I don’t know why, but I love this place. I always drink a "Petit Orval", and always love it. Never try to eat.. Will try next time!

Very nice ( tough modern ) place that’s very nice to have a drink and grab something to eat ( of the very good menu btw ! ) when you’re visiting the Abbey. The beer altough offocurse Orval only has 2 beers is great and the food , if you offcourse like Abbey cuisine / Belgian food is very good ! very nice place , must say that !

Petit Orval on draft, normal and old Orval in bottles. Great to have some beers and a meal after visiting the ruines. The food was nice too.

Great place - wonderful little benches and tables located beautifully next to the abbey. If you are in the area for the Abbey - where you can only visit the ruins but can buy cases for an average price of 1EUR/Bottle - this place is a must. They do serve the Petit Orval too - in the green logo glasses. The food is very good - mostly made with Orval, Orval Cheese and the monk’s Bread. I had a great potatoe gratin with orval cheese and beer. Stuff is really friendly and helpful - though we sucked as we do not speak any French. You can buy the Orval cheese here too. I would love to come back and do a long hiking tour after which I would go into the Ange Gardien.

This is a rating for the self guided tour around the monastery along with the restaurant. If you are there, make sure you walk the grounds as it is far worth the cost. What an experience from an historical aspect to see the remains of the original monastery. Nice gift shop to stop at and get beer or schwag. The restaurant itself offered a variety of Orvals (3 I recall!) and the food was decent. Had a 33cl of the aged Orval, mmm good!

It was a sunny day when we visited. At the outside, the first floor was almost empty when we came in, so service was good, but in like 15 minutes it he was completly packed and the service totally failed... Only one guy to take orders, not the most efficient guy, so we had to wait a very long time to get an extra Orval, or the bill etc etc. But it’s always nice to drink a beer you can’t find anywhere else, it’s a nice place to hang out, prices are ok, so you should stop and have a drink when you’re there, but don’t have to high expectations... Update: visited this place 6-7 times already now. Last time was februar of 2016. Seems like they upped their service and quality of the food a little. Prices are sooo good! 2.5 euro for a glass of the petit Orval, 3 euro for a young one and 3.5 euro for a aged one (>1y). Try the meatballs with the Orval-potatoe!

Visited last Friday at lunch time, right after visiting the abbey grounds -which make for a lovely stroll and a good feel of the heritage. Ange Gardien is located in a rather big, quite modern building. When we were there, only the ground floor was open, which meant we had to wait about 15 minutes for a place to sit. Very decent food, well made and quite affordable. Choice of bottled fresh and aged Orval, and on draught the unique Orval Vert (green, petit Orval). The Orval Vert is utterly splendid when fresh, and when I was there it was fresh, really fresh. It would definitely be my session beer of choice (and I do envy the monks).
A MUST visit for beer lovers!

Le cadre d’Orval est magnifique, et il est vraiment sympa à voir. Le restaurant n’a rien d’exceptionnel même si la nourriture à base de bière est sympa, cependant les moines ont encore beaucoup de boulot sur le fromage il devrait faire un échange culturel avec des moines fromagers français. En revanche pour les geeks de la bière c’est le paradis car il ya le petit Orval, seul Orval à la pression au Monde.
