We were extremely fortunate to get a table to eat here on a Saturday night. Having not booked anything in advance, we went from restaurant to restaurant being turned away. We arrived at just the right time and are glad to have not got a table at the other restaurants.
As mentioned in other reviews, it is a little tucked away and benefits from being away from the busiest areas of town. It was full, but still a quiet and relaxed setting for dinner. The staff were friendly and able to answer questions about the menu, even going into the kitchen to fetch an item which he didn't know the English translation for.
We skipped starters as we had a train back to Brussels, but were brought a carrot soup with a smoked salmon and cream cheese bite. I'm not usually much of a salmon fan but this was very tasty and the soup had a nice spice to it.
For the main course I had the flounder with butter sauce and chips and my girlfriend had the gurnard. Both were immaculately cooked and full of flavour but I'd say the gurnard was the better of the two, combining well with the shrimps and sauce. Also the portions were very generous - I was given three fillets on my plate. Neither of us are really wine drinkers, so we cannot comment on the combination of wine with the food.
Unfortunately at the end of the meal we had to rush to get our train but the waiter was very accommodating, quickly getting the dessert out and preparing our bill. We had the crème brûlée to share which was lovely.
We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone going to Bruges. There was nothing we could fault and for the quality of food, it was very good value for money.
