Reviewed on September 12, 2011.
My girfriend wanted to eat here for her birthday dinner, so we arrived at 7:00 without a reservation and were seated immediately. The restaurant is located in a rustic old house which gives it a warmth that lasted until we met our waiter. Stephane took our order and seemed put-out that my girlfriend opted for the Samichlaus. Maybe he thought that a 14% ABV was unladylike? Whatever the reason, for the rest of the evening Stephane gave her the passive-aggressive treatment, practically throwing her entree and main dish in front of her without making eye contact or otherwise acknowledging her presence. He made a point of being friendly to me, as if to underscore his contempt for her. Totally unprofessional and unacceptable.
The food is of average bistro quality and the beers are very expensive, so all this place really has going for it is the ambience. Suffice it to say that Stephane’s behaviour ruined the latter.
We won’t be back.

Nice restaurant with small food selection but huge Belgian beer list. Go there if you would like to taste something no offered in SAQ. Pricing is a bit high but service is great. The menu is well presented separated per category of beer. The fried and home made mayo are a nice complement.

The choices of beers is very good if you are looking for Belgium beers . The service is pleasant and they do know a lot about the beers they sell. As for the food well I love mussels and this place is one of the best for mussels. I have been here several times.

Établissement visité le dimanche 12 novembre vers 16h. Ambiance: Ancienne maison tranformée en bistro. Décoration de bières belges un peu partout sur les murs. Foyer dans une des salles. Salle de réunion disponible au sous-sol. Service: Le personnel semble bien connaître les bières disponibles. Les bières sont servis dans leurs verres si disponible. Sélection: Quelques bières en fût de disponible mais on vient surtout aussi pour l’immense choix, pour le Québec, de bières belges en bouteille. Nourriture: Le menu ne m’a pas beaucoup impressionné et je dois avouer qu’il est asssez restraint. J’ai pris le hot dog français, il était correct sans plus. (33e rating d’établissement)

A little choice in food but a great choice in belgian beer. The sausage and french fries are excellent. The ambiance and look are nice.
Un petit menu avec un grand choix de bière belge. Les frites et saucisses sont excellentes. L’ambiance et le style du bistro est sympa.

Un très bon rival à Bière et Compagnies. Une très bonne sélection de bière belge, surtout non disponible dans les épicerie et les SAQ. La nouriture est plustôt simple, mais la boufe est secondaire.

Nice rustic place (well it’s looking like a country house). The service was excellent. Great selection of beers. I wonder where they get some of them. Not too expensive (about 20$ cnd per person with a beer for supper).

Very unlikely location. From the ouside it looks like an old homestead converted into a restaurant. Pictures of the Grand Place in Brussels and glassware exposed here and there. Downstairs near the washrooms is a private room for receptions and whatnot, also full of interesting glassware. Décor has this weird, almost country-western woodsy feeling that’s a little off. Sat near the bar in the non-smoking section. It was late Saturday night. Typical Belgium cuisine, some cheap, like Carbonnade Flammande cooked in Chimay for only 10$, some more expensive, mussels 20-25$ for a kilo, but I guess we’re not in season. Food was great, fries excellent, my entrée of coquilles St-Jacques was nothing compared to the one I had at In t’spinnekopke in Brussels, but was good enough. A few taps, Interbrew and Belle Gueule on the domestic side, nice variety of bottled Belgians. Some hard to find stuff in these parts like Super des Fagnes and Bush, but no off-the-wall brews for freaks like me. I was in the mood for a lambic but they had nothing other than St-Louis Pêche or some other sugary alternative. The waiter knew his stuff really well, and we even talked homebrew for a while. Beer prices are pretty steep, but I don’t think they are gouging the customers, I know how much their Beer costs them and I think the cut they take is reasonable. Recommended.

Decor is fairly simple and cottage-like. On a busy Friday night, the terrace was full of smokers. Indoors, the volume was high but the mood was quite convivial. Service was occasionally slow and appeared rushed while serving although care was taken at all times with the beer and proper glassware was de rigeur. One dish for our table of four was delivered a full ten minutes after the other three. Dessert order was forgotten and had to be requested a second time. The selection of Belgian beers while not exhaustive is quite extensive. There were a number of different choices to please the various palates at our table. The food, when it did arrive, was excellent. Steak was perfectly cooked and the sauce was very tasty. The hot sausages were wonderfully spicy without venturing into mouth burning and the Belgian stew with Chimay sauce was very tasty also. The desserts were also well-made and delicious. It seemed that the staff were overwhelmed by the crowded restaurant. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be making a return visit although I may shy away from busy weekend evenings.

Quinte and picturesque location with above average food - I was pleased with my sausage and sauerkraut. Le Bistro des Bieres Belges has a great selection of rare belgian beers that aren't found in the SAQ.
