Nice restaurant, but do not go there as a beer geek. They make two of the dishes with lambic beer, but thatís the only beerlink they have. When asked to recommend a beer for the food, they totally missed. People going there for wine seemed to have a good time and they seemed to know their wines. It was even decanted at the table. Nice place for a good quiet dinner, but have nothing to do on Ratebeer.

As already mentioned here, this is not a beer focused restaurant, but the food is great and they really know how to use beer integrated in the cooking. We were a large group going for a five dishes menu that where recommend as the brewers menu. I find it fascinating to see a restaurant mix both beer and wine in a natural uncompromising way to find the best combination to go together with the food. Recommended if you go for a great food experience and not beer ticking.

The food here is excellent. Iíve been only once but had the rabbit, which was prepared maybe better than any other I have ever had. I had dinner here over the winter holidays and couldnít have imagined a better place. The only complaint I have as regards the service is that it is impossible to make a reservation without showing up in person. I tried calling to make a reservation three days in a row at different times and nobody ever picked up the phone, so I finally went in shortly after 14:00 hoping to be seated for lunch and was told that the kitchen had closed and that I would have to make a reservation for dinner later! Anyway, seeing as this is ratebeer I should say that I am a little disappointed in the beer selection. There were maybe 2 or three things on tap and 5-7 bottles, of which only half of them were still available. I would definitely come here for the food, but not for the beer.

Slightly off the busiest shopping streets in the old part of Brussels, youíll find this wonderful restaurant where the beer at least have the same status as wine, both in food and to food. The restaurant is full of traditions with a great and historic interiors, and food is alike. Service is at the top and treats and serves beer as the finest wine. The beer menu is probably not Brusselsí largest, but is very careful picked from Belgiumís best. Prices of food and drink is naturally a bit higher than average for a place like this, but definitely worth it if you love both good beer and food, and it can be nice to leave the sweat pants at home. The room is not very big, so it may be wise to book in advance.

Elegant yet quite cosy little restaurant with a small but well-chosen beer list. Service is very attentive but never intrusive; the chef was welcoming us, applauding my choice of Cantillion Kriek together with the Veal Cheek (braised in the same beverage), and saying goodbye. Excellent food, slightly pricey perhaps.

Chic restaurant with a short list of well-chosen beers from local breweries (de La Senne, Cantillon and the like). Beautiful classy interior and extremely professional service makes this place quite formal. Dress accordingly! Food-wise, the lunch menu was not flawless: there was a lack of seasonning and green vegetables were way overcooked. Maybe I had too high expectations based on the previous ratings and the high price. Overall I must say I liked the experience, but not enough to give it a perfect score.

Un grand moment de table, un resto gastro avec une peite selection mais chaque mieux vaut avoir 10 bieres au top que 100 mauvaise. Conseille par cantillon les joues de veau a la kriek sont a tomber. Dirk myny est vraiment un chef hors norme.

This is not a beer focused restaurant so why did I review it? It came recommended to us by the brewers at de la Senne and cantillon as the best food in Bruxxelles by a chef that loves and cooks with beers like Cantillon. Their beer list is small but exceptionally well chosen. The veal cheek braised in cantillon kriek may be the best thing Iíve ever eaten.
The service was attentive but English is not well spoken here and itís obvious this is a locals in the know place. After talking with the chef it is obvious that he loves beer, especially the lambics and gueuzes that populate his beer and food menu. The chefs loves beer and loves to cook with it but you wonít find specific pairing menus like you do at Hummelhoff in Watou or Den Djver in Brugges. It is not a restaurant for American hopheads or
people looking for a Delirium cafe size menu but it undoubtedly the best
combination of exceptional beer and food
we had in Belgium.
