Absolutely lovely place with a great selection of Belgian and international beers. The atmosphere is cosy and authentic, and the owner makes you feel at home - describing the history behind each beer and the history of the building.

It's not expensive either and is an absolute must if you want to get the real Belgian beer drinking experience.

It's very hard to stand out in a city where there are so many fantastic venues but this is the kind of place you can't wait to visit again and I certainly will be. Top notch!

Amazing atmosphere. Amazing selection of Belgium beers. Amazing building. If you didn't 'to know about it you would never find it - but well worth the effort to find it. Great location just off the Markt square. A pleasure to drink there both nights. Thank you.

We visited Le Trappiste on a cold Saturday afternoon not long after it had opened at 5pm. We were really pleased with the find and it was exactly what we were looking for, a nice location which served a good selection of beers.

The staff were really informative and helpful with our suggestions. There was a great atmosphere as it started to get busy and can imagine that it is a real good night out later on in the evening.

Really pleased we found this place, totally made our weekend, especially the paddles of beers which means you can try lots of different ones!

Oh and the chocolate shots were fantastic :-)

Great location, fantastic cellar and an abundance of different beers, over 200 to sample and enjoy. Do not be timid on entry ask for a Paddle and the waiter will guide you through the beers on offer and select accordingly to meet your taste requirements.
Enjoy the differences in the five beers on the paddle, at 10 euros they are enough to wet your appetite to have some more of the ones you enjoy!

We tried this bar for the first time this weekend and we were glad we did. Great bar, great atmosphere and even better list of available beers. The Troubadour Obscura was fantastic. We'll certainly visit again when we are in Bruges.
