Lovely relaxing atmosphere

We had not booked so found this restaurant as we walked through Bruges on our first evening. Lovely relaxing atmosphere. Swordfish was beautifully cooked and stuffed beefburger was delicious. Staff were very friendly too. Good value.

Went to this restaurant on a Wednesday evening in July having been recommended by our hotel and having made a reservation an hour before arrival. Greeted without enthusiasm. Only a dozen or so diners,but filled up quite quickly. We were persuaded to change our original choice of lamb as the owner said it would take at least a half hour... More

The decor and piped-music was all Greek. Food was just okay. Service was friendly. I found the prices high though at €14 for a small mezze plate and €2 for a small glass of water.

My wife and I had our 5 month old son with us. We loved this restaurant for a no-fuss evening meal. Endearingly kitsch interior. Lots of locals eating there... a good sign. The staff were very friendly. In the context of touristy Belgian restaurants, this was 'reasonably' priced.

Typical Greek restaurant. Service very friendly and accommodating. We were served quickly with drinks and weren't kept waiting for our main course. I had a prawn starter sized up to a main which was delicious. My husband went for steak, which he said was a little tough. Nevertheless, good value for money. Quite a busy, noisy restaurant. I would go... More

We came to this restaurant by default but we're so pleased at the outcome. At first the Staff seemed a bit reticent, but as we relaxed the ambience settled on us. It was busy but relaxed. The food was excellent, a good menu bought back memories of holidays gone bye. We were a party of four might need to book... More

So we actually wanted to eat in a nearby Argentinean but didn't book ahead and we couldn't get a table as there was a huge queue which was obviously testament to good food. So we ended up in here as they did have tables free..... Really expensive for what it is. We had the sharing meze to start and were... More

We came across this place by chance and went for the set menu, which was delicious and the portions were huge. Service is friendly but quite slow (they did warn us about this when we ordered the menu) so make sure you have time to sit!
