“Cozy place for lunch or drinks in the park. Salads there are tasty and huge. The outdoor seating is amazing both during winter with the fire pit and summer with the natural sunlight.”

“De Drie Gezusters isn’t the cheapest, it doesn’t provide the best quality drinks in town and the atmosphere can be a little crowded. So why visit? Because with its collection of twenty connected bars and 3750 person capacity, it’s the largest collective bar in Europe featuring beer taps. It can be found dominating the entire southern side of the Grote Markt. Visit it for the experience!”

“ Informal, a bit loud, but the vibe is fun and the cooking was very well-executed when we were there. They do breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the biggest influence is New Hip American, “small bites”, waffles, burgers, sandwiches, pasta, fondue, none of which sounds exciting but they do try to put a fresh spin on things. Definitely make a reservation. ”

“This is more of a summertime hangout for us because they have a nice big terrace on a canal, but one day a serious rainstorm appeared out of nowhere and we had to hang out inside for a couple of hours and it was also nice. Above-average food. ”

“Live jazz every Tuesday night, the best regular session in town, though that doesn't always mean it's good. It's a cozyish place. Get there before 22:00 if you want to be able to see more than one musician from your seat, the seating is a bit haphazard. And, not that you would ever do this, but don't have an audible conversation during the music or the owner will be unhappy with you. ”
