Excellent restaurant, very cosy. The food was excellent we all ordered the shrimp croquettes followed by the traditional Flemish beef stew. Be warned, it's a lot of food, with hindsight we only needed the main course. Served with fries (as almost everything is) and bread, it's a plentiful dish. Very rich but absolutely delicious. It's not cheap but nowhere is... More

What a great experience - the cosy restaurant and delicious foods are a winning combination. The Flemish stew is absolutely delicious, but don't eat all day beforehand as it's huge! Service is friendly but on the slow side because everything is cooked from scratch so don't compare it to other local restaurants.

I went here last year on the same day(1. january), because this is one of few places that are open on 1. january, this time because I wanted to come back. We even got the same waiter, and he was as rude as last year, loved it! First of beware! This place makes it's dishes from scratch AND that means... More

Stumbled upon this adorable restaurant in an alley and had to go in for a treat. I had the waffle with chocolate sauce and hot tea. The waffle was hot, crispy and delicious. My hubby had a mug of local beer. The tab was €18. Very cute inside and quite cozy. Didn't have a meal, but I would go back... More

I was drawn to this restaurant by the lovely setting and chintzy interior. Obviously a Friday night was not the right might to go. Having looked aghast at the idea that I wanted to eat alone I was placed at first one table and then another. As a slow food restaurant and as it was a busy night I accepted... More

We discovered this restaurant by accident & were lucky enough to get a table. Cosy atmosphere, friendly staff & good value. I had the stew which was really tasty with traditional fries. Very generous portions. Would highly recommend.

This beautiful Flemish restaurant hidden just off a pedestrianised street is an absolute MUST if you are visiting Bruges. Beautiful food, fabulous portions so don't have a starter. Lovely service. This was the most tasty food I'd eaten in a LONG time... I brought their postcard home and am finally getting round to posting. It would have been easier to... More

I was looking for a place that combined local cuisine with a good selection of Belgium beer. I chose correctly! The beer I had was the Basilius an ale brewed in Brugge. Superb! The meal was the Flemish beef stew - very rich but very tender and tasty and I am sure the Heart Foundation would not endorse the dish... More

Not the cheapest for a Flemish stew but definitely the best tasting and worth the extra few quid. Cute, quirky, generous portions and very tasty. We went at lunchtime and it was busy but service was fine. Nice spot away from the main tourist drag. Could be quite romantic in the evening I would expect. Would recommend you visit.
