Great Little Restaurant

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The people are very friendly and attentive. The menu is large and varied and there were lots of people of different nationalities in the restaurant. I had a beer and Croque Boem Boem (essentially a grilled ham and cheese sandwich with bolognese sauce) and a salad... read more

Stopped by on a long cycle ride by chance & what a find. The beer list made 128 beers with 125 available at the time of our visit. The menu ranged from light snacks right through to steaks & everything in-between. I had the Stoofvlees (Flemish beef stew) & my wife the chicken Vol-au-Vont both were of the best quality.... More

We came here for a mid morning snack before visiting the museum. Lively atmosphere, historic building, nice fresh sandwiches and cake.

Stopped here for pre-planned lunch on our coach tour. Were provided with lovely Belgian beer and the most fabulous lunch of cheese, ham, bread and salad. The cheese was Passchendaele and was one of the best cheeses we have ever tasted (so wonderful we just had to buy some in Ypres before returning to England), local ham that was so... More

This is opposite the excellent Passchendale Museum. From the ouside it looks drab, and the inside maybe a bit too tidy, almost school canteenish. But then the menu (in Flemish but easy to work out) comes and you discover 126 different beers. The food is straight forward but absolutely excellent and delivered very quickly. Thi is the ideal place for... More

The atmosphere of this old style village meeting place brought me back to the 1970's including the menu with typical Flemish food and a superb choice of Belgian beers. Located 200 yds from the large World War 1 museum it is a very nice place to have a brasserie meal. Prices are very reasonable for such a busy tourist location... More

Lovely resurant opposite the Paschendale Muesum. Food was very good. Excellant homemade burgers. Ideal for a lunchtime meal. Approx £30 for 2. But excellant quality & service.
