Excellent beer with super atmosphere. The food was good with fair price and perfect waiters. Thursday after works Party the huge opportunity to meet people. Everything flows to and around the Place du Luxembourg.

Did I write no romance? Well, if you like a great selection of beers and a good steak with your lover, this is your place. It's a bit loud, but the beers and the food make you feel like you're in a Belgian paradise. Or at home.

There are pubs that are inviting you to stay. It was not the case with this one. It was a bit crowded, not just because I visited immediately after office hours, but because the space was used at maximum. If walking between tables (to toilet, or going out to smoke) you definitely had to ask one or two persons to... More

My boyfriend and I visited here to end our trip to Brussels. We only stopped for drinks, so can't comment on the food, but from what I saw, it looked lovely. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the price was very reasonable. The atmosphere was great as well. Would definitely recommend.

Really. The restaurants around Ixelles had limited kitchen, it was a rainy day but I kept on going a little bit more. Well worth it I tell you. Garlick/parsley prawn was a good start. I detoured back to Ireland for a medium/rare steak w. creamy green pepper sauce afterwards, bit rare to my taste but its really nice indeed. Topped... More

Went here with a group of hungry, thirsty friends. Solid decent food and drink, nothing special but good enough for the purpose. Staff can be grumpy when the place is full and busy.
