Lunch with friends here, very nice atmosphere & good service. English speaking & helpful waitress. White aperagus starter followed by Dourade- a sea bream fish in a bed of fresh, diced tomatoes. Perfectly cooked. Dessert was strawberries & ice cream on a small meringue, very tasty. Would return.

The steak was perfectly prepared. The fish soup was outstanding. Fish main course was also beautifully prepared. We had a lovely evening. Best not to go there unless you expect to spend the whole evening there but it was worth it.

What a brilliant place this is. A family run restaurant which was very friendly and had a lovely ambiance. The food and wine were really delicious. We felt that the set menu with wine was good value for money. We travelled for 7 nights in Amsterdam, Bruges and Paris and this was definitely one of our highlights. Will definitely be... More

It is a typical restaurant in Europe. The problem being there is so little space that you can hear the conversation at the next table. There was only one server for the whole restaurant. The food was good but would of liked a more private setting for our table.

This is a quiet, family run restaurant which serves extraordinarily good food. The service is handled professionally and elegantly by, I believe, one of the owners. I can only echo what the other reviewers have said before, It's really well done, the only issue was just how expensive it was, for example, 2 entrees, 4 mains, two beers and a... More

Delicious food and attentive service. This small restaurant is owned and managed by a charming couple; he cooks and she ( suspiciously thin for a chef's wife!) handles front of house

This gem of a restaurant was recommended by our hotel. My wife and i were welcomed into this charming restaurant by our hostess and her 10 year old, charming daughter. In a restored old house in Bruges, you felt like a guest at someone's home. The menus was excellent, the food terrific and the warmth of the experience is with... More

The place is picture perfect and one of my go to places in Bruges. It seems like everything comes together, romance, perfect food and wine pairings and just a great atmosphere. What my favorite restaurant needs to be. Brava!
