This was easily the finest meal I ate in Brugge. Very small..20 seats. I had lamb for my main & it was perfectly prepared. I would rate these chops as excellent. Others enjoyed hen, mussels & sole. Everyone wants to go back for more. Family operated with mother offering service, father as chef and adorable young daughter helping until her... More

Everything about this small restaurant was excellent: the food (we chose the a la carde menu), the setting, the service. We would definitely visit again!

The owner was very welcoming and friendly and the restaurant was small and well appointed. We chose the 4/5 course menu which was accompanied by different wines which were described by the owner....

Visited the restaurant for dinner. Although it is a small family restaurant, the quality of the service and food is top notch! Will definitely pay a visit when I'll return to Bruges!

We ate here on our final night in Bruges. Our gracious host for the evening was happy to review the menu with us and made us feel very welcome! We chose the wine paired with the set menu and were not disappointed. Well paced evening with wonderful dining selections and delicious wine. A cozy and intimate bistro and we enjoyed... More

Some of us had lemon sole fillets to start, others had prawns and avocado, both starters were great. 4 of us had perfectly cooked steak and Janet had halibut all again very good. On the drinks front, carefully prepared... More

We got to our hotel late on Thursday (8:30), and the hotel suggested this restaurant. We were very surprised by the great quality that we really just lucked into with the last free table. We were so impressed that we made a reservation for Satyrday night too. The quality is very high, and maintained by a husband and wife team.... More

We chose this from the outside plus the menu and had a quick check on Trip Advisor! Small, stylishly decorated restaurant, very friendly owner? wife? , busy on the night we went and they were mostly upmarket tourists- irish/USA/English but some locals. Good napery, good-sized tables--can make a difference to the eating experience. There is a special 40 euros menu... More
