Very good but not THE BEST spot. Fish stew was good. Definitely a good beer selection. You'll likely enjoy it but would be perfectly fine skipping it on a trip to Brussels.

This place has a huge collection of beers for sale but don't bother. The beer menu is just there to taunt you as you won't get to taste them. The waiter/ barman can't be bothered to serve you even if you ask politely. We didn't go there for the food but even with low expectations it was a huge disappointment.... More

Visited here having read excellent reviews but extremely disappointed. There was only one guy serving and he clearly decided he didn't want to serve us! When we finally received our food order it was lukewarm and our request to order more beers was dismissed saying he'd come back in a couple of minutes. Despite serving people on several adjoining tables... More

.. of the Brussels beer scene. Food is generously portioned (and the meatloaf well-recommended). Although, the bar is split into two parts with one smaller side serving only beer, you can go into the larger, more airy left side to simply enjoy their great beer list.

The selection of beers is out of this world - this also means that you can select both fantastic beers but also some that you dislike ;-) the choice is yours.. we found some really rare abbey ales. Absolutely 5 stars for the variety. The food is nice, ordenary, no nonsense food. Taste good. A place to visit if you... More

A short walk from the grand place, this restaurant has a fantastic beer menu and food to match. The owner speaks good English and is friendly and welcoming. Food is home cooked, tasty with good portion sizes. Definitely worth a visit!

We are really dissatisfied with the service. We wanted to get sime fries with our round of beers and the elf-like looking bartender said we can only get fries if we order a main dish... absurd!

Went here for a quick bite in the evening. Spaghetti was allright, the normal portion was very sufficient. Can't imagine how large is the large portion :) I'll try the meatloafs next time. They have nice selection of beers. Nothing groundbreaking, for Brussles, but there should be something for everyone. Waiter spoke good English, could recommend a beer and was... More

Having also visited Beer Circus previously, my fiancée and I decided to drop in for dinner on a Friday night. On the food menu you will find a handful of tasty homemade dishes, and they have a rather good selection of beers – albeit there are a few ones lacking that I would have loved to see on the menu....
