This is a unique experience at certainly one of the great restaurants of Europe. The restaurant is on the property of a monastery built circa 1200. The restaurant is quaint building in the country outside Brugge and features some of the best beef in all of Europe. Their signature dish is Chateau Briand with frites that two people cannot finish.... More

This was recommended by a friend for the restaurant. If u like steak this is a steak fest...the fillet is 3 times bigger than you would get in the uk for the money. All the food was good and the wines were excellent The rooms however whilst being interesting and modern were certainly not the quietest. It was like a... More

Been there many times over the last decades. The meat is still very good and plentiful, but that's where it ends. I have seen it going down in many areas over the past decades. Service was very poor and slow on a friday evening and it was like throwing plates on the table and serve yourself... They could a least... More

Good restaurant, We got a warm welcome, had great service.food was really good honest food. Nice shrimp croquettes as starter an a huge portion of cured meat cooked on the grill as main. Absolutely no more room for dessert! Nice place to go.

I've been at least 20 times to this restaurant. It's open 7/7, you can come in at 3pm and eat without any problems. The price / quality is fantastic! Yes you pay 30 euro for a lot of the dishes but you get a small entree, and the steaks are twice the size and twice the quality of other restaurants!... More

What an interesting place, not only does it have food but a large grassed area housing an old Monastery from the 1100s. What a beautiful old building, (the timbers are just lovely), in very good condition. The lawn has a number of very well made and realistic large bronze nudes as well as other smaller bronze statues of various subjects.... More

A wide ranging menu of huge portions. Most people go for the steaks; I am awaiting the company of my rugby player son to help me with one of these. There is plenty of fish and game too. We had had a large lunch before we arrived, but they were quite happy for us to have just one thing. Even... More

This is eating as it was in the middle ages, a bit pricey but a must for the real meat eater who can manage it's one pound cote a l'os. Don't bother to ask for a doggy bag. Don't expect a children menu neither and don't eat during the day before going here. Authentic surroundings, very beautiful. Very crowded but... More

It is impressive... not just the place but the amount of food they serve as well!. You can still feel the monks working, praying, putting away their harvest... and plenty of it! And that is the way we would categorise the food as well. Rustic, good food and plenty of it. If you want a large steack, a plate of... More
