9 of us went there on Saturday 26th November, recommended and booked by our hotel. Table was ready for us. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Food was great especially the Flemish Stew and Meatballs. Would recommend this restaurant it was lively atmosphere. Shame about the weird couple sat on table beside us.

Went for a meal here after a wonderful day visiting the Flanders fields war memorials & cemeteries. We were waiting for the Last Post. This looked a busy interesting place. Don't be fooled. I asked about the meatballs - specifically I asked what pasta came with them - as there was an option of potatoes. I was told tagliatelle. The... More

Les Halles is a cross between a wine bar & a pub in the main square of Ypres. Service was a little slow for dinner but the upside was a wide selection of Belgian beers, a fairly comprehensive menu and reasonable prices.

We were recommended to Les Halles by our hotel for a late lunch. A busy place all afternoon (and evening when we walked past). Large portions of tapas (we should have ordered less). Nice quality and good service

We were surprised by the welcome and service received at such a busy time of day. Menu was in English but our waiter explain dishes to us his English was excellent as was the service he gave us. Our drinks came very quickly along with cutlery and it was a very reasonable waiting time for our food to be served.... More

We we visiting Ypres and stopped in at Marktcafe Les Halles for lunch. Ordered the Rebel burger (cheese bacon cocktail sauce and two good size patties and fries) that and two cokes was 36 euro. Not the cheapest burger but certainly one of the best we have had in years. Good service and a nice atmosphere rounded off a superb... More

We picked this at random and throughly enjoyed the beef cheeks plus a selection of tapas. Everything was tasty and in big portions. The onion soup was fab. A Good selection of beers to choose from and we would recommend the cherry kriek and the red brown sour beer. You will not go wrong with choosing this as an affordable... More

Tow of us popped in for a late lunch while passing visiting Ypres to see the Menin Gate. Even mid afternoon it was busy which was a good sign. I chose the meatballs with fries while my partner had a burger. The portion sizes were large and the service super speedy. The meal was delicious, the beer excellent and the... More

Visited this place on a few ocassions, always take from the tapas menu, loads to choose from, hot or cold, generous portions make it easy to order too much, I would recommend about 5 assorted plates for two people. Can get a bit noisy as it fills up in the evening.
