“good quick lunch in a nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

the 7E menu for lunch was a very good deal, the hot mushrooms soup was good and the tuna or chseese and ham sandwich was of good quality. they also served mayonaisse, olives and pickleds at 2 menus. everything went well with a white bear.

nice atmosphere in the restaurant and they also have a big terrace if you want to smoke while serving a drink.

“Nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Enjoyable terrace for the late summer in Brussels. Thanks to Global Warming belgians and tourists alike can now enjoy the great "bieres trappistes" at a reasonable temperature, maybe even catch some sun while they are at it. Neighborhood is nice, close to the Bourse. Service not so fast, I recommend going to the bar and getting it your own thus avoiding any frustration of waiting for the waiter. Try an relax, since services are generally included in the price in Belgium.. there is only one reason the staff will smile at you.. they actually like you :)

“A Brussels tradition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Fontainas became a tradition for me in Brussels. Moved to the city 3 years ago, fontainas is one of the places I keep on visiting every now and then.

Especially convenient on a sunny Sunday morning, the best place to read a book and enjoy a good coffee. Staff is relatively friendly (really depends on who is serving as I had friends complaining on that issue - dont have any negative personal experience though).

They also sell small and tasty snacks and is quite convenient for lunch in the centre of the city.

Bottom line: I recommend the place for coffees, lunch and early drinks.

“My Brussels home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

Fontainas was the first place I've been to when I moved to Brussels 10 years ago and I've been back all the time. Coolest place in town. The food is great, I loved the grilled veggie sandwich or the veggie Lasagna. Portions are perfect and you don't have to spend much on it. On top, the terrace is great to sit on, till late at night, in the middle of Brussels artsy alternative gay-ish scene.
