A pleasant, casual place that has been owned by the same family for years! It's a nice place for a drink or a snack, just to sit back and watch the crowd. We visit this place every time we are in Brussels!

We loved our visit to A La Mort Subite. As you enter, you can feel the history of all of the visitors. I really liked the atmosphere and loved our beers. My favorite was the Pecheresse, a delicious Peach Lambic.

Lots of beers to choose from, friendly staff and a lovely venue. If you visit, try the peach beer they have on draught - it's very tasty.
