“Enjoyable Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Small and cosy resturant serving primarily seafood with a small meat selection. Food was very good, superb steak and some of the happiest waiters I've ever seen, making sure that you were happy and having a good time. A relaxed place and as the evening drew on other customers in the resturant began chatting to adjoing tables and with the staff resulting in a really jolly atmosphere where everyone left smiling. Great night and of you like fresh seafood, choose a lobster from the tank and give it the name of someone you don't like.

“An oasis!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Having left finding a place to eat too late for many restaurant kitchens, we were recommended to visit a certain area of Bruges, Hoogstraat, where we were welcomed with open arms and cheery smiles. This area's restaurants stayed open till much later than most, and nothing was too much trouble for them. This particular restaurant served primarily seafood which was excellent and it was possible to choose your live lobster from the tank! Did they really have names?

“Good value, really nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Stumbled across this restaurant by accident. Not many people in at all, only one more table. Opted for the €36 set menu. Starters, I had smoked salmon, with toasted bread. Girlfriend had scampi - prawns in garlic butter. Both simple, but tasty. We both chose the veal steak for main. Served pink, with potato croquettes, vegetables and a cream mustard sauce. Again, simple, but very nice, and everything was well cooked. Dessert was a grand marnier iced parfait. Slightly alcoholic, orangey ice cream basically. Nice enough. Shared a bottle of house red, €22, surprisingly good! Total bill €96, both happy, would go again. Also, before starters, some marinated olives, bread, winkles and shrimps were served, free of charge. Recommended!

“Excellent and good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Went there for dinner as it was near the Grand Hotel Casselbergh where we were staying. Was full already at 6pm, but we managed to get the last table at 8pm. I had the set menu with prawns to start, Veal Sirloin with Mustard sauce as main and then vanilla ice soufflé as dessert. My girlfriend had the garlic prawns to start and then mussels in white wine. Prawns were excellent, some of the best we have had for ages, my veal steak was also very good, with fantastic flavour. My girlfriend’s mussels were an enormous portion, which she said were very good, plus an enormous bowl of fries. Overall the food was excellent and good value. The only negative was the service was quite slow with only two people serving. Our waiter apologised, saying they had been surprised by how busy it was given it was quiet mid-January.
