One of my favorites, to watch football or meet up. Staff hyper friendly and helpful, food reasonable (try the chicken Tikka Masala!), prices ok. All public including children which is nice to see. Arsenal supporters are particularly well treated at the bar where games are shown with sound. Otherwise great tolerance for all supporters with large screens showing multiple games.

Thank Eric B

I go here regularly for the sports but my taste is offbeat - Gaelic games, rugby and golf rather than soccer. However, staff are very accommodating and almost always tune-in a TV screen for me, directing soccer fans to the multiple other screens. I tip accordingly. Food, when I bother to eat, is good value and unpretentious. Guinness is very... More

We were looking for a sunday lunch and found this place, lovely food, good atmosphere and good service. They say on the menu Traditional Sunday Lunch, but I wouldn't class it as that, it was however very nice and didn't disappoint in taste, Roast beef with mash potato, what I would call potato dauphinoise and mixed veg ( french beans,...

Expat pubs usually have a tight bound between staff and regulars. There's always a group that becomes part of the furniture. Even so, I was surprised to see a staff member snigger along, while a regular repeatedly tried to get a rise out of some quiet sod who dropped in to watch a soccer match. Wasn't the first time either.... More

On this lively square, De Valera's provides a bit of green, and it's not just the Irish beer - you overlook the ponds of Ixelles. I did have my first Guinness in years, and it was good. And our cheeseburgers were excellent. We got in just before the live Sunday soccer on TV, so ours was a quiet lunch. I'd... More

Nice terrace with view of the weekend morning market on Place Flagey while you are having a simple lunch and a pint. With a slight view of the water of the lakes brings a refreshing extra Summer feeling to it. It is an Irish pub outside Ireland, which never really disappoints me, but never excites me. Standard beer and pub... More

First, the location: terrace, sun, a beautiful place, close to the lake, nice surroundings. After the place, yes, it's Irish... ;-) You have to go there for the atmosphere, and the burgers! Quality, freshness, great service, fair prices! And they have really good vegetarian burgers, quite rare. Oh yes, try a Snakebite... ;-)

A really good thing is that you can get food any time of the day, especially people like us need such a place. Because all of a sudden you have a hole in your body that needs to be filled fast. We did not have to wait long for our orders. My husband had a sandwich with smoked salmon and... More

What you would normally have in an Irish pub (beer) was surprisingly well accompanied by 2 excellent sides: slightly spicy wings and cheese croquetes. Both were very very good I am only giving a 4 because the waitress made a mistake with a beer that I ended up paying myself, but the overall ambiance was very good and the food... More

This pub has a nice atmosphere and a good menu. I can recommend it for lunch or to grab a bite with friends. I wouldn't go here if you are looking for a nice dinner, it's a bit loud and crowded. Still, it's a great place to enjoy a football match and some pub food.
