too.

Far from being the best Irish pub grub, this bar caters for sports of every persuasion. Watch out for your handbags though!

Busy with a nice atmosphere on a Friday night. Classic Irish pub, football on. Reasonably priced. Just outside the Commission. Staff were efficient at the bar; always a plus!

The food is good. The beer is good. It's a tiny bit of Ireland. Magners etc. I suggest the chilli con carne or the burger. Nice to with quiz night.

De Valera's is pub located on Flagey Square, a trendy place in Brussels. You may have a drink (Guinness, Kilkenny, Strongbow, Belgian Beers) or go there for lunch or dinner. The menu proposes different kinds of burgers, salads or the classical Fish & Chips. The fish & chips is excellent (with peas, tartar sauce). Another good choice is the lamb... More
