Odd little traditional Belgian beer cafe located fairly centrally in Antwerp. I have to say I rather enjoyed the experience. Yes it has a very local feel and it is 99% locals, but worth visiting for the beer. They have a comprehensive selection of lambic at unbeatable prices and had it not closed fairly shortly after we had arrived I would have stayed for some time.

Very nice old style family bar. Friendly service. Selection is limited and not very interesting. Prices are cheap. Overall: not a ticky place, but worth a visit to just have a nice cold beer.

A charming local pub that has been in the family for 3 generations. Cozy and very local with early hours. Beer list is small but very well priced. A few Lambics as well. Cash only.

Classico posto che piace o gli si trova mille difetti .. vero è un bar più per gente del posto più che per turisti , si ma dipende che turisti siete.. io fatto amicizia con dei simpatici ubriaconi semplicemente parlando di birra ( non sapevano che gli italiani facessero birra ;) ) .. per me altamente raccomandato anche se c’è di meglio in città ..

Bar com decoração antiga, bem ao estilo clássico belga, clima acolhedor. Boa seleção de cervejas, entre elas, algumas muito difíceis de se encontrar, por ser de "nano" cervejarias artesanais locais. um excelente bar para Happy-Hour.

True bruine kroeg style pub. Lots of local Antwerp people (can be a loud bunch). Smoking after "closing" inside. Nice selection of beers, good value for money. Not a tourist trap, but not necessary recommended for foreign travelers.

Classic Belgian bar complete with old men shouting at each other at the bar - difficult to get served. Selection quite limited but well priced.

Visited 29th, 30th & 31st May (4 times!). If you only have time to visit one bar in Antwerp this must be it. Wonderfully preserved interior in 1930s/40s style with great atmosphere and a sublime beer selection. Also excellent value - better than others we visited in central Antwerp

Small quiet old fashioned bar on a square. Reasonable selection of Belgian beers. Satisfactory service. Good place to sample the atmosphere of a traditional Belgian bar but not a great place to get exciting new beers.
