This restaurant is located in a storefront setting, and is quite small inside so that the seating is somewhat crowded together (I counted 22 total chairs). A small bar at the rear seems to be only for patrons who are waiting for a table. A couple of tables outdoors also were being used by persons waiting for seating inside. (It was a chilly day, thus I doubt these people were going to stay there very long.) We arrived for an early dinner and got the last table for two.

The beer list here is all bottled offerings except for two beers on tap (both from Brasserie Dupont at the time of our visit). But the list of bottled beers looks like it is about 150 total bottles, most (or all) being Belgian. We split a bottle of Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus, and it was very tasty.

Many of the food entrees are described as being cooked with beer, so this place has a true beer focus. The food dishes that we chose were outstanding, and we wished that we could come here every evening during our trip. Tomorrow was going to take us to Germany, thus we have to put a re-visit on a back burner. This restaurant is highly recommended.

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!

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

This place is amazing. Very small and intimate setting. Despite being early Nov. the weather was great so we sat outside. Service was a bit slow but I think that's honestly just a cultural difference. Server was very attentive and he was happy to answer questions about the beer or offer recommendations. Great selection with a ton of Belgian lambics and other fun things to try. Really enjoyed the traditional Belgian cuisine often utilizing beer. Started with a leek and mushroom soup and had a beef stew with mashed root veggies for my entre. My friend had the rabbit which was awesome. Couldn't recommend a better place to grab a couple beers and a meal in Brussels.

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.

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.

Rustic, old-school decoration with ornate woodwork. A high ceiling helps deaden some of the noise. It feels like a long standing place to eat and drink, although it is fairly small. Quality is excellent in everything. The food preparation is good with a good display, the restrooms are clean, the place is clean, and the beer is good. Service is helpful and spoke English with me (two different servers over the course of my one hour visit). They were helpful in selecting a beer. Selection is solid, with the menu dividing out based on style. The only area that was lacking was the Trappist section, or more so, the lack thereof. Some of those Trappist beers were mixed in with the dark and brown categories, but a clean division for those seeking Belgian Trappist beers on a Brussels visit would be more friendly. Two guest taps help alter the selection although the beer's available is already fairly extensive. Food is great and outshines the beer, if slightly. Several of the dishes feature beer and are labeled as such, so a beer could both be ordered in the glass and a meal ordered prepared with the same beer (although it would be up to the customer to find this pairing, and isn't an advertised service). A great place to visit for those seeking a beer meal served with a good beer.
