There's more to this Belgian restaurant and bar than just mussels, even if the pots, platters and bowls of moules are what this long-standing chain is probably best known for. There are more than 52 Belgian beers on offer for starters, and a food menu that ranges from rotisserie-roasted chickens to burgers, steaks, short ribs of beef and crispy bellies of pork.

This Covent Garden branch - the group's second of four in London - has been going for nearly 20 years. It's a huge space, with two separate rooms (a dining room and a beer hall) set over 12,000 square feet between Shelton Street and Earlham Street, just down from Seven Dials. 

Many visit for the mussels, and there's a range of different dishes on offer, from the 'traditionelle' cooked in a white wine, celery, garlic and onion broth to the Thai (lemongrass, chilli, ginger, kaffir lime, coconut and coriander) and the 'Monroe', cooked in Leffe Blonde beer with pancetta and shallots. Keep an eye out for express lunches, too.

A perfect manifestation of Belgian cuisine in the heart of London. Very good for large groups.

Had a cracking lunch at Belgo's today. I would recomend for lunch and an evening out- in fact I'm planning my next visit with friends for a night out- food followed by drinks at the bar :)

Brilliant for parties and perfectly located right in the middle of Covent Garden, it's the perfect place to enjoy proper Belgian beer and excellent food!

Just had a tasty lunch here - food and service were great. The venue is really fun - good place to go with a group of friends. The seating could be a little more comfortable, but we were there for 2 hours...

Really friendly service and delicious food. Great for a group meal out if you're looking for some hearty food right in the heart of Seven Dials.


usually with meals that have mussels, they are small, and a pain as yous spend all that effort getting they out, not so here, the mussels must of been the biggest, I have had, and so tasty! Especially with the belgium beer, highly recommended!!

Great location for a big group, but equally good fit for a relaxed date night.  The venue is huge and really different - it's like entering a beer factory.  My other half loved the selection of beers, and I really like the different options of mussel bowls.

I know this place is famous for mussels but I have always been a massive fan of the half chicken.. But to be fair I do tend to have mussels to start if I am having 2 courses. Had not been in a while and forgot how lovely the food was. Will be heading back sooner next time.  


Always great food whenever I eat here, friendly staff, and remarkable cheap for the quality! Huge selection of beer is a massive bonus. Highly recommended!
