We stopped by De Wijngaard at late lunchtime on a day that was not at all busy. In fact, we were the only customers in the restaurant, but that did not detract from the service we received. We knew we were in for a treat when our server said, "you are going to love this steak." My husband ordered the... More

Booked this restaurant on line before coming to Ypres, after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We were welcomed enthusiastically on arrival. Pleasant surroundings. Excellent food - delicious steaks (and sauces) all round. Would revisit definitely.

This restaurant was recommended by a Belgium friend. This small restaurant near to the railway station has a nice atmosphere with a small well stocked bar. We all ordered steak with mushrooms and cream. This was by far the best steak I,ve had for a while. Cooked just as I had requested and not a speck of fat or grissle.... More

We returned again to this restaurant this year when we made our yearly visit to Ypres. Once again the steaks were superb as were the desserts. We always get wonderful service. We were able to book our table from England to ensure we were able to eat after visiting the Menin Gate. Will will return!

Was looking forward to trying out this steakhouse after reading so many good reviews. Unfortunately it was a wasted trip as the place was closed. TripAdvisor and other local sites said it should have been open. Better advisement of opening times please! One very disappointed potential customer...

Pretty much 100% taste, service ambience, friendliest restaurants I've ever been to. A gem and the steak was delicious & cooked to perfection. Go and enjoy.

After reading the reviews here, decided to give this restaurant a try and am so glad we did. Ate here on a Friday evening at the end of the last month, myself, my wife and two children, and have to say the steak ranks as one of the best, if not the best I have ever eaten. The service was... More

Just outside the station, it's well worth a 10 min walk if you're stopping in the Novotel as we were. Simply, extremely good (and sizeable) steaks, nicely cooked to order, with non-generic chips, salad and a fine selection of beers (I'd recommend Hommel) Obviously just used by locals for the most part, we were the only English in that evening....

I heard from a lot of people that they serve the best steaks in the Wijngaard. Well, all these people are right. It was cooked perfectly. But not only their steaks are delicious, my girlfriend ordered the large shrimp salad and it was delightful. Also a very friendly waiter. I would recommend it to anyone! Thank you for the great...
