Trying some beautiful Belgian beers, great choices selected by the very knowledgeable barman. They have roughly 50 beers on draught none of which I had ever heard of so the helpful guidance of the barman was great

Popped here on Saturday after reading such great reviews. We'd been wandering around the Christmas market all day and wanted to warm up with a drink and a snack. Staff were lovely and served us right away. My fiancée ordered a beer under the waitresses recommendation and I went for a homemade lemonade (as I'm pregnant). We also asked for... More

Picture the scene; three friends had just arrived in the city and were getting cold and wet. We felt like we'd left the centre and were entering the suburbs. We turn around and see twinkling lights drawing us in. Well, it was almost like that. Brussels is a much smaller city than I'd expected, so when we felt like we... More

They have a large selection of beers on tap here, not just from Belgium, but from elsewhere too. It gets quite lively and crowded at times, but it can be very pleasant sitting outside on the terrace in the sunshine at the right time of the year. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. Food is limited in my... More

Since we are beerlovers, we really like this place because it offers a wide range of beers. Even some beers we had never tasted before...! :) The food is good. We tried the bread with paté, the bread with cheese and two sorts of quiche (we were with four friends). It tasted all really good and was nicely presented. The... More

Although I liked Moeder Lambic bit better, this is excellent bar with extensive beer selection, which are in perfect condition. Staff was very helpfull to find table for us in crowded place, they are quick and knowledgeable. Recommended place.

Great first stop into Brussels. Maybe a mile or two from the train station. The staff doesn't speak very good English but I don't speak very good French so we're even. Cantillon speaks for itself.

Very nice belgium pub, central, with nice decoration on the inside and quite lovely also to seat outside (if weather allows it). A lot of tap beer and also a lot of classic belgium beers. Try it and you'll love it.

Had great help with the vast beer selection, the bar itself is so good looking! I wish I had one near me at home.

This became more or less like our "local" when we visited Brussels, even though it was a good walk away from our hotel. Awesome selection in draft beers, with both a regular menu and weekly specials. In addition the staff was very friendly and competent. I will return every time I visit Brussels, for sure.

Thank Yri L
