We had duck and salmon on a cold rainy night. The food. was great and the fire added warmth on a cold night. The price was reasonable for what we ordered.

Excellent Restaurant in pleasant surroundings by the canal. Delicious canapes, would recommend the salmon with mousseline sauce & rack of lamb. Desserts were lovely - sorbets with fruit sauces beautifully presented.

With the help of our innkeeper, we got reservations on a busy night. It isn't in the town centre but a nice, pretty area to walk around. The food, wine, and service were excellent. The prices are what one would expect of a very nice restaurant. Very enjoyable and I highly recommend it.

On my first visit I had the Monkfish, shrimp croquettes and the best salad I've ever eaten, the Lukewarm Goat Cheese on a Crusty Salad. This salad was a base of nice greens with a piece of toast made from bread so fine it was like cake, toasted or baked in an oven so that it was evenly crunchy and... More

... but you won't be clipped here. The food, the wine, the service, the venue are all superb. Our meal here was a highlight of our visit to Belgium. We happened to be in Brugge around the May Day holiday, so many places we wanted to eat were booked solid. Fortunately, our wizard innkeeper got us reservations here. It isn't... More

We had an absolutely great dinner here! It was great to be able to sit so close to the water. The sole was perfectly cooked and really fresh! Will definitely be back some day soon!

If only this place were round the corner! The ambiance is like an old-fashioned inn, with tables arranged more or less around the open fire, so you can see your food being grilled. The meat and fish are excellent. The cooking is not fancy, but the products are very good quality and the cooking allows them to speak for themselves.... More

I was recommended this family owned bistro by my B&B host nearby. Located at the corner of a bridge along the canal it provided another beautiful place to have dinner. I ordered only the main course of grilled duck (rare) with a raspberry sauce with beans and croquettes. One of the best bistro meals I've had the fortune to dine... More
