We were attracted by the attractive architecture of the restaurant and then determined that they had mussels so we were the first foursome in line for lunch. Two of us had the mussels which were fresh and delicious--especially the sauce. The other two had a special of the day or prix fixe meal--both were excellent although the boar stew was... More

Just managed to book the last 2 seats for the 8pm sitting on a Tuesday night in early December - the draughty table by the door. No matter, we had a really good meal. The North Sea fish soup tasted more Mediterranean than a typical provencal version, never mind the moules and mackerel, but was tasty nonetheless. My rare ribeye... More

Visiting Bruges with my dad and wandered through the trip advisor recommends and came across this little gem. We arrived and the staff were so pleasant and let us have a window table. We chose the menu of the day. Celeriac soup was delicious as a starter and our mains and puddings lovely. We had a couple of Belgium beers... More

Excellent food,service and ambience. Staff provide high standard of service and the decor and arrangement of the room is excellent. Food was of a very high quality and price was not unreasonable. Recommend reservation rather than turning up as it is small ish and very popular.

This restaurant is located in a small but charming period building in what may be the busiest tourist junction in Bruges. Perhaps because of this it is always full and there is a steady stream of people being turned away at the door because there is no room. Given all of the above, a lesser restaurant may be tempted to... More

We decided to book this restaurant for our last night in Bruges and are so glad we did. The restaurant is cosy and decorated in a lovely way with great views from each window. We did the 18 Euro set menu which included 3 courses and it was all delicious. We had soup, half chicken and profiteroles. I found Bruges... More

Try the Flemish Stew, the stew was perfect, the beef was very tender and really tasty. Best meal I had on this visit to Bruges. Nice and friendly service also. Would recommend.

What a wonderful place. Small intimate warm and inviting. Went with my husband, we both had the Dover sole meunière which was excellent. The service was lovely with all staff chatty and knowledgeable about the food and how it is cooked. We were particularly taken with the waitress who helped us decipher the Flemish menu version because we wanted to... More
