The entrance way has a bit of a dungeon feel but once inside you find a beautiful old brick cellar with a series of long picnic type tables. Small but interesting Belgian taps of the craft variety listed on the blackboard as well as a few fridges of bottles. A few tables of clueless tourists ladies tells me it may be in a guidebook or two. Service was so so, he seemed more keen to chat with his friend than serve customers at first. I’d go back on my next visit to see what’s on tap.

Short walk from Chez Moeder Lambiek Fontainas, not too far from Central & South Stations. Place is locked in a totally sweet dungeon (big plus for sure). Service was polite & helpful; you need to order at the bar. Beer selection was good, nothing particularly rare or new to me but solid beers as well. Prices were good overall with only two or so exceptions. They also had some whiskeys which looked pretty interesting to me but prices for those seemed bit high for me. More interesting they had some cigars for very sweet prices + a great smoking lounge. The cigars really made this place for me, sweet spot to smoke a cigar & drink some great beers.

Visited on a Monday afternoon in October 2014. Located not that far from the Grote Markt, also close to Moeder Lambic Fontainas. A relaxed place in a dark cellar with candlelights and with quite a lot of character. The selection was ok and the service was friendly although the bartender spoke limited English.

Great spot, with a wonderful dungeon aesthetic. The beer list won’t wow a seasoned beer geek, but this a a great place revisit so,e of the Belgian ’Greatest Hits’. Pretty good value given the central location. Adequate bar service. A good spot to check out if you are spending a few days in Brussels and want to branch out beyond the famous bars in town.

Bamsen78  (197) Sřnderborg, Denmark | July 24, 2014
Located off the busiest part of the centre but sufficiently close to Grote Markt, this pub occupies several rooms in a low cellar. The selection is good, featuring good lambic and triple stuff in bottles and some decent Belgians on tap, too. The staff are very friendly and they know enough about what they sell. They speak basic English, and I was just so sorry to see some stupid, overlord Yanks riducule the poor man because of his less-than-perfect language proficiency (and no, our cousins from over there did not speak any French or Flemish for that matter). No food. Not very expensive and quite cheerful. I might be back again.

Been here before a few years back and it hasn’t changed a bit. Still as dark and cellar-y (ha) as I remember. No real surprises but hey they have the classics and the likes of De Dolle on hand. Service is fine.
