A truly wonderfull, historical place. This is where the brand of ’Mort subite’ came to be. It’s sad how it develloped though. A very, very commercial pub with rediculous pricings ( a 25 cl bottle of chemical sweetened ’fruit’lambic for about 4 euro’s ??? The service is OK. The beerlist contain a faro - unbottled and exclusively for here. I can only imagine this as a reason to visit this pub. once.

A café with traditional interieur, but it’s huge, crowded and loud. The beerlist is standard for Belgium, and they serve their own standard Lambics which are, by comparison, a bit weak (and very expensive). Service is surprisingly fast for being this crowded. Definitely a sympathetic place, but not really worth going out your way for.
The service was by a real ’Brusseleir’, which was a nice extra. This place caries a lot of history which is probably the only reason (and the Brussels Waiter) why one should visit this.
The selection is rather limited, and the prices are rather high. Yet we sat there several hours.
Worth a visit not so much for the beer selection, but for the ambiance and history with the old interior that hasn’t seen much change in many years. Attentive and efficient service, prices in the higher end, centrally located. Vistied at a Monday afternoon, so it was not very busy at the time.
Visited a couple times while in Brussels. Beer selection is limited (obviously) but the atmosphere is great - like a trip back in time. Not a great beer/tick stop but I think it was worth it for the history.
