Belgo Centraal

A wonderful (and cheap) Belgian restaurant in London's Covent Garden

This bastion of Belgian beer and bangers is one of the best dining deals in London. You take an ultra-slow freight elevator down one short level to emerge into a warren of rooms filled with long wooden benches and tables. The waiters are dressed a bit like ersatz monks. The Belgian-style cuisine—pots of mussels, wild boar sausages served with mashed potatoes, roast chickens—is excellently-prepared, and the beer flows freely. They have several bargain meals, including the £6.50 lunch special (noon to 5:30pm), and "Beat the Clock" (from 5–6:30pm, you pay whatever time the clock shows when you order)—plus kids under 12 eat free.
