Stopped in here on advise from locals and was suitably impressed. The variety and taste were amazing. It has a fairly large floor space and the beers are on tap and taste even better than bottled!!. Sure the service may be a tiny bit on...More

Nice scenery, good food and drinks but average service. The waitress barely glanced our way. I don't think she said more than 3 words the 4 times we ordered drinks... Lovely beer tasting platter and menu though.

If you like Belgian beers, specially Westmalle, this brewery is indeed one of the best you can try; as you can guess they serve just Westmalle but if you like Trappist beers for sure you have to visit, at least, as experience.

I think one of the issues with this brewery is essentially you are experiencing the restaurant across the road, not a brewery per se. Yes, the crowd at cafe trappistan is elderly, no you will not have a "brewery" experience,so take it for what it...More

We came here after we drink some beers in another trappist brewery, La Trappe, in Netherland and we was a little disappointed. Beer was ok, but a lot of people over 60 years, a quiet atmosphere, and no fun at all.

The Westmalle café is great. Awesome dishes, friendly staff, the best beer of course! After enjoying a nice meal, cross the street and head to the abbey. It is gonna be closed. Don't be shy, ring the intercom. They will let you in, and you...More

Just in front of the abbey in the cafe, you can taste the real Trappist beer westmalle! My suggestion is to try the half triple half double beer to have an unique experience! Of course you cannot see the inside of the abbey due to...More

Not being able to visit the brewery is not a real issue having a great brasserie on the other side of the main road. My favorite is the Tripel having the highest alcohol content & super taste. You can also go for the dark one...More

You come to this place, located in front of the well-known Westmalle Abbey, known better for its fabulous Trappist-beer (double dark and Triple are my favourites). Not an extraordinary venue but a decent brasserie/cafe/resto where you'll enjoy a nice Trappist-beer with some Westmalle-cheese ... In...More
