Reviewed 14 October 2017

This bar should be part of Brussels' 20th Century History. When you walk in you are faced with a long hall of a room filled with narrow tables. The decor is, as the menu explains, original 1928. There is only table service by mature staff in very traditional waiting attire. The service is professional and knowledgeable. The straight forward beer selection has some not readily found elsewhere. The food is traditional. over a couple of visits I had a very nice cheese omelette and a local brawn type cooked meat, which was also very nice.
It is different, other worldly and well worth a visit

In Brussels it is must to go after dinner to Mort Subite to take one for the road. Atmosphere is great as well as Belgium beers.

Waitress was so impatient she walked away three times while we were placing our order ... clicking her biro while we forced her to stand still for ooh... at least 20 seconds. We'd already waited 10 minutes for anyone to look as if they might be interested in serving us and, had to fetch a menu from another table. They were only averagely busy (about half the tables empty). No fun.

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.
