“New Years Eve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Absolutely fantastic meal and staff, probably the best meal, as a whole, I have ever had (and I generally eat out three times a week). The atmosphere was great, the staff friendly and helpful without being overlay attentive and the food sublime, have the lobster.

“Nice food but too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant was close to where we stayed so we just popped in soon after we arrived to book for dinner to make sure we had somewhere to go; it looked warm and cosy too. The service was good and the food was very nice but the prices were too much for what it was. I had oysters to start followed by eel in green herbs - it is a lot nicer than it sounds. My husband had the Flemish beef stew and enjoyed it a lot. We were given some bread for the table but randomly it was given to us in a brown paper bag. The service was good and all the waiters are dressed up in naval uniforms (or so it seems). About 80% of the other diners were English but this could've been because it was the start of the Xmas market season and there were coach after coach of English tourists being dropped off there. There are plenty of restaurants to go to so I would find somewhere else to go to if we go back.

“Great spot in Bruges”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Our dinner at the restaurant was delightful. The food was excellent and the service provided by our waiter, Serge, was attentive and prompt. We chose to dine outdoors, and it was a thoroughly delightful experience. The Belgian stew was exquisite.

“Good central Bruges restaurant”

Great atmosphere and food. Excellent service. The T-bone steak for two on the wood fire grill is highly recommended.

“A Wonderful Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This restaurant is near the Church of Our Lady. We stopped for lunch and we were not disappointed. The service was very good. Our waiter was very tentative. I had a specialty of the day and was not disappointed. The hare was tender and succulent. My husband had a seafood dish and his was equally delicious. This restaurant is reasonably priced.
