Tiny old bar, with a great old style atmosphere inside. Just a few beers available, but at least a few bottles of Lambic, and a bag-in-the-box of Oud Beersel Oude Lambik. Tried one sausage, and it was poor quality.

Fleur en Papier Dorée, apparently Magritte used to drink here and half the bar/restaurant oozes character and is old school with art & brick-a-brac coating all the walls, irregular floors & tables very atmospheric. The back extension is bright generic dinner, boring. Also if you ask what beers they have on tap no mention will be made of their Geuze or lambics! They’re bag in a box fresh so not considered to be on tap. Ask what geuze/lambics they have. Great place.

OK, so apparently this bar was home to the Belgian surrealists, a sort of Montmartre style café in Brussels. The interior is quite cool, definitely has an old school artsy cafe vibe to it, even though I was there when it was chuck full it wasn’t too noisy. I didn’t try the food but it looked pretty standard. The beer list was short with mostly classics and I was going to trash this place until lo and behold, I saw they had Girardin kriekenlamibc and Oud Beersel lambic on there for a really good price. Prices are good for center standards, and it is a stone’s throw from Moeder Lambic Fontainas. If you have a minute, it’s worth grabbing a beer at.

The thing with this place is that it is an okay place with some truly impressive bars within very short walking distance from it. Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas is 5 min. walking disntance from here. Right next door there is a way cooler & better bar (Porte Noir). This place is focused a bit on food (there didn’t appear to be any vegan options on first glance) & it seemed to be the standard dull Belgian fare + Nüetnigenough is less than a 10 min. from here. Prices are averages, beers selection is okay but average. You can get Oud Beersel lambiek on draft but you can also just walk to Cantillon or Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas.

Visited quickly here on a sunday . List is average to even less . I could not immidiatly find any craft beer accept for zinnebir . Which is great, but if that is the only decent beer they have, why go here ? all the others seemed to be inbev-inspired , with some additionnal brews . Service sure was friendly .Prices were OK

un ancien bar avec une sélection de bière classique belge toutefois l’endroit faut largement le gout d’oeil

Cozy bar with great character, it’s like stepping in a time machine (the back part is newer and doesn’t have the same furnishing though). It doesn’t seem touristy, although it is mentioned in every tour guide since Magritte and Hergé, among other famous writers/artists, frequented the place. Service is good: they have reasonable beer knowledge and they are very friendly. They don’t have a lot on tap, but their bottle list includes some local and some Geuze beers.

Nice cosy bar in the centre of Brussels. Beer list is not very big but well chosen (lambic beers, Brasserie de la Senne,...). Reasonable prices.

A lovely old fashioned bar, wonderfully atmospheric and full of character. The first three rooms of La Fleur have protected status, right down to the furniture and the nicotine stained walls covered with pictures, prints, paintings, newspaper clippings, diplomas and the odd poem. In the mid 20th century this used to be the hang out of artists, writers and politicians - Magritte and Hergé (of Tintin fame), for example, were regulars - and there’s a photo dating from 1953 which shows some of them gathered outside with the café’s founder, Geert van Bruaene, an art dealer also known as le petit Gérard. Another black and white photo fills one wall in the airy conservatory room at the back. They have a reasonable range of bottles plus Leffe on tap and serve snacks and traditional basic meals such as croques and spaghetti bolognese. There are also some sausages hanging over the bar but they may be there as part of the protected status – they certainly looked very old and leathery. (Visited 2 October 2012).

We visited here on Saturday 27th October 2012. It was a little busy when we ventured in here at about 3pm in the afternoon, this was a shame as owing to sheer numbers we sat in the covered conservatory type area at the rear, which was admittedly very spacious and light but lacked the character and interest of the front bars. The front bars (from what I saw) were quite dark and quite tight with a few nooks and crannies and plenty of old blackened woodwork. The bar staff who served us was a friendly and pleasant sort. Beer list decent enough but not huge, I had Zinnebir as I recall. This is close enough to other good places to make this well worth a stop, I liked it but just wish I could have been in the front part.
