“Where the locals eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Cheap and delicious place where you can try the real flemich cuisine. I had a soup, fish+chips and salad just for 10 euro. Not such an easy (and tasty!) price to find in Bruges

“Intimate and charming place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

This restaurant is off the beaten track, just what me and my other half were looking for, and well worth a visit. It's also a guesthouse which, though we didn't stay there, looked like it had lovely rooms. Quirky and homely interiors, some of the seats were old theatre/cinema style seats, good hearty food at bargain prices. We ordered a lasagne, meatloaf with rice, (both were delicious) two beers and a bottle of water all for 29E. Prior to having your main course, the waiter brought us homemade vegetable broth which was a nice touch, you felt very welcome. The 'lady of the house' spoke good English; all in all a lovely, intimate dining experience that gets you away from the crowd and more touristy places. Little tip: they only accepted cash payments so go armed with some notes!

“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

Nothing spectacular but a nice cheap meal of salmon with lobster sauce for €9.50, not to mention you get free soup before this. Beers are reasonably priced and the staff are friendly enough.

“Cosy and od”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Small and cosy tucked away in a street. The lady of the house is a bit grumpy but that was fine, the young waiter was very helpfull.
It wasnt fancy, and they didnt portray it otherwise.

“Worst Lasagne”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

The soup and the meat were alright, but the Lasagne my girlfriend had, was really a slap in the face. Overcooked, sourly taste, the minced meat could hardly be recognized as meat - everything was suspiciously like with those cheap ready-to-serve Lasagnes you get in supermarkets.

Also the cheese croquettes weren't very good and most definitely not home made (I won't even mention the overpricing - 8,50 for two small croquettes - because that's probably normal in Bruges).

So, to sum it up: You can order some decent meat for a reasonable price in a cozy atmosphere - but stay away from the Lasagne!
