A food restaurant more than a beer place. Belgian stuff, but nothing rare. Service was slow, food was pricey though well executed. Really, the very slow service in a more than half empty restaurant was very off putting.

Small café like bar in the very centre of Helsinki. Crowded with tourists (at least during the summer months). All Belgian beers on taps are quite obvious. Nothing really interesting or rare. Quite pricey too.

More style than substance. It seems like it’s more for non beer-nerds who wish to pretend that they know something about beer. (I.e. they’ve got Chimay and Duvel, and other large brands, never seen anything small or specialist at all.) The food’s tasty though, but not cheap. A bit noisy too.

A nice Belgian style restaurant. A bar at street level and restaurant and library room on 2nd floor. Nice food and some good Belgian pale and dark beer on draught and also some bottled ones. They have special clam weeks in autumn.
