Dining destination in Brussels - small place, snagged a table without issue around 6pm but I imagine it was tough sledding after that.

This is a restaurant. This is not a bar.

Brussels black pudding to start things off - mmm, blood. It's difficult to imagine not eating some sort of carbonnade/stoofvlees while in Brussels. I've seen that dish prepared in numerous different ways, but here, the house specialty is a preparation in Rochefort (8, i believe). Naturally, I paired the dish with the same.

Not a mindblowing beerlist, but lengthy, and it seemed they may have had some rotating releases on the fireplace that included some more obscure stuff (lou pepes, etc).

Service was typical for Belgium, somewhere between adequate and absent.

Solid spot - look forward to the next visit

Visited with my wife on a recent trip to Brussels and Munich.

Tried the following:
Brasserie de la Senne Anspach Porter (bottle)
Dok Brewing Pro-Pale (draft)

The Anspach was excellent while the Pro-Pale was average. My wife enjoyed her wine. Had the Flemish Beef Stew in Trappistes Rochefort sauce for dinner and the Speculoos Ice Cream for dessert; both dishes were phenomenal. Warm, low-key vibe in here; perfect for conversing over a meal. Service was good as food and drinks arrived at the table in reasonable time. Our overall experience was stellar, and we would definitely come back.

Exceptional food. Cuisine a la biére that is thoughtful and unique. We had bloempanch in Hanssens Cassis sauce, and stoofvlees that were both excellent. Dupont Rédor Pils was a perfect light hoppy pairing with the rich food.

The interior is sparse with a few elaborate architectural details, like a chandelier, and Art Deco flourishes to the front windows and fireplace detailing. Several framed works of Constructivist-era art dot the walls. A tiny bar with 4-5 stools in back.

Beer list is very extensive and focuses on the new school Belgian brewers along with the classics. Large selection of Alvinne, and fairly high prices on anything limited. Didn't see anything we had to have for the price, and stuck with the very affordable Dupont on draft.

Service was excellent and attentive, unlike most places that are more laissez-faire. It was fairly upscale in terms of quality but was far from pretentious. Very relaxed vibe, and easy to have a conversation there. I hope to return on my next trip to Brussels.

ate dinner here. fairly small place, but there is a very small bar (4 seats) that you can get a beer while you are waiting for a table - which we did. There are a few beers on tap, and then an extensive bottle list. the list was organized by brewery, and the servers were helpful in selecting some recommendations since most beers are just a name, nothing to designate style. selections are a mix of traditional breweries plus some newer breweries brewing modern beer styles. the food wasn't fancy, but it was very good, and decent portions.

Visited during the spring of 2017 on a weekday evening around 10pm. A small place. Ten tables and about four spots at the bar. I had to wait thirty minutes but the beer selection was good ( especially for me since I’m not a local) and the bartender was lovely to talk to. Loved the old school we do our best work late at night vibe. The rabbit fricassee made with lambic was unbelievable.

Rustic, old-school decoration with ornate woodwork. A high ceiling helps deaden some of the noise. It feels like a long standing place to eat and drink, although it is fairly small. Quality is excellent in everything. The food preparation is good with a good display, the restrooms are clean, the place is clean, and the beer is good. Service is helpful and spoke English with me (two different servers over the course of my one hour visit). They were helpful in selecting a beer. Selection is solid, with the menu dividing out based on style. The only area that was lacking was the Trappist section, or more so, the lack thereof. Some of those Trappist beers were mixed in with the dark and brown categories, but a clean division for those seeking Belgian Trappist beers on a Brussels visit would be more friendly. Two guest taps help alter the selection although the beer's available is already fairly extensive. Food is great and outshines the beer, if slightly. Several of the dishes feature beer and are labeled as such, so a beer could both be ordered in the glass and a meal ordered prepared with the same beer (although it would be up to the customer to find this pairing, and isn't an advertised service). A great place to visit for those seeking a beer meal served with a good beer.

Like a previous reviewer said, I almost don't want to praise this place, because it's so damn tiny. But I'm going to anyway!

Place is, as I said, tiny. Maybe twenty-thirty seats in a narrow room. Setting is intimate, but not claustrophobic, probably thank to the ceiling height. We got there early and managed to snag a table by the window.

Beer list is ridiculous. They don't have the basic staples of Belgian beer, because you can get those anywhere. No, this list is well curated and varied beoynd belief. Prices are also very reasonable for Brussels. Be sure to check the list on the website!

Food was excellent, with some cool takes on classic Belgian dishes, many made with beer they serve. I had the flemish beef stew, always a good bet, and my friend had the vegetarian burger, which was pretty unique.

Service is quick, polite and in total command of the beer list.

The vibe is friendly and the staff never push you to give up your table, even if you're done eating. Ordering good beer helps, of course.

In conclusion, if you're in Brussels, this place deserves your money. Just get there early!

This restaurant is located in a storefront setting, and is quite small inside so that the seating is somewhat crowded together (I counted 22 total chairs). A small bar at the rear seems to be only for patrons who are waiting for a table. A couple of tables outdoors also were being used by persons waiting for seating inside. (It was a chilly day, thus I doubt these people were going to stay there very long.) We arrived for an early dinner and got the last table for two.

The beer list here is all bottled offerings except for two beers on tap (both from Brasserie Dupont at the time of our visit). But the list of bottled beers looks like it is about 150 total bottles, most (or all) being Belgian. We split a bottle of Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus, and it was very tasty.

Many of the food entrees are described as being cooked with beer, so this place has a true beer focus. The food dishes that we chose were outstanding, and we wished that we could come here every evening during our trip. Tomorrow was going to take us to Germany, thus we have to put a re-visit on a back burner. This restaurant is highly recommended.
