We spent only a couple of days in Bruges. Despite the wide variety of available bars and beer-related restaurants (not to mention the bar present in our very own hostel), we returned to this place several times. That speaks volumes for its quality.

The crowd seemed to be mostly tourists, although we ran into a few born-and-raised Brugites (?) that chatted with us. No one minded that we took pictures and / or jotted notes. They seemed to expect it, even.

Apparently there is a third non-smoking room in the back, which I was unaware of, but I sat in the two smoking rooms, and developed some reactions as a result (I am allergic to cigarette smoke). Plan ahead, I suppose.

The servers are attentive and bring the beer to your table, although not all of them pour properly. This is probably just a beer snob complaint, but when it comes to beers that generally have high carbonation, a good pour is a must.

The bottle selection is outstanding, and is presented in a laminated binder. There are only a handful of taps. I'm not sure if they rotate much.

The food platters were decent; mostly snacks, but they were a good way to get some solid food with your beer. Everything in Bruges closes pretty early it seems, so you may rely on their food menu if you're here for a while.

The prices were very reasonable.

A great little place off the beaten path in central Bruges. The atmosphere is quiet and comfortable, the service is friendly and the beer selection is solid. We split a 750ml bottle of Cantillon Cuvée St-Gilloise. It was awesome. I can't wait to go back!

Contrary to other reviews, we didn't feel so welcomed at this establishment. Place was small and jammed . We had to wave our waiter down just to order food and he said he would be back.

Draft selection was small, but the bottle list was huge. We got the typical cheese plate which was ok.
