4 of us ate here on the second night of our 4 night stay. Everything about it was faultless! The welcome, the service,the atmosphere, the food, the wine... even the price! It was by far the best meal during our break. Be warned - it's closed on Mondays! (We returned for a second experience on our last night, and were... More

Well I'm not sure if going to Bruge during the first two weeks of the New Year is smart. Thing is, these guys head off on holiday during this period, having just done a very busy Holiday season. So, we were fortunate that this restaurant was open, and secondly, that we drifted across the street from our hotel to it.... More

It's a tradition that we go to a restaurant at the last day of the first semester of our Spanish With Natives course at the evening school. This year we've chosen for a restaurant El Greco that serves traditional food. It was for me the first time that i went to a Greek restaurant. I've never been to Greece. The... More

Had the Pork Souvlaki and Steak au Poivre. Souvlaki had a lovely smoked BBQ flavour. A very pleasant evening at a restaurant with very accommodating opening hours. Good after a long day travelling.

Very quiet this time but we were early evening diners on a Tuesday. The food was as good as previous visits. Good white Greek house wine too. My mixed Souvlakia was cooked to perfection and came with salad, pasta and potatoes. Partner chose Lamb Cutlets. Well cooked and full of flavour. We'll be back!

We were walking in search for a restaurants and this one convinced us to step in after seeing the happy face of one of the waiters - his smile was inviting and welcome. He served us a great mix grill and everyone appreciated the food and the service. Later we found out that he was the owner of that place.... More

Very friendly, excellent service and some very good wine. We had a bottle of the St.George. As good as some other very expensive bottles I've had elsewhere. The complimentary closing Metaxa was also most welcome (possible due to us having the large fixed menu).

Sadly, what we were hoping would be a great meze experience was quite mediocre. They had bubbles on offer, but the food on the menu did not leave one inspired. When we ordered, the food was indeed nicely prepared, but of average flavour.

This restaurant was directly opposite our hotel so not far to walk! The food was delicious and the portions were sufficient. We both had the lamb kleftiko(?) which was well presented and tasty. Service was welcoming and friendly and the food was well priced for Bruges. We would recommend a visit.
