Highly recommend this place. Excellent food at a fair price. The place feels like an old country inn. The wait staff is very attentive without lingering over our shoulders. A Frey pleasant place to enjoy a fine meal.

Definitely the best spare ribs I have ever ate! In a cozy, romantic place, we had a nice dinner next to the fireplace. We also tasted the typical, delicious Flemish stew. If you come to Bruges, this is a must!
