First night in Bruges and saw this little place just down from our hotel. Luckily they had a table we could book and we had a fabulous meal. The menu is not huge but the dishes they have on are glorious. Such bold and exciting flavours with good portions. Sadly we had no room for desserts! Service was good and... More

Food is perfection. Menu reflects the fine points of French and Belgian cuisine. He cooks , she serves and sees to the needs of the customers . Great husband / wife team. Too bad we were too full to try the desserts . Will have to come back.

Recommended by a local, we could not be more happy with the great service and quality of food. We really enjoyed our meals (sea bass and mixed grille) and are so glad we came back on Monday as they are closed on Sunday's

The best meal in Bruges! Friendly owner/waitress married to her co-owner and husband , the chef. The food was amazing. We were given a small cup of carrot soup which was simply amazing to start off. Our waitress said it was their gift to their customers to start off the meal. My husband had the mussels - 1 kilo of... More

We discovered the restaurant by accident, tastes almost better than homemade. Super service, super friendly, best mussels ever, fair prices. Definitely a must if you are in Bruges and want to have mussels

Went here with 4 other friends and had a lovely evening. Food and drink were reasonably priced and the lady owner was so friendly and welcoming. This is a small restaurant but was perfect for our group of friends as not too crowded or noisy. My steak was lovely and the frites were the best we had during our stay... More

A lovely family-run restaurant. We ate here twice in a week and both meals were excellent. Very friendly service and great food. The best chips we ate all week and delicious rabbit casserole and pork cheek. Very reasonably priced and 100% better value than the tourist traps on the main square.
