An upscale restaurant just around the corner from the brewery and shop. Very good food and good service, but the prices are quite inflated -- even on the bottles (Oude Kriek Intense Red was 16Ä despite it being 6Ä around the corner in the shop!). A few great beers on tap that are, I think, exclusive to the restaurant including the Faro, Oude Lambik and Kriekenlambik -- and if youíre like me and want to try all of 3 Fonteinenís beers, itís worth stopping for.

Very nice brewery with amazing beers. Nice location just out of Brussels, with very friendly people. I was there during the Toer de Geuze 2013.

Quaint restaurant/location in the city of Beersel. Itís up a bit of a hill, which wasnít too much fun in the rain, but it was worth it. Of course bottles of gueuze available to drink as well as some rarer treats like the faro, oude lambik, and kriekenlambik. Didnít eat, but the menu looked great. Some vintage and special bottles available, too. Service was typically Belgian (read: slow), but a pleasant experience otherwise.

Place Rating #300, and boy did I have to go through hell to find this place. One train, one tram, one bus (twice) and then wait in the snow for an hour until they open since they can decide to change their hours on a whim. That said, it was worth it. Oude Kriek on cask was sublime. Faro was excellent. Not a ton to offer that you canít get in bottles elsewhere, but the food is delicious (made from their beer in many cases), and itís a dusty place where you can just enjoy the beer and not worry about anyone there for another reason. Amen.

I made it to Belgium, and 3 Fonteinen was right at the top of my list.
The atmosphere in the restaurant is fantastic. Quaint and serene, spacious and inviting. Service with a smile.
I spoke with Armand for a few hours about the brewery, lambic, etc. while enjoying a 1997 Oude Gueze (and a few others as well). The Kriek, lambic, kriekenlambik, faro are all must tries if you are fortunate enough to make it here.
Passion, tradition, quality, itís all here. My experience was so amazing here that I returned for another lengthy visit in lieu of visiting some of Belgiumís best breweries. That will have to wait for a subsequent visit. Overall, this was simply mind blowing. A bucket list kind of experience for me.

A visit to the 3 Fonteinen restaurant is an essential visit for lambic lovers. Now that Armandís tasting room is closed next to the shops, this is the place to come for draft 3 Fonteinen in Beersel. The place itself is a large traditional restaurant mostly full of the over-60s crowd. I was glad to have had the oude lambic and faro, but was fairly underwhelmed by the rest of the selection which consisted of <10 bottles. Yes there is some old stuff and hommage, but not even the full standard range. Food was traditional and flavoursome and service attentive. I am glad I visited, but am unlikely to return anytime soon, other than to visit the 3 Fonteinen shop down the street.

Visited on friday afternoon. Quite large place, pretty sober interior. Like a lot of belgian bars and restaurants. Small selection of 3 fonteinen products. Decent service. Food was ok-ish. Boring bread. Rating this place truly as the restaurant itself, the brewery + shop (of which the latter will be closed for the upgrade of the brewery) are of much higher value.

This place has never lost the heritage image; it is still a very down to earth bar and restaurant, made by and for local people but serving the world class beers of 3 Fonteinen. Great local cuisine and plenty of beer dishes. Thereís always a very vivid atmosphere and a pleasure to visit every time again (Used to live in the area)
