This place is very close to the Grote Markt and Burg and it is one of the most astonishing bierbrasserie I've ever seen. Due to the fact that the place in not big it's strongly advisable to call for a reservation, once inside the restaurant (hosted in an ancient building and furnished with style) you will receive a menu with hundreds of beers divided by category to make your (hard) choice. Food options are less, but you can find also some vegetarian choices. If you like beers the visit is surely worth.

This is right in the centre of Bruges. This Restaurant specialises in Belgian beers. It claims to stock 400 but we could not try them all though this was our 5th visit. The atmosphere is always convivial and service is excellent. The food is well cooked and very good value. Book a table for dinner

First thing make sure you book a table. We went there on Friday night and could only get a table on Sunday night! It was worth the wait. This is a very popular restaurant. The place is especially busy at weekends. It has a great atmosphere and friendly service.

The food is fairly hearty but beautifully cooked and delicious. Their menu is comprehensive and the fixed price menus offer a good choice. Drinks are reasonable and there is a vast array of beers.

Booked for a group of 12 for the Saturday evening. Busy and lively atmosphere. Food was excellent and staff were friendly and helpful. Great value for money and excellent choice for a local night out.

We really struggled to book a table here as they were so busy and it is obviously a very popular place but we persevered and turned up anyway one evening on the off chance that a table had become available. Luck was on our side and we only had to wait 10mins at the bar and were offered a lovely table. The food here was excellent and so reasonable in comparison to a lot of other places in Bruges. We had the beef carpaccio to start which was delicious and only12 euros, half the price of another restaurant we almost went to! We then had the chicken in beer sauce with bacon and silverskin onions which was very tasty although the chicken slightly on the dry side and the rabbit in prunes which was amazing! The portions were large and great value for money.

The selection of beers available is incredible. My partner tried the 4 'taster' beers which were a great idea. The cherry 'Liefmans' is definitely recommended!

If you can manage to get a table this is definitely a place to try in Bruges! Bustling, friendly atmosphere and the type of place you could spend a good hour or two relaxing in after an evening meal.
