I was recommended this restaurant and I cannot find one good reason why. The food was dire and the service similar, to the point of almost being comedic (think Fawlty Towers). We were offered a poor table and told the others were reserved, but they remained empty the whole time I was there. The meat is slow cooked and should... More

This restaurant serves authentic Flemish food and it is as tasty as anything. Off the beaten track in a quiet road. Lovely decor. Prompt service. Your table bread is served in a paper bag. The portions are big so don't order starters unless you are really hungry. I had the Flemish beef stew. Slow cooked and the meat just falls... More

Lovely place, great atmosphere & great food. Dined here on Sunday 22 May with my husband,93yr old mother-in-law, our daughter & partner. Staff were very friendly & helpful & food was excellent. Walking distance from our hotel (which was good for my mother-in-law) so everything ticked the box! Would recommend it for a meal out whilst in Bruges.

Highly recommended. brother -in-law lives in bruges and had recommended this restaurant to us. Flemish beer stew was simply wonderful. It was very busy, so book in advance. Good location, just off one of main shopping streets.

My wife and I both ordered the Flemish Beer Stew. It was served in a black pot and set between us so we could serve ourselves family style. This dish was fabulous and portion was generous. Endless fries came with this main course. They were served to us several times straight from the kitchen by server going table to table... More

If you want authentic Belgian food this is the place to eat. Be warned the portions are huge but the food is incredible and the atmosphere is lovely.

Had a fantastic meal here - probably the best of our trip through Europe. The food was absolutely excellent, the service good, and the atmosphere wonderful. I had the beef stew (in beer) which was absolutely fabulous, and my wife and daughter had seafood stew which they both enjoyed. Although the meal was not cheap, the portions were very generous...

Went here with friends and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. We all chose the Flemish stew which came in abundance and served with chips.The red wine was served at perfect temperature. Desert was also enormous. The restaurant was buzzing and all the staff friendly and attentive. Would certainly return here on a next Bruges trip.

Charming restaurant with traditional interior/exterior and traditional cuisine. My partner and I each had the Flemish Beef stew and although it was sweeter than what we are used to it was very tasty and the meat was melt-in-your-mouth tender. Serving sizes are huge so skip the entree. Our meal came with bread & butter, crunchy twice cooked fat chips (top... More

They don't like French People, it's a fact, not a legend ! But their recipes are soooo great... Then... This 100% Flemish restaurant is not good for the reception... But they are soooooooooo good in their kitchen... almost like the French restaurant ;-)
