We were only in Bruges last week for an overnight trip and judging by fellow trip advisor reviewers this restaurant was a must.It was also a stones throw from our great hotel Martins Brugge. We turned up at 6pm and booked a table for later that evening at 7,30. Had a quick look through the menu so that we could start thinking already which of the delicious sounding dishes we would eat, as I am notorious for taking an age to decide what to have. After a nice stroll around the market square and surrounding streets we simply could not wait any longer to go back. So at 7pm we returned and were seated straight away. The owner Paris is a lovely guy and perfect front of house to welcome and look after customers. I had the mixed dips and warm pitta bread to start followed by the calamari and it was delicious beyond words. It had been difficult to pick which dishes to have, as the choice is very inviting. We were given a wonderful Greek walnut cake for dessert and a liquour both on the house, which was very welcome. Paris returned several times to check on us and have the odd light hearted chat, as my friend was once married to a Greek guy there was much to talk about and discuss of food,family and traditions. We enjoyed his company as he obviously did ours! Not wanting us to leave and inviting us to a party at the restaurant the following evening!! Great atmostphere and unhurried service combined with great food. We will return to eat again on our next visit :)
