We had wonderful service and excellent Belgian style food at De Waterpoort. A lovely shaded patio for outdoor dining and also beautiful indoor setting. I highly recommend the Kasskroketten that comes with Belgian fries and a salad complete with berries and currents. Dinner is served after 6:00 pm.

We were staying in Ypres for 3 nights. The 27th being my birthday and wanting to go somewhere special, our hotel recommended the Waterpoort and made a reservation for us for 8.30.
