It looks like we were the latest in a long line of tourists to fall prey to being ripped off here! Yes it is quirky, but I was charged 6 euros for a beer that I had paid 4 - 4.5 elsewhere. Fine if it...More

Quirky - yes. It was only when he charged us 18 euros for 1 tall beer that we realised we had fallen into the basic tourist trap of not checking prices before ordering. Avoid the cobwebs and keep going to a bar by the canal.

Charging tourists double prices... 7 euro for a chimay beer that will cost you on the most expensive terrace about 4 euro no explanation at all!

This place is most certainly like marmite; you’re either going to love it or hate it, but we loved it. The owner is super quirky and friendly, his cat, Telouse, just pops up out of the random rubble of things that fill this bar to...More

'One of a kind' is a phrase that is overused but once you've been here, you definitely won't forget it in a hurry. You'll either love it or hate it but you will certainly talk about it to others. There's all kinds of random stuff...More

We ended up here while we were looking for a nice place to have a beer. From the outside this place doesn't look like much and this is actually confirmed on the inside. The place was cold and full of rubbish, clothes and bikes. The...More

This place ruined our fine evening. It has peculiar decorations and the owner is rather eccentric - we thought it’s interesting and he first came across as a sympathetic guy: watch out it’s a scam. He over charged us with more than double of the...More

Me and my wife visited here after reading about it in an article. It did not disappoint. The inside is full of bicycles 🚲 hanging from the ceiling. The gentleman who runs the place was so friendly. It's in a great location in patershol and...More
