A wonderful location in the square. A little more than the other restaurants in the square but not by much and well worth it. Menu is pretty stable thank heavens which means the Flemish stew is always available! Think 80 euro was our last bill...More

First visit in 10 years or so was a revelation. Beautifully re-furbished and with a great menu. Service was slick and professional. Eat here..

Great mussels - though too big a portion. Perhaps they could cut the size and the price down (about €26). But Ypres is expensive. Carbonade was a bit sweet for my taste. Desserts were pretty average.

Post attending the ceremony we ate and drank well before our massive charity ride home. Wonderful service, impeccable English speaking, good rapport with the staff. Swift and accurate service. Great food mixture of steak and muscles. Great beer as you would expect. We shall return.

Group of ten called after the gate Ceremony. Service was quick even though the place was busy and food was excellent. Stayed the rest of the evening and were well looked after.

We have used this restaurant many times over the past 15 years but today was such a disappointment. Good food ruined by cramped surroundings, although there were many empty tables, poor service, no air conditioning, and flies!

Used to be a must place to go when in Ypres. However the great food was ruined by poor service. We were left to sit for ages without menu. Pre dinner drinks were served after the starter was served. Had to ask a second time...More
