We end up there after looking for few restaurants around. Yes it was Easter . Everything were full . I checked a few high rates restaurants on TripAdvisor , also on the market square. Some need reserviert, other were over prices. So we finally make it to here . The welcome guy did a good job. We also tired from looking around . When I was in I checked this restaurant and I saw they have 229 very bad comments already . But anyway I come in only because they sell mussels too,for 20€ , quite fresh. My Husband had a chicken dish -was ok but the sauce is tasteless for 19.5€. Well , to be honest we wouldn't mind to pay if the chicken is special like muscles. But compare with other restaurants there,prices were same .A bit high - but what you can do - they are in the center .About the atmosphere , it's warm and quite . The service was ok . At least they can speak many languages .so overall ,our experience were not too bad. Hope they can have them self out of this bad rates soon .

Thank Bui P

First of all, this restaurant is a horrendous tourist trap. The waiter that stands outside luring people in instead of serving customers is an obvious bad sign. Not to mention that he lost interest the minute we came inside.

I ordered a smoked salmon baguette and chips. It was pretty pathetic, with a tiny bit of onion and you could tell the salmon was of very poor quality. Expecting to pay maybe €7 for my meal, the bill, which included 4 little baguettes/sandwiches came to €90!

The service was fine but slow. We basically got ignored, no one checked on us, and the only interaction we got was when we were ordering and paying.

The food my family ordered, a croque monsieur and a ham baguette, were edible but that was about it. The croque monsieur was literally a ham and cheese toastie. Yet we were charged so much for such awful quality food. Beer was also about €9 for a medium.

Avoid this place like the plague. Don't be fooled by the pushy waiter outside offering an English menu. Overpriced, bad quality food. There are so many nicer places to eat in Bruges.

Our first night in Bruges we were invited into this restaurant by the waiter who was quick to inform us that he welcomed dogs. We opted for the 21 euro, three course menu that included tomato soup starter, chicken in mushroom sauce and vol au vent or flemish beef stew (both served with fries) and ice cream and belgian chocolate sauce for desert. A bottle of Cote de Rhone (red wine) washed down a pleasant meal, nicely. Poppy enjoyed her bowl of fresh water and a few scraps of meat from our plates.

Bad service .. don't even bother. Good very expensive and they are only interested until you come inside.

Enticed in by a good waiter who was very professional and friendly. Looking for something better than the tourist rubbish that is served in the main squares, we settled on the seafood platter for 2. It arrived with fireworks on top but it wasn't just all show. Clams, mussels, cockles, razor clams, two types of king prawns, crabs, crayfish and lobster, all perfect and very tasty. Downside was when we got the bill.....hugely over-priced. We enjoyed it as a treat but wouldn't eat there often.
