“Excellent Position - Food not so good!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We came across this pretty looking little restaurant on our way back to the city centre and our first impressions were good. The waitress handed us menus, sat us by the large window (it was a hot evening) and said if we wanted any help with the Flemish menu she would assist us.

We decided on a half chicken each with salad and chips, together with a glass of wine and a pepsi cola and sat back to wait. The service was not fast, but we were not in a hurry - our only problem was that customers were sitting directly outside the window smoking and we had to move our chairs about to avoid the fumes from the three cigarettes they managed to smoke in about half an hour!

The food when it arrived was not of the finest - the chicken was dark brown and highly salted and the meat was dry and hard to swallow. The salad consisted of of small amount of soggy lettuce, a quarter of less than fresh tomato and that was it. The chips were the skinny kind and not particularly warm.

We persisted however and decided on a sweet of ice cream and fresh fruit. The ice cream was lovely, the fruit was not. It had the tang and fizz of fruit just on the turn.

For this meal we paid 50.25 Euro.

Perhaps we caught the restaurant on a bad day, but we certainly did not head back there again.

“worst food i've ever eaten in my life !”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

The staff was very rude, couldn't take a comment, was pushing hard. They almost started a fight with us because we told them the food was horrible.
We took a mixed brochertte.The saucages where soure, the meat was still raw and of very bad taste. I think this was old, more then a couple of days.
The couple that opens this restaurant was fighting all the time
The bar was 1 big dishwasher staple, everything was dirty.
This is by far the worste restaurant i've ever visited.
If you don't want to be sick, don't go here !!!!!!!!!!!
latest arrivel to eat was 6.30 PM.

Very friendly staff, proper meal, more affordable than the restaurants in the center. The staff recommends what to have depending on your preferences. Very nice!

“We thought we found a secret restaurant in Bruges”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We were bike riding around the city and stumbled upon this little place near the Gentpoort bridge. The offering was a 12.50E prix fixe lunch. We thought "why not?" since it was not in the city center or tourist area. We were so delighted. I had the cheese croquet, small salad and Flemish stew with a glass of wine, my Husband had the soup with salad and fresh grilled fish with Bruges Zot. Everything was delicious and so wonderfully presented. The owners were very friendly and you could tell they rightfully were proud of their Brasserie. We thought we had found our little secret place but can see from TA that it is not a secret at all! Delightful surprise, would highly recommend!
