Went in to the restaurant on an of chance, the food was horrendous, the staff were not helpful! i asked for cheese croquet and got shrimp!!
The sausages were raw with blood in them so were inedible!
I would not recommend this place at all! When we left the restaurant we were than moaned about because we did not leave a tip! But i have a very big tip for them! Close up your rubbish!

I would not recommend this restaurant, the staff were disengaged, surly, inattentive and rude. We had to ask for water twice and by the time we left we still hadn't got any. The food was very disappointing, my tuna nicoise was a tin of tuna emptied onto a clump of lettuce, my husbands meat skewer (which he asked for rare) came practically cremated. Two musicians then came in to play the violin and guitar and then approached each table asking for a tip when we were still in the middle of our meal. My husband is in the hospitality industry and he was really unimpressed by this intrusion.We felt that if the restaurant allows the musicians to come in there should be a rule that they don't disturb people who are still eating. Although maybe we should have been grateful of the distraction to take our mind off the terrible food! We asked for the bill and hot footed it out of there for pudding & coffee elsewhere.

Simple, fast service - coffee, hot chocolate, fresh-baked waffles! Bustling place close to the tourist path but popular with locals too. Excellent value, perfect when you need to take a quick break for lunch or afternoon snack.

We made the mistake if not checking Trip advisor first, Lured in by pretty lights and a cosy atmosphere, this was one of the worst meals I've had. I'd been looking forward to mussels in Bruges but they were rubbery, many looked inedible so I didn't risk eating them, the sauce was awful. When we asked for an extra portion of fries we were rudely told that we could have more fries when we'd finished what we'd got already. And all over priced. Would not go back or recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The food was very expensive for what it was, but the service wasn't bad considering the reviews on here. There were 3 waiters and they were fine.
The mussels were fine and scampi isn't scampi! It's tiger prawns. For 20 euros for essentially what was a starter but it was supposed to be a main dish.
Overall it was still poor.
