The place is nice but the fod is really average, nothing to write home about. The service is a bit cold and hurried. The selection of beer is excellent but the toilets need to be redone.

Stopped in for a quick bite for lunch, would recommend. Husband and I had croque monsieur and chips washed down with some Belgium beers. Was really tasty. Server was very pleasant as well. Nice decor, background music and atmosphere. In central location as well. Menu is relatively simple but if you are looking for a quick pint (or to sample... More

First visited Cafe Lombard three years ago and it's still our favorite place to grab a beer and some people watching. They offer one of the best beer lists in the city and it's paired with a prime spot for people watching, especially in the warmer months when one can sit outside. If you're looking for a true restaurant, this... More

City centre bars are usually overpriced, lack warmth in terms of service, are often too busy for staff to care and serve poor quality products. From the look of the giant 'Delirium' parasols outside, we were prepared to be disappointed. But not here! We arrived to see a queue in front of us. One guy was sat at a larger... More

We passed by this bar and decided to look at the menu before looking at the inside (fortunately !). This bar offers an impressive selection of beers so we decided to go in, to find the decoration that does not inspire confidence in a bar. We decided to stay anyways and were not disappointed, the beers were great ! We... More

Very touristic place, food is of low quality, service is not friendly. The waitress unfortunately didn't ask if the food was alright, otherwise we could have given her some advice on cooking. Brussels has always been a city where effort is needed to discover its beauty (which it has plenty of). The same applies for its restaurants. Walk a bit,... More

This place has a very good beer selection, and is served by people who know their stuff. Staff are attentive and we found service was acceptable. Food is a bit hit and miss, but it comes out of the kitchen very hot. We visited three times, once for food and beer, the other times just for the beer selection. It... More
