Situated in a neighbourhood with more than its fair share of ex-pat bars, this English speaking hostelry more than holds its own.

The food is solid without being spectacular and the beer is reasonably priced. It is a magnet for sports fans as well, showing more or less blanket coverage of whatever is on BT or SKY at any time of the day. When we were there it showed rugby followed by international football late on into the early morning.

If you love burgers, here is the place to be. There lots of choices foods and drinks. Good ambiance with a relax music. You need to know Brussels well to get to this place. It is around Schuman area. Absolutely tasty

We wanted to enjoy a different night in Brussels and we came here. Nice place, English speaking ( a fortune for all the ones that don't know French ;) ) and good food. We had two hamburgers, one with bacon, served with french fries and salad (not so much actually). Then a steak with onion rings, salad and french fries, chopped beef cooked with Guinness beer served with fries and salad and a portion of onion rings. Three beers and half liter of water we paid 18 euros each. The only problem was that we asked clearly to have the hamburger without onions and they ignored our request.
For the rest everything was nice and for the ones who love to watch sports is the best place where they can go.

We came here once for lunch and the next day for the Irish breakfast. Food was good and reasonably-priced without being spectacular (standard pub food, but there's nothing wrong with that). Staff were pleasant. Nice to have a cider on tap. It was very quiet at Saturday/Sunday lunchtimes, but I'll be interested to check it out of an evening some time. Big screens to watch sport, but not too intrusive and the music was mostly good. Beware the grate at the entrance if you're wearing a skirt, mine blew all the way up!!

It's a very good place to eat, nice enviroment and very close to hotels such as Silken and Martin where you would probably stay if you are attending a meeting in the main Commission and Council buildings. The average price for a beer is 4 euro and for food is around 13 euro. I suggest the cheeseburger (full extra) and the traditional fish and chips.
