Discovered this by accident many years ago and Iím a steady customer since. The atmosphere is relaxed and quite cosy, in summer I prefer the little tables on the canal side. Staff changes regularly but some exceptions not mentioned, are usually friendly and helpful. Food is usually very much okay too, they have great ístoverijí made with Westmalle Dubbel and Rodenbach, as well as interesting pasta dishes, tasty meatballs in tomato sauce, and so on; I recommend following the weekly suggestions. As for the beer list: a bit stereotypical and overpriced indeed, and clearly less extensive than it used to be (I even had Westvleteren 12 here years ago), which is a pity; they do have a Dupont beer on tap, usually Moinette Blonde, a rare sight in Flanders. In all, very acceptable but perhaps not too exciting if youíre looking for rare beers. Do check out their whisky list too if you pass by.

Visited on july 31. Very nice outside terrace next to the canal. It was very quiet (thursday evening) with just a few guests sitting outside. Beer selection was decent, nothing special. Food was good, service was friendly.

The beer list is very standard & the prizes were high for beer. None of the beers available were new to me. Place is food oriented, we didnít eat here. We just tried a draft sample opting not too pay the asking price for the regular beers. Service was friendly & helpful. The place seemed a bit dead, there were almost no costumers which seemed a bit odd considering just how packed some of the bars we had visited prior to this one had been. This place is not particularly interesting for beer. The food looked like solid enough Belgian fare but I only glanced at the list. This may be an interesting place to eat at but not for beer only.

Sat outside at the canal. Good food, decent selection. Was very calm the times I was there, but it was early and might get busier later on.

I have not eaten here, but have had a few beers on different occasions. Always a nice selection of beers, always some Dupont on tap. I really should try out the terrace out back this summer... UPDATE: now Iíve eaten here a couple of times. Nothing fancy, but decent "pub food", even if we donít really have a pub food scene in Belgium.

MESSAGE FOR FOREIGNERS VISITING GENT: if you read this, youíre probably planning a visit to Belgium, and Gent in particular. Iím always interested to get to know other ratebeerians, and if you come from an interesting country, we can maybe to an in person beer trade? Contact me!

Countbeer  (204) Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, Netherlands | July 31, 2013
Great place next to the canal. Absolutely top notch food which has itís price. The beer selection is fine and perfectly cooled. Service is very friendly and on time with serving drinks and food. The beer selection has become a bit smaller than it previously was, so the man whind the counter told me. Mostly, if not all Belgian beers with some interesting rotating taps. Overall a place with great food, good beer selection, bit pricey but the location is good again. All by all would love to visit this place again.
