Belgo offers one of the largest selections of Belgian beers in the UK, and we decided, based on the waiter's suggestions, to have Maes and DeKonick. With the beers, we were given complimentary rye bread with mayonnaise. I enjoyed a light lunch of goat cheese croquettes with salad and a side of heavenly mashed potatoes. Leo ate a steak and fries with a garnish salad. We shared a delicious Brussels-style waffle with cream and ice cream for dessert. We enjoyed all of this for less than £30! Many of our neighboring tables dove into the kilo buckets of mussels with fries and mayonnaise.
We arrived around noon and noted that by 12:30pm, the place was brimming with Londoners and tourists alike. Since Belgo is not a secret given its bargain prices for first-rate food, I suggest you get there early if you'd like to avoid the rush. They offer lunch specials and a "beat the clock" evening menu of three main course choices with a drink where the amount you pay depends on when you place your order -- order at 6:00pm and you pay £6.
If you really enjoy the place and are in town for a more than a few days, you can make use of their Loyalty Card where four Belgo meal stamps gets you a complimentary fifth lunch.

The "beat the clock" deal is the reason to come here. This is how it works: if you order one of three set meals (roast chicken, grilled sausages, or steamed mussles and fries, all including a glass of beer, wine, or soda) early in the evening (call Belgo for the exact hours) you pay the time - so if you order at 5:30, you pay five pounds, 30 p for your dinner.
The food is actually quite tasty (I can vouch for the mussles), and the place itself is an experience - the waiters wear brown monk's robes, and the decor is techno-warehouse.
