Nice ambiance to the place without any glitz. Honest food and friendly staff serving it. You can spend your time looking at all the decorations and be misled into thinking its been there decades. The owners said they created it a few years ago from scratch. A little gem slightly away from the centre but only a short walk. Definitely... More

We were spoilt as this little restaurant was literally 2 minute walk from our B & B. Good food, great service, charming old restaurant.

We saw the positive reviews and weren't disappointed in our visit. Despite a busy night in town, we were able to get a table as this place is off the square. There are set menus of varying prices from €22 up, but we just chose main courses and drinks. We were still treated to an appetiser from the chef. The... More

This restaurant defines local dining in Ieper, with a selection of great traditional dishes and a relaxed atmosphere. We booked in advance to avoid disappointment and it was well-worth it. It is very handily located (a short walk from the main square) and run by a very friendly couple. We worked our way through various dishes and were all in... More

We were lucky to be in Ypres on a Saturday and had booked this restaurant on the recommendation of friends and we are so glad we did. The restaurant is known as "Grandma's Kitchen" and it was a fabulous home cooked meal and certainly one of the best we had during our time in Europe. We went after the Menin... More

Booked this restaurant having read the tripadvisor reviews. We were a group of 4 cyclists stopping one night in Ypres. Seriously one of the best restaurant meals ever, with a lovely calm, cosy atmosphere in this small but very welcoming restaurant. A few mins walk away from the over-touristified main square. Service excellent, beer was great, food choice was a... More

We found this restaurant was only open at the weekend, however well worth the wait. Somewhat quirky interior, excellent food.

we had booked an early meal to enable us to allow time for us to get to the Last Post so as the first guests of the evening and speaking no Flemish we could have felt uncomfortable but no, we were welcomed like old friends. We chose the meal of the month which was a three course meal and was... More

Compared to another restaurant on the square this place, a few blocks off the square was less and we got more food. The host was very friendly and the ambience was old world and lovely. The food was good, homey but not exotic, just what we were looking for. It was also more than enough.

We were staying in leper for a few days and had checked this place out on trip advisor and thought we would give it a go, wow it was worth it, the owner was fantastic and all food is cooked by his wife, and what a chef, as other people have said on this site try the rabbit casserole its... More
