Best combination of beer selection, cozy atmosphere, and location (adjacent to the cathedral). It is small so not guaranteed a table especially on those cold Belgian nights, but if you want the authentic Belgian beer experience, this is it.

This is the type of bar you enter as a beer lover around noon and you exit early in the morning. They have everything you want to taste and the atmosphere suits the occasion.

Visited this bar around lunch time and it wasn't too packed. Mixed clientel, locals families, workers and the odd tourist like myself. Seemed popular with dog walkers. Smallish bar on two levels with sunstantial reasonably priced snacks and a good beer menu. Despite being by the cathedral it wasn too touristy.

We visited the place twice, once just for drinks and the second for food and drinks. The beer choice is big, as you would imagine from a Belgian bar and there is quite a lot of food on offer as well. I had a feta or greek croque which was more like a feta toastie but was still very nice. Everything was reasonably priced and given the amount of people that we saw coming in to eat it is obviously very popular.
