My husband and I ate here on the recommendation of our B&B. This is a restaurant that the locals like and is not a tourist joint. We both had fish and it was truly amazing. This chef knows how to make fabulous sauces that are nuanced and flavorful. The atmosphere is starkly modern. The service is outstanding, This is one of the best meals I have ever experienced.

Relatively new restaurant in the city center run by an extremely charming hostess who is the wife of Chef Bernard Bonte, one of the rising gastronomy stars in Bruges.

I had a fantastic starter, a fresh salmon sashimi, which came with an excellent Zeelandic Flanders oyster. The second starter was a very strong tasting pigeon bouillon with truffle and our main course was a piece of veal baked to the perfection with silver onions and figs. All this for a mere 49 euro a head, dessert included. Presentation, composition, freshness, it was all close to perfection.

This is extreme value for Bruges where you either pay a small fortune for the top restaurants or get cheated in another ‘bistro’- tourist trap. They serve an excellent lunch here for 18 euro which is pretty amazing.
This restaurant is announcing a new kind of chefs (see also, ‘Tête Presée’ and ‘Lieven’) in this city, cooking on a high level with fresh and quality ingredients.

Two small and less important remarks: the place can be noisy and sometimes the young but brilliant chef is trying too hard to show off. Using less ingredients can sometimes make a plate stronger.

Applause!

We were invited here by a couple friends, we have never been here before. This was really superb, original, a perfect gastronomy (certainly 1 Michelin star level). The service by the lady was very friendly , quiet and without any pretention. There are not many places like this in Bruges, a city where there are hundreds of restaurants. Only....GET YOUR RESERVATION a LONG TIME in advance, even we have sometimes a difficulty to get in. It's always fully booked....off course !!
