Quaint interior in a great location. Our server was friendly, but he was unbelievable inattentive, and it wasn’t even very busy. It took him forever to finally take our order, then it took him forever to bring it to us (probably 20 minutes). Then, while drinking our first beers, we watched two separate parties of two walk in, wait for a while, and then leave without even ordering. And on top of that, he didn’t serve people in the order in which they arrived. Food menu is very limited. We got cheese and sausage, which was just OK -- well below what most Belgium restaurants are capable of. I wanted to order another beer, but ended up leaving because our server just never came back. Had to pay the bartender downstairs. In short, it’s worth a visit if you’re in the area, but my advice is to sit at the bar; if you sit upstairs (with the nice water views) they might just forget about you like they did with us.

Nice location & view from the 2nd floor. Big selection of Belgian Beers (more then 100). Worth to visit if you are at Ghent.

He estado 3 veces y siempre repito. Es ideal para estar en su terraza con vistas al canal, bebiendo una boerken o boereniken a un muy buen precio.

A really cozy atmosphere here. The beer list was large, and the comments on the beer types were insightful and, in some cases, pretty funny. I didn’t realize it the first time I stopped by, but apparently they serve food upstairs too, and the menu looks great. Sadly when I stopped by again to try the food, the place was so packed I could barely get in the door. I wouldn’t count on being able to sit down here after 18:00 regardless of what day it is. I was lucky there was a group leaving when I stopped by for the first time on a weekday afternoon.

One of the most important Beer Bars in Belgium. a bit pricey sometimes, and staff can be slow, but the location is just super, the food is good, and foodpairing goes without saying. A must do!

Went here in 2011 with Travlr and had a blast. Probably best beer bar in Gent even though all of them are awesome. Beautiful terrace, right next to the canal and house boats. Beautiful area at night. Great cheese and spicy mustard to pair with the beers. Interesting hanging garden ambiance. Big bottle list and decent number of taps. Lots of fun. Local hangout.

Have visited this bar a number of times over the years, most recently in November 2010. Popped in for a couple at 1am on a Saturday night/Sunday morning and actually managed to get a couple of seats at the bar (the place is always crowded). Headed straight to the bottled menu which has around 100 options (4 or so on draft). The bottled menu doesn’t contain much in the way of rareities. The layout of this bar is akin to an English/Irish pub with various artifacts and ols books strewn around and is table service. However as we were sat around the bar we proffered from a much faster bar service and didn’t go thirsty (top tip, as on previous visits the table service can be somewhat slow - normally due to the fact the bar is jam packed!) As is our tradition on a Ghent visit, we piled into the Dreupelkot next door for good night Jenevers :P

Nice place, good selection several exiting taps like Gandavum. Pretty ok bottle selection, but a lot of the usual ( Belgian ) suspects
