Highly recommended - it has 2 names so don't get confused

We loved our evening here; Lore, who owns the restaurant, is a fun, engaging, and lovely gal and she was helpful, attentive, and interesting. Two of us had smoked salmon pasta, another had the fish, and another had the steak all with salad and frites. Applecake with ice cream and whipped cream... read more

Staff at Hotel Albion recommended this resto as "Ecurie" which was only part of the name. This made it a challenge to identify, plus the resto's own signage is understated at best. But it was a gem. Obviously popular with locals as we were the only English-first speakers there the night we visited, and many guests seemed to be repeat... More

Only a five minute walk from the crowded (restaurant-wise) Grote Markt, this is a friendly, inexpensive restaurant that serves a weekday "lunch" special that can't be beat for value for money: 13.50 euros, for soup, main course, and coffee. We spent about 16 per person for a meal that was washed down by Ieper beer "Ypra," which was excellent. I'd... More

Steaks to die for, followed by tasty crème brûlée, and friendly service. Only downside - it was rather quiet with not much atmosphere both evenings we ate there. Maybe because it's a few hundred yards from the market square and/or because we went early/midweek. Our party of 10 soon changed that though!!

The encouraging email response to my booking was welcoming & despite not sitting in the main restaurant, had another first class, well cooked, reasonably priced meal. The wine was similarly priced. I cannot remember how many time I have been here over the years & it never disappoints.

The owner of our hotel recommended this restaurant, after a disappointing meal on the main square. We had a quite excellent meal, with friendly service. The restaurant is located on a side street off the main square, and is well worth the effort of finding it. The wine list is not long, but has good wines reasonably priced. The duck... More

The food was absolutely delicious and Lore is totally charming. Slightly lacking in atmosphere but otherwise all 7 of us had a fabulous dinner.

I enjoy this restaurant. It's not pretending to be grand dining, but it offers excellent food, adequate wine and a very pleasant ambience. Far better value than some of the restaurants on Grote Markt and ideal for groups up to 25 people. Lore runs a good and friendly business. My restaurant of choice in Ieper, and I've eaten in many.

Trying to find a decent restaurant in Ypres is not easy, but after numerous times of going to Ypres, this is one of the best. The owner opened early for us to book for that night. Very attentive staff, Good food, Beer and Wine
