Visited the place on a rainy day. Apart from me 2 more guests inside plus 2 servants. The latter seemed more interested in speaking to one another than to serve. Beer selection not impressive, food in plenty but cafe like and disappointing. Maybe the place had a bad day. Nevere mind I have to rate my experience.

Thought I rated this place. A beautiful old converted carriage horse with a nice outdoor patio. Someone else picked up the bill so it made the place even better. Lifeman’s Kriek on vat was amazing. Didn’t have any food here.

Went there with Peter (oberabcbbsok) and a friend after LCRBM 2007. Thank goodness he was there, I would have gotten lost for sure. Service was really slow, especially since I wanted to go back to Kulminator for a nightcap, but the place was packed. The house brew Zeppelin was great and we enjoyed our meals, strangely served with rice rather than the ubiquitous fries. Peter explained that it’s some kind of fiscal loophole, if you serve fries you need a special permit or something, so they decided to keep costs down and serve rice instead. Another reason why I love Belgium, they have legislation over fries but you can get Beer out of a vending machine any time you want. The Beer list was pretty good, not as amazing as some of Antwerps’ well known bars, but for a restaurant type place it was fabulous. Prices are dirt cheap, so travellers on a budget who want to eat something other than Doner should take note of this place.

Went here with pat, voota and his gf jenny and pauline for diner. Good selection of belgiun ales about 70 or so avalible. I got a Mort Subite Oude Gueuze which was outstanding with some spagghti. Nice ambiance to the place. Only problems are its not too easy to find even with a map. And also there was one waiter for over 20 tables of which all wanted food.

Dropped in here for dinner and a few beers. Was quite busy, and they only had one barperson working, so service was very slow. Beer list was solid, lots of choice good prices. I ate the meatball with cherry, which was good, they also had pasta and a couple other Flemmish dishes to chose from. Worth a visit for sure.

A very good pub, always grate food made with beer and at very desent price. Always choise out of 3 main courses with beer. Also a changing tap. Also the place to find the beer Zeppelin on bottle special made for this pub

Reasonably-sized place with interesting decorations. Almost completely empty on a Saturday evening, which made it feel a bit characterless.

The beer list is not terribly extensive, but has some special beers (like the Zeppelin by Steenberge). I wouldn’t consider this place a must.

They have food, but we weren’t tempted by the menu and went elsewhere. The service was OK.

Was there sept 2006. Although classified as a Restaurant on this site, this is as much a pub as about all other places classified as Bar. This is more a pub that serves food than a restaurant that serves beer. Not easy to find, not a place you’d just walk by as a tourist. Amazing setting, a truly beautiful pub with a very cool kind-of-patio in front. Relative to belfium the beer list is rather small, less than 100 bottles. Although small the selection is interesting with some unusual beers. There’s also an exclusive beer (Zeppelin brewed by Van Steenberge) that is really worth trying. I had diner there. Food was ok but not great, I got my money’s worth. Friendly service. A must if you’re in the city.

Probably the surprise packet of our recent Benelux jaunt. I hope my positive views of this place are not tainted by the fact it was the first place we found that actually had Westy in stock. Comfortable layout, almost English tavern style inside, and a fantastic beer garden out front. As others have stated the beer list is focussed and very well priced (all Westy under e5.0). As the great man said ’do yourself a favour’. 6 taps and ~100 bottled offerings. Food menu looked solid is unspectacular (pasta e6.0, omlettes e4.0). Service above average.

Solid biercafe all around. Excellent setting, excellent design, wonderful food. I had the spinach soup, some coffee, and an order of olives for around €5-6. The only beer I tried was Zeppelin, which is supposedly made specifically for this cafe. It’s a bit of a walk, but it was good to travel through the university district and see some more interesting restaurants and shops in the area. Worth visiting.
