“Like a walk in the Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We had the set menu with the wine. At 65 euro this is an extraordinary bargain. Our dinner lasted for 3 hours. Axel and his beautiful daughter provided peerless service. When you are in Bruges do not miss out on this fantastic restaurant. It will fill up, so make your reservation as soon as you can

Dear Mr. and Mrs K,

Let me thank you for your visit first of all as well as for your glowing review.

It was a pleasure having you in our restaurant as well as bringing up some old memories ( for me ) from Texas, which I visited quite some time ago.
I will forward your comments to my daughter who will be delighted to hear them.
Let us both wish you, and your charming wife, a safe trip back home !

Best regards

Axel

“Gorgeous setting ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I really loved the ambiance and decor of this beautiful restaurant in Bruges. The service was also very welcoming and attentive. The entree was lovely. I had the scallops but the main course of steak with pepper sauce rather disappointing. Meat overcooked and not particularly tender. My friends salmon was also floating in sauce. Maybe it's is just old style cooking and other countries have moved on. Wine prices were ok

“A perfect place for a nice dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I'll add to the other positive reviews to say that this is an excellent choice for a great meal, perfect service, and beautiful setting. We did the set menu and wine pairing and couldn't have been more pleased with both. The room we were in was very formal, but the vibe was not stuffy at all. Very calm, relaxing experience. I was afraid things would move too slowly after reading some of the reviews, but that was not the case. Axel is a very interesting person and quite an accomplished photographer. This was definitely a highlight of this trip to Europe.

Dear Travels_Mucho,

Thank you very much for your recent visit and positive review.
As you correctly point out, the set menu including the wine package is the best value for money.
Furthermore will the free flow of fine wines, ad to your overall experience of the evening.
I know for myself that I enjoy more of my night out when the food is richly accompagnied by champagne and wine...

This being straightened out, I thank you once again for your business and support ;-)

Best regards from Bruges,

Axel
