A nice quaint Belgian restaurant with wonderfully prepared food and quick service. The beer list is small and mostly Belgian with some craft selections alongside the more mainstream beers we have grown to know so well.
Very atmospheric but they no longer have draft geuzes - boon & Drie Fonteinen in bottles only which seemed to be out of stock. I popped in between lunch and dinner so food was out but I could enjoy a beer with the place all to myself so service was fine.
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 don’t go there for the beer/lambiek...
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 you’re up for some old traditional restaurant experience. It’s 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 don’t 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. You’d 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 Restobières.
