We loved this place. We went there three evenings in a row. It was just around the corner from our hotel, the prices are reasonable, the staff are cheerful and competent, and the food was satisfying.

Terrible food. Rude waitress. Expensive. The light is so dim that we had to use our phones to illuminate the menus. The plates are even worse. The only thing that was OK was the curry. Eat somwhere else

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, especially in the evening. We were sat in the conservatory and it was warm and well-lit. The food was amazing - definitely have their famous spaghetti! As a vegetarian, they do a veggie spaghetti too which was great considering other Bruges restaurants are very meat-centric. We ordered 4 of the spaghettis and the waiters... More

The most friendly staff in Bruges. I was expecting tradicional Local food, however they only have 5 dishes on the Menu. A quick look around, everyone were eating spaghettis, so we ordered spaghettis. They were so nice and tasty. The staff were very friendly. Can you believe that they don't have frites potatoes :@ ? I would recommend.

Anyone who has seen one of our favourite movies, "In Bruges," will know of the Koningen Astrid park. (Sorry, no alcoves!) Right opposite the park entrance is the excellent bar/restauant "L'Estaminet." Just far enough from the tourist centre of Bruges to be frequented by mostly local people, and just a short walk from our B&B, this cheery little place has... More

Popped in on a recommendation by our Walking Tour guide after we asked for a local's place for traditional food & a true Brugges experience. And we're definitely glad we did! The place was full (always a good sign), but the barman created some space for us at the bar so that we could come in out of the cold... More

I love this place, it's tiny when the summer terrace isn't placed but when it is it is big enough! I love all the foods, especially the lasagna diablo and the chilli con carne ! I often have to contain myself from going on a weekly base !

Thank honiahvka
