Relatively small restaurant with extra room in the back. Service is all done by professionals, which is the exception in this student town. The menu of three dishes plus coffe is excellent. For each dish you can chose meat, fish or veggie. Special alternatives are possible in case of alergies. You can include beer, wine, apero. BOB also gets special... More

A very pleasant dining experience in this restaurant in the middle of town. Ordered the Atlantic salmon which was cooked to perfection in a bed of vegetables. Great food.

Good food, excellent quality products and cozy seating. We had carpaccio and salmon as starter and a T-bone steak as main, steak was superbe quality. Wine was a bit of a letdown. Seating is limited so Best to reserve your table. Staff is young but friendly and well organised

Small and cosy restaurant. Reservation is required for Fridays. Very nice menu that is well prepared with good quality ingredients. Bit cramped to be taking in a push chair but for couples a great experience

We had dinner here on Friday night and the place was fully booked, which is always a good sign. We chose the set menu including wines and although it was ok and wines were generously poured, things could have been quite a bit better. Kokoon does not serve an amuse and we had to wait a full hour for our... More

I have visited this restaurant a few times and have so far, had a good experience. They have a good (wide) selection in the menu, food is decent, good atmosphere, and good service. Seating is a bit limited, so you might want to book in advance.

I walked out a very satisfied man. Enjoyed the mussels with the side dishes and sauces. Service took a while but they were very busy so I'm not going to fault them on that.

Had a very tasty Vol-au-vant with chicken and fries. The stoverij looked quite good as well. Service was quite spotty as food was coming out of the kitchen in the wrong order. Otherwise, enjoyed a good lunch here.

This restaurant is just off the Muntstraat. The menu combines a couple of classic Flemish dishes and a couple of Asian inspired wok stir fries. The dishes are deceivingly simple and traditional and the focus is more on the ingredients and the taste. The result really works and reminds me why some of these dishes are classics. The service was... More
