You can say what you want, people. The authenticity, location and the tapped De Koninck, makes this bar a winner.

Well-known pub in the old centre of Antwerp. Attracts lots of tourists. Beer list is basic: your classic íbollekeí De Koninck from tap, some trappists... The most interesting I found here (years ago) was a Westmalle Dubbel of a few years old which had matured gracefully. Otherwise: not really an interesting place for those visiting Antwerp for the beer.

Central location, so very crowded. Not very good selection. An average touristy spot in Antwerp. Preferable to sit outside and admire the view.

Nice central location, especially popular (it seems) when weather is good and the sun is on the outside seating.
Beer list is rather short and just features some classics.
Good place to enjoy the scenery and people, the typical íbollekeí is good and fresh, but donít expect too much in the sense of beer or service.

You wonít find a more beautiful city setting for a bar. Set upon a large square, this pub sits across from a majestic cathedral with a large and lovely fountain standing in between. That said, the beer range here is very uninspiring. I ordered the "gueuze" from the menu (it wasnít branded on the menu), which turned out to be a Belle-Vue, which in turn turned out to be a rather vulgar example of the gueuze style. There were plenty of other classic if very basic beers on offer. So, bottom line, this bar is in a fantastic location and itís a great place to sit and have a beer. Unfortunately, the beers to be had are lousy. Good prices, incidentally. Anyway, itís worth it to stop here for one drink, just to sit on the square and observe your surroundings.

The least attractive place on my short visit to Antwerpen, beer selection is under par, the waiter was not service minded at all, service was slow, too many customers for one person. Bad ambience.
