I found this tiny restaurant by accident late one evening and was immediately attacted by the look of this very Belgian bistro.
Housed in a narrow nineteenth century building, with high-ceilings, ornate chandeliers and Art Nouveau Horta door, window and fireplace, there are only 8 tables packed closely together; no room for any more!
They pride themselves on an enormous range of less well-known beers from micro-breweries mostly within the capital, but for me the star was the food. This is not "fine dining" but Belgian comfort food at its very best. My Wexford Steak (I have no idea whether the meat was Irish or of a particular cut) in port sauce was quite thebest steak I have eaten in many years, cooked perfectly and served with a choice of chips (with home made mayonnaise), stoemp, rice or vegetables.
The proprietress (I am assuming here) was charming, friendly, chatty and quite happy to serve me at 10.30 on a rainy night.
It was so good that I went back the next evening at a more reasonable hour, and was happy to wait with a beer for a table to become free .... it is deservedly popular, brimming with character and altogether a good experience (as long as you are happy with a cheap and cheerful bistro).
I used to live in Brussels; I wish I had discovered this restaurant at that time.
