Perhaps not worth going out of the way for, and there doesn’t seem to be much around in the area. The dude working the bar was good though, chatty and friendly. Met another beer enthusiast from the east coast. Some okay beers but nothing you don’t see elsewhere.

Bonne séléction et bonne sérvice avec les prix très raisonnables. Ils ont quelques bières qui sont difficile a trouver à Vancouver. Ça vaux la peine.
Belgian beer lover’s delight! Rock solid bottle list, draft is just behind it. Service was friendly, fast and knowledgable. Food was excellent, if a little bit pricy. Definitely worth it for tracking down that bottle of Cantillon to pair it with some mussels!
We had a very pleasant dinner at this restaurant/pub which got relatively atmospheric on a Saturday evening. The crowd was mostly young professionals and families and everyone seemed happy and relaxed. Service was attentive and friendly. I had a delicious Fat Tug IPA from Driftwood and while the menu leans towards belgian beers, but for the casual visitor, there are a few BC offerings worth looking to. The food was excellent and priced reasonably with a three service menu having a price tag of $24 and this was a real entrée, not a sandwich. If I spend more than a few days in vancouver or happen to be near Cambie village where there are not a whole ton of alternatives, I would definitely come back.
Nice pub atmosphere. A few things I’d not had but two of them tasted suspiciously off. Staff were slightly clueless - particularly since it wasn’t terribly busy when I was in. I can’t say I’d go out of my way to get here, but if you’re in the area, it’s worth bellying up to the bar.
Nice pub with an emphasis on Belgian beers. A pretty good selection with good food to boot. Where this place shines is service, I have always been impressed and especially the owner and manager who I have shared a beer or two with.

Pubby atmosphere, at least when empty. They had a smallish but solid range of beers on tap during my quick visit. Nothing I hadn’t had before, however, which was a bit disappointing. Worth a stop if you’re in the area, since there’s nowhere else to drink on Cambie.
