I was there in 2004, I had a good time, but probably I consider it more interesting for the food than for the beers.

Very cozy little place, they make you feel very welcome. The Cantillon on tap was a wonderful starter. The carbonnade and the stoemp were both plentyful and tasty as all get out.

I had a lovely meal here recently (in Brussels). I can still imagine the creamy mushroom sauce mede with lambic for their Chicken Spinnekopke...yum...tasty table bread and even good frites! Beside good food, the owner has a house beer, Betchard, 5.5% Artisonale blonde contract brewed by Brasserie de la Senne - smooth, tasty like a saison with subtle fennel and other herbs. This beer was not on the menu. On the menu were Cantillon lambic and faro on tap, a few others on tap, 11 Abbaye, 14 Trappists (the Westys had 5.5 scratched out and 10 or so hand written as updates), many big bottles and 36 artisanales, however, many they no longer carry. The new goal is to open a new brewery in Tubize around June, and then a brasserie/cafe around December, and eventually a museum. They hope to export to the U.S.

this is more of an upscale restaurant then beer bar. which we werent aware of. they had a house apertif drink which was a white beer with gueuze. very nice. good beer selection with food pairings. knowledgable staff. was a little too snooty for me and expensive. nonetheless good authentic belgium food.

The food is excellent, the wait-staff is professional and knowledgeable, and the beer selection is quite good. And they make certain dishes with Belgian beers! There is also some outdoor seating available. A local institution. If you do the Cantillon brewery tour, you may see the painting there which shows people sitting outside this very restaurant. Their selection of Belgian beers is very good (though we also found that they lacked some of the listed beers we asked for); however, no place Ive ever seen with a better selection also has the food to match.

Great food, however I had a dissappointing meal. A broken piece of glass in my lambic sorbet ruined the meal. Otherwise, wonderful beer, wonderful food.

A finer restaurant than I usually go to, with an equally fine, carefully selected beerlist. We were there at 2 pm on monday, so only had to wait two minutes before getting a table. Actually, we were going to make a reservation for tuesday, but decided to stay as we were hungry. Had entrees and main courses, plus dessert and one beer each for 72 eur total (for 2 persons). Not exactly cheap, but that seemed to be the price level overall in Brussels for "real" dinners. The food was really good, but not really better than what we make at home - except the Carolus sauce, which was great with Filet Pur de Buf. The portions were quite small, so youd better have at least two courses if hungry. I recommend having the Choix de Sorbet la Bire (sherbet of kriek, wit and Maredsous) for dessert. They say its the only place serving beer sherbets. As usual, the menu was only in French and Flemish, but the waiter (an old man, and quite a character) was happy (in his own, sarcastic way) to clarify the necessary parts in English. Red meats on the list are few and expensive (although not even filet), but that seems to be a problem in Brussels (and Belgium?) in general. I wonder why, since there were cattle everywhere we drove in the countryside, and while theres no sea even near, they serve seafood in every corner.

Very interesting place, almost midieval in feel. Amazing selection of beers including draft lambic and the menu features items made with beer as well. Oddly, the music while I was there was a Madonnas Greatest Hits collection, which was unnerving to say the least. Service was very good, as was the food. Not cheap, though! Worth a stop, definitely.

Liked this place a lot. Had the lunch menu each time I was there which was really good and a fair bit cheaper than everything else. Only ever drunk Cantillon lambic and I never even saw a beerlist! Great service and building.

Dont come here hungry or with a companion of the same sex, unless you like that sort of thing (which is perfectly fine). They serve great food here but the portion size is for children, mind you that I am also an American. They do serve Cantillon Faro here, which is a major +. I probably wont be back until I am able to bring my future wife for a romantic evening.
