This little restaurant is very central and very cosy - maybe a little touristic. We ordered mussels and fries and, while we waited, we got a small cauliflower soup (an amuse-bouche from the chef). After a rather long wait, a steaming bowl of mussels arrived, accompanied with very tasty fries. They bring the fries one portion at a time, so... More

Its not always easy to find good food in Bruges but my wife's braised pork cheek was rated her best ever restaurant dish. The rest of our group had moules & I had a nice chicken dish. Good beer list too. Highly recommended & seemed authentic with the chef being the husband of the waitress/hostess.

We had a lovely dinner here - nice cosy quaint place with tasty food and great friendly service. It was our first meal in Bruges and we were not disappointed.

We took a chance and didn't book but were the only diners in the restaurant at 8pm. We were greeted by friendly waiters that were quite attentive throughout the meal without overdoing it. Generally the service was good even though we were left to our own devices at the end and had to find our own coats etc. We were... More

I am so happy we made the decision to eat in this restaurant. The food was some of the best I've ever had in a restaurant. They have a rather small menu, but both the dishes me and my partner ordered were fantastically good. I see some reviewers saying that it's a bit pricey, but honestly, a complete dish is... More

Lovely restaurant close to the main square. Local stew was great, would recommend. Another member of the party had steak which was also good. Cozy restaurant with nice relaxed atmosphere.

Stumbled across this cosy Belgian restaurant close to the Markt. Although not cheap worth every penny. The mussels were delicious. They came as either marinere, with white wine, with garlic or with cream. We usually like them with white wine AND garlic AND cream. This didn't cause a problem for the chef. He made the combination as we had wished... More

Great restaurant , very good food prepared with fresh ingredients , served in an optimal way. But only one mistake( only for my point of view) dishes too fat!!! With a lot of sauces and greases. Nowdays are preferable dishes with less fats. But afterall i advice this place for any kind of dinner: romantic, social, business ecc ecc.

Good food and good service in a restaurant that has atmosphere but with so many places to eat in Bruges, this is not good value. Everywhere is priced to make the most of the captive tourist market. Could be an excellent restaurant if it was better value or created a more imaginative menu.
