A great little wine bar with very friendly owners and staff. Popped here for a glass of wine on our first night and booked for the Sunday night straight away. They do nice salads at reasonable prices and very good garlic bread etc. service was a little slow but the ambience and atmosphere was fantastic. The owner played a great... More

Just a few hundred yards from the Pand Hotel, this cosy wine bar was a great way to start each of our 3 evenings in Bruges. Good atmosphere, nice service and a decent range of wines and beers. We had a nightcap one evening too and even when busy we were recognised and served promptly, albeit bar elbow room was... More

Stumbled upon this place on a late Sunday afternoon during a 2 night visit to Bruge, we decided it was so nice we would return for dinner that evening,also the appeal was live music. The lady owner said that they were fully booked,however she would reserve two places at the bar to await a vacant table. When we arrived we... More

This place is fantastic! We spent our first night here drinking G&T's to the late hours. The atmosphere is great and it is a popular place, so can get crowded. They have live music on every Sunday night and it costs about 5 euros to get in, but well worth it. We decided to eat there on our last night.... More

Terrific place. We visited twice for a post dinner nightcap but had we stayed in Bruges longer, we would have tasted their fare which looked really interesting (and different). A really warm welcome and highly recommended.

Stopped in on a rainy evening and was greeted by one of the smallest restaurants I have been in. There are about 4 tables and a bar on the first floor and maybe the same up stairs. This is definitely a local hang out. They do small concerts upstairs and a lot of people come for that. The food however... More

Great little bar with a warm cosy atmosphere. Staff knowledgable on wine and if you hit this place on Sunday's you get great live music thrown in. I think what sets this place apart from other similar bars is it's welcoming atmosphere where you are not hurried in or out and as it is small it seems to encourage everyone... More

Have visited this wine bar many times whilst visiting Bruges , had a great evening on sunday listening to the live jazz and a very enjoyable plate of pasta, the atmosphere is great and very friendly. well worth a visit when in Bruges. Wish we could visit every sunday for the jazz.

My partner and I visited Bruges in 2012 and had an amazing time. One of the most memorable experiences was this tiny little wine bar. We went in for a pre dinner drink and I wish we would have just stayed there. It has such a cosy, romantic homely feel to it and the service and choice of wine is... More
