As a local I grew up in this place , we used to go out for beers and a cheap meal maybe every week , but this place lost a lot of its flair. They redecorated maybe 3 times in 6years and it didn't get...More

This place is nice to have gatherings outside and watch what's happening along Mariaplaats. Apparently it used to be better than it is now, but other than having kind of slow service, I didn't have problems with it. It's nice to just sit here and...More

Nice place to listen to music (also alive) and drink beer. Food is average ' hapjes" , nothing special. Nice to be with friends and hanging around.

Terrible, terrible place, with the worst customer service I have ever experienced. They not only overcharged us, but accidentally made us pay 640 rather than 64 euros by messing up the PIN transaction. Sure, that can happen, but we were laughed at, not told what...More

This used to be a fantastic venue for rock n roll nostalgia, but that is no more. The guitars no longer adorn the wall; the music is modern; the service is horribly slow; the food selection is nil; the bathrooms were disgusting and unintended. I...More
