Only 100 metres or so along the street from Alegria Hotel. Very good food, well presented, and good service, but do book if possible. What a pleasure to have a meal not accompanied by intrusive, awful music.

Without a reservation, we had to get in right on opening to get a table at what is deservedly a very popular dinner choice. Quite small, apparently family-run and with generous portions of truly delicious Flemish food and good local beers. The goat's cheese salad...More
