A worthwhile stop in a great neighbourhood. Impressive the number of offerings that have opened up in the last year or so, and this is one of the better ones. Went for lunch - the food was better than your average pub offerings (tortilla soup was excellent), but obviously what prompted us to stop was the beer. A serious bottle list (focused on Belgians) compliments the taps which are outstanding (slightly more expensive than most of the competition). While they definitely are pushing more mainstream Belgians (Fruli, Leffe, Affligem) they had plenty of decent locals and PNW

Finally went to this place after hearing so many great things about its beer selection.
First and foremost, it does have a nice atmosphere and, with all the belgian taps and proper glassware etc. everywhere, it really does feel like a little piece of Belgium in Vancouver.
The quality of the establishment is also good - its always busy and everyone seemed to be having a great time. There's nothing really hokey about it - i.e. it doesn't seem like they're trying too hard to be authentic, it just works.
Service-wise, there wasn't much to complain about. It took a while for the waitress to bring our beers but, hey, the place was jammed - can't really blame her for that!
As for their famous selection, it really does live up to the hype. Yes, it may not have as many great beers on-tap than a typical Belgian Bar, but its definitely got a good amount of them (I was finally able to try the Delirium Tremens, mmmm). It's really their bottle selection that shines. There's so much to choose from and, yes, the staff is good at remembering what you've tried and looking to make suggestions for the next round.
Our food was hit and miss. The Belgian frites and Mayonnaise we quite good, as were the fish tacos. However, our coconut cream mussels were way too salty (I guess it makes you order more beer, haha). Nothing offensive but this place is clearly about the beer.
Price-wise, the bottles are, indeed, quite expense (usually somewhere between $9 and $10) but the taps are a bit cheaper.
Overall, this is a must-visit establishment for any BA. The beer selection speaks for itself. If you're just going out for some drinks and some snacks, this is the place to go. However, if you want the food to match up the beers as well, go to Chambar!
