The Belgium Beer Cafe: "Lively Belgium Beer Cafe" Rocks and Circular Quay Restaurants Tip by dustyelisa

The Belgium Beer Cafe, located near The Rocks area is a popular bar and excellent restaurant. I went there with work colleagues on Tuesday night before Anzac Holiday. It was much like a weekend night as the bar was 4 deep and tables were full the entire night. The vibe was great, but it did make it difficult to hear conversation from our entire group of 6. This is not the place for a quiet meal.

The food is excellent; their specialties include the mussels - which are fabulous. The chips, perfectly crispy, are served non-stop from the kitchen with the typical Belgium mayonnaise. I had the kangaroo - grilled to the recommended medium rare with a lovely sauce. The potatoes and vegetables served along side were flat and uneventful.

The service was extremely slow for beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). The waiter apologized several times due to the slow service from the bar - as it was incredibly busy. But still, we went thirsty at various times throughout the evening. I was delighted that our waiter completed the Belgium experience with his cheeky comments delivered with that uniquely Belgium way.
