Experience was let down by poor service. Waitress didn't have English as a first language and struggled to communicate in what is a noisy, busy environment. Consequently she got the order wrong and then proceeded to argue with us over this. Food we did get was fine however. Duty manager recognised that we'd had poor service and gave us a... More

I've been here a few times now, I'm never disappointed. The food is great, the service is great and the beer list......wowsers!! Although mussels are by far the main event, all the food is delicious including pork belly, lobster, cod loin etc. Does get very busy and noisy at peak times, and the seating is long benches so be prepared...

I booked the restaurant for 10 work colleagues and have to say the whole experience was great. The online ordering system was well put together and easy to use, with each person being able to place their own orders and keep track of costs. They were also able to pay their own deposits. Upon arrival each place had a card... More

Food was average. Not a lot of flavour. Shared starters were pretty much thrown at the table. No explanation of what they were. Staff very uninterested. Would not recommend.

I was invited in that place because I am Belgian but this was not a good idea. The food is so so and they invent "Belgian dishes that are not at all Belgian like the 'vol au vent' Don't take the vol au vent because it is not at all like we make it in Belgium. The rest is probably... More

Until today, Belgo Central was one of my favourite places in London. In the past, I had enjoyed a high standard of food and beer, great service, a comforting atmosphere, and was made to feel welcome. Today, it felt like I was at a different place entirely and had wasted my time. Things started off with the more quaint bar... More

Very cozy, staff were polite and quick to attend when called! We all enjoy the food most especially the 'mango' flavoured beer. Will recommend and definitely come back again! The only criticism for me was the combined male/ female toilet; I don't feel comfortable being on it at all!!!

I remember visiting Belgo during my university years - it was our favorite place to hang out during weekends for lunch dinner and social gathering before going dancing in heaven. It's been 10 years since I graduated and now working abroad. Recently had the chance to re-visit Belgo during our holiday back in London - it is not the same... More

Description
Set in a former warehouse in Covent Garden, Belgo Centraal's staircase descends into a Beer Hall with long refectory tables waited on by staff in Trappist monk outfits and head sets. But this is no silent order; it's bustling and noisy with many customers tucking into steaming bowls of mussels in a variety of broths and platters. There are also two main dining rooms and a selection of more intimate dining booths. Seeking something substantial? The stews include Moules Blanches cooked in Bruges beer with smoked bacon, all served with frites. From the Rotisserie, choose from beer basted spit roast Belgian chicken or duck, or peruse the extensive main menu which includes the veggie-friendly Artichoke stuffed with Wild Mushrooms, Asparagus and Pine Nuts. Of course, there are over 50 Belgian beers to taste, including Fruit Beers in varieties such as cherry or banana!
