This is a hidden gem just a few steps from the Menin Gate. Surprising Menu with limited choices, but oh so nicely cooked! Very friendly & jazzy atmosphere. I keep recommending it to others and whenever we find time for an enjoyable lunch or dinner,...More

Excellent in every way. Service, food, and value all first class. I had the ham salad and my wife, the vegetarian quiche. Both recommended. Very handy to Mennin Gate.

Lovely Kristof, the owner of this fine restaurant, coped brilliantly with a crowd of 22 Brit cyclists who wanted beer and food, food, food. And we got what we wanted, and it was lovely food too. Gorgeous quiche, imaginative main courses and lovely ice creams...More

Small friendly bar and eatery. Good food drinks and prices. 4 of us ate here and much cheaper than round the square and possibly better quality

This place is a little gem in Ypres. The location is a bit off the beaten track but still very much in the centre. The owners Kristof and Inge are very friendly and there's a nice selection of beers to choose from. You also can...More
