“Do not enter here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

What a daylight robbery! Menu advertised not keen to be provided. Add ons without explanation. Water , bread €7 a throw for a stale slice to go with pate?.....
Waiter incompetent. Pints instead of glasses. Anything to rip you off!!!!!

Avoid at all costs

“AVOID - Horrible place and tourist trap!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Avoid this place at all costs. The food is terrible and made with canned and processed food, which I saw as I passed through resturant. They will also attempt to rip you off every chance they get and will charge you at will if you order something without pointing it out on the menu. Terrible arogant and rude service, I'm guessing because they know you'll never be coming back. Brugge is so nice it's a shame these places exist and potentially spoil what was otherwise a very pleasant trip. I should've checked trip advisor first before sitting down, lesson learnt!

“Very good, if pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Great restaurant, friendly service, and really good food. I asked for some things which were off season, and got a well described rationale of what was available, what wasn't and why. Only criticism is that you do pay a premium, but then the restaurant is directly behind Markt, so that's to be expected

“Frozen veg and a high price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Weekend in Bruges,forgot to book anywhere for Saturday night. ended up here. Waitress friendly enough... Menu said phesaent fillets in a cream and pear sauce with baked potatoes, sounded good £25.... veg extra £7.50.... Meat was hard and tasteless, expected to see perhaps slithers of pears but no,.. a thick tasteless sauce. Served with tinned potatoes fried in a pan and a tablespoon of frozen mixed veg...yuk and for the price disgusting. Do not be fooled but the wording of the menu..... go somewhere else...... remember to book!!!!!!!!

“Awful place with terrible customer service!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Avoid this place if you can! We visited for dinner first weekend of December as a party of 4 and were very grateful to be squeezed in on a busy Saturday night as we hadnt made any reservations. We were put on a table in the corner by a very drafty door that randoms kept coming in and out of! The waitress was very polite and friendly considering she was working the whole restaurant on her own whilst the lady owner as far as we were aware sat back and watched. We ordered our food and drink and the starters came quickly and were very nice if a bit overpriced! 3 of the party had ordered steaks, shortly after ordering the lady owner came over to offer a salad or veg option with our steaks and we all asked for a salad, presuming as we had been offered this it was included as an option with our meal. The main course came and had very evidently been sitting around waiting as the sauce on the steaks were all congealed and became cold very quickly. We asked for the bill and were presented with a charge for 6 Euros per salad, which was not worth even 2 Euros!! We called the owner over to query this charge as we were under the assumption that they were included! At this point she became very rude, shouting and waving the menu at us and that we should read the menu and this is how she always offers her supplements, we pointed out that we didnt have the menu at the point that she asked if we would like the salad and were never advised that it was a supplement very misleading and a sneaky way to make more money, even when you probably have a 50% mark up on the alcohol!! We went round and round in circles for about 10 mins with her blaming us that we couldnt read and the waitress! She was very rude, obnoxious and vile to us. In the end we paid for the salads as it was going no where! I have never come across someone so rude in customer services and she really doesnt deserve to have a very pretty restaurant in a very pretty city!
Avoid this restaurant and this lady as it will only leave you with a very sour taste for Brugge like we now have!
