About five - ten years ago we came here loads. The place was rammed, so much atmosphere and there was a queue out the door. The food was bang on and we loved it. Last night I left feeling a little sad for Belgo. The...More

My friend wanted to come here. Since I’m a London novice and he usually comes up trumps with restaurants I went along. A bit wasted on me as the main pull is the muscle dishes and Belgian beer. I like neither muscles or beer. They...More

I love the atmosphere and ambience of this place! Our waiter Sebastian looked after us all night making sure our cocktails were always topped up! Food is delicious, go for the traditional mussles- a win every time!

A quirky Belgium treat. Where you can delight in fries, beers and muscles galore. The venue has many quirky options for seating as its all underground and the food is fab

I thought it worth giving Belgo one last chance: wrong decision - adequate service, but noisy (do we really need the TV screens advertising the menu??) and really dismal food. Not in the mood for mussles (my mistake, I suppose) I opted for a venison...More

I had lunch at Belgo Central for the first time. The Mussels Mariniere I had were decent but not great. The portion of the mussels themselves was generous and were very tender. The flavour, however, was very bland and largely absent. The Belgian style "frites"...More

Slow service, staff were not very attentive and the menus had wrong prices of drinks which we did point out and we were then informed they weren’t available. The food was very overpriced for the standard. I will not be visiting this restaurant again.

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!
