Set in a former warehouse in Covent Garden, Belgo Centraal's staircase descends into a Beer Hall with long refectory tables waited on by staff in Trappist monk outfits and head sets. But this is no silent order; it's bustling and noisy with many customers tucking into steaming bowls of mussels in a variety of broths and platters. There are also two main dining rooms and a selection of more intimate dining booths. Seeking something substantial? The stews include Moules Blanches cooked in Bruges beer with smoked bacon, all served with frites. From the Rotisserie, choose from beer basted spit roast Belgian chicken or duck, or peruse the extensive main menu which includes the veggie-friendly Artichoke stuffed with Wild Mushrooms, Asparagus and Pine Nuts. Of course, there are over 50 Belgian beers to taste, including Fruit Beers in varieties such as cherry or banana!

My sister and I happened to be in London one weekend and I had asked friends in advance for something near the Lyric Theatre to eat at that was decent. Belgo was suggested so we decided to give it a go!

Sorry Belgo II'll give you 2 stars as at the end, the only thing really tasty I had was the beer.
Dinner for 2 during the week: this place could be interesting if you are large group of friends but for a couple could be too noisy (the open kitchen add another layer of noise on top of the one coming from the big tables around you)
Menù is not so big which is good but what you'll get is an...more
We really wanted to like this place. We basically had dessert for dinner, and the waffles we got were good, but not extravagantly so. My wife is Belgian and we love Belgian food, but man... the service was so slow as to really put us out. We know that American and European standards for restaurant service are a little different, and we're not insulted by needing to ask for the check or...more
Was convinced to return here by a friend. She insisted they had the best lobster ever.
They don't. And I've previously written about the chicken.
Instead you pay £28 for a smaller lobster than you can get at Big Easy for £20.
But wait! They have a special lobster festival menu, where you can order a SMALLER one for £35 that's a whole lobster that somehow has no claws! And is closer to the...more
This place was really cool.
I took the wife and two young kids. Everyone was super nice and accommodating with the children. We ordered two pots of mussels to share -- the garlic and herb one and the tradittionale one. Both were really yummy, but could have been just a little bit better. It's like the smallest something was missing that I just can't put my finger on.
We got frites as the...more
