I have reviewed this old café already...and come back to it when in BXL for the same reasons, which are not their wine list or gastronomic excellence. Warmth, authenticity, history ( an old haunt of Belgian Surrealist artists) and a irrepressible charm you just cannot...More

Caught in a time warp, this place reeks of history. A charming, small-ish bar whose walls are stained from years past of smoking. Great to drop in and chill out. Try their draft kriek !

This was a really nice bar. We went in the afternoon so it wasn't too busy. There was an impressive range of beers, and they served hot drinks too. A nice environment with historical significance

The food is nice! Better than that is beer selection. It is nice place to chill with friends and have drink. Ask the bar tender for beer suggestion . They know their beer!

This is an atmospheric old bar, with lots of interesting bits of memorabilia on the walls. Good beers on draught including de la Senne. The Brussels surrealists purportedly drank here. They did at least once- there is a photograph to prove it.

We went here on our last day in Brussels. A tour guide recommended it. The bar itself is very nice, decorated with old photographs. When we ordered our drinks the waiter gave us good recommendations and let us taste a few options first. The food...More

Simple but very good. Typical local food. Example: Spaghetti, stoemp, Vol-au-Vent, Ballekes in tomatensaus, pottekeis en bloempanch... Drinks: several good beers, ask them for advice..
