Too bad the staff was not friendly. The building is very nice. However, the prices are ridiculous. Much better authentic bars can be found in Brussels. Don't forget, the prices included a (hefty) 16% service charge. (very uncommon for Belgium!)

Very Belgian but touristy. Only sell beer, no G&T. Staff were as described in one of the guide books as 'brusque' but that was ok.

You can't go to Brussels without stopping at this pilar of Brussels. Old style typical brasserie where you can enjoy a Belgian beer and have some food. Good break in a day of visits

really nice and must visit cafe. Interior hassn't changed since. Only downside is the price of a beer, which can be quite expensive, but worth the experience if you ask me.

Well worth a visit. Try the beers - especially gueuze. Historic Brussels café with touches of art nouveau. Calm and with no muzak. The food menu is rather basic - just nip down to the nearby Place de la Monnaie and enjoy a sachet of...More

Good range of beers, rather on the expensive side however. Avoid the food as the tartine we ordered was basic at best. Nevertheless, wonderful beer and lovely atmosphere.

Fantastic beers, a little bit more expensive but worth it to sit in an olde worlde type pub and watch the World go by! A must visit bar!

Good range of beers and atmosphere although the service can be a bit slow as the waiters spend time preening themselves. Very close the Royal Galleries and Grand Place
