Me and Loz visited Café Lombardo on Thursday 19th March 2015. I was quite surprised that we’d not been here before as it’s close’ish’ to Moeder Lambic, Café Du Soleil etc. It is an attractive old brown café with huge old windows, we sat at a window seat and chuckled as the attempts to prevent drafts were to stick small pieces of tissue into holes in the frame. The beer list was impressive but I am unconvinced everything on the list is always available, Loz’s first choice wasn’t and he wobbled a bit at a choice I made before eventually finding it. It’s a large single roomed building, the bar is prominent and straight ahead as you enter, and if like us you are sat by the window a fab place to watch the world go by and people watch. The owner said he was proud that he had the correct glassware for 90% of their beers. It was quite when we were here mid/late afternoon. This is certainly a place with character, it looks lived in and a bit of an institution. We liked it a lot, what we weren’t so keen on was the smelly toilets, they really were dreadful. It might also be nice to take advantage of the outside seating in warmer weather, though you are close to the traffic here. Btw the guys who run/own this place have just opened a new beer shop around the corner on Rue de Midi called The Beer Store.

A small and lively bar, with a good selection of draught beers and a large bottled beer list. When we arrived we were told there would be a 15 minute wait for a table, but it wasn’t anywhere near that long! The service was friendly and more than happy to speak English with us. We had the Carbonnade and the Rabbit in Kriek, both were very tasty.

Decent enough place with a decent enough selection. But not wildly exciting. There’s many more exciting places around but it’s good for a change I guess. Service was a little surly, but won’t hold it against them.

Classic pub, brown wood, beer posters, beer signs etc. About 10 taps, fairly good quality, but nothing outstanding. Same goes for the fairly long bottle list. Food was nice without being outstanding. Good for a bite of food, and a beer or 2. Got a little cafeteria feel to it, and the overall ambiance is ruined somehow by the TV’s playing loud pop music.

Basic and almost no frills brasserie with the usual suspects on tap and a bottle list that won’t surprise but there’s always a beer worth drinking in Brussels. I grabbed a bite to eat here to refuel - a penne dish washed down with a Taras Boulba which hit the spot. Friendly staff and service was prompt.

Brasserie du Lombard may not have the same ring to it as Nüetnigenough, just up the street, and frankly their pasta dishes are a bit bland (though the moules frites are pretty decent). However, service has alway been good and they have a pretty decent draft beer selection, usually one or more from Brouwerij Huyghe (Delirium Tremens and Deliria on my last visit) in addition to other classic Belgian ales, such as the delicious Trippel Karmeliet. Their bottle beer menu is very decent too, so all in all I enjoy myself much more at Brasserie du Lombard than at Nüetnigenough. Last visited: 2014-04-27.

My kind of pub, I counted 15 beers on tap, a huge list of beers on the menu.
The decoration with for example lots of beer posters makes it a cozy place. The tables are not too crammed together, you feel quite at home.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, I had 2 Brasserie de la Senne beers, the Taras Boulba and the Stouterik.
My wife and me both had pasta, penne Lombard for her and spagetti carbonara for me. A typical bar food, it was delicious.
I could spend whole afternoons there getting through their huge list :-)

I rather like this place, friendly, lots of space, fairly long tap list, lots of bottles, tasty food. Could easily lose many hours in here.

Came here with the Haand crew. Atypically, it’s a beer geek place in Brussels. Middle Eastern staff, all friendly and efficient. Good tap list, massive bottle list. Tasty food.
