My husband and I were quite excited to try this restaurant. The description and pictures on the website made it a top choice for us while visiting Bruges and we made a reservation in advance. The setting is beautiful and we were greeted quite warmly by the owner (?). Once seated, the server came and went over the menu with us and took our drink order. We were provided with homemade pickles (delicious), bread and a nice spread for the bread. We opted to not have an appetizer. My husband ordered the ribeye steak and I had the chicken curry. They arrived within 5 minutes of us ordering which seemed a little rushed for us. The food was very good but after the food came, the server never returned. We would've gladly ordered another drink and possibly dessert but after waiting at least 20 minutes after finishing our food, we were simply ignored and decided it was best to just pay the bill and find somewhere else to relax. Based on the atmosphere and the quality of the food, I would recommend the restaurant. Hopefully the service was just a little off that night.

Unique venue and atmosphere, good music, seated to a high table on high buffets, dark wood decor with eclectic pictures / decor on the walls - amazing lights! Staff service excellent, friendly and well informed (able to cater happily for dairy and egg free diet). Menu selection, not huge but varied, would be something on there for everyone. Would happily re visit.

Amazing place to eat - delicious local cuisine, fantastic music and an owner who goes round greeting everyone. Popular and for good reason! We went around 7:30 which seemed to be a good time before it got too busy later on.

We were drawn by tales of music (only offered on Sun) but loved the cozy fire, helpful staff & excellent steaks. A good choice in Bruges.

We found this place by chance looking for another venue which didn't open until later on in the day, so we thought we'd give it a try.

The setting is lovely, almost church-like, with stained glass windows and lit by candles. The bar served nice cocktails as well as the usual Belgian beer affair, and whilst we didn't eat, the food we saw served also looked good.

Jazz music played throughout, adding to the atmosphere of the place. Definitely somewhere we'd visit again.
