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.

JUst across the road from the Museum buildings you will find this hostelry which serves wonderful Flemish beef stew washed down with Belgian beers & anything else you fancy; The food was good & very large portions to say the least. The staff couldn't be more friendly - worth every penny!

We attended the Last Post at Ypres and were half hoping to stumble across an open restaurant on the way back to our accommodation. We passed this one, which looked very inviting and turned around and went in. Staff were extremely friendly and the food was fabulous. Very good value, huge portions and excellent service. The restaurant was lively and... More

We stopped here after visiting the nearby Passendale museum. It was a beautiful sunny day, so sat outside and watched the seemingly endless parade of tractors passing by. We just had a quick sandwich, but the bread was fabulous, seemed like home made. The beer selection was very impressive, and the waitress was very good.
