Excellent location beside a canal in the main tourist area, hence gets very crowded. Good selection including some interesting house beers fron Van Steenberge & Proef. Probably one of Gent’s essential visits - if you can get in the door.
Nice location, right next to the water. You can sit outside, inside or on the first floor (most people don’t know that) where you have a very nice view on Ghent.
Great selection of beer, a must visit when you are in Ghent.
Great riverside location, especially in the early summer evening to catch the last of the sun. Fantastic wide selection of Belgian beers at very reasonable prices (given the central location). Some helpful notes in the beer menu to guide the novice. Cheese platter w/ mustard is good value. Service can be a bit slow and shoddy at times especially when the bar gets swamped by passing swarms of tourists.

A very small, cosy and hectic place, and the fact that I payed my visit during the Gentse Festivaal perhaps made it extra crowded. Still very nice, rustic and simple with a good assortment, including some local stuff made especially for the pub. Servive fast despite the tough conditions.
Was really pleased when I found this place - is beautifully straight out of the canal and then they have a really good selection available. They have among other things, several beers brewed especially for the bar
Spent eight day in Gent. Found this place on our first day and try as we might, couldn’t find a reason not to return most days. The service was at times slow, but in their defense, they were at times busy. Ordered a Golden Draack on my first visit and the waitress told me it was a "Manly Bier." Clearly she knows something about bier and men. As a dark bier drinker, I thought they had a fair selection. No Grimbergen, and no Rochefort 10, but what they did have was very much appreciated. Prices were reasonable, escpecially when you consider their excellent location.
