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

We wanted somewhere away from the main square. Wandering around we found this pleasant setting. Very well appointed and spacious. We had a very friendly welcome and found the atmosphere to be quite pleasant. Our choices were three for steak and one for duck breast. They were all cooked to perfection. The accompanying dishes were perfect too. Very friendly and... More

We went here after reading the reviews and were really looking forward to it. That's the good bit, and it went downhill after we got there. The restaurant itself is very nice, cosy, welcoming. The male waiter/ boyfriend/ husband/whatever he is, took contempt for his customers to a new low. After taking us to our table, the then ignored us... More

I ordered carbonade with french fries. However, the fries were actually almost raw patatoes, just slightly baked. Worst fries I have ever eaten. The carbonade itself was tasteless. I would suggest to taste before you serve. This is a very classic dish and if it is one of only 6 dishes you serve, it needs to be served well. I... More

With a menu that covers all tastes and a very central location, we were very glad to have found this restaurant during our short stay in Ieper. The service was very friendly and the steak and duck main courses we had were tasty and perfectly prepared.
