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.
Classic French restaurant interior and matching service. So perhaps a bit stiff, but correct and speedy. Beers tapped very well, I have to note, full glasses. Limited selection for sure, but a freshly tapped geuze tasted surprisingly well! Prices are a high, the geuze (big glass, I admit) was 5,80... Nice bar though, liked it much better than expected.

A beautiful interior that’s alone makes it worth the visit. Unfortunately the beer available is Mort Subite, and what’s more they have very few of them.
Visited in 2009 and 2010 during a Brussels trip. This place near to La Galerie du Roi is a classic bar with an early 1900 style inside with nice big mirrors on wall and nice woody seats around the place. Very spectacular place. The service is nice and good, very efficient. About the selection except the Mort Subite Gueuze other standard belgium beer.. Not very interesing. Go there for the ambiance and the decoration not for the beer.
A bit brisk, foody, brown cafe, lots of widely available beers but a few interesting choices. Worth a visit for the history of the place. Took a while for waiting staff to acknowledge we’d arrived and serve us. And pricier than some.
