We came here just especially for the drinks. The building itself has very nice interior decorations and design so it was a perfect place to sit down, relax and enjoy a pint (or two) of local Belgian beer as well as the calm and peaceful...More

I came back as I knew this was a bar and beer lovers paradise, as I first came on a Tuesday when recent events in Brussels really did dampen spirits for a while. Today is a Thursday a few months on at the end of...More

I went to the place because of its old interior and just had a drink there. Don't expect something posh, but the place had conserved its design from 1928 and it's apparently a family run business. The menu is pretty Belgian dishes based, they also...More

lovely to sit and take in the surroundings but treat it for what it is, a tourist attraction. Staff were friendly enough. As with most places in Brussels, if you are not into beer, you might struggle a bit to find a decent glas of...More

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!)

We need to go back in time for more then 100 years to explore the origin of this unusual name. About 1910 Mr. THEOPHILE VOSSEN ran an establishment called "LA COUR ROYALE". Amongst his many customers were a lot of employees working at the National...More
