After visiting this place many times and getting to know the owner, Lore, I was very disappointed to find out she no longer owns it and it has been turned into Tapas only. When we walked in a guy came over to our table and threw menu's on our table and asked if we wanted anything to drink and tutted... More

Had a nice dinner here prior to going to the Last Post ceremony. They have a reasonably (though not extensive) range of tapas, friendly and helpful staff (who speak at least Flemish/Dutch, English, and Spanish), and a nice location just a short walk off the very busy main square. Highly recommended!

Away from the main square which is not a bad thing, this is an excellent Taperia. with very friendly and attentive staff. Good selection of beer, would recommend a visit here.

Travelling in a party of 8 they moved tables together and agreed to our suggestion of a fixed price tapas selection. Good choice of food, pleasant house red wine.

Staff at Hotel Albion recommended this resto as "Ecurie" which was only part of the name. This made it a challenge to identify, plus the resto's own signage is understated at best. But it was a gem. Obviously popular with locals as we were the only English-first speakers there the night we visited, and many guests seemed to be repeat... More

We loved our evening here; Lore, who owns the restaurant, is a fun, engaging, and lovely gal and she was helpful, attentive, and interesting. Two of us had smoked salmon pasta, another had the fish, and another had the steak all with salad and frites. Applecake with ice cream and whipped cream sort of put an end to the evening... More

Only a five minute walk from the crowded (restaurant-wise) Grote Markt, this is a friendly, inexpensive restaurant that serves a weekday "lunch" special that can't be beat for value for money: 13.50 euros, for soup, main course, and coffee. We spent about 16 per person for a meal that was washed down by Ieper beer "Ypra," which was excellent. I'd... More

Steaks to die for, followed by tasty crème brûlée, and friendly service. Only downside - it was rather quiet with not much atmosphere both evenings we ate there. Maybe because it's a few hundred yards from the market square and/or because we went early/midweek. Our party of 10 soon changed that though!!

The encouraging email response to my booking was welcoming & despite not sitting in the main restaurant, had another first class, well cooked, reasonably priced meal. The wine was similarly priced. I cannot remember how many time I have been here over the years & it never disappoints.
