We attended on Monday 18 Feb. telephoning prior to book a table, with the earliest sitting being 20:45. Seated next to an open living flame fire, albeit gas, the restaurant was full. It wouldn't take a lot to fill the place, as its rather small. It adds to the atmosphere.
€18 for the eat as much as you like ribs or fajita menu. My wife, teenage daughter and I went for this, with my daughter having the Fajitas and my wife and I the ribs. For €25, they offer a croquette starter, the ribs or fajita main, plus a dessert or Irish coffee. For Bruges, that's excellent value.
Two waiters, both attentive and offering speed of service, despite the fullness of the restaurant.
The ribs were delivered and must have been a foot long. Spicy barbecue for me. The ribs were meaty and excellent. My wife had the traditional barbecue coating. Slow cooked ribs, for 7hrs apparently, making the meat tender.
The fajitas comprised three tortilla wraps, plus a bowl of chicken and peppers, with chilli, guacamole and accompanying sauces in little bowls. There was so much chicken and pepper, that more tortilla were requested. More meat was offered, but unnecessary. Someone with a bigger appetite could really go to town.
I was offered more ribs, this time asking for the chocolate and beer sauce. Whilst very good, I preferred the spicy sauce. The chocolate and beer sauce perhaps too sickly for my personal liking. A smaller portion served on 'seconds', which I guess is only right.
We were stuffed, but the waiter offered more. We declined. He insisted. This time I asked for a very small portion of the ribs with the house dry rub mix. The waiter warned me not to expect the meat to be as tender, as this was not slow cooked. Instead, barbecued from raw. It was still ok, but admittedly not as tender as the other two had been. But excellent service from the waiter in at least explaining this beforehand.
No dessert or starters. Ribs served with frites (chips). Drinks of beers, Coke and a litre bottle of water (expensive at €5) and the bill totalled just shy of €70.
Certainly not fine dining, but the ribs were excellent if you're into that type of thing. It does exactly what it says it will. The restaurant doesn't attempt to promote itself as anything different, so overall 5/5.
