We went here about 8:00 p.m. on a Tuesday. It was about 1/5 full.

It is a pretty space with tall ceilings, cool pillars, some nice old décor, etc. It is lived in but not dingy. This to me is a classic Brussels Bar.

They had a decent selection of beers. Nothing really rare or hard to find, but good stuff for any beer lover.

The food our group had was ok, nothing bad but nothing really memorable.

Service started out great and then lost interest as it get closer to closing time.

I enjoyed my stop here but liked other places in Brussels much better.

Very old place with some cool history and a mellow vibe. Food and beer were good. Service was very friendly to me and my family- a group of very obvious tourists from the USA. Food is good but simple. Selection is pretty solid with an assortment of Trappist beers, beers from the Mort Subite brewery (obviously), and 4 or 5 rotating selections which is pretty cool

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.
