Me and my fiancé been there as we were searching for something different. The owner and chef as well was very pressing about the amount of what we were about to order even the drinks. At the end we had a 70eur dinner and when we left we were so hungry we ate again. Not worth your money as the... More

Owner very pretentious and full of himself made me hope the wait would be worthwhile,... More

Food was ok but the owner is a clown not accepting any critisism. We had to wait for 2 hours before we got the first dish. Anything we asked was to much. Not recommended.

We used to go to this restaurant e few years ago and we were happy with what we got.

A small glass wine for 4.70€... We came home hungry and with... More

Spain in Bruges. The boss (chef...) Tony is a super cook, running the place as a real spanisch toreador.
