This is the party beer cafe in the city center and they have internationally renowned DJs playing here occasionally. I once saw Hudson Mohawke spinning late night tunes. Good selection of beers and usually a nice special. This place is tiny and overflows into the street, especially in the summer time.

Great place. A few benches out front. Inside is small on the first floor, a couple of booths, four stools at the small bar. Modern piano jazz playing. Eight taps, 20 bottles or so. Nice bartender. Dim lighting, some candles. No really exciting beers but likely something new for most people. Tops for atmosphere, above average for selection.

What can you expect from a place so small you could build a full size replica in a large walk-in closet? Great, but limited selection, beer! This is a find, a place where you might believe you’d been transported back to a comfortable setting 200 years ago. Small but tasty selection of Belgian and a few Dutch brews. Expressing their revolutionary views by daftly ignoring the smoking ban. A crowd inside and out, but if you come, and appreciate a true old-hole-in-the-wall pub, you’ll know why.

Visited in may 2011. Very little place between coffee shops. Good selection of Belgian beers and good service. The beer menu wasn’t on sight when we visited there.

Visited 3/6/2012. Small and busy bar with a decent, if not wide, choice of Belgian beers. Prices were pretty good, a bottle of Girardin Kriek was E3.50 as was Tripel Karmeliet on tap. Barmaid was friendly and efficient and able to talk me through the range on offer. Very enjoyable.

Visited this place back in July 2003. The decor and the premises are very nice and cosy. Drank only Hoegaarden, but as the description says has a few other Belgians. The seat next to windows offer a good view to the wall across only couples of meters due to narrow street. Back in the day (2003) the wall had a graffiti/painting of tropical island with palms, beah and the sky. It was a very good way to create a larger space illusion for the outside view.

Judged as a small bar 50 metres off Dam Square this place is remarkable. Roomy and relaxing it ain’t never going to be, nor can it reasonably keep / keep reasonably more than 30-40 beers.

The Belgique is nice if you are there when it is not crowded. Then it is a cute, cozy and stylish hole-in-the-wall place with a lovingly assembled collection of staples and a few changing beers that are also always quality stuff. The staff do their best even at times when the place is packed up to the ceiling. Sometimes you can catch the odd live music event there and wonder how space can be so warped to fit a band and an audience into this place at the same time.
