There is some great beer, there is some decent food. The staff are friendly and accomodating. The only thing is I found it a little expensive for what it was, but this probably has something to do with the location. If you're used to CBD prices, this place is decent.

The Belgian Beer Cafe always delivers the goods, with tasty and abundant mussel pots, and a good selection of Belgian beers. The staff is helpful, although the place could use a couple of extra waiters. On my last visit there were no more than two waiters for the whole place! All in all, they were able to take care of...

Sooo many delicious beers to choose from. Huge range of trappist beers. Huge range of wheat, dark, flavoured beers. All natural brews with no crap in them. Did not eat there so cannot comment on the food, the beers are expensive, but remember some of the beers are up to 12% alcohol, so in perspective they are reasonably priced for... More

Great range of top quality Belgian beers with a decent menu and good service. Go easy on the Leffe if you need to make any important decisions - like when to go home! A short stroll into the heart of The Rocks and easy transport access help make this a favourite venue away from the 'George St' crowd.

A bit pricey and service was quite slow, but if you are craving for typical Belgian fare, nothing fancy, this is the place to go. I was so happy to find Kriek beer to go with my mussels!

as you will be hungover as hell the next day. This place is not for amateurs. Belgian beers are top shelf, from your basics Leffe & Hoegarden (yeah basic level I know), right through to your trappists, variety of Chimay's or abbey beers. Get a waffle or schniztel to assist in softening the blow. You have been warned, one cannot... More

Lunch on a Tues afternoon at peak hour only had 5 tables occupied. That is understandable as their signature dish - Mussels are on offer at $20 a pot on every Wednesdays! On this tues, we paid $30 for a pot. Not getting the crowd and having fantastic service is a lovely treat in the CBD. The mussels are well... More

We had a kilo of mussels each plus mashed potato and a bottle of wine. All up $109. The mussels, either Siam or Tin Tin au Congo were spot on. Large mussels in an excellent broth. It was a pity that the mashed potatoes were cold - not long enough in the microwave. The wine was good value.

The service wasn't good as expected and the list of beer isn t so extended at what they says. We came at 8 and everyone were quiet dessapointed about the price of the beers. It s more expansive to buy a beer on tap at the beers in bottles. I will not come back anymore in this place ever. Please... More

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
