A restaurant well deserving its high ranking on Ratebeer. The number of beers on the menu is not huge. But they are very well chosen. Their selection of Cantillions are the best I have encountered on any belgian restaurant.
We visited in May 2015 and we were lucky to hit an evening with a special 8-course gourmet dinner. Absolutely exquisite food, a true experience of taste and creativity. Some of the courses were cooking with beer. Master chef Dirk Myny took time to walk around the tables to chat with all guests and introduce all new courses.
I easily rank this to be one of the top five restaurant visits of my lifetime. And when it comes to priceworthyness possibly even the best of my life.
Finally a coincidence: One of the guests at the dinner was the owner of Cantillion with family. I took the opportunity to thank him personnaly for his vital contribution to world beer culture.

A nice resturant with a small but well selected number of lambics. Good belgian cousine, big servings at deacent prices.

This is a top restaurant when it comes to food. Never have I eaten brasserie cuisine at such a level. The food is stellar in terms of quality, the menu is creative and simple but the combinations are often interesting but sooo jummy f.e. slowly braised belly bacon with a tartare or tuna fish was just delish! Tarte au citron is the best I have ever had... That all being said... this is NOT a beer restaurant. The beer menu is limited but the Cantillon selection is exemplary for any restaurant in Brussels. As a beer geek, I’d say it should not be your first beer stop, but you should definitely pass by if you want to have an excellent meal (brasserie cuisine with that extra creative touch). Oh yeah, and the interior is getting you back to the beginning of the previous century. Definitely a recommendation.

Had a nice meal, take a gueuze cantillon, wine and after a cuvée florian and a 50°N.
It’s a restaurant (a damn good restaurant) not a beer bar... so the selection is thin with some Rulles, Jeandrain and Cantillon but with some rarities (florian for exempleI. The price of the food and the beer are not too high... even low for the cantillon

It took my a very long time before I made it to this lovely place! This cosy, kind of art modern interior, is located in the city centre of Brussels. A 10 minute walk from de Grote Markt. We went there on a regular monday evening, place was crowded, you couldn’t get in without a reservation. Service was quick and friendly. We started with the two beers from draught: Taras Boulba and Cantillon Gueuze! Bottle selection is small, but very impressive with 50N4E and Cuvée Florian on the list... We had the Cuvée Florian with the food. We ordered the menu at 55euro pp.Menu started with ravioli filled with small lobsters and a really tasty kind of mushrooms. This was followed by a Flemisch variant of what we call ’zeemesjes’. Then the a succulent piece of meat that had been braised for 4 hours in Cantillon Kriek, unbelievable! As dessert pineapple carpaccio with passion fruit and milk ice cream. I can honestly say it’s been a while since I had such a lovely food. You won’t find any other restaurant with such a refined food, in combination with an awesome Cantillon list. Highly recommended if you want something more classy/fancy than the Nuet!

Beautiful and very good restaurant. Serving meals with a selection of lambics from Cantillon. Nothing much more for beer tickers.

amazing, beautiful restaurant. Beer selection was small, La Rulles estivale & maybe a couple other. Food was simply amazing, one of the best meals that i have ever had. Dressy, Brussels businessmen. Rating based on beer restaurant. 100/100 based on restaurant itself

Definitely not a restaurant that should be booked in search of rare beer. They have de la Senne Zinnebir on tap which was good. I had this after the dinner as refresher. Food which is good should better be matched with wine her imho. Decor and atmosphere is great. Pricey.

Nice restaurant, but do not go there as a beer geek. They make two of the dishes with lambic beer, but that’s the only beerlink they have. When asked to recommend a beer for the food, they totally missed. People going there for wine seemed to have a good time and they seemed to know their wines. It was even decanted at the table. Nice place for a good quiet dinner, but have nothing to do on Ratebeer.
