Easy to find, nice atmosphere & lots of young people in here. This place seems to be trending a bit, pretty packed but we managed to find a spot in the basement. There are multiple levels to this place. The whole place is a bit maze-like. Beer menu is solid, no real rarities but it had the most new tick’s for me from all the bars we visited during the pub crawl. Prizes are standard enough. Overall this place was solid enough place to try some beer.

I feel I owe this place a new rating, since they have changed a lot over the last few months. A bigger selection, good service, and they’re really trying to promote the Belgian beer culture. This place is moving up in my list of Gent favourites!
old rating (5/07/2011)
Very cosy interior, especially in the basement. Selection is ok but not too special. Quite pricey though. Service is mediocre, especially when in the basement you really need to pay attention and stop the waiter if he’s passing by, cause they tend to stay in the upper regions of the bar. Snacks are overpriced (at least the cheese/salami platter is).
MESSAGE FOR FOREIGNERS VISITING GENT: if you read this, you’re probably planning a visit to Belgium, and Gent in particular. I’m 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!

Cosy wooden bar spread over three levels. Very good bottle selection, with a few beers on tap. Awesome Hieronymus Bosch-style painting of trolls hangs upon the wall that seems to become more and more disturbing with each beer you sink. Check the boards for ’Beer Of The Month’ which is always ’buy one get one free’ - this month it is Maredsous 10 Tripel!

What an enormous pity! Came here at 5, so they should be open for at least an hour but everything was closed.. Asked the neighboring cafetaria and they only could tell me that they choose not to go open today and should be open tomorrow... Tried again later still closed... Assuming they had a good reason... Just for people going to Gent and wanting to check this place, be warned though I hope you’re more lucky than I was!
Beers on beer menu in internet looks promising. Outside of this place looks a bit strange/strange old.. Anyways, next time more luck...

really like the looks and otmosphere of this multifloor bar. Personnel is very friendly, in for a laugh and serves fast. Great (spicy!) mustard they serve with the cheese.

The troll themed, old-fashioned, all wooden bar right in the main city square across from a Gothic cathedral. Three different levels with a sort of ’loft’ upstairs where you can see below you. Not too many beers on tap, but some fun stuff like one beer served to me in a ceramic bowl. Really cool atmosphere, old Nordic almost beer hall, not as much variety as the waterfront bar, but very nice place to relax.
