Stopped in here to kill some time waiting on the beer line to open. All 3 beers are available. Didnít eat but the food looked great and service was good. Had a Westvleteren Blonde and picked up a six pack to go, then went across the street and picked up my 2 cases of "12".

Well worth the journey for the beer alone. Cafe is ok, but youíre there to drink the beer.

Cycling, walking, driving to this place is fantastic. The place however can be very busy, but the presented food (cheese,...) is very good. And of cours one can drink a Westvleteren here. If you are lucky and the shop is open one can bring six or more bottles home.

Very modern, sleek, stylish. Service was excellent, food was very good, and the beer selection- well they only had three- but who cares because you canít find those three beers practically anywhere. The blonde especially. The Westy ice cream kicks butt too!

Quite a huge place with fluorescent lighting, cramped tables, a long waiting line for the small store they have, quite some noise, even only three types of beer served.... And it all doesnít matter, because I was way to busy enjoying those beers. Loved the visit to the place, friendly staff, some nice rural surroundings and... a great opportunity to drink some very special beers.

Large bar, build for numbers.
If it wasnít for Westvleteren this bar would be crap. Too bad the Weslvleteren was served way too cold.

Strange to find a beer so hard to find,all most mythical, all the sudden easelly poured in for you the way you would do with a pilsner or wheatbeer like it means nothing.
The place it self is rather large and not really carrying out a nice atmosphere. Just plain "what you see is what you get" style. Food is not really out of the ordanairy but simple belgium style snacks and sandwiches. Make sure to pick up your 6-pack of beer when you leave!

Had lunch here right before I had my first experience with picking up Westvleteren beer from the abbey. The place is meant moslty to give customers a chance to taste the holy Westvleteren beer. You can drink it at the site. The food is quite allright. We had a sandwich with pate from the abbey which is very tasty. The selection is a little poor. Its either a croque monsieur (toasted sandwich) or a sandwich with pate. But most of the customers make it here because of the beer. Service was a little slow, but then the place was packed during Saturday lunch time.

A romantic venue where you can acquire three of perhaps the most famous beers known to Ratebeerians. The classic Westvleteren.
You get serverd in authentic trappist glasses and can actually pick up a six pack from the adjacent Westvleteren store.
I loved the pate when I was here last. A terrific Flemish dish oozing quality. I had a little struggle working out the menu and feel that English menus should be displayed.
It is a great place but the selection of beer is rather limited. The beers were bottled and kept in fridges. Having a blonde first is a must.
