Ok place, has a nice selection of 3 Fonteinen. Food is okay, nothing special. Staff friendly and helpfull. Does not really breath geuze like the brewery and store.

Visited after visiting the brewery, stopped for lunch. Had some pretty tasty rabbit, with some nice Drie Fonteinen beers (Hommage and lambic). The service was very curteous, I liked the inner feel of the place. They had a nice selection of 3F beers with 1997 vintage gueuze topping the list. The prices were a little steep, but once you factor that tax and tip are included, it wasnít that bad. Iíd probably stop by here everytime Iím in town, though maybe not always to eat.

Visited in October 2012.
I was very excited to come to see where the best gueuze in the world is made. Actually we didnít really get to see the brewery, but rather we just went into the gift shop and then over to the restaurant to try some beer. The restaurant wasnít serving food at the time since it was between lunch and dinner. They do serve beer during those times however. Apparently if you ask they have older bottles of the oude gueuze available to drink there as well as things like Hommage. We didnít do any of that. Instead we tried the lambic and what ever vintage of gueuze they had. I have to say, while itís great getting the amazing beer at the source, Iím not sure Iíd rank this place so highly. The town is nice and parking is easy, and itís close to Beersel, but I canít see myself spending a lot of time at this restaurant. Iíd be more likely to raid the gift shop.

The place to go for 3 Fonteinen beers. They usually offer lambic, kriek and faro from cask plus dozens of geuze. Itís a bit noisy and service can be slow, but the sour ales are amazing! They still offer some good old ones, such as 1997 Oude Geuze and the 2007 Hommage. Visited: 2013-09-29

We stopped for lunch during the brewery celebration. Food was good, but it isnít cheap. Not much was available on tap--they even wouldnít serve me the faro, until I found out that they only had a little which they needed for the kitchen. Then they gave me some to try. I hear they have a great vintage list with fair prices, but we didnít see it. Note: seems they close from 15:00 until dinner. Not sure if it is every day, but they did when we went.

Really, four stars out of five? I donít get the hype. Food is very poor & beer prices are outrageous. If you want to pay 40Ä for a bottle of Hommage, then go ahead. The only interesting thing is 3F Lambic, 10Ä for 75cl. Cheapest thing on the menu. Bread (two slices) & patť: 12Ä.

A must go-place if you are visiting , but...besides from the 3 Fonteinen special beers, it is not that fantastic. Did not have any food, but would like to try another time though.

Very big restaurant around the corner of 3Fonteinen, overall feeling a bid outdated and corny ...
Food choises are classical and tipical belgian tavern/brasserie food, wich is ok only being that the price vs the size of the platters isnít too my likings...
For example i asked for the metballs in tomato sauce with fries, ( i was there with 2 friends ) and they literally gave me a bowl of sauce that was a bit bland and tasteless with 3 or 4 meatballs of medium size.
Even for people who are not big eaters they would deffinitly be able to eat 2 servings of this ...
And the fries were ok, not homemade but for that price i did expect them to come a bit sooner wth 2nd portion of fries, cause we only got 1 medium bowl for 3 people and had to ask 3 times before getting another serving.
My only positive thing is they serve the Kriekenlambik and the Faro from 3F, but thatís all i have to say about it ....
Sorry but there are places with the same concept who do a way better job at a better price .... not a fan ...

Nice charming little restaurant in a small Belgian village Ė easy to get to by car from Brussels distance-wise Ė tricky by train I hear. Good traditional food, agreeable prices, some of it made with lambic, nice stuff. Drinks are standard 3F offerings, geuze, kriek etc. nice prices plus their faro & lambic is on draft. The Faro is incredible. Some rarer bottles available, like Hommage & geuze from the late 90ís. Nice wine list as well. Nothing particularly rare or anything. Still a nice place to have a lunch or dinner & some drinks. The brewery & shop are right around the corner as well.
