Roughly in between the Grand Place and Bier Circus (though closer to the former), this is one of the more charming spots to stop for a drink in Brussels. Rows of long tables greet you upon entrance, with gold-trimmed mirrors next to tasteful floral still-lifes on yellowed walls. The place has a history, and feels like it.

The beer list not bad -- around 30-40 selections. The highlight is an oude gueuze from De Keersmaeker. Waitstaff is attentive and more knowledgeable than your average restauranter about their beers, but not entirely up to beer-geek standard. Quite friendly, though, as this place draws its fair share of tourists for the atmosphere.

Some decent cheeses for snacks, as well as an assortment of jellied meats for the more adventuresome. This is a nice place for a pre-dinner drink or two.

I was there about 1.5 years ago and it was a great place to stop in for a drink. A few beers and a meat and cheese plate. The staff was friendly to foreigners and the drink menu was decent. A great place to stop.

The vibe is incredible - they haven't done much to it for a century or so. they feature beer from Mort Subite but if those don't strike your fancy there are 30 or bottled and craft beers on tap. It's a nice place to stop and have a sandwich and a beer.
