I had a very pleasant experience on my most recent visit to this Moeder Lambic.

Beer selection isn't massive but certainly respectable. What they do have is amazing. Had a few Cantillon brews, including the Faro which I've been told by a local can only be found here, and was very happy with the price tag (especially for Europe). It's obviously not going to be as cheap as the Cantillon brewery (if you go to ML, you must go to the brewery, too) a little ways away, but still not bad.

Staff was helpful and attentive. Didn't have to wait long on our drinks, even though it was a busy day. Nice outdoor eating area (this is in Western Europe, so I suppose it's to be expected) but the indoor seating is nice, as well. Good atmosphere all around. Mixed crowd. Some tourists, some locals, some professionals, some blue-hair types, etc...

All I could ask for in a bar. If you're in the city, you should definitely stop by.

EDIT:

Holy shit their quiche is good. Service, beer, etc... still outstanding, yada yada. EAT THE QUICHE.

This place was amazing..........Cantillon on Cask Gueuze, Kriek & Frambiose. Drank a bottle of Zenne Y Fonterea for 50 Euros and had a chalk board draft list that was amazing.
