Launched in London in 1992, the original Belgo Covent Garden is an iconic Belgian bar and restaurant. There are seven locations these days, all of them a treat, but Belgo Centraal can be found in the heart of Covent Garden on Earlham Street. It’s one of the largest restaurants in all of London with enough space for 420 guests and a huge, glorious kitchen specialising in moules frites, rotisserie chicken and irresistible grillin’. The cherry on this very Belgian cake? More than 62 Belgian bieres to choose from, of course! Belgo Centraal in Coven Garden, London is a restaurant, heck, an institution, that is absolutely worth a reservation in advance. But, don’t just take our word for it – check out the Belgo menu for yourself below!
As one of the largest restaurants in Covent Garden and London, Belgo Covent Garden deserves to be celebrated. How large, you ask? 12,000 square foot over two separate eating halls – the first being an impressive beer hall type of set up, the second being an intimate and relaxed restaurant (in the conventional sense). The decor in both spaces is cool, contemporary and comfortable, and Belgo Centraal has two impressive vaults that can be hired for a spot of private dining as well. Whatever the occasion, this branch of Belgo London has you covered.
We don’t know if you’ve ever tried Belgian beer, but it’s probably the best in the world and at Belgo Centraal there’s over 62 variations of it. There ain’t no beer in Covent Garden like this beer, folks, and you can order a trinity of triples to get a flavour for more than one, or order by the glass if you already know which suits you. Either way, you’ll want to be pairing some food with it, and that’s where classic Belgian moules frites comes in. Hot damn, munch your moules from a bowl, plate or platter and choose flavours ranging from green Thai to traditional marinière. You can, of course, opt for burgers, rotisserie chicken, savoury waffles or other classic Belgian mains as well. Located on Covent Garden’s Earlham Street, you’d best go to Belgo armed with a reservation to avoid disappointment.
The food was excellent, as was the service. Great selection of mussels and fruit beers. The beer hall had a good atmosphere and is an interesting venue in which to dine.
Very nice place with good atmosphere, good food with excellent selection of beers , and very nice, helpful service! During lunch time no too busy.
Great varied menu. Food is hearty so perfect when it’s freezing outside. Friendly casual service.
We had really good time and meal here. Thank you.
Have enjoyed meals and the beers at Belgo-Centraal many times over the years and the food and whole experience has always been exceptional. However I was surprised on this visit that they now have television screens on in the dining room which seems completely unnecessary and distracting from the overall experience, to be honest I would much rather they weren't there. The service was also slower than we've ever had before, although our waitress was good at chasing things up. The bubble waffle desserts, although amazing had to be chased and were quite cool once served. I still enjoyed our visit immensely, and would go again and again, even more so if the tv screens were removed!
We chose calamari and grilled prawns last Monday. They were delicious. Mussels + frites were absolutely scrumptious. And bubble waffles with strawberry and tiramisu ice cream completed our lunch with great satisfaction. Lucas, our waiter from Vicenza kindly arranged a beautiful decoration with a candle on the waffles to surprise me because of my birthday. What a memorable lunch! Thank you so much for making my day. We will be back tomorrow at 1pm.
We arrived early but were still seated within 5 minutes of arrival. The food came quickly and was excellent. I had to wait a while for my first drink but the cost was then removed from the bill which I thought was fantastic. Will definitely return!
Food always good here. Value for money. Service also good. Music is a bit loud so hard to talk and hear over dinner. We often take out of town friends and family here.
A good solid Belgo experience. Good simple food, reliable in quality & presentation. Belgian beer selection great. Service not as good as usual Overall good pre-theatre experience
Great food. Friendly staff and quick. Very busy restaurant. But only thing that drags down the rate :lavatory (need a new look for that, restaurant with that size and style it's poor)
