This Belgian beer café breathed authenticity. We expected a tourist trap - which it might well be at some days - but on Friday night this was absolutely not the case. Classical relaxing music, local people and loads (i.e. around four hundred) of beers to choose from. Loved it!

This place is fantastic. The staff are helpful and well informed, happy to discuss the beers and make recommendations. The beer selection is excellent, with the option to match cheese with your choice. Sure Bruges has plenty of venues offering a plethora of beers, but there's a charm and a sense of authenticity here that's not an off-the-shelf soulless bar... More

We were wondering why there are quite a lot people waiting for the pub to open at 4pm, but it's really worth the visit. Rustic furniture delivers a very cozy atmosphere and the beer menu is premium class. Six great beers on tap and a big number of bottled beers, a fantastic place for beer geeks. The people inside make... More

Visited this bar many times but after today's experience probably won't ever again. Was looking forward to a few beers in the afternoon before we ate so went about 1630. The place was packed, which was not a problem and the barman was welcoming and told is we could stay at the bar or move to a room further back,... More

Over 300 types of beer to enjoy in welcoming, cosy surroundings. Open later than most other bars we visited in Bruges. Away from the busy tourist spots and popular with locals, a great find!

Friendly atmosphere, lots and lots of very good beer, very nice prices. The service is very good and quick, and quite clean. The favourite of the Brugge citizens.
