An excellent selection of different types of Belgian beer on tap, we tired a few styles. It was our first taste of lambic and even though to an American sour beer sounds strange, we really enjoyed it. For snack we had a raw-milk cheese plate, delicious as was the accompanying bread.

So wanted this place to be great after reading all the reviews here and was hoping for somewhere like Zero Degrees in Cardiff, but it was a massive disappointment. On a not-particularly-busy early evening, service was painfully slow - you got the feeling that staff took the view that this place is mentioned in so many guidebooks that they don't have to try too hard to keep customers since there'll be a steady flow of new ones. It took 10 minutes to get a drink (in the end I had to go up to the bar myself rather than wait for table service) - on this basis, we went elsewhere to eat. (The cheese plate looked (and smelled) pretty good, but overpriced). If tourists want to carry on following their guidebooks and going here, that's great - it'll free up space at some of the better places in town for the rest of us.

Dropped in for a drink and was impressed with the ambiance and helpful service. Sat outside and soaked up the cool vibes in the summer sunshine. Tried one of their lambic beer cocktails, which is their speciality. The snacks are a good sized portion too. Well worth a visit for the atmosphere and eclectic selection of beer.

Great choice of beers on tap (I would say about 40) so we didn't bother asking for the bottles menu.

Waiters are knowledgeable about the beers and always ready to help you decide.

I ended up spending 3 evening there in 5 days!

We stayed in a hotel quite close by and walked past this bar on several occassions. On our last night we didn't have a particularly great night, bad service in another restaraunt and a couple of bars, so on the way back to the hotle we stopped here for a drink and thanks to the very friendly waiter's recommendations on drinks and snacks we ended up having a great night. Thanks very much.
Definitely would recommend this bar, and if I go back to Brussels I will definitely have a proper meal here.
