This restaurant was recommended by the receptionist of our hotel. It was very busy which I always think is a good sign! The menus were either set or A la Carte consisting of traditional Flemish food or French/ English meals. We had a set menu for €22 - 3 courses and the food was cook to our liking and plentiful. The waiters were polite and we didn't have to wait long for our meal. Would recommend.

We visit Bruges annually and never miss a visit to this restaurant just off the T'Zand. The fixed menus are such good value and the quality is excellent and consistent. In fact, this year, we ate there each night of our stay. The Flemish stew is one of the best in Bruges.......and we have had a few to compare it with.

We came across this by accident - it was full at 19:35, but luckily someone got up and they squeezed us in. We both thought the three course offer was good value at 22 euros. Plenty of choice, my friend had the steak and said it was one of the best ever tasted - the pudding - chocolate mousse was great - house red was vin ordinaire! Over all would definitely recommend it. The only problem was it was shut on Thursday night or we would have eaten there again.

Ate here twice during our 4 night stay in Bruges, fairly simple menu but the food is delicious, well cooked and beautifully presented, and huge portions. I had one of the best steaks I have ever had here, can recommend this welcoming and friendly restaurant.

My wife and I visited around 8pm on a Sunday and the restaurant was nearly full, so if you can book in advance, it's advisable. There were no couples tables available but the friendly staff sat us at a larger table to wait and gave us menus to look at. We were seated as soon as a table was available (5 mins) and they took our order right away. The waiter who served us was very friendly, spoke perfect English and even told a few witty jokes.
Most importantly the food was delicious with good portion size and served promptly. My wife had some kind of fish stew and said it was very good. I had the traditional Flemish beef stew which was also very good, the sauce was rich but not overpowering and all accompaniments were prepared well. We also both had some variant on an ice cream dessert which was very tasty and generously portioned too.
The restaurant is a modest size and has a homely atmosphere with traditional decor and the odd quirk. All in all we paid €95 including tip for two meals, no starters, two desserts and a bottle of wine. Set menus were available and compared to other restaurants in the area this represented pretty good value. Great place, would highly recommend.
