As you will see from other blogs , I'm not often giving out poor marks for restaurants. But this place was truly awful. The manager and his staff are obviously very greedy chaps as they wouldn't let us have a place for 5. With only 4 eating people eating. My youngest son was feeling a bit under the weather so... More

A friend and I were wandering around looking for a non-touristy place to have dinner before catching the train back to Brussels. We lucked out in finding this place! It was the best meal I had in Belgium! And the atmosphere was wonderful! Such a quaint little place off of the beaten path! If I ever make it back to... More

Recommended by the Best Western Hotel Weinberugge and I must say it was excellent. What a lovely restaurant. Full of character and ambience. The farmhouse pate was fantastic and unusual. The Flemish beef stew and chips with Apple sauce sounds unusual but was a delight. The wine menu is extensive and the beer list vast as well. I would definitely... More

We visited with freinds, the restaurant was full, the service was slow but the atmosphere was very relaxed, the oly down side was that it was rather cramped but the food made it all worthwhile it was excellent and very large portions.

My husband won't stop talking about this place, he loved it so much. And so did I! The service was impeccable, the food was nothing short of excellent. We had the flemish beef stew and the rabbit stew, and shared a salad to start. The restaurant is cozy and pleasant, and your table feels private even with all of the... More

My husband and I went for dinner and had the Flemish beef stew. It was very hearty and we left stuffed. We highly recommend reservations as they turned away many or made them a reservation for the next night. They are closed on Monday. Several variations of stews (beef, rabbit or chicken) along with fish and mussels. Served with all... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel when we said that we wanted to taste some local cuisine. It was a small hidden cafe pretty much in the middle of town which was clearly very popular. When we were recommended it we were told that they did very large portions and I fear that we didn't take this seriously... More

This is a must eat at restaurant. 3 of us ate the delicious Flemish Beef Stew (one son had the Rabbit stew which he also enjoyed with cherry beer and prunes). The portions are very generous and they come around and fill you up with fantastic French fries, as much as you want. Of course they also serve the famous... More

My wife and I both absolutely loved this restaurant. We had one of their set menus and we were not disappointed. The stew was delicious, with tender beef, and a fantastic gravy. They have an amazing beer selection and service was good.

When you are Bruges, don't miss this restaurant which serves authentic Flemish cuisine. The place is like a small house converted to a restaurant and the ambience is really good. You can pick also some souvenirs if you want. The quality of the food is excellent and worth the cost. They have a variety of selection for the beers.
