While waiting for the restaurant to open, the wonderful waitress chatted with the kids and made some excellent recommendations (including the excellent Scampi and yummy meatloaf).

This was recommended to us and we were lucky to get a table at short notice because of a cancellation. Don't be put off by the name. It is not a "diner" but a very nice restaurant serving very good quality food at reasonable prices. Service was excellent. Décor nice with an open kitchen. Recommended but book early.

Went out of their way to welcome us. Brilliant bruschetta , followed by magnificent meatloaf with rhubarb,apple sauce and mash. Generous portions, attentive service and the best cup of tea in Belgium.

Great dinner. Great service. And all at a reasonable price. The little place you like to "find" when you're on vacation.

We went here thinking (not unreasonably given the title) that this would be a Diner. It is not a Diner in any reasonable interpretation of the word other than that they serve food. Not very good food either. Avoid

Want to have very good food and service? This is the place to be! Not easy to find in Bruges, but once you are there, you wil find a small and very cosy restaurant, the service is awesome! The meatloaf with mash and panna cota as dessert..yummie! This is the place to be :-)
