When we arrived, the waiter told us to go upstairs because all of the tables downstairs were occupied. We waited for approximately 20 minutes there, but no one came to wait our table. When I eventually went to order downstairs at the bar, the waiter was pissed at me for ordering there. The beer was good indeed, but the unfriendly... More

We only stopped here for a beer and didn't have any food. If you are looking for a nice place to sit by the river and have a few beers, then this will do nicely. Looking at the recent reviews, I can't say much more or anything different. It has a good beer list. The service was very good, although... More

Of all the places in the centre of Ghent to drink Belgian beer on the waterfront, this is the first I would go back to. The outdoor seating is unfussy compared to that of the places on the Graslei, but comfortable, and more conducive to a good atmosphere. The beer selection is extensive and reasonably priced (see list on website);... More

What a great place to take the weight off your feet and enjoy one or two of the many beers available at this canal side establishment. Try the house beer, it's really good and then have a kwack, it's even better!

Brilliant canal side location to work through an excellent menu of superb beers, also a splendid gin house next door.

I don't know how we found this place but it was gem. Crossed off a few new beers on a evening in Ghent. It was busy but we got there at a good time and got a table. We picked the first round and based on that our awesome server helped us with the rest. He made great recommendation and... More

I organised a weekendtrip to Gent with people from work. We were there two days. For lunch we had the 'Breugeltafel'. It is a good way to meet some of the local products of the city. Beers, musturd, meat, bread. We only paid 11 euro per person and this was not much for all the things we had.

Beer selection is very good. Attitudes consistently poor, we've been here several times over a couple of years and it's always been the same.

This just concluded my nightlife Ghent experience. What a great selection. I am proud of myself :) Just another bar but no way you'll be disappointed.
