There isnít much in the Cambie Village other than BierCraft, but that doesnít mean they rest on their laurels. I liked their overall presence, the bright neon sign occupying the corner of a building, and the mixed space inside and outside. They impart a half restaurant/half bar feel, making it accessible as a place to come for dining or drinks. We were not overly hungry when we arrived, but they place a cup of home made potato crisps on the table, and the quality of these is indicative of a kitchen that cares. Best chips Iíve had in a long time. We ordered the brisket mac-n-cheese to share and it was rich. Hostess was attentive and intelligent, and it was immediately apparent all the servers wore a cicerone shirt that was not just for show. Every question we had about beer was answered well and without hesitation. They are doing something right in creating a nice vibe here, as both staff and patrons seemed friendly. I do think that beer selection could improve, but having said that the beers were all in good form. I would rather have predictable beer in good form than unusual beer in bad form. They own the Bomber brewery and had a rack of Bomber taps, but we didnít try any as there were others drawing our attention. I was very impressed and would certainly go back.

Bright, wood-accented interior with gleaming InBev taps. The bottle list is focused on the Belgians, and includes several spec products. Prices are in line with Chambar. I didnít eat much but the food I had was pretty good. At this point, the best bar in town for bottles.

Similar to itís other pub by way of beers and food available. I liked it for what it is, a place to have a quiet bevvy or two. Simple pub grub. Staff were attentive.

Nice pub with a Belgian focus. Solid lineup of BC craft beer on draught, though certainly not among the best in the city in that regard. Some people consider the food expensive, but for the quality we got, we found it on the cheap side. The lasagna was original and greatly seasoned. Sure itís not an ubiquitous and quickly boring $10 pulled pork sandwich or burger that fills you up with its ton of fries on the side, but itís solid and varied cuisine that would be worth more in a different setting. Beers were fresh and while I understand that the lineup does not move so much, for the outside visitor, there were quite a few of interest. Service was friendly and helpful and the place felt welcoming and warm despite us being there with a child.

A good sized bar with separate seating area in a trendy part of town. Service is good and depending who you get will determine level of beer knowledge. Bartenders are pretty good. Selection is variable, from quite good to pretty boring. One of the only places in town with a decent Belgian selection on tap. Food is great, but a little pricey. I donít go often, but when I do I am pretty happy.

Been there when it was still Stella. Itís a cool place to hang out in the evening, and I like in general the atmosphere on Commercial Dr., but their focus on Belgian beers doesnít attract me.

Stopped by here for a few snacks and some drinks. They have a pretty good selection of Belgianís and the staff seem to know the product. The food was pretty stellar actually, and was fairly priced for what you received. Four of us ate and had a few rounds and the bill was under 80 bucks. I think the draught selection could be improved, but they certainly do have a lot of bottles. Nice low lighting and music that isnít intrusive give the place a nice chilled vibe. I enjoyed it and Iíd recommend it as a place for an evening out with friends.

Weak selection on taps, but very nice bottle selection - but the prices are terrible - about double to triple what they would cost from the liquor store - and due to this, I doubt I would return.

CapFlu  (205) Victoria, British Columbia | June 27, 2006| Updated June 28, 2006
A pleasant "L" shaped restaurant with an extensive Belgian beer list. In addition to the InBev taps were a couple of R&B and Okanagan handles. The beers are fairly pricey and the micros on tap were in sub-par condition. All three of the beers I tried (R&B Sun God, R&B Raven Cream and Okanagan Dark Munich) tasted of diacetyl. I ordered a quality 750ml bottle of Darbyste ($18) Belgian Ale from their extensive (30 bottle Belgian list) and some Korean Ribs ($11). Its a pricey place but well situated on Commercial Drive and has a decent ambiance.

Decent enough spot, good service if sitting at the bar. Very over priced but I guess you are paying for the selection, although they only have 1 I havenít had.
