The patio is not all that attractive but the main bar is nice and "the Abbey" is a cloistered beer haven. Fun to make the discovery after wandering down the hallways. Friendly, prompt service. Not so sure having separate beer menus for each area is a great thing but the selection is very impressive and certainly the best in Ottawa. Perhaps I’ll try the food next time, because I will definitely return.

Nice selection of bottle beers and taps for Ottawa (over 150 bottles and probably closed to 30 taps). The Abbey section is the place to go since they have some rare beers not on the regular menu (Cantillon, Rogue). Prices are what I expected for imported bottles. Food is a notch above average for Italian fares. Décor is great and patio is great during the summer months. The only downside is the clueless staff.

I remember on my first visit remarking with naive astonishment to the waitress over the novel discovery of the beer list. While Preston St isn’t the most picturesque scenery, the patio is welcome when the weather permits. The food is really good Italian fare.

First time there. Nice patio and themes. Found the selection on the menu to be OK, but I had tried almost all that was available (at least the Belgium selection). It took several requests to get an in-stock beer. Prices were OK.

Great beer selection from various countries including some good locals, awesome artwork/atmosphere, great Italian food. There’s also a store attached that sells various beer paraphenalia: glasses, shirts, etc. I was staying downtown, so the location wasn’t all too convenient for me, roughly a 3km walk each way. But it was well worth it!

Ok, so I'm biased, I live within about a 20 second walk of this place. That said, everyone I bring there loves it, despite them thinking I'm suggesting it simply for my convienience. The owner has a real love for beer, and has recently opened up a "Beer Art Treasures" store. From beer taps to scarves, glasses to jackets, wall hangings to t-shirts, it's all wonderful promo material. The selection of beer is great, I've tried probably only 40 out of the 165 beers available there, so I just guess I'll have to keep going back. I usually go sit in the abbey section, which features Belgian beers. Be aware that there is a different selection of beers for each section, I've moved tables so I can get the beer I want. Joe (the owner) has such a unique vision for creating a wonderful atmosphere, a mixture of roman, medieval italian, belgian abbey, and cluttered beer promo materials are all over the wonderfully decorated restaurant. I can't praise this pub highly enough.

Truly fantastic drinking destination - great selection, consignment, setting and good value for food. Ask about the "Abbey" hidden off the hallway to the washrooms - Yes! A whole other bar dedicated to Belgians... Enjoy!
