Excellent in every way.

Presentation of all courses beautifully done. Our steak was perfect as was risotto. Lovely sauces and an unusual beet salad that was delicious. Despite some service mishaps, the Wait Staff handled corrections with grace. Lovely to eat where the Locals eat,.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel as typical Belgian food and good value for money. What a massive disappointment. The restaurant looked lovely from the outside and was close to the centre. We were greeted nicely and given a nice table. I'm afraid that was the best of it. The menu was severely limited with nothing I really... More

Dear Sallycoles, I'm sad to read your comments about the food, as you didn't even taste it. Your husband did like it I guess, he ate his own plate and most of yours. I tried to offer you a solution but you did not want anything else or more. You mention you don't like asparagus? Well, it is mentioned in... More

Small chic restaurant close to the centre of Brugge. Classy in every way. We had wonderful langoustines and a wagu beef burger. Very tasty. Super desserts. Great service and bubbly atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Didn't think the meal was worth the money, we bought a bottle of wine, instead of leaving it on the table, she left it in the bucket on the bar, defintely would not go back, very dissapointed, don't paying a higher price for a meal if it is worth it.

We came here for lunch and it was marvellous. It's fashionably chic in terms of decor but still warm and the seating is comfy. We had a set menu which was very good. We tried to one back for another meal but it was closed on a Monday. We'd come back when in Bruges, for sure.

Stunning food. As a vegetarian I infrequently find anything that isn't run of the mill and in vastly smaller quantities than my accompanying meat eaters receive. While no vegetarian option was listed on the menu here the chef produced generous helpings of the most beautiful food. My meat eating partner was equally delighted with the food that was presented to... More

My wife and I enjoyed the 3 course option with great tasty food, on par with a UK one AA rosette rated restaurant. The service was attentive and relaxed. Food was presented with care and cooked beautifully. I would recommend for a relaxed evening in a sleek restaurant enjoyed by the locals (Always a good sign)

Ate here on a recommendation from our hotel. The three course menu is excellent value for the quality of food that you are getting. A 5 minute walk away from the main square and the tourist driven restaurants, this is a refreshing change in Bruges, where the focus is on the food and not just getting tourists through the door....
