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.

This cafe/restaurant is located right next to the cinema (Kinepolis) in Ghent and offers a great selection of beers. I'd like the service to improve a bit though, because the last times I visited, we had to get our drinks at the bar after waiting...More

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
