Located in a back alley near the centre. Easy to find. Oldest bar in Antwerp dating back to the mid 16th century. Interior is lovely, real sense of time. Focus is food, didn’t try any of it, looked typical Flemish. Good service, selection is dominated by Bockor and Duvel brands. Only noteworthy beer offering is the Bockor pils which was surprisingly pleasant & I haven’t seen before. Everything else very common. Service was good. Fun for a visit but definitely far from essential.

Nice old place from 1565. Tap and bottle selection is unsurprising. Worth it for the ambiance but not for ticking

Lovely looking old brown bar but only with a very small and obvious bottle and tap selection. Nice to go for the atmosphere but pushing it as a RateBeer destination.

Decent place, lovely old fashioned feel to it. Decent beer list, though mostly beers of Moortgat, the trippel hop is decent enough. Service is good. Sort of typical old Belgian pub feel, even if there are not too many locals amongst the visitors.

Old fashioned brown cafe with lovely interior. Service is good, staff are friendly. Balance of local people and tourists. Good value. Average selection of beers but they do have good ones.

My wife and liked this place the moment we were through the door. It is obviously a well run and maintained pub, spotlessly clean, neat and tidy. The bar is straight in front of you as you walk in, leading away to your left. The tables and chairs there on the left were full of older generation locals who all knew each other and the staff. To the right is a larger area, full on our visit with shoppers, families and two tables of other Brits. Two men behind the bar manning the pumps and opening bottles, making coffee etc, an old chap looking after the regulars and a lady seeing to the main, larger room. All well drilled and as clean and tidy as the pub itself. The food looked good, cooked by an oriental lady who who popped up behind the bar occassionally. The beer selection isn’t going to send you into raptures but what they have is a solid list of beers that are worth drinking. No wierd stuff, but your normal Trappists, Abbey’s, Tripples, Blondes, Ambers, etc, etc. The place oozed a friendly pub style ambience rarely seen outside the UK. A very pleasant surprise indeed.

The oldest bar in the Benelux, staff is very friendly but old like most of the people sitting in the bar. As a local i almost never come here ? is seen as a touristic pub, also mostly there are Antverpians there

Now owned by De Koninck so has their so-so beers along with the other Duvel aquisitions - LaChouffe, Maredsous etc. Still very much a local’s pub despite it being mentioned in every guide book(coz it’s old). Certainly worth a look.

On our way downtown we stopped for a drink at this famous place which I would label more a large bar/pub than a restaurant. Laid back atmosphere early on a Thursday eve. The old, classical interior décor is just great and promotes a feeling of well-being and historical heritage. It claims to be the oldest café in Antwerpen with service since 1565. Got some interesting beers on tap and bottles. The service was a bit restricted, however, we appreciated the cheese with our Bockor pils (visited, 28.04.2011).
