We were 4 people, male and female, looking for a light lunch but the waiter/chef/owner categorically stated we must have a main meal as this was a restaurant. He was impolite and waved us out immediately. He had shown us upstairs to a table, a little squashed on the corner, and taken orders for... read more

Nice restaurant with upstairs seating. Served by some enthusiastic and friendly staff. However the food wasnt great value or quality. Steak costs 28 Euros and wasn't a great piece of meat.

We went here on a day trip. We didn't have enough time to really explore & find a hidden gem so we ended up in here. We already knew it would be a bit over priced just being off the main square. We had the set menu. Pate, mussels & mouse, you don't get a choice for dessert. The pate... More

Seemed to start OK with service, but as the evening draw on it was getting worse and worse - in the end everyone was waiting for their dessert. I had the mussels and was very disappointed - not enough, and no sauce. They'd probably been frozen ones. Bread was extra and the drinks were expensive. Avoid.

The waiter/owner makes Basil Fawlty look like a consummate professional... Grabbed our menus off us when I said that I didn't think I wanted a full meal but rather have a snack. Turfed out most unceremoniously! am thankful having had the opportunity to read others reviews on here.what I saw of the food it looked bland and I unexceptional.

We only went in to have the set menu as it seemed reasonable priced however you get what you pay for.... it was just OK. Waiter kept popping out for a cigarette, no atmosphere and quite dull. Staff not very attentive or friendly. Would avoid if possible.

Went here for coffee and a snack. Looked promising from the outside and the lady who appeared to be running the place was helpful without being overly welcoming. We had a great table just to the left of the door. The food was good without being exceptional and price-wise the same. You are in a tourist area and Bruges is... More

The look brood was lovely. We also ordered wafels and some tea. Nothing special about that. It was just that people didn't really seem to be too happy to have guests. No smiles, no friendly words, just the obligatory. Nice little terrace though..

this had to be the worst dining experience in our 3 week tour of Europe, The rudest waiter we have ever come across in all our travels, it seemed like we were an inconvenience to him and he seemed angry that we ordered the set menu? If he does not like tourists then he should get out of the service... More

As travel professionals we visit Brugges on a regular basis. We like to try different places each time & can honestly say this restaurant is the worst we have ever been too. We fancied beef stew & as it wasn't on the main menu, we opted for the set menu of the day which did include the beef stew. MISTAKE.... More
