Ambiance - Tavern located in a small village outside Brussels. Plenty of beer-related decor. We visited at opening so there weren’t too many people there except some locals enjoyed lunch. Calm and relaxed. Big patio outside. Service - Friendly. Selection - plenty of great beers of tap and in bottles. Plenty of older vintages. All special lambics made for them were there but some priced over $150 a bottle. We tried their own elderflower lambic from Lindemans which was really good. Also had some Orval with my food. Food - lots of stuff on the menu but I couldn’t avoid the complete Orval experience consisting of a potatoe and mice meat casserole made with Orval cheese with orval beer poured over it. Of course served with a glass of one year old Orval to drink. Value - Fair. The expensive bottles are very expensive but then again they’re not the whole experience and they would be out in seconds if cheap since you can buy them for takeaway. Additional comments - Great place! relaxed and cozy. donät go there if you’re in a hurry.
Cool place in a smaller city not that far from Brussels. Cosy interior and with a nice patio. Beer list was very impressive, especially the bottles. Loads of rare ones, some of them rather expensive though. We nada great time, and the Heeren van Liederecke-pasta I had was amazing. Definitely a place you should go to.
Iedere levensgenieter zou de gelegenheid moeten krijgen om hier eens te komen eten! Hier neem je ook tijd om te genieten. Bierliefhebbers komen hier zeker aan hun trekken, whiskyliefhebbers trouwens ook. Vriendelijke mensen, goede bediening, lekker eten, goeie foodparing, gezellig kader, groot terras, wat wenst een mens nog meer?
С одной стороны тут крутейший выбор винтажного пива, с другой - ну очень дорого. Еду принесли через 1ч15мин, кроме нас было еще ~10 человек. Подозреваю, что место рассчитано на туристов
kermis (372) Where the wild whales are, Netherlands | March 8, 2016
Been here loads of times but never got around to writing a review until now. There’s not really much that can be said that hasn’t been said already but for me this is an absolute favorite. Some people have criticized it for being slow, and yes, it is. It’s not a place to come and tick or expect to work through the whales at a quick pace. It’s a place to sit back and relax, take your time, enjoy a slow pace and enjoy some great beers and food. Wether it’s the big crazy bottles at a high price that can be found nowhere else in the world, the normal tap beers and basic bottles or the multitude of amazing stuff in the menu inbetween. The selection is amazing, the food is good and it’s a lovely place to be. Worth travelling from another continent for, though thankfully I don’t have to!
Visited with 2 friends. Nice place with a great selection of bottled beers some vintage beers. Tap selection was mostly Belgian and their own beer. This place is where you need to sit back and relax. Great service and excellent food. Highly recommended
Lots of fun. Did the beer and food matched 7 course deal. Was totally stuffed afterwards. It’s a special experience. Bottle list looked very good. Wish I had more time to explore it. Would love to go back if I can.
