A place to enjoy the local gastronomie

Situated just outside the center of Ypres, but still accessable by foot. Beatifulle old building with modern interior. Excellent servive, the food is very good (the quantities are a bit large). Very nice wine menu at affodable prices. You need to make a reservation in weekends.

This restaurant is very high class dining. A bit expensive but the place to go to impress. Five minutes from the Grote Markt. Good wine list and pleasant atmosphere.

Food was lovely, service was good, interior nice...would definitely go back for a meal there. Pre-booking is advised as we managed to book the very last table.

Situated in an old factory, just five minutes walk from the Grote Markt, De Fonderie is definitely one of the better restaurants in the region. It is a Michelin-level one, but the combination of its interesting atmosphere with huge portions and quick service make it quite a pleasant experience. We were a group of 7 for a dinner and the...

Just five minutes walk from the Grote Markt. Top class restaurant where the Belgian wealthier classes eat. Great for a special occasion while away. Dearer that the centre restaurants but drips class. Meal will cost about euros 40 each. Well worth the treat.

Location within walking distance of the old centre of Ypres. Cosmopolitan look & feel within a renovated building of an old factory. Warm welcome. Efficient and friendly service and overall excellent food. (Only minus was the quality of the fries... And this in Belgium ?)

Amazing quality food, good size portions,nice setting and friendly staff. Whilst it is a little bit pricey it is much the same as other restaurants in Ieper. This is a very busy restaurant we managed to book the last table which speaks for itself, lots of locals use this restaurant.

Can be a bit pricey, but well worth it. Mainly Italian (fresh pastas, scampis...), with a Belgian twist, and some local dishes that will vary depending on season. The atmosphere is classy and friendly. If you want to impress, this is the place in Ieper.

Arrived just before 7 and ordered within 10 mins. Amuse Bouche was tasty and a lovely touch. Starters of risotto and cheese croquettes were beautifully presented, tasty and good size portions. Unfortunately our main meals, which we had to chase for, then took an hour to arrive, by which time we were no longer hungry and would happily have paid... More
