After a long driving I needed coffee urgently therefore I chose this restaurant as a very first place to see in Ypres and it was a good choice. Their coffee is excellent and together with yummy waffles it was a great start of my holiday.

Our party of 5 had different dishes (carbonades, pasta, croquettes). All were excellent. Service was friendly and quick. Location was perfect: enjoying the view of the market from the patio.

Excellent food. Extremely friendly waiters. We went for four nights consecutively as the food was so tasty. Big portions...lovely beer...and Simon makes the best liquor coffee I have ever tasted. A great place to eat.

I had researched places to eat before arriving in Ypres and this restaurant had been put on my list. However, even though it is on the main square (Grote Markt) its sign is hidden by parasols and canopies so it was overlooked. We booked in...More

We stumbled over this restaurant on 11th April, not sure why we chose this eatery over the masses on offer, but glad we did. The waiters were friendly and tolerated our terrible attempts of their language! (They all spoke amazing English). The weather was perfect...More

As far as I can remember the restaurant is open for most of the day with a seating area outside in the main square (Grote Markt). I should think you can order an early dinner. Enjoy - both your meal and the Menin Gate... More
