“Best in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Never thought that in a town like Bruges one could still find a place where the chef let's his inspiration flow and does not make 'tourist' dishes. Although mainly using classic ingredients there is a different approach to the final dish presentation which leaves a pleasant surprise and total satisfaction. Service is friendly efficient and portions are the Belgian way.
Highly recommended if you had enough of the usual fares.

“Good cuisine between the tourist traps”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We've been told to stay away from the tourist trap resaurants in Market square. Well this one is just a step from Market, but is really different. Few tables outside, few inside and one waiter - that's it. It's captured my attention, and then the menu. They have real specialties and compared to the prices in Bruges they are very reasonable.

We tried fresh salad with shrimps and chicken strips with cooked veggies mixed with rice. The shrimps were fresh and well cooked and the salad was fusion of veggies and fruits. I liked it. The chicken entree was also very good. We picked a local beer, which added to our satisfaction.

The nice weather allowed us to sit outside. The beautiful streets and buildings of Bruges created the perfect scenery to a romantic dinner.

“REAL VALUE FOR MONEY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Very good and fresh food either meat, fish or salades. Fast service with a smile. New interior rather modern. During summertime trying the various salads is a must. Seasonal dishes are also available and very good.

“Wonderful food with lots of vegetables on a meat plate, and real tap water!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

After trying a number of other restaurants in town, we were told of this place by a local restauranteur and we were grateful. Fabulous food and healthy balanced plates in terms of veggies. In France for sure, and other Belgian places we tried, it is difficult to get healthy veggies with your meat or fish. This place was generous to a fault with veggies plus they served us a carafe of regular tap water......something other Bruges restaurants refuse to serve and make you buy bottled water. So much for the environment!
