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.

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.

Oh lordy. What a place. Actually the place itself isnít that bad and the server wasnít that bad even though we were ragging on his beer pretty harshly. Itís right in the Grote Markt so itís kind of a no brainer to stop in at the brewery in the middle of the scenic old buildings but seriously the beer was god awful. Writing this rating is bringing back painful memories. We sat at a long table near the door and actually got half way decent service, a surprise for a Belgian stop. We ordered all the house beer which was luckily only four beers and there were conveniently four of us. Most of my time was spent laughing at our unfortunate situation. We only stuck around long enough to try all the beers and left for greener pastures. If they have good guest beers I could be convinced to come back. Until such a time Iíll continue to laugh at the fact that this is in my 10 worst breweries of all time list.

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.

(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.

Only for tickers. The beers suck (one is as muddy as glue), the ambiance is fake, only good points are the 2 nice Belgian girls sitting in the corner...

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.

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.
