There are a number of similar places in the square but we like Old Tom's outside area for coffee and a bite to eat simply because of the attentive and amusing waiter. A great place to watch activity in the centre of Ypres.

My party ate here twice. The ambience in the outside seating area was very good. It was clearly family friendly. The food too was very good, but it was the excellent service from an attentive waiter which pleased us most.

Needed a lunch on Sunday 30th amid all the preparations for the evening events. This worked! Mussels excellent, steak fine, steak tartare Hert good. House white by the carafe perfectly acceptable and reasonably priced.

Not a cheap restaurant, none in Yrpes are, but for 15 Euros you can get half a cooked chicken, salad and chips or for about 20 euros a bucket of mussels that I was told were very good. Drinks will boost the price up and...More
