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.

Good stop for lunch and a beer. And a bit of history. Beer selection is actually fairly small so good first stop.

Tolles Jugendstilambiente und Trappistenbier wie das helle Chimay vom Fass, wunderbar. Das Essen ist hingegen nicht so doll, der Preis für das Gebotene definitiv zu hoch, aber nach dem zweiten Grimbergen auch egal. Ein Treffer in Brüssel!

Visited here with sebletitje. This long narrow space certainly has an antique feel to it The narrow little tables remind me of the kind I’ve seen in Kolsch pubs in Cologne. The space doesn’t lend itself to noise suppression so at about three quarter full it is pretty darn load. I came here to try one of their brews, there were 4 of their own on tap, and it was decent enough. Nothing too exciting on tap is possible and this isn’t a place to seek out to eat so a return visit may not be needed. All in all it was a fun place to experience.

Had not visited the place in years, but got to see it again with Ibrew2or3.
Place has this early 1900s feel to it. I can see it as a nice and quiet spot taking me back to another time away from the busy Brussels.
Beers are forgettable at best showcasing the best of big mass producer Alken Maes that one can find in just about every nigthshops.
The place is noisy with tourists with a table set up reminding me of the old school cafeteria. Food is typical and uninspiring given the price they ask for just bread and cheese, thus letting me believe most of it is straight out of the supermarket pack and quickly microwaved. Rather sad when one knows the wealth of local delicacies.
Service was ok, place just very busy. About the only positive note is the decor.
