Walked around looking for a non touristy meal before I could check-in to my hotel. I found this place and it was worth walking off the beaten path. The dining room was empty except for an older couple. I got the steak medium rare with mushrooms and vegetables. It was delicious. The chef came out to ask how the meal... More

What a great find in Bruges. We arrived from a VBT Barge and Bike trip to meet friends from France and celebrate a birthday. The food and service were wonderful. Most of us had the 4-course fixed menu which also includes a chef's appetizer and sorbet. That dinner is 49 Euro, or you can opt for the 3-course for 39... More

After accidentally making a reservation with another restaurant with the same name in Antwerp, the Chef was still very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed absolute fantastic food for what we considered to be a bargain! The wine was a delight and we were very pleased with every course from the set menu. Service was splendid as you would expect. The... More

For this quality you would pay much more in another restaurant. Friendly, good wine advice. 10 minutes from the market place and known by local people. Great tapas too.

Awesome chef! Awesome friendly hostess with super suggestions!Great ambience. Cosy family feel. Brilliant decor. Away from touristy restaurants. The best meal in Bruges! The best meal we have had in a long time (and we done out a fair bit in London at least)! Worth every penny!!

Average meal. Fish a little over cooked. Boring vegetables. Expensive drinks. We were told tap water was unavailable due to a problem. We were charged 5 euros for a small bottle of water. Unimpressed.

We first tried this restaurant in Bruges two years ago and have been talking about it since. We were recently in Bruges just for one night and made a beeline for it. It was just as good as we remembered. Great taste, value and service. I'm sure we'll be back again

At a reasonable price! Far enough off the beaten path that a quiet and peaceful dinner may be enjoyed and relished. Offering both an a la carte and a three course menu there is something for everyone. Beautiful building and quiet ambience make it a lovely corner of the adult world. Did I mention the delicious food and wine?
