Family run restaurant. The chef works with local products and follow the season (makes a wonderful dish of asparagues with seared scallops). His wife is a top sommelier and has created a superb winelist!

This wonderful, out of the way, restaurant is a real treat if you can find it - although obviously all the locals know it! The husband (the chef) and wife (who runs the service side) who own this certainly know their meat and even grow their own vegetables and are rightly proud of their efforts. Most helpful, gracious and welcoming. A delightful dining experience; go.

We had business lunch with 2 persons à la carte. The charming lady of the house invited us in and had time for conversation and informing about the menu. We enjoyed our lunch in this high standard but still very cosy rural restaurant. Lots of locals enjoying their meal. Staff is of high professional standard and helpfull. For sure value for money and with a high luxury level. When getting out of busy Ieper/Ypres, for sure a place to go for dinner (make sure that you make reservation because it is very very busy, what shows the quality of this restaurant)

We stopped at Merlijn with a WW1 battlefield tour group on Apr 6th. We were not expecting to stop at this beautiful restaurant on the Belgian hillside and were pleasantly surprised when we were seated in this wonderful dining room!

The service was fantastic from the start, and considering we had a large group of 17 people they were very happy to have us join them!

We were also pleased to find out that the owner/hostess was a wine sommelier and offered to pair our meals with some of her wine suggestions!

I had a glass of the suggested chardonay and a St. Bernadus Abbey Ale with lunch, both were great with the meal.

For our starter we had an amazing vegetable and meatball soup that was harvested from their personal garden! Best soup I have put lips too!

For our entree we had a filet of cod and salmon in a nice cream sauce with garden veggies. The dish was fantastic! Fish cooked to perfection and the cream sauce was a great addition to the dish!

I would recommend this stop to anyone travelling through Belgium. I will be back on my next trip through Europe.
