After visiting both De Garre and the Bear, I was left wholly depressed. Why in gods name can we not have something like either of these two places at home. The closest we've got in Canada is Volo.

Small and perfectly accomadating with more of the to the point but affable flemish service (I'll take it any day over the fawning service at home). A great place to rest after a long day walking around town. Two small gas fireplaces warm you up quickly. While I'm not a smoker I truly prefered the brown cafes to the more modern less smokey newer bars (i.e Erasmus).

Great bottle list, however the pleasure for me thoughout the whole trip was drinking from the van t' vat selection. Draft Bons Voeux, and Hommelbier were oustanding.

You could easily lose a day here. Love the fact that Belgians bring their dogs everywhere including the bar for a drink. Obviously a definite must. (882 characters)

This place is what grabbing a beer at a Belgium pub is all about to me. Daisy and the staff are all extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The selection is excellent, but the taps are limited (and weren't particularly exciting). (227 characters)

First stop on Brugges 2015, beer selection was great, I just wish they offered a couple of alternative styles to Belgian only offerings. I get that it's a Belgian beer bar, but I might have stayed more than 4 hours if they had a Gose or IPA palette cleanser.

Meet some awesome Britts on holiday, overall nice experience. Worth a visit! (336 characters)

Pretty neat place. It's places like this that make me understand where Belgian-style bars in the US get their ideas. Overall, I thought the vibe was nice, but it was HOT as hell in there, even on a cool April evening, and a lot of it was probably body heat, as at the front bar section you're pretty much elbow to elbow with your neighbors.

I got the best service here out of most or possibly all of the bars I visited in Belgium. I grabbed a bar seat, and got everything I needed within a reasonable time. I don't know, but it just seems to me in general that servers over here in Belgium are mostly honey badgers. But not at this bar.

Nice selection of beers, maybe not super rare whales that you'd think are all over the place here, but good Belgian staples and trappist items. Taplist was mainly pale ales and blondes and so on, so I opted for a fresh 375 of 3F Geuze. Snacky but satisfying food items. I went with the cheese and salami "nibbler," which kept me going fine.

Definitely a good place to visit, but as the saying goes: "if you don't like the heat, stay out of the kitchen." I was dripping with sweat when I walked out of the bar, and that's the only thing that would keep me from going there again. (1,218 characters)

Warm (literally and atmosphere-wise), welcoming pub with a great selection and prompt, knowledgable service. We were having such a great time that we nearly missed the last train back to Brussels. (197 characters)
