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.

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.

In my opinion, a precious gem. This barnot only exceeds all levels of expectations as far as selection goes, having three hundred plus beers, and the staff are so incredibly helpful. It had a rustic, local feel too it and it was a perfect way to start the evening. It was a quiet place to really just enjoy the beer!
