We stopped by this place because I really fancied some moules marinieres, and we' just enjoyed a drink on the patio facing it. We sat on the patio, but I did poke around inside, and its a nice olde-worlde feeling place - dark and atmospheric.
The beer menu is limited compared to many places in the city, but still well-chosen, and there should be something for you on it as long as you're not fussy. Nothing outrageous or rare, though.
The food was a little hit and miss. While my wife's rabbit in gueuze was stunning, my mussels weren't a patch upon the ones I get at home, or even the ones I can make myself. Usually I would just chalk it up as a loss, but food is damn expensive in Brussels.
Service was fine and attentive.

Food comes first at this well-used corner of Brussels's St. Catherine restaurant district. In fact, most of the tables will have wine on them, and few visitors seem to notice the well-chosen beer list. All the better, then, that they even bother to make sure there's an authentic gueuze to go with your lambic-braised rabbit, etc. They feature Cantillon -- the owners, the Van Roys, were seated two tables over, on my recent visit -- and have a few dozen other offerings, some in 75cl bottles. The cooking is as classic (or perhaps just old-fashioned) as its decor of dark wood and rustically checked curtains. The service has always been discretely helpful and English-speaking. Ultimately, it's for a nice meal out rather than a beer-hunting or a scene-cruising occasion. (FYI, this is a Jan. 2011 edit of an original June 2008 post, as I've accumulated a few more visits, each seemingly better than the last.)
