Very touristic place. Lousy coffee but expensive. The staff quite indifferent. Doesn't worth the money. Never again.

Eaten here a few times. The standard is always excellent. Good sunny outdoor seating as well as inside. Small restaurant highly recommended.

We got at this restaurant by chance: We arrived late in Bruges and did not have the time to properly look for a good place to eat. We went to a very good restaurant that happened to be full, so we went for a exploratory walk across the Old Bruges. At the small square behind the Vismarkt, all the restaurants... More

We visited this place after a good stroll in Brugge. Beer was ordered and we decided to tryout four different flavors of Mussel's. This was a good choice! Every one enjoyed the meal and this was superb quality "best mussels ever"

This is a typical Bruges restaurant with all the staples - mussels, Flemish stew, etc. We enjoyed the mussels. The provencal mussels were especially delicious. The garlic mussels were a bit bland, though.

We received very terrible service. The food was ok. They require all guests to order at least 1 dish and 1 drink, cannot just sit. The manner of waiters is very rude.

This restaurant is still using the old tourist trap ethos that the diners won't return anyway so reputation doesn't matter. They need to wake up to the fact we can all share our reviews on TripAdvisor! I wish we'd had time to check reviews before we ducked in out of the cold. The food was tasty enough but nothing to...

I wished we stayed longer in Bruges. The place is very charming. This is where you can get excellent chocolates to bring home..that is if it lasts. We kept on eating all the way. We had the best mussels and beer here too.

First and second choices from the menu weren't available but Flemish stew was good. Friendly service but mostly just an average experience. There are many much better options nearby

We were walk in customers, no reservation, on a cold wet night. The greeting was friendly and the inside of the restaurant, we thought, was very pretty. The Flemish beef stew was good, quite tasty, and the chips were very good! We thought the meal was reasonably priced but the drinks and extras were expensive but this was our first... More
