Four of us went for the traditional Belgium stew option, which came with french fries (topped up when we ran out) for 21 euros (£19) each. The stew was very good, and the setting is cosy, but not a cheap option.

Limited selection of traditional flemish dishes. Stews, pots etc. Very abundant portions (chicken was...an entire chicken, rabbit was, basically, an entire rabbit) but you must take a main course for each one at the table. Prices seemed ridiculously expensive at first (che cheapest main course was 16 Euros with average at 25 (21/28) but then we saw that every restaurant... More

My husband and I were so impressed with this place that we went back again two visits in one weekend. It's good traditional food... Quite pricey but worth it.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel receptionist. We went for the two meal menus, to keep the costs to minimum, since it is a very expensive place. We had so much food, we were not able to finish all of it. The starter was amazing in both menus, then the mains which were massive were also great... More

The beef stew was so good be prepared for a lot of food. One person in a our party tried a chicken soup stew dish and it was... More

Great stew, endless well cooked fries, chased down with local beer all made for an enjoyable evening at this quaint restaurant on a quiet central side street. A must for a taste of food Bruges style.

The restaurant is a very nice place with good service and kind staff. The food is very tasty and made with a lot of feeling. We had beef stew, chicken and sirloin beef and they were all very good. Prices are fair.

We saw this cute little place down the side street one block from our hotel (Dukes' Palace) and decided to give it a try. What an adorable space! Cozy, warm, lots of atmosphere! My husband had the vol-au-vent and I had the Flemish stew...most delectable hunk of meat I've ever eaten! Seemed like an endless pot, huge portions. Our waiter... More

I love eel, while my femme adores rabbit stew.....err, what's up duck?. They are all served in iron pots and skillets. There's plenty of traditional fare and vintage Flemish specialities,like our choices,all served cheek by jowl while seated tight and cluttered. The food comes in huge proportions and you can have unlimited fries from the hovering "fries angel",who refills your... More

Quick summary: very Flemish specialties, wide selection of Belgian beers. Tight seating in a charming restaurant. Service was efficient but brusque. We enjoyed dinners that included rabbit stew and sausage/potato/cabbage specialties. A "fries angel" continues to re-supply very good French fries. The green salads that we started with had a nice assortment of fresh greens. Good beer on tap; wine... More
