“Good food but a little bit pricey for Schuman area”
Review of La Fontaine

La Fontaine
Ranked #2,958 of 3,688 Restaurants in Brussels
Cuisines: European
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 November 2013

The menu has a good range of salads, pastas, risottos, mussels etc. Prices are a little bit expensive for this level of restaurant.

Service is usually reasonable and friendly. This was the first time we ate an evening meal here: we ordered a scampi risotto and mussels in curry sauce. We also shared a generously-sized crème brulée. All dishes were excellent. The mussels were around 24 euros, which is more or less the usual price in Brussels. The risotto was 17 euros which is slightly over-priced. We also paid 25 euros for a bottle of pretty average white wine.

On a Sunday it is a nice relaxed location for a lazy breakfast with the papers – and one of the few places that are open on a Sunday morning in the Schuman area. You can get a slightly over-priced coffee, croissant, or omelette in a relaxed environment.

On warm evenings there is seating out front, although it doesn’t get much sun after around 17:00. Beers are also more expensive than average in Schuman. However, it is a nice spot when the other (limited) terrace space in Schuman is full…

I went there with a friend and we had a couple of beers and a burger: we spent 30 euro each...too much compared to Brussels standards.
Moreover the lady serving us was really unkind and when we asked her if we could have paid separately she started to complain loudly (a simple "no, Sorry" would have been more than enough!".
Finally...no receipt.
Not recommended at all.

We had a very nice dinner in the calm setting of La Fontaine on Saturday. Service was impeccable. The food was generally excellent (mussels curry and a generous portion of the classic steak), as well as the wine. The freshly baked bread with butter was a compliment.

Ended up here for lunch in an area that is pretty dead on the weekends when the Eurocrats are away. Had an excellent lunch even though I didn't want to spend 20€ on it, but they don't really have a lunch menu, so you're stuck with the same as dinner. Salad was excellent, wine too. But probably better for dinner. Service was very attentive and friendly.
