Good selection with plenty information, nice ambience, clean and friendly. My wife lost her purse her and when she returned two days later, the staff recognised her and produced it, cards and money intact, Bless them! Free snacks on table, excellent beer, mixed clientele, wood & brick interior, nice experience.
Good beer list, knowledgeable owner. Crappy service, probably because the place is understaffed: usually one (!) guy serving the whole place which is about 120 persons at maximum capacity, while the owner stays behind the bar. Good ambiance, although it used to be always very smoky. But I haven’t been there since the no-smoking law is in order. Hope it’s better now! Prices are rather high (4.5€ for a Rodenbach Grand Cru, real geuzes start at around 7 and go up till 11 for 37.5cl). Snacks are way overpriced. A good place for a drink or two, but not for the whole night, unless money is no problem to you.
MESSAGE FOR FOREIGNERS VISITING GENT: if you read this, you’re probably planning a visit to Belgium, and Gent in particular. I’m always interested to get to know other ratebeerians, and if you come from an interesting country, we can maybe to an in person beer trade? Contact me!
nice bar, not that buisy ( maybe we went on a wrong hour) but very chatty local people . menu isnt that wide, but with a decent selection ( wide range of trappist beers and some local stuff ) . staff was friendly,
Bar in the heart of Gent’s (modest) red light district. Curious blend of old and new decor lends a disjointed atmosphere. Good beer menu with a healthy selection. Service was prompt and friendly, even exchanging a bottle that we’d drunkenly ordered by mistake.
With a hame like trappist house, I had high hopes. This is a decent belgian bar with nice beers available but nothing too extensive. Come here with friends but there are better bars with binders full of beers.
