This is a great bar for ambiance and beer. It has real old-world and back-street charm. It has a tiled floor, wood paneling and wrought iron but in an understated way. It has rows of small wooden tables packed together. The focus is very much on the beer, although food is served. Their specialty is the Timmermans Lambic Doux. Itís a quiet pleasant place. The draught beer is served in ceramic jugs with small glass tumblers.

Would have never found this place if we didnít buy a book that told us to go there. It was off the street through a little alley near the Grand Plaza. The inside is very traditional looking and the servers were wearing old style clothes. The selection of beer was only lambics, which I thought was great because thatí my favorite style but it was only between Cantillon and Timmermans. We were able to get a sampler which was great. The spaghetti was awesome. It had lots of melted cheese, ham and peas in it. Great little place.

Honestly, this is the kind of place I can spend hours. A little bit of food to keep you upright.
Fun place to sit with strangers and drink good local beer, if your looking to tick big boys this is not your place. This is the place to relax, drink and hang out.

Small and hidden place in the center of brussels. The offer unblended lambic beers (draft) which is a real speciality! Can only recommend to try it yourself!

Very traditional place close to Grand Place. They serve great lambic in a traditional stone pitcher and you can eat bred with white cheese. If you like lambics you must come to this place.

Very nice place but difficult to find. Quiet so itís a nice place to relax and drink a beer. Not a lot of variety, mostly lambic beers.

I guess I must have been lucky because we found this little cafe by accident one night. The interior is truly warm and quaint with medieval character. There are many decorations of Lambic and Faro bottles around the wooden tables and chairs that line the little cafe. I tried the Lambic Doux that was served in a small ceramic pitcher (that I bought as a souvenir). The Lambic was delicious and seems to be rare due to the fact that Ive never seen it anywhere else.

One of my favorite bars in Brussels.
The fantastic brass barrel on the bar, jugs of lambic on every table. This is a wonderful place to drink in, it is peaceful even when busy, people respect their beer that come in here. A true classic in my opinion, I couldnít visit Brussels without walking down the alley to this bar.
The service has always been fine, as has been the quality of the beers, there are livelier places to drink in Brussels, but this is what the Brussels beer scene is really all about. Miss it at your peril!
