I have visited De Heerlyckheid on several occasions and have never been anything less than impressed. Tonight was just excellent with great food all well thought out and superbly presented. I will definitely be back when next in Ypres. Highly recommend for super food ,great atmosphere and faultless service.

We were recommended this restaurant by the owner of 'Fields of Gold'. We called late afternoon and booked for the evening after the Menin Gate at 20hrs.
We both had an excellent meal, my wife had rabbit in chocolate and I had wild boar. Wine was not expensive and I had a large beer. The service was very friendly and efficient. We were made to feel welcome both by the chef and waitress. We shall return next year and have no regret in recommending this restaurant. We have eaten in a number of high class restaurants that charge the earth and this is a high class restaurant for service and food and the cost does not reflect the quality

After a Wreath Laying Service at the Menin Gate, we returned to our Hotel and an Evening of Comeraderie and Beautiful Food and Drink in the Centre of Ypres. Most of our Party of 8 were particularly hungry after a Day of Battlefield Visits and chose to Dine in our Hotel, we were not disappointed and the Evening turned into One to Remember with the Food of Manuel and the Attention to Detail of his Wife Sara and some Local Friends. The Food was Magnificent and capped of a Perfect Trip to Ypres.
The Quality of the Food and was matched by the Very Reasonable Price......We have already agreed to Return to both the Hotel and the Restaurant in the very near future.

Ypres is a nice place and offers a wide variety of restaurants to enjoy local food, junk food and here and there the exceptional trendy place looking for a better public. So we were told about De Heerlyckheid, we even read the reviews on tripadvisor and concluded it was worth a visit. We booked a table, recommended as it is a small restaurant and were seated in the corner. First thing we noticed, only one lady serving both the tables and managing the bar. As the place was full (I guess about 25 people eating), result was obvious, took about 15 minutes to get waited. The menu offers a limited set of choices and some suggestions, good sign. Some nice local beers and interesting gin-tonics, yummie. Upon order we got the word the cook was all by himself and it would take a while. No worries, we had time. We ordered 2 local beers and two gin tonics, some veggie crisps and a mixed platter as starter and followed the suggestion for the local beef (from a very local butcher) with coliflower fantasies. Local beer was excellent, try YPRA, gin tonics ok'ish. Mixed platter a great source of disappointment as it consisted of industrial ingredients thrown together without sense of taste (white bread with goat cheese, simple baked potato, supermarket ansjovis, chicken nugget). Vegatable crisps very fat. So came the meat, signature dish. We ordered rare and medium rare, saw the same cut and both medium rare, coliflower variations were mashed and plain, flat in taste, I do not even believe the steak was baked at the moment. The dinner took about 3,5 hours, we paid about 40 eur per person, met some very friendly restaurant owners, full of good spirits but who do not seem to understand: SIMPLE is better, try to play your own league.
