While they have a very small bar, this is really just a restaurant. It's small overall but very charming and comfortable. The beer selection is solid with Trappists, lambics and more. My wife and I split a Cantillon Iris which was fantastic. I had the beef stew and she had the steak. Both were outstanding. Her steak was cooked perfectly and she loved the cream/mushroom/cognac sauce that accompanied it. We split a creme brûlée for dessert which capped it all off nicely. The service was very good and the prices reasonable of what you get. I'd definitely go back!

A small, popular, centrally located cafe with a small bar. A short but varied menu of slightly-modernized bier cuisine makes this place a fantastic dinner stop. They have a couple of beers on tap as well as a modest but well curated bottle list -- the list includes a lot of Cantillon bottles, including many of the big names that were no longer for sale at the brewery (Lou Pepes, Fou Foune). Be prepared to pay restaurant markups for the beer though -- Lou Pepe was close to $60USD.

Staff was very friendly, we had a 25 minute wait for a table and they were very accommodating of a couple of Americans with poor language skills.

Visited upon recommendation of the kind barkeep at Moeder Lambic Fontainas.

Having sustained myself on bread and cheese the occasional kebap my first week in Brussels, I was in search for some authentic Belgian fare with a beer list to match with the food. Located about a 10 minute walk from Grand Place, Nuetnigenough has about 30 seats, a typical Belgian bistro feel. The service is polite and attentive. I ordered the carbonade, the dish that all Belgian beer foodies use as the guide to test the quality of the kitchen. Cooked with Rochefort 8 (!), the stew had deep flavors, not a lot of vegetables (just an occasional carrot) but a depth of flavor that went well with my selected beer, De Graal's Pius X, which probably wasn't the right beer but is so impossible to find (even in the overpriced bottle shops, it appears I need to stop by the brewery), the sweetness and stone fruit back end cut nicely into the deep flavors of the stew. The bottle list isn't up to the world class standards of De Heeren van Liederkercke or Brasserie Cambrinus, but the quality of the food was superlative. They even sold bottles to go, though I didn't have the guts to ask about the 50 Degrees North-4 Degrees East. A huge step up from Brussels Restaurant Row and all the gilded overpriced, food places in town. If you are looking for some authentic Belgian food to pare with your beer-rabbit, stoemp, black pudding-this is the best place to eat in Brussels. Recommended for all beer gourmets.

Me and my wife went on sunday late in the afternoon just to get a table since they don't take reservations, as it turned out there were plenty of empty tables left. Beautiful art-deco building, kind of 1920's french bistro atmosphere, quite small dining area. The place was pretty empty and there was this tyical "lazy sunday" vibe. Friendly staff, the french speaking waiters really made an effort to help us out in dutch.
The food is really good, the menu focuses on belgian comfort food, most dishes are prepared with beer. The veal meatballs with stoemp were excellent, my wife had the cod à l'ostendaise and found it quite tasty.
The beer menu is is not about quantity but about quality. About 30 or so beers but they're all belgian craft beers from Alvinne, de la Senne, Brouwers Verzet, Dochter van de Korenaar...
The greatest thing about nuetnigenough is that the food and beer is very affordable, great value for your money.
If you are in Brussels and you are looking for place to eat, i would definitly recommend going to nuetnigenough.

Dining destination in Brussels - small place, snagged a table without issue around 6pm but I imagine it was tough sledding after that.

This is a restaurant. This is not a bar.

Brussels black pudding to start things off - mmm, blood. It's difficult to imagine not eating some sort of carbonnade/stoofvlees while in Brussels. I've seen that dish prepared in numerous different ways, but here, the house specialty is a preparation in Rochefort (8, i believe). Naturally, I paired the dish with the same.

Not a mindblowing beerlist, but lengthy, and it seemed they may have had some rotating releases on the fireplace that included some more obscure stuff (lou pepes, etc).

Service was typical for Belgium, somewhere between adequate and absent.

Solid spot - look forward to the next visit

For beer lovers there is simply no other place you should be eating at in Brussels. The 'Greedy Glutton', as the translation goes, has a menu to die for. Beer cuisine is the order of the day with old favourites like Carbonnade (Rochefort), Rabbit (Gueuze) and Chicken (Kriek) are supplemented with sensationally tasty dishes such as black pudding in rich and flavourful Orval sauce, Pork fillet cooked with the legendary 'Pius X' beer from the De Graal brewery as well as veal meatballs in wheat beer.

Incredibly diverse and imaginative beerlist from a host of lesser known breweries as well as established artisan brewers who never disappoint. Service is exemplary and incredibly friendly. Eager to help and educate.

This place is a must visit whenever in Brussels. Limited number of covers each mealtime so booking is often advisable. Just try it, you will not be disappointed.

Good value for $. Locals eat here and beer selection is very good. Recommended by staff at Moeder Lambic, and we were very pleased. Ate here twice during stay.
Nightly specials and classic Belgian dishes.
Carbonades Flamande was nice. Had a chicken breast in wit bier sauce, very tasty.
Veal meatballs so tender and delicately flavored.
Happy with the place, but no credit cards (bummer).
Most restaurants here take CC and the bars require cash.
Place is near the Moeder Lambic in Place Fountaines, close to the Mannequin Pis.
