Excellent discovery. Such a wonderful evening. While tourist spots inside Bruges are packed, this hidden gem close by is worth the trip. Delicious food, perfectly prepared. Wonderful service. We'll definitely return.

For a family lunch this restaurant was chosen on the basis of the good price offered for a three course meal including wines. After a first fish course, there was a choice for the main course between fish or meat. Both were served with vegetables and not with the common ordinary fries. The white wine was Ok but the red...

Which means that the food was ok (not great) but the overall restaurant is lacking a good portion of positive vibes. And is this case we are talking about welcoming, serving, interior and comfort.

Very fresh food. Nice looking dishes. The portions are really too small and look rather like tapas quantities than a tree course menu. Wines are also too expensive inluding a simple table wine costs more than the menu itself.
