A very small cosy restaurant with big character, ambiance and nice staff. Smoked salmon starter was just that - no lemon or black pepper and quite expensive for what it was. Pork cheek was delicious as was the sole (and you get three fillets). Best frites in Bruges (surprisingly poor elsewhere!). Didn't have dessert but house wine was good. Worth... More

We had mussels and pork cheek stew: loved both. Nice cozy decor, near city centre, good service (knowledgeable waiter, short waiting time). Good value for money, we would recommend this place.

This lovely restaurant was a stones throw from our hotel. We dined here on our last night in Bruges and we saved the best till last. Great choice of dishes at reasonable prices. The staff were very attentive and we were lucky enough to have the top room to ourselves. The chilli lobster was amazing and the steak perfectly cooked.... More

TThoroughly enjoyed this little place both for its menu and the atmosphere. Small family run bistro tuns out an amazing dinner. We enjoyed a very succulent sole in butter sauce and right down to the bones it was perfect. Give it a try if you're in the neighborhood, search it out if you aren't.

We had dinner here on a Wednesday evening - really great bistro menu (fabulous moules and frittes!), and reasonably priced by Bruges standards. The service was great - the manager (owner?) was really welcoming and spoke really good English too..., its well worth booking a table in advance as it appears to be a really popular restaurant with the locals...

Medium size restaurant not far from the main square. The service is excellent, very friendly & attentive. I had Flemish Pork cheek stew & my wife had the shrimp salad. Both were very nice & decent portions. The house chardonnay was very nice & I had one of the several belgian beers (Orval). The only thing they could improve is... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful, having to switch languages at almost every table. The food was good Belgian food. I had the mussels with a cream sauce, extremely good and the lemon sole was excellent. Home made chocolate mousse and the apple pie were also very good. Felt the price was extremely reasonable.

This was on the same street as our hotel and recommended in the travel guide we were using. A very small, intimate restaurant with a cosy feel and great food. The menu does not have much on it and it is pricy but definitely worth it. I has the sea plaice with a lemon sauce and mashed potato and it... More
