The legend of how difficult this place is to find is a bit blown out of proportion - in between Burg and Markt on Breidelstraat. Sure it's in an alleyway that may be hard to spot but if you just get in the area, it wont take you more than a minute to find it.

Lovely 2-story bar and definitely did feel like there were more locals than tourists, which is hard to believe given the prominent location. It was very packed and standing around really isnt an option. After a few minutes, we did land a table.

I knew of the house beer, and that was the plan from the get-go. The waiter wasn't going to let us escape that fate anyway. The tripel is worth the hype and the house glass is definitely a keeper if you can arrage that (tragically, I did not). I kicked back a few and turned the table over to the next group. Good stuff.

Super loud on a Saturday night. Very limited food selection. OK beer. It was very hard to get a table. We had a quick beer and got out of there.

cool place, back the narrow alley. three floors, up some also narrow stairs. We had to go up to the 3rd floor to find some space for our group at the communal tables. lively atmosphere. We had glasses of the house tripel, which was quite good. They had some other selections, but we didn't investigate much. Cash only

Excellent bar, stopped by on a mid-week night and the place was very busy. Managed to get a seat by the window upstairs which was nice. Excellent menu with it spanning several pages. Had the house tripel which was excellent, as were the two bottle I followed it with. Lively feel to the place and somewhere I'd go back to if I'm back in Bruges - probably the best bar I stopped by at in Belgium and there were quite a few good ones.

Another must go to place if you can find it. Head north of belfry and to the right corner of the square, 50yards and your looking for a tiny back alley entrance to your right (next to a traditional toy and mannequin store).
Once in, you'll feel like you have found a secret den, you can only sit and will be told to come back if already full.
Beer selection is a little limited and you are generally encouraged to take the house beer!! Personally try something else, but that's just my two pennies worth.

The place does feel like Rennie Artois' cafe in Allo Allo, and the table service from the head honcho is first rate.

Man, this place was hard to find! I'm a big guy, and I barely fit down the alley to get here. But damn, am I glad I did!

Tiny place, maybe 300 square feet per floor (there are three.). The size makes is very intimate and the vibe was friendly wth a good mix of patrons and languages.

Selection isn't at huge as some other places, but well curated, and the real draw is the house tripel, a monster of a beer at 11 % with a truly iconic glass, which they also sell. Everything is poured expertly, into correct glassware, of course.

Food is limited to some charcuterie and cheese, but it's very good. The paté was wonderful.

Overall, one of my favorite spots in Bruges, and a must visit for any beer fan!

Loved this spot. A really cool location with a great vibe... Total mix of people from families to couples to locals to tourists but it all seemed to mix for an upbeat lively time. The beer selection is great but I would recommend getting the De Garre house beer. The service was a little slow but everyone could not have been nicer.

Visited De Garre on 11/8/2015. It really is somewhat hard to find if you don't know what you're looking for - we walked by the "alley" twice tying to find it. Regardless, the place is well worth you time if visiting Brugge (my second favorite place). De Garre is intimate and rustic - lots of wood and stone. There are three floors to the establishment and what is cool is that you can look down from the second floor to the ground floor which offers a cool perspective. That said, each floor is fairly small and can maybe accommodate about 20 or so patrons. We came for the tripel, which was quite good, but the beer menu as a whole is fairly extensive. No "wales" per se; however, the bottle list was quite extensive (probably about 150 bottle offerings) and was organized by style. I found the prices to be quite reasonable when compared with offerings in the States. It appeared there were some light snacks on the menu; however, I didn't pay particularly close attention to that or the draft list. Well worth seeking out if you are in town.

Somehow lucked out and this was the first place I grabbed a beer on my pilgrimage to Belgium. What an amazing entrance tucked into a quiet alleyway in a beautiful historic building.

Everything about this place is the perfect pub, mixed with a bit of romance. Cool little bars in a historic building. The house beer is a really solid tripel too, a worth a try.

This isn't the place to get the best selection in Belgium, but what they do have is served properly, in the right glassware. The only gripe might be that the service isn't extremely knowledgeable in the context of some of the other top spots, but that doesn't mean they wouldn't blow away your average pub.
