Discovered this restaurant by accident after the first 3 restaurants recommended to me were closed. Ordered the Flemish Taste. Croquettes were perfectly prepared balls of delicious molten cheese, followed up by the Flemish Stew which was ideal for the cold winter day on which I visited and then finished off with a delicious pumpkin and gram cracker desert which was fantastic. One of my better experiences in Brugge. Talked with the owner for a time. An inspiring young lad with a very interesting story and a knack for languages. Would recommend!

We were walking around when we decided to try their set lunch...lasagne came a little burnt !
Chicken came looking like it flew from the roaster! Very unrefined ! Dessert and bread was good but other than that everything else was sub mediocre...

We seem to have eaten here on the same night as your previous reviewer and had a totally different experience! First class service, charming ambience and location, and a very good menu, a refreshing change from the local dishes which, though interesting, tended to be heavy elsewhere. We will return!

I wont say it was freezing inside, the deco not that cosy and too expensive for mussels or anything else.
I just want to say that food is disgusting, no taste, no salt, wine even more. I gave back the wine after the first taste, they lied it was because the wine was opened from two days and servedme another one after i said i didn't want anything else. I gave it back a second time saying the wine was not good. At the end, they put i on the bill and ask me to pay. We had a long argument about that and i had to speak very loud, really not a good service.

We happened to walk by the restaurant off of the canal and decided to give it a try 'cause it has a "tripadvisor excellence" sign. The waiters were very friendly and chatted with us with their cute French English! We had mussels and steak and both were very delicious! Coffee afterwards was good too with pastry on the side. The location is not exactly on the canal so you don't get a view of it while eating, but food was great and atmosphere was one with candle light and dimmed atmosphere. Great experience overall!
