“Great addition to Brugge Beer scene”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Since the demise of Curiosa as a beer venue I've missed the atmosphere of a vaulted cellar bar, but no more. Le Trappiste is excellent, a good beer selection with several on tap. The service was attentive and knowledgeable.
It can get quite busy, but if you get in and find a table you'll not want to leave in a hurry. Can't wait for my next visit.

“Fantastic bar”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

What an incredible setting to have a beer - a 13th Century cellar with fantastic brick arches. The hosts Regnier & Andre are very welcoming and very knowledgeable about the beers. Unlike some of the other bars in Bruges they have a very useful blackboard showing the draft beers on tap with a description for each. This makes buying something to suit your taste much easier. In addition to the extensive list of Belgian beers on offer they also stock beers from other countries including the UK. If you are going to Bruges make sure this bar is the top of your list to visit.

“Fantastic Bar and Staff”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Had a great couple of nights at this Bar when we were in Bruges. The staff were fantastic and very knowledgeable about the numerous beers they have on offer! The bar itself is a pretty special site itself and gives a very cave feel to it. Will recommend to many others!

“Best Bar In Bruges”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

Great beers in a great cellar setting. The owner and barman were very friendly and helpful in the challenge that is choosing from the many beers on tap. They also provided advice on where to eat for our big celebration evening meal which was a great recommendation. A must visit bar and an ideal bar to sample a cheeky Kwak that is served in the odd shaped glass and sits in the wooden stand.

“Great bar - very knowledgeable owner”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

Found this place almost by chance - recommended by another bar which was very full. Owner was a really lovely guy and really knows his beer. Wonderful selection and the setting is great - a vaulted cellar bar which is tastefully converted. Very impressed.
