"Sample Local Beers at "The King of Spain"" Food & Drink Tip by DanielF

Food & Drink, Brussels: 18 reviews and 31 photos

Finally, the last building on the Northwest wing is known as the King of Spain. The name obviously refers to the emblem of the King Charles II in its façade. It used to be the bakers' corporative house and is the only building with a dome in the square, which makes it quite noteworthy. Actually, it was significantly modified in the early XX century.

Today, the building hosts one of the most famous restaurants on the square, Au Roi d'Espagne, where beer lovers can sample local brews accompanied by uncomplicated Belgian food with an excellent perspective of the square from the upper floor.

Even myself, not appreciating beer at all, occasionally enjoy the Belgian beer ritual, where each brand comes in its particular kind of glass and only in that one.
