Good quebec taps with a great belgian bottle selection? Hell yes. Food is a bit pricey for what you get, but you’re here for the beer. Big selection of belgian bottles, some us imports and a pretty good quebec micro selection on tap. fairly welcoming for a person with limited french. Great place to spend summer nights. Service can get slow when its busy.

Went on a bike ride with a friend on a late sunny and warm Wednesday afternoon. Sat outside. Beer menu is almost an inch thick (close to 500 beers to choose from) Staff is very knowledgeable and pleasant to discuss beer with (thanks to Pierre) Food is OK but would be better if they upgrade the choice a bit. Anyway, not the place to eat but to drink. Probably the best selection of beers in the whole Ottawa-Gatineau area. The only negative aspect is the poor choice of american beers. Besides that, this place is surely worth a visit to any beer lover.

Love this place. With over 400 bottles to choose from, it’s amazing. Summer, a nice terrace in the front makes it awesome. Come and visit it!

Nice place with huge selection well described in the menu, but no brewed on place. Food is ok, service is excellent and price a a bit high but not too much.

Les quelques fois où je suis allé, le service était excellent, les suggestions parfaites et l’ambiance excellente. Le choix est excellent. La terrasse est grande, le choix est incroyable ! Belle expérience.

L’Autre-Oeil is located a bit past the supermalls in Aylmer, in a pretty-much residential area. And going there is pretty much like walking in somebody else’s house! They have a pretty nice terrace, which can be open when it rains (they have a tent). Ambiance, well, it’s between 3 or 5, depending when you’re getting there. A bit strange between 5 and 7 on weekdays, but really calm later on (which is appropriate), even when there are lots of people. Service ranges from great-to-awesome, depending who’s your waiter. They seem to have tasting sessions for attendants. Now, there is 500+beers. REally, really heavy on the belgian side - with some private imports. Lots of Quebec micro-brews, and while some would expect to find a bit more of them, it’s still a pretty satisfying selection that would take LOTS of time to completely get by. You don’t go there for food, but I certainly have not been disappointed so far. Value seems steep for some belgian beers, but you have to remember that they’re private imports. Otherwise, les "Trips à 4" are a really, really cheap way to drink some good Quebec microbrews (average, 14$, but you have some that are even less expansive than this, so it’s really, really worth it). A must for everybody in the region.

2010-03-05. Feels a bit like walking into someones house party, in a good way for the most part. Arriving around 600 on a Friday it was pretty packed. We grabbed a pint at the bar and waited for a table. I ended up with a large-ish glass (!!) of Trois Pistole to start and opt for a Belgian bottle for me second. Food menu is limited but decent. French onion soup was excellent, nachos were above average, Ceasar Panini is not what I expected but decent. My uncle wants to go back just for the soup! Service was a bit slow, but it was pretty busy and they were quite friendly. I think part of the slowness may be cultural, it seemed like if I didn’t have an empty glass I needed to flag someone down to get their attention? Beer menu was heavier on the Belgian side than expected, with fewer Quebec offerings than I had hoped for. Would definitely come back though. Short walk down to the beach before hand was nice.

This place is fantastic I go 2-3/month (I’m one of the lucky ones that lives a few blocks away) and every time I’ve been I’ve tried something different because the selection is enormous and it just keeps growing. Cozy inside with nice terrace outside. It’s a little bit pricey but this is to be expected due to the rare nature of some of the imports. The price for the Quebec micro brews however are very reasonable especially if you buy 4 from the same brewery (Trippe-à-4 for about 13-14$) The staff is extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. (They also have a new website that lists all the beers so check that out).
