A wildly popular, original mini-chain of restaurant / café / bars with a laid-back atmosphere, a good selection of Belgian and some quirky beers, and friendly staff.
And the prices are truly hard to beat. Always great for a glass of wine with a small group of friends before a big night out, or a fairly cheap tasty lunch. The Putikas attract tons of local beer lovers, so call ahead to secure a table. The interior with a hint of whimsical Frenchness is extremely cozy and pleasantly dimmed; but beware – cigarettes are permitted and the non-smoking rooms are usually packed.
