I don’t know why a lot of my ratings got deleted or dissapeared. Last visit in 2012 I think. Hope to be back soon.

One of the most interesting of the Ghent beer pubs, located in a cosy and pretty corner near the Leie river. Great to sit outdoors in summer, but usually very crowded, and service tends to be on the slow side. Staff is not always knowledgeable about beer but most of them are friendly enough. Beer list is quite extensive and new beers feature regularly, but they do seem to focus on the larger breweries, I suspect because they prefer to stay on the safe side - it remains a tourist attraction, after all. Interesting though is that they have several noteworthy house beers which cannot be found elsewhere. (The owner, a well-known figure in Ghent pub life, used to have a shop on the opposite side of the river where they were also sold, but apparently this shop has closed down meanwhile.)

Visited on a Saturday afternoon. Really nice terasse in super touristy center Ghent, very very pretty surroundings, right by the canal. Food and beer prices were not cheap but decent and the quality was good. Selection of Belgian classics, I just settled for some Orval although their hoppy housebeer is quite alright. Nice place.

Great location in the centre of historic, and beautiful, Gent. More than decent beer selection, including 3 house beers. Food was very good and large portions. Service was very slow.

Visited this place with my girlfriend as a quick stop to the beerfestival of Ghent. First thoughts: nice to very nice beerlist. We were waiting for 15-20 minutes and saw the waitress passing by several times, without even paying attention to us. After that we went to the bar to order our beers en they said they would bring it. After even another 15-20 minutes we still didn’t receive any beers. So we asked the waitress and she gave a very brutal answer. We were shocked by her aggressive reaction and left the place, without even seeing a single beer in more than 30 minutes. I presume there are far better places to visit in and around Ghent than this one, with maybe a smaller list, but at least with waitresses who treat their customers better than this brutal one. To conclude: great selection, nice location, bad service (slow and brutal). Not a place I would go back to.

Bellissimo locale, con ottima scelta di birre, soprattutto in bottiglia. Ogni tanto se ne possono trovare anche di invecchiate. Il personale non mi è sembrato molto disponibile e vi è poca selezione di cibo, ma nel pomeriggio o nel dopo cena è sicuramente un gran posto, da visitare assolutamente.

Visited in 2011. As I remember this wasn’t as great as the high rating here might seem. Allot of bottles but not that many that I found interesting. We only stayed for one beer and visited another place instead.

Cosy pub with a good selection of Belgian beers. Regular food (cheese, chorizo’s). Good pricing.

Located in the heart of the historical centre of Gent, overlooking a canal and a cute, small bridge, this pub is a cozy refuge from the thriving, busy Groentenmarkt (and the other markten, too.) The staff are correct but not excessively friendly. The selection is probably one of the best in town, featuring 18 taps with well-known Belgian stuff and allegedly over a hundred bottles (the menu features less than a quarter of that). No real food, but when I asked for a portion of cheese, it weighed more than half a pound. Not very expensive. Live music even on weekdays in lunchtime. Could be back again one day.

Excellent bar with a great selection. Some staff members were friendly, others less so, but the best place in Gent, regardless.
