I’ve been ordering from the Belgian Shop for years. Ordered everything from glassware to beer and have never had any problems with wrong orders or broken bottles. This is the place I get my hard to get Belgian Beer at.

Ordered 12 bottles in autumn 2002. I don’t know where to star from so I’ll start from the beginning.
Ambience: What to write about ambience on web beer shop? Nothing (because of that rate is 1).
Service: I got the package after two weeks, considering the year that was reasonable time.
Selection: Both now and then beer lists are very good.
Food: I don’t like cheese, and you can find lots of Belgian chocolate in Croatia, so why to order it.
Overall: Lots of great Belgian beers but too high shipping fee.
Online shopping is nice if you can’t make a day trip to Belgium. They have just about anything you could want. The problem is that the price is at least $2 or more than what you could pay in a real store. Will come in usefull when I can’t make a 30 min drive!
This is a convenient website to order Belgians you can’t easily get in other places - Westvleteren, etc. The email communication was usually prompt but not always clear and there were a few beers that I ordered that were out of stock. Still, I’d order here again.
Ordered a Westy crate from them. The communication was excellent and the beer was packed so well it took me almost an hour to unwrap everything. I felt like I was unwrapping a mummy. Zero casualties. I highly recommend them.
Throw an order as a X-mas gift for myself (2009). The seledction was pretty good on the fruit side. Shipping was a bit expensive and long (time wise.) Stock wasn’t correct on the webpage, one was out of stock, but the lady was friedly and helpfull - unluckely I picked a beer that was of (not of date). packagning and lableing was excelent - not a word of beer anywere. The swedish customs dosen’t like privat import :-).
I haven’t dealt with Belgian Shop for a while, but I have placed a few orders with them in the past. My experience with them has been great. I hope it hasn’t changed, because I’d like to get into ordering from them again. This may be one of the only places to order Westy beers from, that I know of (although I haven’t done much searching lately). The prices seem a little expensive, but well worth it, because you’re getting top quality beers.
