Tried to get a drink but the serving girl obviously didn't feel like working. Lighting candles on the table next to us never looked so serious. 0/10 would not reccomend. Left and went to the 'boat' bar a few feet further and got a drink...More

Quite a way from the centre - 20 minutes walk - and so much less touristy than some places. The service was excellent for us as was the food of flemish stew & pork. The copper kettle above the bar is a great, imaginative touch.

We have had a drink here several times. The atmosphere is really nice, I like the top of an old copper vat over the bar especially. Beer selection not bad and if you can get a friendly local to translate the story on the menu...More

This is a café close to cinemas, so it's busy always. It has 6 different tab beers, very good selection. Because of its architecture, it's a bit noisy. You can say that it's a typical belgian café. I found the service simply satisfied but the...More

This place was about a two-minute walk from our B and B and was one of the places recommended to us by our hostess. She said it had simple Belgian food and snacks, loads of beers and prices were reasonable. And she was right! It's...More
