After eighteen months, The Guardian Angel is back.

Orval's brewery taproom/cafe/restaurant, l'Ange Gardien,
renamed "A l'Ange Gardien" reopened on July 1st.

Only the façade of the original café remains.

The new café has a very futuristic look and features

bars, terraces (patios) and rooms for visitors. There

is a main dining room on the ground floor, and there

are also two rooms that can accommodate 140 people

on upper floors.

The Guardian Angel has reopened with a full restaurant

menu, with small plates like bread, sausage and cheese,

up to full meals including pastas, steaks, lamb, pork and

The Orval Vert/Green table beer is available on tap (for the

first time!) and in bottles, and fresh Orval and one year old

vintages are offered in bottled form.

The cafe will be open from 11am to 9pm. Closing day
