Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

We arrived in Aalter full of anticipation of a tough weekend ahead. This restaurant was around the corner from our hotel, The Orchidee.

We needed a hearty meal the night before embarking on the We Ride Flanders event.

It was busy with plenty of others cyclists seeking the same carb loading food. A large group had arrived before us which slowed the service a little but once we got going everything was very good.

The minestrone soup very hearty followed by pizzas, carbonara pasta and lasagna - no complaints with any. Deserts were all fresh out of the freezer so not very exciting.

The evening ended with a complimentary limoncello which was a nice touch.

We arrived a little bit before six and we were not aware of it. So we walked into the restaurant and we were 'welcomed' in a very rude way. The owner told us that the restaurant was closed and that it would be open at six so we should go away. So we did. We have been here before and the women that are serving are very kind, but the way we were treated now left us with a very bad feeling. He could have said that we were a bit too early and that we had to wait a bit, if he was smart he could have asked what we would like to drink wile waiting for that couple of minutes before opening... The positive thing is that we ended up in another pizzeria in Aalter where we were welcomed very friendly and where we had a good time. Pity for the owner, but he lost some good clients.

Just around the corner from the BW ate here as easy to find. Don't expect anything flash, but what you do get is well prepared and good value for money.

We stayed at nearby Best Western and had dinner here as it was nearest restaurant and several in main square were shut. Appeared to be used by locals which is always a good sign. Not the most authentic Italian we have ever been to ( Cheesy potato croquettes never graced the streets of Florence !) but good honest food with friendly service and a complimentary Italian drink with the bill , always a nice touch. Appears to sell takeaway pizza from oven at front of restaurant. Good for no frills , reasonably priced food and drink.

We went to this restaurant and waited 45 minutes for our food which we wouldn't have minded if it was worth the wait. The calzone was made up of tinned tomatoes and what can only be described as plastic ham meaning it was incredibly soggy and difficult to stomach. The table next to us had issues with the drinks being a different size every time they ordered them. Would not return.
