Excellent steaks in a great local atmosphere. Every dish has a beer match and the owner was wonderful.

We had a family lunch, one of us is vegetarian, so had to take the only available option, which was a vegetable soup of the day and baked Camembert. The soup was horrid, bearly eatable, oversalted and felt like from an instant powder soup. The Camembert was lovely, was baked on the fire but very pricey for a starter that... More

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. It's a way off the tourist trail and took a bit of finding but it was so worth it. We got a huge welcome and our waiter was amusing throughout the evening. We didn't have starters as we had seen the size of the main courses... More

Supprising this restaurant gets high scores. I asked a really tender steak and was recommended the Uruguayan Picanha on top of the rib-eye. As we have been traveling in South-America, we know it is very hard to find chewing gum quality steak in that continent. So, we were looking forward to it. Unfortunately, the one I and my son were...

A lovely find on a surprisingly cold and wet evening in Bruges. Simple menu majoring on steaks which are cooked on an open grill in front of you. Beer range is good and a 'periodic table' lists them in strength and taste. Friendly family service and recommended.

At time of writing I am relaxing in our hotel bed after breakfast but my mind seems to linger to the best T-Bone steak I had to date. My partner and I are both incredible meat lovers and decided to go to a grill in Bruges. After reading the reviews I got highly interested in this place and even after... More

Modest-looking Flemish pub on the corner of a residential street in the old city. Family-run and food cooked before you on the traditional open fire in the bar. Definitely for meat eaters this place, with high quality steaks the mainstay. A new addition is a set menu with beers recommended for each course. We had escargots to start and rib... More

We ate in this restaurant on our first evening of a 3 night trip to Bruges and it was my favourite of the trip. Really friendly feel to the place and was busy with locals and tourists too. It's out of the centre (2 mins from our B & B lucky for us!) but worth a few minutes walk as... More

What a fantastic restaurant. Great staff, jovial atmosphere and the unique experience of having Paul cook your steak (beef for me, ostrich for my partner) on what can best be described as the living room hearth. Even the baked camembert was cooked here. Often the best restaurants have the most simple menus and this is definitely one worth visiting.
