One night only in Ypres and chose here. Sat outside, beautiful evening. Fabulous service, delicious cheese croquettes to start, followed by, the famous stew for my son, beautifully rich deep gravy. Steaks for husband, daughter & me. The most delicious frites too. Absolutely gorgeous the whole evening, and of course plenty of Belgian Beer. Cannot wait to visit again this... More

A very smart restaurant located on the gros markt. Had a quick lunch on route back to Calais. Service was prompt and the food came out fairly quickly even though the place was packed. Complimentary starter of some toasts served with a tuna mayonnaise. Hubby has moules in garlic and cream sauce which he enjoyed thoroughly. Home-made mayonnaise and a... More

We came to the restaurant last year twice during a 3 day break as it was so good. Returned again this year for the weekend and couldn't wait to try it again. We were not disappointed, the ambiance the position and the delicious food. The fillet steak was perfectly cooked. Will return again next year

We arrived when the majority of clients appeared to be finishing lunch and were shown to a table whcih we had to squeeze past other tables ensuring we didn't knock over items on the tables! Once we were sat down it wasn't too bad. The decor is intriguing. Service started off being attentive but slacked off when the waiting staff... More

Very good restaurant, comfortable, modern and bright. In a perfect location on the market square. The staff seem friendly and helpful. We had a stew, which was very good - I'd recommend it. They were very accommodating of our group of over 50 people.

My wife and I were on a four night visit to Ypres, we do it every other year and while there indulge in our love of Flemish Beer, French Coffee and Flemish Stew. Sad as it might seem we have the same meal each night! Well of the four we tried Den Anker was the best. Although busy we were... More

We are visiting the area and was looking for somewhere to eat in the town centre on Sunday late afternoon. We came across this restaurant and we're very happy with our choice. The food was very good, with generous portions, good selection of beers and excellent service. We would definitely go back.

Thank Dricade1
