Stopped by and had a few beers and the tapas. All were good. Not a big selection of beers even though this place sells itself as a Belgian beer place. But enough to be better that what is available elsewhere in Lausanne. There was a good selection of tapas - the trout on toast and the mushroom one were the best that I tasted,

What makes this a good pub? Beer and tapas! The Bruxelles Cafe has a great selection of Belgian beer and a pub menu that is not ordinary. There are burgers, and mussels, and who knows what else. You may, like me, stop reading the menu when you get to the tapas page. Delicious and plentiful.

This was the best value for money. For three people, beer and 11 tapas dishes came to 54CHF.

The Bruxelles Café rates highly for ambience, good people, and good food. What a nice place to stop off on a Saturday evening if you are in the area.

Went here for burger chips and beer - mainly for beer, on the Sunday night after the lac leman sportive. It delivered what was needed without excelling in any way. The beer was decent but not a wide choice; food was fine - burger, chips, Belgian chain.... Shoud be fine. The service was ok, a bit slow and not overly attentive but it got pretty busy later on and the vibe was pretty good.

I only ever go here for the burgers and frites (also delicious) and the wonderful Leffe beer on draft but it's always a satisfying experience. Good service, friendly atmosphere, at lunchtime anyway. I hear it gets very busy in the evening so it may be different then, but for a casual, reasonable lunch spot it's tops.

My wife and I decided to stop at this restaurant for lunch, and were not disappointed. We had seen it the night before and thought the menu had some attractive offerings. The location is quite convenient, as it is right next to the Place de la Riponne, and the Riponne metro stop. We went there on a Sunday for lunch, and there was a decent crowd outside. It was a little quiet inside, but that was to be expected on a Sunday. I decided to try their "Mitraillette" which is a huge sandwich that is made on a baguette bread, and includes ground beef, cheese, lettuce...and fries! It was huge and delicious! My wife had a chicken sandwich with an order of homemade fries, and it was also very good. The decor is typical pub-like, and I can imagine that the place is quite busy on Friday and Saturday night.
Overall, the quality of the food was great (not so much for the waist line, but what do you expect from pub food), the service attentive, and the location very convenient. I was not impressed with Lausanne as a whole, but if I find myself there again, the Bruxelles Cafe will definitely be one of my destinations! Enjoy!
