Brasserie plus ou moins branchée du haut de Bruxelles. Carte des bières assez moyenne mais il y a souvent des découvertes en suggestion. Endroit très bruyant.

I came here a few times because the quality of the food here is great considering the price. And maybe also because I was staying at a hotel in Ixelles, which made it a very short walk away. The beer selection is average, but big enough to have found something new to try every day that I stopped by. The atmosphere of the place was warm and relatively spacious considering the number of people coming in to eat, but the smoke from the smoking-lounge kind of seeps in to the whole restaurant. The service was also a bit of an anomaly. I speak French but choose not to when I’m in company of others who don’t, but the waitress who served us every time that we stopped by would not speak to us in any other language than French, even though the others in my party made it clear every time that they could not understand her. It was sort of funny, but I could imagine being really frustrated in most other circumstances. If I were in Flanders, for example, I would have had to just leave if somebody could only communicate to me in Flemish!

Hit this place after a Sunday morning of market stall and antique shop staring, we’d walked miles and were getting thirsty: our mission was to ’do’ Ixelles during the afternoon, from here it was a further walk down to Cafe Belga before finding Les Brassins for our evening meal. sadly Beermania doesn’t open on Sundays or we could have done four places.
This bar close to St Boniface Church is an open plan, very plain almost boring place to look at, both inside and out. Cafe style in layout, decor and furnishings as basic as they come. My wife didn’t like it at all.
The service was friendly and the joint was slowly filling up with families having Sunday lunch outings. I had their last bottle of ’De Konnick’ and the wife a ’Palm’. Well behaved children now seemed to be the main customers, sat with their casually dressed young parents. We had eaten at a stall a little earlier, so didn’t eat anything here. What food we saw however, looked good.
The beer list wasn’t very interesting and although the bar is obviously popular with locals it isn’t the sort of place a ’beerhunter’ would find inspiring enough to stay long, so we left.
Other reviewers have stated how large the beerlist was, we were given a pretty large menu, but with very few beers on it. Having been given the last bottle of De Konnick might be an indication the beers aren’t so important here any more

This place is located in the middle of the African part of the city. I must have just missed BelgaBart or maybe we were both there and did not know it. Anyway the place itself is not bad. A little run down but ok. Beer selection outside of Belgium would be sought after but in the city there are much better places. I can say for Brussels it was cheap. Ok if your in that area of town but don’t seek it out.

Beer selection is good.
Employee training is not so good.

Hip and popular brasserie on a nice square in the EU area. Enjoyed two new beers there today on a terrace. Well done.

A very nice and fun brassery type of place, nice beer list, and some of the special of the month. Good food and good value. Nice staff, cute girls.

A fun neighborhood, interesting people-watching in St. Boniface square. Short walk from BeerMania. The beer list has a few surprises and plenty of quality. There’s several De Dolle, and some Dupont and St. Feuillien here, among others. A few lambics, but no serious ones listed on the menu. Lots of tables outside on the sidewalk. I’ve had an excellent meal here and a poor one--but the frites were solid and helped to make up for it. Come here if you’re tasting at BeerMania and need some supper with a solid beer list.
