Truly delicious meal. We had the pork knuckles, pork cheeks and ribs for 5 persons, which was just right. Superb quality food, pork cheeks so soft they melted in my mouth, knuckles were very nicely done and ribs were amazing. All mains come with a generous portion of salad and potato. Ambience was quiet cosy and homely, we had an enjoyable meal.

What a find. The reviews don't lie. Tom is amazing as a host. A very friendly, relaxed place with great home cooking.

We gave him a budget per head and then he brought food to the table. Croquettes...pig's cheeks...ham hock...apple tart tatin...AND alcoholic coffees (probably Scottish, not Irish coffee).

A great find. A great meal....hic...

Went there for dinner with my Wife and Mother in Law. It was close to our hotel but far enough for the MiL. Food was very good but the whole evening was made by Tom our host. He was lovely, intelligent and really funny. MiL did not want a starter so Tom brought her a colouring book to keep her busy while we ate our soup. We laughed and laughed. Ultimately he created a really memorable experience for the MiL who does not travel much and may never travel abroad again. Tom THANK YOU and bless you!

Great little restaurant that is family run and away from the main squares. Friendly staff, I think his name was Tom, who runs the front of house. Tom has a great sense of humour, and chats to diners engaging them in witty banter. We sat on a table for two, and found ourselves chatting to other diners in our proximity too.

Food was great wholesome in a home cooked style with Flemish influences. Very tasty and well presented. I would advise booking, the place filled up very quickly and people were being turned away.

Well worth a visit, and worthy of a top score.
