When I was there like 8 months ago, the place was closed. But at 05 june 2010, we got in. I pretty much loved how it looked inside. Ofcourse, with our luck, we were just to late to visite the "Claustrum", and there was no possibility to get a 6-pack of the Westy back home with us... That was (both) a pretty big disappointment. So when we founded a table, we ordered some drinks. I got myself a Westvleteren blond and a "coupe In de vrede", wich was icecream with the beer inside. Prices was ok for me, can always be lower ofcourse, but I expected this place even some more expensive. Edit: Way to overcrowded, icecream that looked like a milkshake, way to slow service... Hope next time itís better again. Edit: Had to add some points after visiting multiple times. Yes, it can be better, but I had way worse for sure.

I did not know if I wanted to cry or to laugh at this place, then I just donít care. To go there, all the hipe about it, and then they donít sell it. Thereís a joke of a shop that has a A4 paper that says "we dont sell beer" Then they sell that so called gift box to share one bottle for 20 Euros. They have cheese that is claimed to be made with Trappist beer, but not Westy, but it does not taste beer at all. Then you can only drink the Westy in the cafe for 4,50 Euros. What a joke. I sometimes wonder if it is not all a tease. Youíve heard of the beer, you can taste the beer, but you cannot buy it. Donít waste your time here, just go to De Dolle or De Struise.

Quiet place in rural belgium. Visited on a nice sunny afternoon. Good times :-)

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!
