This is a small restaurant, so do your research, get there early, and plan to spend some time. The restaurant was full the entire time we were there, getting one of the last two empty tables. The restaurant, as we understood, is mother/daughter owned with the mother as the hostess/waitress, and the daughter cooking. It is very small with limited seating, very cozy, somewhat romantic, and seemed to be well known and liked by the local people. I had fettuccine with shrimp (which was a special), and my husband had steak. Both were the best meals we had in Brugge. The restaurant is off the beaten path of central Brugge, but well worth taking the time to locate. For Americans who are use to getting in, eating, and getting out, plan to make an evening of it for this dinner. Service is what we Americans would consider slow, but if you take the time to just sit back, relax, and enjoy the conversation of those dining with you, the food is very well worth the wait. This will be my definite dining destination if I return to Brugge. A few people around us ordered rack of lamb, and it not only looked delicious, but smelled delicious. My husband had rack of lamb at another restaurant the previous evening which was very fatty and low quality meat which we paid much more for in the "touristy" area of Brugge. By simply seeing the lamb a few feet away at another table, we both could immediately see a difference in the quality not only of the meat, but also quality of the side dishes. This is a MUST dine.
