Small, intimate restaurant serving good food and drink. Close enough to Markt to be easily found, but far enough away to be reasonably priced.

Thought we had stumbled across a gem. We were only the second group in and there lay the problem. By the end (two courses) of our meal there was only one table unoccupied. Plates were cleared, and there we waited for 20 mins for any acknowledgement that we were still there! Only managed to get her attention when she came to speak to her son sat at the table next to us. Eventually went up to pay bill as we could still be sat there at Christmas waiting to pay. Such a shame as the food was different (not a mussel in sight) and decor was great.

Situated very much in the tourist heart of Bruges this restaurant has a lovely warm ambiance with table layouts giving plenty of space between diners to enable quiet conversation. A not too expansive menu, to me, always ensures good fresh, quality, cooking. This was the case. We both had the sirloin and was not disappointed. What did disappoint was the service or rather lack of service. There was around 25 diners but just the one server. Furthermore she did not appear to be in any hurry. We like relaxed long meals but we waited for 25 minutes after finishing our main course before being asked if we would like a dessert. During this time two tables were cleared (and reset) although not required for other diners!
Adjacent diners on two separate tables had pulled books from there bags and were reading whilst waiting. My advice to diners visiting this establishment would be to ensure they have plenty of time to spare or to take a good book!

Very close to our hotel and the Burg square this great little place really stood out for us. Very quirky decor inside it had a really nice ambience about it. The food was a fantastic, a couple of the set menus were especially good value compared to other places we had eaten in. To top it all the hostess/ owner was very welcoming and helpful. It was so good we went back the next night!

I have been in that restaurant for diner with my wife. We didn’t make prior reservation but they had a table for us. The staff is very friendly and does his best to take care of you and make you comfortable. Whoever it is the lady owning the restaurant or the waitress, both are very smiley and caring. The food is home made and delicious. They have a lot of different beers and you can test amazing local beers. The place is comfortable and you feel immediately at ease. And finally it is not very costly. A great place to go if you are travelling to Bruges.
