Lovely little place out of the way. Fair prices on the beer. Great selection. Sells my favourite De Dolle Oerbier. Great atmosphere. Staff friendly and helpful. Always return here, once a year, when the beer festival is on.

The bar is in every tourist guide so does get busy, but locals also go there so that shows it's not just touristy. They have the biggest beer menu I have seen and the friendly staff will help you choose a beer if your not sure what to try, the platter is also good.

This pub serves up some very good food, and, of course, some excellent beers for you to enjoy throughout the evening.

Don't complain it's too busy, pick a time it's quieter! The most enormous range of beers with staff who know them all and are happy to hide you through. There's a second bar out the back if you can't get a seat! Simple, laid back and and a delight to while away a few hours.

Since this bar is in every tourist guide, it is inevitable buy and with little space between tables, pretty cramped too. Bets get there early if you want a seat. Very good beer range and decor, unchanged over the years. Opens from 16.00.

This is not a restaurant but a 'brown café' (old unchanged place for decades) beer temple with an very large choise of belgian beers. In the summer most of the time to much tourists and overcrowded.

My first visit to this little cafe was roughly 19 years ago and it hasn't changed at all since than. And that is a good thing, since it has loads of athmosphere. The owner is very knowlegable and can give you good advise about which beers to sample from the extensive menu. Since this is not a restaurant, I cannot... More

Found a nice little table in the back of this place and enjoyed a few beers. Some really nice choices from Préaris were a highlight for sure. Service was in a relaxed Belgian manner, but the staff were friendly & knowledgable so it was great chatting with them.

Great płace, lovely selection of beers and friendly staff. Interior has a lot of charakter, and a good mix of locals and tourists. I was quite keen on the fruity beers - had a Blackberry and banana, both were very testy! :) Recommend this place for any beer lovers visiting im Bruges.

Thank ixonne
