With all the amazing eateries in Brussels, we ended up at this dud. We had to fuss to get a menu, fuss to have our order taken and beg to get the bill. The setting is pleasant enough, but not for the tasteless food a price tag. Skip this and eat at home.

Popped in for lunch. Nice atmosphere and pleasant service. Found the food mediocre and the prices a bit rich!

Four of us waited 10 minutes for a menu, 15 minutes to give our order. Drinks arrived. 30 minutes later one main arrived and was eaten. Spent next 20 minutes trying to get remaining 3 mains. Was shrugged at by waiter, ignored by bar lady and then ignored totally despite surrounding tables eating having arrived at least 20 minutes after... More

My husband and I were on a tour called 'Circle of Europe' and we went to Belgium finding this place for lunch which had the best mussels I have EVER had. They were tender and cooked in large pot with celery, onion and green leafy seasoning. The price was very reasonable.

Exorbitant prices for low quality watery fish soup and tasteless shrimp croquets at great entourage outside overlooking beautifull square

No doubt what it should be ordered. Leffe beer, blond, bruins and royal. The location is good and staff were friendly and polite. It's a good place for a short break during your trip.

We weren't blown away. The mussels and fries were quite good though, and sitting outside was nice, but someone in our group ordered a flavoured beer and it tasted more like a candy drink than a beer. We had to pay for it anyway, as our server refused to take it back. Stick to the traditional blond beers. Service wasn't... More

At the end of a street with a great view of the centre of the Sablon.This is a great place to sit and watch the world walk by.Also to eat and drink! Really good food and not too expensive for Brussels considering you are in a very historical place.Nice staff and wifi!

Can't fault the beer however we were under the impression the bar was associated with Caffe Leffe. Upon asking the waiter there is no association and the waiter was unsure of where Leffe is brewed. Still a nice enough cafe / bar and pleasant surroundings.

Thank rachelh5010
