Visited twice in last year. The last one, a week before. Nice and cozy place with professional barmaids. They are attentive, but look really tired and disturbed to see clients at the end of the day :) Maybe too long shifts hours?

The interior reminds me how the old belgian bars used to be decorated (and that was a great trip back down the memory lane!) .. Great selection of beers and the steak was pretty good! Staff was very friendly and helpful!
