12 of us had a fantastic meal here tonight, well worth a short trip off the beaten track, for excellent Flemish cuisine..

The owners opened for our group of 10 on a Thursday night. Service and food both outstanding. Authentic Atmosphere. This restaurant is less than 5 minutes walk from City Centre.

Had an evening meal here for 2. Good choice of food, with some set menus offering particularly good value. We only had one main course each - both were good. House wine was nice.

Enjoyed an excellent traditional meal here. Most of the other tables were occupied by Belgians- always a good sign. The waiter was attentive but unobtrusive and the relaxed atmosphere enhanced the delicious food. Well worth the short walk from the town square.

As a starter, we took an old school boeren (farm) paté. My main dish was the specialty beer of the house: Ruyffelpotje. Delicious rabbit prepared grandma style with bacon and beersauce. Go!
