Fantastic beer selection. Recommend to try the kriek (cherry) lambic, which I fell in love with. Food selection is limited, but keep in mind this is a bar at heart. Great stop when you need some mid-afternoon refreshment.

Few friends visited this place. At start it looked expensive, 11 € for 1 beer; but it was really big and strong one so it was OK

There’s a fantastic atmosphere here and a great beer list. Go easy on the large glasses as it’s potent stuff. Some snacks - from tit bits like plates of cheese and salami to croque monsieur. This is old school Belgium hospitality at its best.

It's definitely worth visiting his bar, though it can be rather crowded at times. Not the best place for a quiet drink but a good beer selection makes up for it.

La Mort Subite not only has a nice choice of local beers on offer yet it is this original Beer Hall's history and charm that really makes it a great place to enjoy a beer.

We always pick this place to meet up with friends for a late night date night. It always seems packed, but people come and go so you might have to wait 5-7 minutes to be seated. The staff may seem like they are not paying...More
