Went to have some drinks. Waiter was very rude it was obvious he didn’t want to serve us. We had been in some lovely bars and restaurants during our stay. Don’t waste your time coming here as there are plenty of other places.

Belgium is an interesting country. Some bars are open at 7 a.m. while many bakeries open at 11 a.m. So, drinking is a genuine way to spend time in the country. The first time I sat at a table outside Drug Opera, I never got...More
