Belgian Beer Cafe, Harrington St, Sydney


Belgian Beer Cafe, Harrington St, Sydney
Tuesday 20 December, 2005

Lunchtime at the Belgian Bier Cafe is packed - for such a large space this place is full to the brim with city workers - where have they all come from? Probably Grosvenor Place across the road....

It's a fantastic old building and they have kept the beauty & charm of the historical building and matched it with a funky interior showcasing natural light, exposed beams and stained glass windows with a variety of beer logos.

The staff are friendly and efficient (we had a gorgeous Belgian waiter) and the menu is extensive - as a suggestion check out the menu online before you go, it is detailed, enticing and takes a while to get through. This will enable you to enjoy lunch and not feel rushed as you spent 20 minutes reading the menu and discussing the options with your friends.

The house specialty is mussels but today I ordered the steak frite with chips & salad. What a serious disappointment. I requested medium rare and it tasted well done. We also ordered a side of garlic bread and it was the chewiest bread I have ever eaten - stale??

Stick to the house specialty and you won't be disappointed.

Just had a VERY quick look at your blog and the review on the Belgian Beer Café. Couldn’t agree more! Great ambience, great selection, disappointing food! At least the company was first class. I’m looking forward to reading more of your reviews during the Christmas break.
