Visited a few years ago after a trip to Bruges. Large canteen-like place, looks a bit sterile, not really a bar-feel to it. All 3 beers were available, with the Blond for takeaway. Had some cheese, 8 & 12. Nice to have been there, but not really memorable considering ambiance.

Westvleteren magnificent trappist beers at an affordable price, along with Westvleteren trappist paté. Nice terrace in fair weather days.

Sort of "official" cafe for Westvleteren brewery. Since original low possibility to find their beer, this is a real good place to visit.

This is a cafe across the road from the abbey. My understanding is it is owned separately. The ’cafeteria’ style area has a decent food menu but it’s expensive. Ice cream w/ beer was good. You can sometimes buy beer to go. I would return maybe if I was there with a tourist friend but it is a very long drive from cities to visit.

Modern café type of building next to the abbey. Crowded, noisy. Not always very fiendly staff. Good quality food - basic but tasty and of course enjoy your Westvleteren with it. They serve it too cold though. Little tourist shop in the corner. Nice place to visit and grab some beers to take home if you don’t have the oppertunity to collect them at the abbey.

If you don’t have a reservation at Westvleteren, this is a good alternative. The beer range is what it is but the value is decent and you can get the Westies to take away. The food is pretty basic. The ambiance is something like a gift shop mixed with a tourist information centre that also serves world class beer and average food. Certainly worth visiting, though.

Met deze ’ontmoetingsruimte’ hadden ze gerust meer kunnen doen. Het personeel in de zaak kan gerust en stuk vriendelijker haar klandizie te woord staan en de inrichting laat stevig te wensen over. Ook het feit dat alle bieren (dus ook de 12 en 8) uit de koelkast komen in hun zaak, heeft mij al meermaals de wenkbrauwen doen fronsen.

Went a saturday at noon, very crowded both inside and outside. Very lucky to find a table on the outside since the inside resembles a visitor centre (as previous raters have pointed out). Food was nothing special, bread and cheese. Service was alright, staff was very busy since the place was full.

Modern looking cafelike type of bar, something that easily would fit into your local mall. Hordes of tourist, a low estimate would say 300 cars in the parking lot and the connecting streets. A long line inside for the gift shop. We where lucky and got hold of a table outside. Service on the slow side, but not surprising with the huge crowd there. On the upside you will get a Westy 12 for a little less than 5 € . Only the Blond for takeway at our visit, but sold at 2€. Prices on beer was cheap, but more expensive on the food. If in the area again ill proberly pop by to see if im lucky and can buy some Westy 12 to take home, but its not a place i really want to sit down and drink a beer again.
