The cafe/restaurant is great for tasting the beers and the cheese from Westmalle, and the food is very good. But note that some of the services in the monastery are open to the public. It gives you a glimpse inside, but please behave respectfully! They...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

A nice café where you can enjoy some very good Westmalle trappist-beer. I tried the half & half dubbel/tripel, which is unique for the café, and it was a very good combo of beers. It is also possible to buy the beer on bottles, as...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
