This place is just the most, the ambiance is great the decor is great, the food is good and the service is fast but not pushy, you can take your time. But the best part is the beer, the selection of Belgian beers is great you have some in all types. We had a good time.

Wow!! Allo pub, juste le décor est spécial, sur tout dans l’Abbey, on se sens dans une petite chapelle, mais avec la bière. Comme je l’ai mentioné, j’ai mangé et bu dans l’Abbey avec LadySusan. La sélection de bière, La Bible de Bière, est très bonne et la bouf est #1. C’est un Do again!!

More expensive than l’Autre Oeil hey have a thick beer menu, but it is filled with a lot of uninteresting pale ales and lagers. If you want some interesting belgian or Québec brews, l’Autre Oeil has a much better selection at better prices. The decor is worth a look though.

Came here this summer and was impressed. The Belgian section is absolutely gorgeous and has a pleasant selection for government-controlled Canadians. Check in the fridges, you might find something that’s not in the paper menu. Cantillons were a little expensive, but they are priceless gems anyway. I too don’t understand why the place is split in two and the Belgian beers only available in the Belgian "Abbey" section, but I guess it works for them. Great building, fun selection for Canada, probably the best place for a beer in Ottawa.

Beer Nervana for me (so far). This place is amazing. Food is good, patio is excellent (especially the semi covered area between the Abby and the main pub). Beer selection is amazing with over 200 bottles. All beers served in the proper glass. Great look Medieval theme, great atmosphere. As said Nervana.

Awesome interior with stained glass, wrought iron, dark wood. Has a few hallways and nooks and crannies, somewhat mideval theme. Front patio with awning. Separate room called the Abbey had some rare and interesting stuff, Cantillon, Rogue, St Bernadous and a few others. Pretty good service, staff seemed to have a bit of a clue. Most beers were in stock and served in the proper glassware. Attached store had a nice selection of glassware and t-shirts, tap handles and signs.

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.

Boutip  (68) Gatineau, Quebec | May 2, 2005
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.
