My husband and I loved our supper at this lively little restaurant. We booked a table and so were allocated a place in the main (upstairs) area of the restaurant, which was busy, bright and welcoming. The food was excellent (especially the buttery garlic prawns to start) and the service, whilst a bit slow at times, was cheerful and friendly; particularly the lovely waiter from Nepal, who was hugely entertaining. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in Bruges; it is well located if you are staying in the historic centre.

Really enjoyed this place. Not the cheapest but good sized portions, excellent food and quality.

Visited after viewing Trip Advisor comments. The waiters although busy had time for us. Varied menu but about 40% fish and complimetary O'Dourves which were also fish seem to strike a marked move to Flemish / North Sea cuisine from its purely Flemish meat impression I got.

Including drinks, the bill worked out at around £40 per person. Food was excellent and it seems they go for booking tables for the evening rather than turnover so unhurried service which suited us well.

We sat in the basement which was pleasant enough. We opted for the 36 Euro set meal. While the food was average but the service was terrible. We had to wait 90 minutes for our main course and when it did arrive it was served in error to someone else who arrived long after we had. When replacement meals eventually arrive they were cold. With all the other good restaurants in Bruges this level of service is not acceptable.

We were a group of six looking for some good quality food on our first night in Bruges. Most of us opted for the 36 euro set menu which offered three good quality courses with excellent fresh fish. All of the food was delicious, particularly the fresh prawns and lobster. The service was extremely friendly and good fun.

The warmest welcome & friendliest service ever. We were treated like VIPs & nothing was too much trouble. The food was fresh & well-cooked, although not spectacular.
