|Excellent session here with a fellow BITE reviewer. We began our crawl here for the food. Two of us had the CHI-MAY-charged spag bol, and one had steak tartare (prepared with ten seasonings and topped with a raw eggyolk). Just don't ask who had what! Good beer range again; BINK great as usual and "BRAVOURE" was a lovely hoppy/spicy/smoky beer. Prices were average for the food, but the beer wasn't that cheap.|
Live music began around 8pm. Cannot say whether this is Bire Circus' regular music style but two ladies with rather good French singing voices performed some tuneful, if rather "samey" ballads accompanied by electric piano. Nice in small doses but the doses weren't small!
My fellow BITE reviewer and his wife were otherwise impressed with the place (or at least said they were - wait for the review!) and would go again. Was certainly as good a start as any to a crawl in Brussels. And definitely a pub to start, rather than finish, a crawl.

|Compared with the old premises this new bar lacks atmosphere, but the beer list is still excellent. Worth noting that there are some very reasonable restaurants around the corner.|

|This was my first visit and it will not be my last. I was so happy I left a tip, something that I never ever do. The stouts are certainly worth trying....and the food was exemplary, not too filling but just right. Its about 20 minutes walk from the City or 5 minutes walk from Parc metro. Honestly, go. I will when I go back to Belgium again.|

|Paid pilgrimage to this establishment on 13 Feb. Following on from my excellent introduction to the pub in 2006, I was not let down in any way.|
In the background there was a good mix of 1960s to 1980s music, and this time I sat in the more spacious dining area.
Being on a crawl, I just had two beers here, namely BINK still the same as three years back; and Brouwerij den Hopperd KAMELEON GINSENG, 6%. Tastewise there were delicate ginseng, licquorice and cinnamon notes in equal measure competing for tongue space. Would make a good dessert beer, but the sweetness was not overwhelming giving it broader appeal.
Delicious food again. It was difficult to resist their house pasta, but sheer portion size ruled out two courses!
For Valentine's they had a fir tree normally used in December decorated with lights and red hearts, and one or two couples were indeed having a Valentine's meal here.
Note the window displays featuring Tintin amongst others, and a pillar decorated entirely with beer bottle lids.

|Not fettered by knowing this restaurant as a cafe or bar I can only comment as a restaurant - that's what it is. A food place with a crackin' beer menu!|
Was there last weekend and I think it smacked yellow off Delerium's teeth! But then that's comparing Gueuze with a Kriek. Had beautiful beers to accompany a perfect Chateaubriand. Oude Kirk Kriek De Cam, sour enough to burn through your tum yum yum.
