We popped in for a meal on 11/4. We were quickly seated, without having made a prior reservation, on their outdoor terrace - nice for the time of year. The four mains that we had: Steak - medium rare with garlic butter, well cooked (perhaps a touch under) but very good flavour Mushroom omelette - well seasoned and plenty of... More

Liked the atmosphere, but we had the most dour waiter - never cracked a smile the entire evening. Would not give us separate checks so we all had to estimate what we owed from the menu and pay in cash. So stupid. The food was surprisingly uninteresting - I had the chicken brochette - over salted and dry - my... More

We enjoyed a wonderful evening meal in this restaurant, it was quiet due to the time of year, a nice place to eat with modern facilities and spotlessly clean. Staff were very attentive and the service faultless. Recommend booking at busy periods.

After visiting The Last Post service at the Menin Gate this appeared to be the nearest restaurant for an evening meal, located right near the Flanders Field Musuem. The service was good and we enjoyed our steaks which were cooked perfectly. If in Ypres it's worth a visit and has a pleasant ambience.

Sadly, like all the Grote Markt restaurants (now that Old Tom's has been hideously renovated), with a bland modern, characterless interior, De Trompet nevertheless serves good food, is reasonably priced and has friendly service. After a Menin Gate ceremony on a freezing January evening, we enjoyed their excellent rare steak, calamari and frites. Good Languedoc at €4 a glass. The... More

Myself & 4 friends visited De Trompet on a very wet Friday evening in September 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food and service was excellent
