Visited October 2012.
This was one of the last stops of the night after wandering all over the city. While I’m not overly excited about Mort Subite beers I was more than happy to check out the pub and try all the beers. Not surprisingly the base lambic isn’t bad, they just ruin it with all the fruit syrups making alcopop garbage. The pub was jam packed with people but we did manage to get a table and a set of .25 L pours. Service wasn’t bad but it was the usual sub par Belgian service. It’s in a nice area so there is a reason to go here but it’s not really a top beer destination.

Anrikt ställe med oerhört välkläd och rutinerad personal. Utbudet av öl och mat är inte det bästa i Belgien men känslan i lokalen är härlig.

Classy old building, almost palace-like. Busy and crowded, brightly lit place, more like a coffee shop than a pub. Selection ok, their own lambics and some other basic beers.

I visited here around 6 years ago with my then girlfriend(now wife) as it was in her Japanese guidebook. This place rocks in terms of ambiance, if you want a classy looking European cafe/bar with original turn of the century(early 20th) architecture then look no further. That being said the comments about the beers & prices are fairly accurate. In other words, this place is average for Belgium in that sense, the staff are friendly but it isn’t a beer geek place. Good for couples, my wife enjoyed her kriek...

Hvis du er like glad i Art Deco-stilen som det jeg er, må du besøke denne selv om den ølmessig ikke er noen stor opplevelse. Flaks at den lå rett rundt hjørnet for hotellet. Innemiljøet er storartet, men å sitte ute på fortauet er heller traurig, bare trafikk og ikke noe miljø å snakke om.

A La Mort Subite is a place that should be visited the excuisite ambiance created by its well-preserved interrior. The staff is kind and helpful, but are naturally no beer experts. The beer selection includes mostly belgian brews in tap and bottles. Interestingly, the pub has also its own lambic beer brand labelled "Mort Subite". I haven’t sampled their brews, but I’ve come to know that they are so-called "commercial lambics", which are usually mediocre at best. Small snacks and cheese are available at an affordable price.

Every guide book says this is a "must visit" so since I was just around the corner and curious about the rabbit I stuck my head in. I wish I hadn’t. Despite the interior being very interesting the beers here are abysmal sugar bomb caricatures of the lambic style. With Delirium Cafe, Chez Moeder, Le Bier Circus, and probably a dozen more places within easy walking distance this one can be skipped.

Visited in may 2011. Not many beers and this is more a restaurant than beer bar, but their lambic was refreshing and place was big.

Visited May 2013. Recommended in every guide book covering Brussels and in the city center. What could possibly go wrong? I guess that most of the visitors in the bar where tourists like us. As many previous ratings has described this is a 1920´s Art deco café - all well preserved. Décor is quite an experience - service was busy but still attentive. Beer selection is so-so for Belgium: Alken-Mass beers and a few good trappists. Go here for the atmosphere and the fantastic interior and enjoy a beer. Not a place for the big beer experience.

Decor is incredible – like best ever. Looks totally unchanged from the time of Jacques Brel – it is like walking back into the past. I adore it absolutely. Unfortunately there is little else to this place other than the decor. Service is okay, standard. Pretty crowded. Beers are just the regular pale lagers you can get everywhere plus the Mort Subite beers, 5 or so available. Pure lemonade & not worth the effort. Still if you are in the neighborhood, you need to check out the interior.
