Really good casual dining

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.

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

We lucked upon this little Resturant on our way to the Last Post Ceremony. Fortunately, though it was deserted at 6:45 - on our return at 8:15 we were lucky to have booked. Small menu but beautiful food. A lovely cool, crisp Sancerre to accompany a scallop salad - perfect. The hostess was very pleasant ( presumably her husband, a... More

The lady-chef-owner is very charming and helpful, always ready to make something special (e.g. vegetarian dish for one of us, not on the card). The card is quite small but then all fresh, and with some really nice dishes which you will not find elsewhere in Ieper. The bar is well stocked. You can eat either in the bar, with... More

Not on the square, and so a little off the tourist track, but very close to our hotel, Het Zilveren Hoofd is small, with a limited, but interesting menu and was not at all busy. The lady who served us (the owner, I think) was very pleasant and efficient, and our food (delicious scallops with a salad for me and... More

We walked into this place after a HUGH tour group had left,but we were seated quickly in the quiet back part of the restaurant.Our waitress was a hoot! She was quick to service and quick of whit! Her suggestions were spot on. The food here was good,the wine and beer were great and the service top notch.

Our tour group went here for dinner on one of the nights we were in Ypres. We were the only ones inside the restaurant and all the tables had been pushed together for us. Jugs of ice cold water appeared on the table soon after we sat down. The set meal came with salad, pork and vegetables, and a chocolate... More
