We ate here for Christmas Eve dinner. Portions were decent sized and delicious. The setting was very mellow and nice. It was a tad tricky to find as it is in the basement and on Christmas Eve there is not a lot of things open to ask for directions. We almost missed our reservation. Thankfully when we called lost they... More

Worth popping in to this lovely cellar restaurant for some good quality food and wine at a decent price. We had fish. Very tasty and well presented. Verry friendly owner! Good for reasonable sized group.

They were ready for us.......and as soon as we got situated, champagne was arriving. They were also able to provide some great beers for those that were not inclined for... More

From the moment I contacted Patrick back in January, to the moment we left the restaurant he could not have been more helpful. Patrick gave me a set menu to choose from for our group and we... More

Patrick the owner was extremely friendly and attentive. The food, that we had all pre-ordered, was absolutely fabulous. Could not fault anything. A gem of a restaurant in Bruges and a must-try if you possibly can.

Had a lovely evening celebrating a special birthday. The food was very good, salmon timbale to start followed by fillet of beef and sea bass. Peter and his staff coped well with the large number in our group, making us feel very welcome and ensuring we enjoyed our evening.

Had a fabulous meal here on Saturday evening. Found the restaurant by chance and Patrick was very accommodating and helpful. There were nine of us for my husband's 60th birthday celebration and we could not fault the food, service, ambience or value for money. Thank you for making it a very special meal.
