Recommended by our B&B host, this place was great! We sampled a couple of delicious tap offerings the 'Belgium way' firstly by consuming street food choices of waffles & frites; "ne fond leggen" (lay the base) and then sipped on our beers for at least half an hour. These are strong beers that our stomachs would not appreciate a chugging!... More

Very cool place. Quality , variety and good staff. A bit wasted on me but my husband and brother (committed beer drinkers both!)would simply adore it. Even without being a serious beer buff I could see from the menu and the happy customers that this is the real deal in its area. Not sure why its categorized under restaurants though.

This pub has a wide selection of beer, but it is on the expensive side. The place is good, but I couldn't find it special to re- visit. Outside seating is terrible.

We had a great time at the place majorly because of the variety of beers they have. The place being located at a traffic intersection did not seemed to be good enough to use their outdoor seating so we were settled inside the place where in spite of being a little crowded we still were able to find ourselves decent...

The original "Moeder Lambic" was founded in nearby Saint Gilles many years ago. The place was (and is) famous for the unequalled number of different beers (though others have followed this successful recipe). For a number of years now, Moeder Lambic has this more centrally located café. I would not call Moeder Lambic a restaurant though it offers some snacks,... More

On a very busy weekend afternoon we found this gem. Enjoying only the lambics and the guest beers I can not comment on the food. We sat outside which while not the most ideal outdoor space, being very close to a some busy traffic, it was still great to sit outside and as visitors to Brussels feel very comfortable and... More

Uncomfortable seats but a great choice of good beer which we enjoyed. Shame the bar staff didnt respond to our request for the bottle menu as the bottle selection looked super

Moeder Lambic Fontainas has good food that is reasonably priced. Their beer selection is deep and varied. The quiche is delicious and I loved the malt grain they give you to munch on. Great place to spend an afternoon drinking. I would definitely go back!

We were staying close by and the hotel receptionist recommended we try this place for a beer or three. We walked past it a few times to-and-from the hotel and it was lways very busy and difficult to get a seat outside. On our last night we were in luck, found a table and enjoyed three lovely beers recommended to... More

We come here for the IPA and the IPA only. They do have a changing menu but most things stay the same. Careful, it is an expensive place. They serve little hops that can fill you up quite surprisingly. The staff is friendly but the place is usually packed. They can make better tshirts and have more gadgets for sale!
