This was the first place I stumbled into after an exhausting 12 hour trip overnight from boston, and it made me happy.

The building is beautiful, the interior is very warm and inviting. Long wooden benches on the side and smaller tables scattered throughout. It was about 11am when we entered and still somewhat empty.

We were greeted immediately (which almost NEVER happens to me in europe) and served up beers very quickly. The waitress spoke a bit of english and generally got a kick out of my broken french.

The beer selection is average...my first thought was to look for beers that I had never seen at home in the states, and this was easisly accomplished. My companions chose more tried and true beers we were better accquianted with. However they do offer these huge (500ml I think) glasses for the draft beers.

The food was good, and what we later discovered, pretty typical of a bar in belgium....mostly finger food & apps....some nice sandwhiches. Trappist cheese & butter came with a lot of the stuff.

It got more & more crowded as we stayed...the lunch rush was considerable, but I found the one sole waitress working still paid attention to us

Definitely worth a try

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 got 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.
