Convenient location on a heavy foot traffic patch of Rue St-Jean which means it’s catered for the crowds. As expected it’s expensive and you can guarantee it’ll always be lively with punters and live music. It’s ten bucks for pours on draft and silly prices for the Belgian bottles. Definitely not worth making a trip but most certainly you will walk past anyway.
Huge selection of beers but bottle prices are totally crazy. Draft prices are high but not bad enough that you really think twice. Definitely a tourist trap but it’s a really fun bar. We had a great evening here so I can see past some of the issues. Definitely not worth a special trip but if you’re in this part of the city it’s worth popping in.
Located on tourist highway, so expect tourist ambiance. Music is way too loud (even on the terasse). Service is fast and friendly. The selection is very good for belgian beers. The problem is that most of them are past or near past their best before dates. It’s ok for the stronger ones, but going for a 5% belgian is tricky. Food is not really good, but not terrible. Value is absolutely not acceptable. This is highway robbery. Bottled beer is very, very expensive. Overall, a nice selection of imported belgian beer is the main reason why you would want to go there. Other than that, i’d look for another option.
Located in the Old City. Went on a Sunday evening. Music was too loud. Service was ok, but not more. Selection is ok-good, but all beers were too old/past their prime. Food was bad. Price are sky high. How much for a 250 St. Louis Gueuze? 14,25$ + tx. Are you kidding? For beers past their prime and served too cold. Tourist place.
A great selection, especially of bottles (mostly Belgians). Probably the largest selection in the old city. Decent pub (British) food. Live music when we were there. The main problem is the ridiculous prices. Expect to pay 10 dollars for a pint or 13+ for a bottled beer. Old city prices. Wander to some of the places in the rest of the city and the prices instantly drop by 3-4 dollars a pint. Can’t deny the great selection, though.
Love this place in upper town. Close enough to my wifes favourite shopping places. Food is good, with some good value in the appetizers menu. Nice selection of belgian bottles and imports, fairly decent prices considering the area. Not a ton on tap, but what is on is quality.
Darkish saloon with tables and a long bar on one of the main streets in the old town. Highly accomplished selection of 100-ish Belgian beers and a healthy bunch of Canadian, mainly Quebecois craft breweries, includng Dieu du Ciel. Good pub fare though nothing exceptional.
