Description: A friendly, privately run restaurant, close to the centre of Bruges. Specialising in a volonte (all you can eat) spare ribs which can be ordered succulently slow-cooked or tradional barbequed for that extra bite! Other specialities on our menu include fajitas, as well as excellent T-Bone and Rib-eye steaks. All this can be washed down with some of the regions finest beers.

“It should be called "The Best Ribs 'n Beer"!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

We did not have a reservation on a Tuesday evening and they were able to seat us even though it was fairly busy. These ribs are by far the best ribs we have ever had! It truly is Belgian soul food!

The cost is 18.00 euro for all you can eat and on Monday's they have a deal for 17.00 that comes with a free beer. The smokey BBQ and the beer-chocolate sauces were amazing.

Our waiter PJ was very helpful and kind. He definitely made the experience even better with his beer suggestions!

This restaurant is a MUST go! We hope to make another visit before we leave!

“Great ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Made a reservation easily by email following the reviews on Tripadvisor. The ribs are succulent and are served with fries and salad. The place was very busy on a Sunday evening and we saw several people being turned away. Price is reasonable also and good selection of beer. They also do a fixed price meal but we just had the ribs.

Fantastic food, awesome ribs, good service, reasonably priced. If your in Bruges and don't pay this place a visit then its your loss, don't normally get excited about a restaurant but this place does the best food ever.

“Meaty goodness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

The decor here is fine. The service is fine. The beer selection's fine. The sides are, well, fine. But man oh man, if the ribs aren't some of the best you'll ever find, anywhere you go on this earth of ours.

The 18 euro main, where you get as many ribs as you can eat, is just sensational value. What's even more astonishing is that the waiters frequently (and voluntarily) ask if you'd like more - no need to apologetically ask while expecting them to sneer and grunt the briefest acknowledgement before slamming another plate down in front of you. They pre-empt all this and, dare I say it, seem almost disappointed when you tell them you couldn't possibly handle any more.

Just to repeat, the ribs here are absolutely sensational. If you're lucky enough to go to Bruges you absolutely must pay this place a visit.
