My wife, father and law and his wife all went to this place on our last day in Brugge (our only full day that is). Review from notes and my memory which will not likely fade for this place. We went on June 10th, 2009.

Atmosphere: Great with hundreds of (apparently) empty bottles of beer with an emphasis on Belgian and Europeans but I did spot a few American beer bottles (Rolling Rock was one), a long wooden bar and seating with tables for about 150. The setting could not be better, within the brewery for Brugse Zot and (currently) two other beers. Very nice old style copper taps.

Quality: Great in that all beer was served in the appropriate glassware, the same glass being provided for Brugse Zot and Brugse Zot Brune and a seperate glass provided for the tripel, Staffe Hendrik. Very nice place mats and covered silverware were also provided with the "De Halve Maan" logo on them.

Service: Very good with a willing bartender, kind waitress.

Selection: I was aware of only the three beers available but frankly I did not even seek out any other beers. Selection was as good as it needs to be.

Food: Just fine. People in my party had a beer cheese soup (A bit thin by our standards) and possibly a salad (but my memory is not great for the food there....I was focused on the beer!)

Value: My only recollection is that the value was just fine.

A shiny, modern brewery with a nice view of the water from the bar and restaurant. I arrived just as food service was ending but I'll make time for based on what I saw on the menu and on the tables of the other guests. Their beer selection is limited but exceptional. Service was slow.

Hard place to review!

Brewery tour was outstanding. The gift shop was nice. Food was good, beer was very good, service was excellent. Just too formal for me.

What a disgrace. Walked a mile from my house to get lunch here when they opened. Sat at a table and waited 30 minutes, flagging down service, with absolutely no response. Fortunately I packed a sandwich for my daughter, so she sat with me and ate that while I sat there in vain without even a nod in my direction. So to hell with this place, the staff, and the beer which I didn't get to taste, but which I assume is just as terrible. Avoid this dump like the plague. A disgrace to Belgian breweries.
