I came in too early, just opened, 1st guest. Therefor no atmosphere. Interesting location and decoration, feel like I am in church and confession is required. Standard beers, even small list. Its the place that does it, unique.

I have fond memories of this place because of 1) the jam-packed collection of religious statuary, and 2) that the barkeep suggested the first La Trappe Quad that I ever had.

Meget hyggelig og folkelig bar. Øllet er fint men det er stemningen som gør dette sted fortjent til et besøg

Very tourist orientated, and not exactly the largest beer range ever seen - but what glorious surroundings, in the shadow of the lovely cathedral.

Old Antwerp has some bars that are different and quirky and it has this place too.
If religious artifacts are your thing, or you think being watched by Jesus, Mary or anyone at all ecumenical while you bury a beer is cool, then this is your sort of place. The whole building is covered in statues and paintings; a pulpit even, anything and everything possible within the Christian faith has been found a slot to rest in or on.
My visit (walked past many times when closed) was on a cold December Sunday afternoon (2008) while the Christmas Market was in full swing and the shops opened for one of Belgiums rare Sunday shopping days. Upstairs was as busy as the ground floor, full of families and shoppers vieing with tourists for a seat. We sat near the heavily curtained door but got a cold blast everytime anyone came in or left.
Service was a little slow, but it was full and we were sat out of sight from the bar. Fair choice of beers, in another city it would have been excellent, but we are in Antwerp don’t forget.
Glad we made the effort to go in. Would I use it again? Only if we were showing people around bars and they hadn’t been in before.
Can I recommend it? Yes, but only for one drink and a look around, unless you are one of those persons from my second paragraph.

Worth checking out just for the decor - I’m a sucker for religious relics. However, overpriced, limited selection, menue isn’t veggie-friendly. Since we were only in there for the beer, staff pretty much ignored us.

Local totalment sorprenent, per fer-hi fotos. Selecció de cerveses bastant clàssica, però val la pena una visita.

Excellent if you want to sit outside and have a nice beer. The small (carfree) streets there are lovely, a bit touristic.
Inside the place, just gives me the creeps. To much statues of saints
