The Michael Collins Irish Pub is a pub I always look forward to visiting on any holiday I take to Brussels as it's one of the best Irish pubs in this vibrant city which is high praise indeed when you consider how many Irish pubs...More

Last two times I went for a beer with a friend, it was a total disappointment. We ordered nachos with cheese both times. First one, they forgot the order. Second one, they delivered sad nachos with almost no cheese.

Nice Irish pub to have a few drinks with friends. Food quality is far from being fantastic, and definitely not cheap. Go for drinks but have food somewhere else

Great bar, friendly staff & good food! On the numerous screens they broadcast all kinds of sports. During summer there is a nice terrace. It can be pretty busy though..

A perfect lunch spot for burgers or fish and chips. Reasonably priced and consistently good. The staff is totally nice. If you don't like crowds or don't want to wait for your food, avoid times when there's a big football match on the TV.

Went here with a colleague for a Guinness. Great looking pub, pretty authentic, and with a great selection of beers. Only thing I missed was the great Irish music so I would not rate it as comparable with a true Irish one.
