A friendly, privately run restaurant, close to the centre of Bruges. Specialising in a volonte (all you can eat) spare ribs which can be ordered succulently slow-cooked or tradional barbequed for that extra bite! Other specialities on our menu include fajitas, as well as excellent T-Bone and Rib-eye steaks. All this can be washed down with some of the regions finest beers.

Best ribs in the world

What can I say, after 2 attempts finally got a booking when in bruges and boy was it worth the effort of booking early. The house chocolate and beer ribs are the best ribs in the world, the staff could not do enough to help even ran down the street after me with a bag I left under the table.... read more

Second visit and again was not disappointed. Ribs were excellent and I went back for another half rack as there is an all you can eat option which is still very competitive. Staff are all very friendly as always and I would go back.

Went there with friends and it was great, the ribs were really nice, especially the house ribs - beer and chocolate. The staff were also very nice and always available when needed. I would definitely recommend.

Had a fantastic night here with my girlfriend. Staff and management were friendly, quick, the whole service was perfect. Nachos were really good (nice cheese sauce) but the chefs special ribs even surpassed that. Great food, great atmosphere. It made our night. Thanks again.

Again you must book. Please never turn up, you will 9 out of 10 times get turned away. The ribs fall of the bone, 4 different flavours. We always pay a visit when in Bruges. Even booking 3 months in advance. A full rack to start and then just ask for more. Service is good and attentive but not so... More

Went here while with two friends while visiting the Bruges beer festival. Went for the 'All You Can Eat Ribs'. Quantity is 5/5 fantastic as they will just keep bringing out more ribs until you are full. I almost ate 3.5 full racks. I give quality 4/5 only because I often visit USA & they do the best. But would... More

Me and my friend went here after a recommendation from another friend who travelled to Bruges the month previous. The ribs to start with are all you can eat so allows you to try the different flavours. But the ribs were just amazing! The meat fell off the bone! If you love ribs and visiting Bruges definitely add this to... More
