I must have walked past this place a half dozen times, and it was only on the last night in Brussels, while out getting candy and souvenirs and all that stuff, that I saw it was a brewery. Itís packed in with all of the other restaurants and bars, so itís easy to ignore while walking around. Well, the beer isnít so great - mediocre recipes, but at least the presentation was nice, although a little gimmicky given the location. A beer sampler (about 5-6oz each of three) came with a cheese, meat and cracker plate. Rock on. Like I said, beer quality was lacking, but if youíre there in the Grote Markt you might as well drop in and try them.

Dusty and smokey, not very friendly when I visited. There are many better places in the area. A missed opportunity to properly represent Belgian beers to the world. Instead itís a tourist trap.

(Visited 12/2011): Located in the Grote Markt, Les Brasseurs is a touristy brewpub right in the thick of everything.
The inside is narrow with 2 levels and the bar along the right side. Bright red walls, disco balls and the brewing equipment right near the entrance.
Les Brasseurs has 4 beers on draught, including a Blonde, Amber, Tripel and Dark Beer on our visit. The ones we tried were fairly average. They have 40-50 bottled beers as well.
Service was decent on a relatively slow early evening.
Food at Les Brasseurs included sandwiches which were on the bar food scale quality wise.
Overall this place may be worth a stop in passing but there are better places nearby.

Forgettable brewpub in central Brussels. Beers are poorly brewed. The place was also empty on our visit and the guy at the bar was quite rude. Also very pricey to try the beers. Best to avoid unless you really want a few ticks.

Arrived there at opening, only client and had to wait for staff for their attention. Rather cold service, impersonal. The place is quite nice, full of wood, brass, and visible fermentors. Beer was under par for Brussels. 4 samples for 6.80 euros. Attrape tourist.

Located right in the Grote Markt, so itís a pretty easy place to get to. Inside and the decor are pretty nice, as you might expect. Service was average. The house beers here are truly atrocious. Only four on tap and none of them were remotely drinkable.

Not a huge selection - 4 of their beers, and a few bottles. In the morning we were the only ones, and we got a fair exposition of what was going on. Like the tripel was not finished yet. Descriptions of the biers. In the afternoon it was busy, but we talked them into a plate that required a departure from the menu. It is a bit expensive, but the location is that. Very good atmosphere. The music started setting up as we were leaving tonight.

Strategically located right by the Brusselís Grand Place. Cold pub-chain type of atmosphere. Loud ďhipĒ music playing for the clientele consisting mainly of drunk young tourists who donít know any better than macro beers. I knew it would be bad but I canít walk in front of a brewpub and not make a pitstop no matter how bad it is. Stressed-out staff with matching shirts running all over the place to serve this rather large multi-floor pub. 3 beers on tap, all bad. Make the 3 Brasseurs pub franchise seem like beer heaven. To be avoided. But you wonít. You cannot visit Brussels Grand Place without walking in front of this place. Youíll make a pitstop too. Canít say you havenít been warned.

A dark place with the old defunct brew kettle at the entrance. The walls are dark red, dark stone floor and high dark wood panelling. The service is slow and the prices are quite high, probably because of the location, so they exploit the turists. No more of their own beers, but that is not a huge loss, since they were of poor quality as of late.

Their own four beers can be served from a sample tray with each sample containing 120ml (be sure to ask for the tray) for 8EUR. Apart from the house beers there were about 25 bottles in addition to about 6-7 draught beers listed on the menu. Friendly service when we visited the place about noon on a Saturday. Splendid location at one of the corners of the Grand-Place (visited 7th May 2011).
