This place has the best ribs I have ever had! We went for the slow cooked ribs with a spicy barbecue sauce paired with local beers. The sauce was perfect, the ribs tender and tasty, and the coleslaw a feast for the palate. Accompanied by the local beer, the flavours were perfectly balanced, and the meal went beyond my expectations... More

Get the slow-cooked ribs. Have some Belgian beers. Enjoy life. It's pretty simple. The service was great as well. Evidently you need to book early to get in here though

Absolutely the most amazing ribs I've ever eaten (and I've eaten a lot!). Didn't have a starter (why would you when it's all you can eat ribs??), first rack I had was the spicy barbecue sauce (my absolute favourite) and the waiter said not to eat the chilli seeds (which I did and loved 😂), 2nd rack was the house...

Wow! This place is a must go to if you are in Bruges. Make sure you book though, very popular even midweek Creator of the house sauce: beer and chocolate is a genius.... they have everything perfect here. Service, beer and ribs are outstanding.

This isn't really traditional Bruges Dining, rather, it combines good well prepared meat, fries and a good variety of the local and not so local beers. My partner went to try the beer and chocolate sauce on the ribs which was well prepared. It wasn't overtly beer or chocolate, but combined the two to make an interesting counterpoint to ribs...

Place was amazing. Although I was defeated after 1 and a half racks, my husband managed to pack a few away. Staff were friendly and food was delicious. Must go to when in Brugge.

Great food, beer and service! We made a reservation and I would recommend doing so as it was really busy even on a Monday evening. The beer and chocolate ribs, whoever created them deserves an award!!!

We walked here one night and it was fully booked but they offered us a table by the bar. The service, staff and food all really good. My partner had all the ribs - really enjoyed them - not fatty - beautiful ribs.

A friendly, privately run restaurant, close to the centre of Bruges. Specialising in a volonte (all you can eat) spare ribs which can be ordered succulently slow-cooked or tradional barbequed for that extra bite! Other specialities on our menu include fajitas, as well as excellent T-Bone and Rib-eye steaks. All this can be washed down with some of the regions finest beers.
