We couldn’t find this place on our first attempt. But, after our hotel gave additional directions, we journeyed back out in the cold rain to find it. We arrived at 10:45pm (with a posted closing time of midnight) and were told they were closed. No...More

The challenge is finding this tavern in the first place! Even though I had located it earlier in the day I still struggled to find it later in the dark. Located just off the Burg down a narrow ally with no signage to help you....More

I'm not sure how this place has such great reviews? We came here based off these reviews, however, our experience was something quite different. It's a dark and dingy bar with unisex toilets, but that's not the worst part. We came late afternoon on a...More

The cutest place tucked down a little alleyway (it took us a while to find actually but it was definitely worth it). An almost overwhelming beer selection but the house beer was very good. We meant to come for one and ended up staying for...More

If you can find it you will love it, beer sold here can only be bought here. Very tasty and very strong, served with young Gouda, delicious

Just about to pop over to Bruges again and I have to say that De Garre is, quite literally my favourite bar, out of anywhere I've ever been. I have visited it many, many times over the years when I'm in Bruges. I'm really not...More

Best beer I've tasted in Belgium. Hard to locate this small and quaint pub but well worth the search. Le Garre beer is a full-bodied bark beer with a substantial head, served in a goblet. I think this is the first time I've ever described...More

This was everything it was cracked up to be. Perfect Belgian bar. Vast selection with pleasant informed staff. I went for the Witkap-Pater Stimulo - a smooth thirst quenching blonde. Highly recommended.

Hey Keith - I'd concur with boz. This is more of a place for after-dinner drinks for couples, or perhaps for a small group of friends.
