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!

We went for a team dinner at this place and had a great time.It was a Fri evening and the cafe was full. We had boutique beer, chips and the mussels,which this place is famous for. Lovey place for lunch or dinner at the heart of CBD.

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

This is a fun place to try on a Friday night as an alternative to the Bavarian Bier Cafe or what used to be called the Lowenbrau (now called Munich Brauhaus) just down the road. This palce favours the Belgian beers as opposed to the heady German beers, which means it has the Abbey beers, Trappiste beers and the fruity,... More

Great atmosphere with a long bar to lean on and lots of low sided cubicles to dine tete a tete. The staff are mostly year out students from all over the World who take pride in their work and engage in polite banter if provoked, making the visitor feel very welcome and cosmopolitan. The emphasis for food is European as... More

I was a little surprised to find my experience at the Belgian Beer Café lacklustre as it seemed to attract positive reviews. Yes there is a huge selection of beers, so if that's what you are looking for it may be the right place for you. But the atmosphere was lacking in my personal opinion - the place is really... More

The Belgian Beer cafe serves some great beers, including and absolute stunner called Delirium Tremens - a must try for anyone that hasn't tasted it. The food is average and over priced in my opinion. And the beer is not cheap, but even the mainstays of Leffe Blonde and Hoegaarden are good. The mussels are a great option for something... 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.
