Beautiful country setting next to the monastery. I came on a picturesque day and had lunch, each of the three westvleteren beers offered and beer ice cream. Must have been lucky because when I came, it was half full and the staff was extremely attentive. The lunch (croque monsieur) was unremarkable but the beer and especially the ice cream were spectacular. Perhaps the best ice cream iíve ever eaten. If I can make one recommendation, it is that you go here, get each of the delicious beers and stuff your face with remarkable ice cream made with westlvetern blonde. Life doesnít get much better. The gift shop is awesome. Got some cheap westy 12 and westvleteren glasses.

This restaurant/barís identity is shaped by the fact that it is a necessity given how many eager customers pack the premises every day to buy their Westvleteren beer. The food offered is less than mediocre and the service staff to me seemed criminally overworked; the service rating here reflects on management, not the poor teenager who took half an hour to get a beer order for us. We enjoyed our drinks in the bucolic scenery, and moved on as quickly as possible.

Come here for the three Westvleteren beers. 4.3 EUR for the XII. Food is mediocre. Service was very slow on Sunday afternoon.

Huge cafe full of elderly tourists, tiny gift shop that is frequently sold out. Couldnít buy any beer to take home, couldnít fully enjoy the cafe either since this place is so remote, you have to come by car.

Iíve waited years for this visit. My wife joked that this was a pilgrimage! I found the place hard to get to, great! The staff were helpful and friendly. Our beers were quality, the shop had 12 and we bought 24 bottles. Gift shop was not well stocked but snack was tasty and plenty of parking. Well worth the detour if you can buy beer to take with you.

The mecca of beer lovers is a modern large cafe with a fairly utilitarian approach to decor. Situated as it is in the middle of nowhere it resembles a slightly upmarket service station cafe, but letís be honest no-one is here for the decor. Itís the beers. And thatís what really matters here. Three of the finest beers in the world served fresh and in immaculate condition. Whilst Iíve heard the service and ambiance can be horrific when a coach party turns up, it was quick and efficient when I went on a Monday at lunchtime. Didnít try the food but bought some cheese to go from the shop and it was decent, but not amazing. Itís the beers that are really the draw here, and anywhere that can serve 3 beers of this quality is going to do alright.

Cafť with some food and a total selection of three beers, Westvleteren 6, 8 and 12. Small shop that sells Trappist products, including beer if you are lucky. Had 6 packs of Westy 12 for sale my first visit (1 per costumer) none on the second. If they have beer stocked our not is up to the monks and impossible to know in advance.

kraddel  (144) some beerplace , Belgium | November 9, 2013
Went there for a drink and some bottles . Nice looking building on the outside , but hell inside . Like sardines , self-employed beer-connaiseurs from around the world gather and wait for 2 hours to get their hairy paws on what people told em is the best beer in the world ,. Lines were 2 hours . Seatings where nowhere to be found We walked away from this mass-touristic event . with about 100 liters of struise beers in the trunk , who needs westy anyways?
