Decent place, lovely old fashioned feel to it. Decent beer list, though mostly beers of Moortgat, the trippel hop is decent enough. Service is good. Sort of typical old Belgian pub feel, even if there are not too many locals amongst the visitors.

Old fashioned brown cafe with lovely interior. Service is good, staff are friendly. Balance of local people and tourists. Good value. Average selection of beers but they do have good ones.

My wife and liked this place the moment we were through the door. It is obviously a well run and maintained pub, spotlessly clean, neat and tidy. The bar is straight in front of you as you walk in, leading away to your left. The tables and chairs there on the left were full of older generation locals who all knew each other and the staff. To the right is a larger area, full on our visit with shoppers, families and two tables of other Brits. Two men behind the bar manning the pumps and opening bottles, making coffee etc, an old chap looking after the regulars and a lady seeing to the main, larger room. All well drilled and as clean and tidy as the pub itself. The food looked good, cooked by an oriental lady who who popped up behind the bar occassionally. The beer selection isn’t going to send you into raptures but what they have is a solid list of beers that are worth drinking. No wierd stuff, but your normal Trappists, Abbey’s, Tripples, Blondes, Ambers, etc, etc. The place oozed a friendly pub style ambience rarely seen outside the UK. A very pleasant surprise indeed.

The oldest bar in the Benelux, staff is very friendly but old like most of the people sitting in the bar. As a local i almost never come here ? is seen as a touristic pub, also mostly there are Antverpians there

Now owned by De Koninck so has their so-so beers along with the other Duvel aquisitions - LaChouffe, Maredsous etc. Still very much a local’s pub despite it being mentioned in every guide book(coz it’s old). Certainly worth a look.

On our way downtown we stopped for a drink at this famous place which I would label more a large bar/pub than a restaurant. Laid back atmosphere early on a Thursday eve. The old, classical interior décor is just great and promotes a feeling of well-being and historical heritage. It claims to be the oldest café in Antwerpen with service since 1565. Got some interesting beers on tap and bottles. The service was a bit restricted, however, we appreciated the cheese with our Bockor pils (visited, 28.04.2011).

Visited here Sunday 20th March 2011. Tim Webb was absolutely correct in his description of this place in his Belgian Beer Guide book, Sunday afternoons do seem to see a lot of older folk frequent this place. It was a bigger bar than I imagined, wonderful windows, rooomy, good service. Beer list was absolutely fine, nothing out of the ordinary but, a nice place to escape away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. As we left it appeared a coach load of elderly folk were making their way in which meant quite a wait to even get out the place.

Tuesday afternoon, couple of customers. Some drinking beer some eating. Very nice place. The selection of beers was less than an average in Antwerp.

A classic bar in Antwerp, with a replica of a Pannepot. Very nice decor, well conserved, considering this establishment was created in the XVIth century. The uber-brown café. The food menu was full of local specialties, at decent price. The beer selection, at my count, was 26 bottles, and the 4 De Koninck on tap. A good stop for a Bolleke for sure, and an important part of Antwerp’s culture. It even has a Wikipedia entry: Quinten Matsijs, the oldest cafe in Holland and Belgium, lies in the heart of Antwerp. In earlier times, it was known as Cafe T’Gulick. Built in the 16th century, it was for centuries the gathering place for citizens from the principality of Gulick.
