After visiting The Last Post service at the Menin Gate this appeared to be the nearest restaurant for an evening meal, located right near the Flanders Field Musuem. The service was good and we enjoyed our steaks which were cooked perfectly. If in Ypres it's worth a visit and has a pleasant ambience.

Sadly, like all the Grote Markt restaurants (now that Old Tom's has been hideously renovated), with a bland modern, characterless interior, De Trompet nevertheless serves good food, is reasonably priced and has friendly service. After a Menin Gate ceremony on a freezing January evening, we enjoyed their excellent rare steak, calamari and frites. Good Languedoc at €4 a glass. The... More

Myself & 4 friends visited De Trompet on a very wet Friday evening in September 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food and service was excellent

The 3 of us had the most exceptional meal when we ate here on a busy Saturday. The staff were great being friendly, courteous and professional. The food was excellent served hot and perfectly. We sat outside in the cool night air where the heaters kept the slight chill off. Great value for a great price with all round greatness

Having visited De Trompet last year when we stayed in Ypres, we had little hesitation in deciding where to eat. We were more than impressed previously with the food as well as the service so made a reservation for the Friday evening. Even at 7.30pm the place was almost full and the remaining tables were also reserved. Ordered a sole... More

Good food and service. I had the Flemish stew which was very rich but very tasty. My wife had the steak which she said was lovely. All in all a decent restaurant and good prices.

The restaurant is in the main square with tables inside and out. We had a steak and frites with salad for fifteen euros which was excellent value for money. Service was impeccable.

Decent meal at a decent price. Came with a large salad. All food seemed to be reasonably priced. Don''t forget the Smoking Laws don't apply as they do in the UK. All food places are smoky if you are indoors.
