Finally I made it to this place! Heard lots about it, unfortunatly, most of the epic stories were stories from a long time ago. The lambiek and faro on draught is gone by example. Beer list is ok, but nothing spectacular. Food though was really really good. Had the rabbit in geuze sauce, and I must say, it was very well cooked! The home made fries were splendid! So: recommended if you want some good decent Flemish food, but dont go there for the beer/lambiek...

Impressive beer list, too bad they are always conviniently out of the good bottles, but have plenty of the HOUSE beer.
Food was good, but not great.
Service was awful.

Very cozy old restaurant. Excellent food (I had the lapin a la gueuze), beer so-so but not bad. Come here for the eating and reserve a table in advance!

A fantastic and traditional restaurant located in a quiet street area. The food is great and the portions are big, and the beermeny is the same. Many of the dishes are even cooked with beer. When sitting inside is like going back in time with the traditional looking interior. A must visit when in Brussels and youre up for some old traditional restaurant experience. Its anyway worth a visit for the beer meny alone.

A short-walk from Fontainas lies this spectacularly old restaurant, the kind of which where many things are too small for modern humans. Many rooms with old mirrors and very old wooden furniture. Feeling a bit basementy, you would not necessarily feel very comfortable here with as a bunch of loud guys. Very traditional approach to cuisine and service, the waiters finishing the meals in the dining room which you dont see anywhere nowadays. The traditional Belgian food was excellent, I had a great waterzooi. You pay a small premium for being in such an old place though. They have their own range of beers, rather typical yeasty Belgian stuff brewed in Payottenland if I understood correctly and above that, a solid list of bottles is available, probably not top 10 in Brussels though, but not quite worth pulling you in only for the list. Youd come to see the place and eat and would enjoy great beers as a bonus. Nice historical or even institutional experience, but I did not feel the same passion nor warmth than in Restobičres.

Dark but very nice place to spend some time. The food is very good, but I was disappointed how the waiter served our Cantillon gueuze. He poured it as if it was a lemonade or so. The result was a muddy coloured gueze that tasted very funky.

My last experience here was not a particularly good one - waiter was very aloof and wouldnt provide a beer menu, simply stated we have only bruin & blonde. I went for the bruin and happily got a St Bernard Grottenbier(I feared Leffe or Grimbergen). Food was excellent but a little pricey.

The food is traditional and excellent, the wait-staff is professional and knowledgeable, and the beer selection is quite good.
