Ate here 5th April. Very busy. Noisy. Expensive, but no more expensive than is normal in Brussels. Service a bit slow. Drink arrived quickly, but they were slow to take my order for food and slow to deliver it. Burger was tasty but a little greasy Chips were salty and a bit dried out. As pub grub goes, it wasn't...

I had chicken liver and it was very good although not easy to digest. Salmon is not really special but my friend got pig belly and it was also very good and tasty. I recommend to go if you like this specific type of food

Place is a mixture of a restaurant, pub, terrace for smokers. You need to know in advance when there are the peak hours for lunch and early evening meals. Restaurant is convenient for quick lunch with simple food as soup, some stew and other offers of the day. It is beer paradise. Place is decorated all around and you can... More

The pub is located very close to Maelbeek metro station. One part is like a bar whereas the other side looks more like a restaurant. The food is suitable for lunch and dinner. The menu offers many different things from soup to fish to meat. One of these dishes is always dish of the day and cheaper. Last time we... More

We were a larger group of acquaintances (10+) and we sat outside on the terrace. Menu offers quite a few standard pub-y snacks / food. I had a "tarte-flambee" and I was not disappointed. The place is very spacious and neat, highly suitable for meeting friends or a having an informal business meeting.

I've visited here a couple of times recently, once for lunch and once for dinner. For lunch I had a Shepherd's Pie, which was really delicious. It was a cold day and this meal was just exactly what I was looking for. On my next visit, this time for dinner, I had the burger. This was no more than okay.... More

So angry and disappointed! I never been treated with such a disrespect by anyone so far even if we are talking about a pub and you don't except a "fine dining service".
