Quaint restaurant/location in the city of Beersel. Itís up a bit of a hill, which wasnít too much fun in the rain, but it was worth it. Of course bottles of gueuze available to drink as well as some rarer treats like the faro, oude lambik, and kriekenlambik. Didnít eat, but the menu looked great. Some vintage and special bottles available, too. Service was typically Belgian (read: slow), but a pleasant experience otherwise.

Nice not that small restaurant with chimney a little bar section. The ffod is either a basic selection or a few more special things cook with their beer or to match their beers. They have a special beer cellar with some treasures. Personally, I would strongly recommend not being the designated driver of the group, thatís less fun as it turned out ;-).

A nice old fashioned restaurant in Beersel, right around the corner from the brewery. The service is friendly, they have nice traditional food available (partly cooked with beer), and some of their beers as well: Lambic, Faro, Kriekenlambik from the hand pump, and vintage Gueuzes (1997 and 2001 when we were there - we went for the 1997 one for 39 Euros). Some bottle stuff (belgian industry beers) and if youíre lucky, Intense Red or Hommage. Extremely nice prices for the tap beers, and okay prices for the bottle beers. The vintages were priced very fairly. Definitely worth to drive out to Beersel from Brussels, but not only because of this place (thereís more you can do in Beersel) ;;)

Very old fashioned looking place: the sight of the 3 handpumps here in Payottenland makes it all worthwhile. Just visit..

Very big place ( surprise ! ) just next to the brewery and shop . Ran by the brother of Armand .
Service is phenomenal, very friendly, everyone made time to chat , even Armand himself stopped by . The lady works here for well over 20 y , which sais enough about the good atmosphere .
Food was just too damn good , and huge portions as well . Everything appeared to be really fresh and taken care of . Value was also pretty neat . Beerlist isnít to big, and in contradicition to what one might expect, not very 3 fonteinen based. Their core-range is made up with commercial beers ( Palm breweries - based ) , with some íextras ífrom the brewery , such as the geuze, kriek, ... Nothing to rare ( millenium or such ) , but the nice thing is the vintages . We took an 97 bottle for only 39 Euro !
The only downside here is the interior ( to me , it reminds me of what my grandma would call old fashionned ) and the music ( also from the late 30ís ???? ) But thatís just me and opinions may vary .
Certainly will return , as this is a great bonus feature when you visited the brewery .

Nice restaurant with plenty of seating both inside, and outside in the nice beergarden. We visited before noon the first opening day after the summervacation, so no beer on the 3 handpumps yet. One of the servers very kindly offered to go to the brewery and fill a jar with lambic for me, Thanks! Some bottle avaible aswell. Nice english speaking service who took the time to talk with us about our travel from Denmark, and beery stuff to do in Belgium. Dirt cheap prices (2Ä for my lambic) Would like to return some other time and enjoy some food with the beer.

Local place with very good traditional food. I had the Gueuze rabbit which was very good. Some special bottles at a reasonable price, we had the 2001 vintage gueuze for 30 euros which was in top shape. The best beer I had in Belgium. Service was good too.

This review will stand for both the shop and restaurant, since the brewery was unavailable for tour. We stayed only for a brief late morning visit, enough to enjoy a single bottle of a geuze in the restaurants gorgeous garden, and to purchase some gifts for ourselves and others in the shop. Lydie was overwhelmingly kind as she offered us tastings of the excellent spirit
díarmand and offered another perspective on what to do in Belgium. A lengthier visit is in store next time.

Visited a couple of times in the past. Very quiet, cosy place. Easy to find, and parking close by if you are by car. They have several of their beers on tap, as well as bootle beers. You can either sit inside, or you can enjoy the good weather in the beergarden outside. Very friendly staff, and they serve great food that goes well with the beers. Great place to visit, go there if you are in the area. Check out their openings hours before you plan to go there...

Klämmer en lunch efter besöket på bryggeriet. Faro och krieken (3F) på handpumpat samt en hel det 3Fs grejer, som väntat. Hungriga som as gjorde att alla var riktigt nöjda med maten men inte med väntetiden, vilket troligen var helt normal så här i efterhand. Känns som ett obligatorisk matställe efter bryggeribesöket.
