Delicious Steak and Ribs in a cosy unpretentious atmosphere

This restaurant was recommended in several reviews by previous occupants of the apartment we stayed in Bruges. Its a local ( slightly off the beaten track) restaurant and was not that cheap by UK standards but was delicious from start to finish.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend and what a great recommendation. We went with another couple and to say the chaps enjoyed their steak is an under statement. If you want to see a grown man cry over amazing food then this is the place for you. Its a small local restaurant, with friendly owner and staff.... More

We went to Bruges for my Birthday weekend and friends suggested we try this lovely restaurant. We had the best seat in teh house, right next to the big open bbq, where the food is cooked. We chose the reasonably priced set menu, which included different beers to match the food. I have to say, I had one of the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our host as somewhere the locals go for good food. Good tip - Excellently cooked meat in a small cozy restaurant off the tourist trap in bruges. This was by far the best meal we had in Bruges. Everywhere else felt like we were just another one in a line of travellers. Here... More

Extremely helpful and friendly staff. The restaurant had a good ambience, and character decore. We sat by an open fire on a chilly evening whilst our food was cooked in front of us which was lovely. The staff recommended beer,spoke excellent English and nothing was to much trouble.The snails were wonderful as was the steak, the ribs were also good.I... More

It was our first visit after their winter holidays during which the owners have given the interior some small changes. Don't worry, your dinner will still take place in a cozy atmosphere among a mix of locals and tourists. That is, if you have made a reservation, as without one, you're likely to arrive finding no table is available anymore.... More

It was our third visit and still wonderfull. Great food & service cooked in front of you. We had difficulty in booking via the internet and needed a phone call to get the table booked, but it was worth the effort. I would highly recommend this restaurant , not the usually tourist venue.

It's a little walk, it's a little place, it's a limited menu and they fulfil it wonderfully. Set menu with beer to accompany the courses was a really great choice but even if you don't have the set menu they are knowledgeable and will suggest beers to go with your courses. The staff are warm, tentative and observant. This was... More

Having read reviews on Trip Advisor about this restaurant, my husband and I decided to visit and were so pleased we did although we didn't realise you had to book and therefore had to book for the next evening. The hospitality and excellent food made for a very enjoyable evening. I would strongly recommend this restaurant.

Food is basic but very tasty, cooked on an open fire in the tavern. Service was lovely, with special beers chosen for us for each course. We loved it. Nice for a cold winter evening, and worth the walk.
