If you have room you should try one of their scrummy desserts featuring Brussels style waffle with vanilla ice-cream, Chantilly cream and a choice of warm white or dark chocolate sauce.

The waiters, dressed as monks, are always willing to guide guests through the vast array of varying Belgian white, dark and fruit beers that are on offer to complement your meal. Belgian food tends to concentrate on leeks, asparagus, potatoes, beetroot, carrots, fennel; onion, celery, thyme, chives, rosemary, turnips, radish, beef, chicken, fish, butter and cream. From this by and large pretty healthy selection by most standards, they produce such classic Belgian dishes as waterzooi and carbonnade.

Do keep an eye out for their special deals, such as the famous 'Beat the Clock', where you pay the price at the time shown on your food order when ordering from their BTC menu, i.e., 6pm is £6. Express Lunch is a set lunch menu for £9.50, served with a choice of Cristal lager, a glass of house wine or a soft drink.

They also have 'Kids Eat Free', which entitles one child to eat free from the 'mini menu', a 2-course meal served with frites or mash, that includes such dishes as rotisserie chicken, pork or leek sausages, or cod goujons, rounded off with Belgo's homemade ice-cream, per one adult ordering a main course from the à la carte menu.

With two seating areas to choose from, firstly their dining area, where reservations can be made, or dine in the more relaxed beer hall area, with bench style seating,  where reservations are not required, this is definitely a unique dining experience. They can also cater for private parties from approximately 50 to 250 guests.

And talking of guests, read on: 'excellent evening! The waiters were very entertaining and so, so knowledgeable about all those different beers'.

'We had a fantastic time, great food and the kids really loved it! The waiter brought them to see the kitchen and gave them a chef's hat. All that and the kids ate for free'.

REVIEWS OF Belgo - Centraal

Margot (3 October 2011)

We went 4 friends to Belgo last weekend (from Spain!) to celebrate one of us' birthday. lunch was nice, beers were delicious and our waiter really a cool guy. Had a lot of fun there!

Cat (29 August 2008)

We went to Belgo Centraal on a visit to London with our ten year old. It is a really interesting restaurant and we all enjoyed our meal tremendously. He had the giant prawns in chilli and garlic and I had the mussels in a green Thai curry broth. Both were delicious, the curry broth didn't overpower the mussels and the dishes were very generous for starters. Children eat for free if the adults order from the a la carte; my son ordered the rotisserie chicken and gave it a big 'thumbs up'. It's great to have a kids menu with real food on it. My main was duck in chilli and ginger, which was very tasty but a bit sweet. He had the rib eye steak, which he pronounced one of the best he'd ever eaten, praise indeed. Puddings rely heavily on chocolate and ice cream, and were good, if not particularly memorable. The total bill was £63 and we were happy to pay the suggested gratuity as the service had been excellent. All in all, a first class experience and we'll be back another day.
