Delicious food, great atmosphere, good service

Great food. The menu with 'mezze' is really worth its prize. Delicious. And you really get a lot for the money, taken into account that it's located in the centre of Bruges.

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever visited! A true hidden gem! The food, the drinks and the service were excellent. It is a family restaurant and the owners are very nice and friendly.

A wonderful ambience and excellent food. The staff were friendly yet unobtrusive. We were delighted to receive a Porto and a delicious cake as a gift from the restaurant. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough

We visited this place from the high reviews we saw on tripadvisor. I ordered a grilled calamari cooked in lemon. The dish also came with rice and some potatos and a type of pickle sauce.

The food is honestly some of the best food I've ever eaten, so much so that my girlfriend and I ate there 2 nights in a row! The servings are very generous I thought, taste and flavours... More
