Exceptional food, ambience and very professional and attentive staff. A really splendid dining room with dishes served to match. Visit for a special/romantic occasion.

“Eager to please”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2009

The restaurant is a little hard to find, located in a nondescript building with just a small sign. Luckily we arrived as one of the chefs was bicycling to work and she was able to let us in. The adorably upbeat waiter spoke marginally good English but was very eager to please and tried his best to make sure he understood our requests. We tried the taster menu and everything was delicious. The lobster was especially enticing. The dining room overlooks a cute patio covered with green foliage and makes you feel as if you're dining in a wealthy friend's backyard. Well worth the hike to get there! Note to American travelers used to eating dinner early... they don't open until 7pm and even at that time we were the only diners for about an hour. Fantastic wine selection as well!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2009

We went for lunch during the week to try and end our trip to Bruges on a high note after a couple of disappointments. We enjoyed the almost private dining experience, as there was only another table of four in.

We chose the taster menu with matching wines and enjoyed both. Both the food and service were excellent as we were allowed to enjoy the meal in the wonderful art deco surroundings at our own pace.

We would certainly go back if we get the chance.

“A True Delight - an experience to be shared.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2008

Visited in June 2008 - absolutely fantastic experience, a real treat, and one to remember for a long time! Townhouse setting in a quiet backstreet off the main shopping area. Luxurious decor, large rooms beautiful decorated - chandeliers, large fireplaces, few tables widely spaced, outside garden area. Choice of three menus - you must choose one menu per table, not exactly a hardship with such a wonderful selection. Discreet service. As a very rare treat, we chose the 5-course menu with different selected wines per course. (Fortunately we did not eat too much during the day!) Taking at a very leisurely pace, each course and wine was described by the staff. Go .... and enjoy, as we did!
