Sat outside facing the Church of Our Lady which contains the Madona & Child marble statue by Michelangelo that featured in "The Monuments Men". The service was acceptable and the food was good, although I doubt I will have the Eel again (not their cooking, just my preference, but the sauce was very good). We went inside for the desert...

Very friendly staff and a maitre d' who likes to greet all customers. Food is French in style with moules of course and is some of the best quality to be had near the market square.

I told the waiter that I come back to Bruges just for the Zeebrugge fish soup with cheese and rouille at this restaurant. Waffles of course too - one with cream and another with strawberries.

Warmly welcomed by Alexander who recognised us despite the fact we haven't visited Bruges for 18 months. We have used this restaurant for many family meals over the years and never been disappointed. Excellent service from Arrafat and nice to see Alexander again

This is a lovely location just a little way away from the bustle of the tourist squares. Nice tables outside with a view of the church across the street and a main route where the horsedrawn carriages go by. The food was very very good. We had the prawn appetizer which was very fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. My son... More

A lovely restaurant off the "beaten path" but close to the Markt where you can have a quiet breakfast or lunch in nice surroundings. The wood-burning fireplace was a treat in the morning rain and humidity. My omelette was lightly set and delicious. Janet's chicken soup was light and flavorful. The hot chocolate was excellent but the folks ordering waffles... More

I have to agree with the previous review. This place was extremely expensive for what was just a waffle with some strawberries (12.5 euros for one!). The middle aged lady who served us seemed rude and unpleasant. I think maybe she needed a holiday herself! There are much better and less expensive places in Bruges than this especially for belgian... More

Went here with my girlfriend and parents last week. The location is nice, opposite a church, and the menu features traditional Belgian waffles and some fine beers. We each had a waffle with strawberries, two of us had a beer, two had a coffee. It came to 72 euros. I'll repeat that: 72 EUROS. For four waffles and four drinks.... More

We had to have the Belgian waffles and were right outside the church of the Madonna so what a perfect place for lunch. Service was outstanding and a great place to sit outside and watch people.
