A wonderful restaurant/bar established in 1886. It has retained most of its original features so it's like stepping back in time. The waiters are so attentive, helpful and funny. We loved it here.

Wide range of belgian beers served in spotless, gleaming glasses and at reasonable prices!. Many of the waiters have been here for years. The food is fresh and very good value for the location.

We just stopped by for a couple of beers before dinner and were very impressed by the authentic old world charm, and even more impressed with the beer.
