Firstly, you must make a booking before coming! As we sat warm and relaxed in our seats, we saw people being turned back out into the cold all night because there just wasn't any room. The restaurant itself is beautiful! You can feel its history. And the food, well the food is the reason for going and it did not... More

We regularly visit this charming restaurant in Bruges and have been returning here for about 10 years. It is so nice we sometimes just come over from England for the day just to have a meal there. The traditional Flemish food is always delicious, very generous portions and we have tried most of the menu. The chicken waterzooi and the... More

We were a bit worried that the place could be a bit more touristic that but I interior was so magical we decide to take the shoot. And we were rewarded with a mouthwatering... More

Visited December 2014 on recommendation from the hotel we were staying at. Could not get in the first night but managed to get a reservation for the following evening. So glad we did. The food was delicious, the Waterzooi (a stew of fish, potatoes, celery, onions, cream etc) was one of the best meals I have had in a restaurant... More

my husband and I tried this restaurant based on the recommendation of the manager of the B&B (B&B 1669) we were staying. I believe the manager, Katalina, is French, she told us this is the restaurant she'd visit when she has a night out with her husband. She did warn us that reservation is a must for this restaurant. So... More

Visited on a cold winter night in Jan'15. We were a party of 4 adults who had booked earlier in the evening. By the time we returned at 19:30 the restaurant was nearly full and we were shown to our table. The tables were tiny and were packed into a series of small rooms. Quite quaint, but not very practical.... More

We were attracted to this restaurant by its cozy appearance and especially by the fireplace after walking around the streets of Bruges for a couple of hours. As soon as we were seated the fire inexplicably died -- and when we asked about it we were told in the rudest possible manner by the manager that he could do nothing... More

The atmosphere is perfect to feel like you're getting the "Belgian experience" but this restaurant has very strict rules that frankly if I would have known about beforehand, would not have gone. No one at the table is allowed to share. Every person at the table MUST order a main dish. You can order a starter dish with an upcharge... More

We popped in mid afternoon for coffee and a snack. I ordered a waffles, my wife ordered a pancake, waffles came quite quickly, the pancake didnt. So we asked where it was, and the kitchen didnt know about the order. I understand mistakes can happen, but it was the lack of apology and the assumption that we were to blame... More

We visited this place upon recommendation of the Dali Museum receptionists who was a local. Plus's - the ambiance & deco was great, food between good & average & too big. Service- impersonal & mechanical to the point of rudeness. We had wanted to share some of the courses & the waiter advised that it was not allowed. In the... More
