This is one of those places you have to bring a visit at least once during your life time, it’s high on the list and thus I had high expectations. The first impression was a bit meh... The vintage list is quite nice, still I miss some beers (Cantillon...) but you can’t have all, so I look beyond with that in mind. Inside was crowded so I could sit outside. Friendly but slowly I received the different beer and food cards and with an even slower pace I received a drink. The prices on the vintage list are from expensive to absurd! 2,5 years ago an ex collegue brought along a bottle of Crianza Helena which cost €35 back then. Nowadays a bottle (to drink at the site) costs €125... WTF! Also the Blue and Rose are €125 each to drink at the site... €60 for the Cantillon/3 Fonteinen blend (75) another WTF! They advertised with the 20 year Anniversary blend for €20 take away, when I ordered one they told me it’s €25... I told them to leave it in the cellar and point in the direction of the toilets in which the poster hang with the price I mentioned, as a make up for this mistake they sold it for €20 to take away but immediately took the posters down... The plus side is, the draught Lambics are cheap: €2.50. But the service is very slow, half of them even don’t know what’s going on and the other half doesn’t bother to come and ask if you need something even though they see people are asking for a drink or some food... Strange! Overall a place which is expensive with it’s bottles, decent to cheap with draughts, too slow with service and not living up to my expectation. Love to give them a 2nd change but seen the prices on the vintage list I either skip those beers of my list or I must be lucky (and so must be some friends) and share those bottles with them... Anyways, see for yourself!

Finally made it here. Situated perhaps not in the coziest surroundings, but the place itself has a really nice, beery, ambience. Heard that the service here can be slow, but it was just fine. The only thing was, and the biggest reason to not give it higher score, is that since the owner was not there, it was difficult to get the vintage stuff. Not that they did not want to, but because they didn’t know how to find it. Other than that; highly recommended.

Very popular so be there when they open at noon. I found the atmosphere really cozy, with low jazz music in the background and a very friendly waiter that talked us through the beer and food menu. They offered three lambics (cantillon, timmermans and lindemans) on cask, plus a handful non-sours. Bottle beer menu was amazing though a bit pricy for some of the older bottles. One of the best beer restaurants I’ve been to. Visited: 2014-04-26.

Large place in a small town not too far from Brussels. The ambiance is very nice. Like JulienHuxley said it’s "heavy wooden feel with lots of beer memorabilia". It’s hard to give the ambiance a 5/5 because we went at DHVL just after Grote Dorst and nothing can come close to Grote Dorst ambiance. Service was very friendly, but the owner seemed a little busy (sitting at the counter) while we where there. Selection is amazing the the cellar seem to be really deep. Lots of vintage stuff, including nice lambics. We had Blauw, Roze and Heerengueuze so the price tag was quite heavy, but there price on regular stuff and even some vintage bottles are very good. Food portions were gigantic, I wasn’t able to eat half of my spaghetti bowl. It was good though. This place is awesome and a must visit for any lambic lover but I would suggest to not visit it the same day as Grote Dorst (even if they are close) because anything will suffer from a comparison with Grote Dorst.

Nice restaurant off the beaten path (of non beer-geeks). The place has a heavy wooden feel with lots of beer memorabilia. The cellar here is very deep, as you can witness on their vintage bottle list. We came here to try the usual suspects of course, Roos, Blauw and Heerengueuze. All three are very expensive but that was expected of course and the prices on the other stuff on the menu seemed decent. The food was good, gigantic portions, nothing I had seen so far comes close in BE. The value for money on the food is good, I had the flemish stew and it was tasty.

Ideale plaats om te genieten van een lekker etentje of het degusteren van een biertje. In de zomer is het genieten op het terras. Maandmenu’s bereid door een topchef maar ook voor een gewone spaghetti ben je welkom. Prijs/kwalliteit dik in orde. Service wel traag, probeer langs te gaan op een donderdag, zaterdagmiddag of maandagmiddag

Inte så svårt att ta sig hit som man lätt kan få intryck av när man försöker söka info. Ta tåget mot Liedekreke. Första stationen efter Bryssel (nord) och tar ca 20 min (4 euro). Sedan ca 15-20 minuters promenad genom vad som denna dag närmast kan beskrivas som en spökstad. Lokalbefolkningen känner till detta ställe så det går bra att fråga sig fram om man inte har karta. Dock tycks jag ha svårt med uttalet för det tar i snitt fem försök innan någon fattar vad jag försöker säga. Pulsen stiger när man får syn på stället. Kliver in och det är i princip fullsat. Får dock intryck av att vi är dom enda turisterna här just nu. Ber om ölmenyn och den ser tung ut. Säger att jag hört rykten om en viss Rodenbach och jag får en annan meny. Här finns det tunga raritetet! Priserna är rimliga. Endast dom blytunga rariteterna som ligger på dryga tusenlappen. Herren som serverar oss är artig och trevlig. Kanske är det för att alla är på det här härliga stället som hela stan i övrigt är stendöd? Beställer en ost- och salamibricka som är helt ok. Folk runt oss beställer in vad som ser ut att vara riktigt bra mat, men vi väljer att bränna stålarna på öl denna gång. Väl värt ett besök för den ölintresserade.

Visited here on the way back from Brussels to have some dinner. We were told that they had the 3Fonteinen Framboos available, 1990 vintage! It was on the menu for 90 euros, fair price for such a rare beer, but unfortunately it wasn’t available anymore. Luckily, their vintage list is very big and their cellar is very deep, so we got another great bottle in stead. Food was absolutely amazing. Had the rib-eye steak with Rochefort sauce and it was superb. Best steak I’ve ever eaten by far, tender meat, great flavors and an awesome sauce. Service was a bit slow a times, but it didn’t really matter. The place is full of beer memorabilla and rare bottles are displayed. (two closed bottles of Millenium Gueuze just standing there..)
Very unique restaurant, truly outstanding and a great example of Belgian cuisine!
