We both had rabbit casserole which was a simple satisfying meal. Our host was most obliging and the surroundings traditional warm and friendly. Great ambiance.

On the advice of Veronique owner of b&b hortensia where we were staying (11/7-14/7/14) we managed to get the only table that was not reserved (so if you haven't booked don't let it put you off going there) on Saturday night about 7.45.
Our party of 4 adult males chose :3 pork shoulders and one opted for the ham shank.
The pork shoulder was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth,not over one or chewylike an old ford escort inner tube. The veg and gravy (or is it shoo,shoe,sioux these days?) Were a perfect compliment.we were served mash potato which was out of this world,on enquiring fennel and dripping(possibly lost in translation) was mixed/mashed in ,lovely .The group member who selected the ham shank really enjoyed it saying it was cooked to perfection.I can vouch for that as I had half of it as it was too much for him,again delicious.
With drinks and 3 coffee's the total was about 85 Euros .(each meal less than £15) .
So if your in Ypres make sure you go here.

What an amazing find! We were in Ypres in 2012 for Armistice day and came across this restaurant. The owner was friendly and the food was excellent. It was so good that I'm planning a stop over in August just to pop in.
Highly recommended.

This is the spot for authentic Belgian cuisine in a rustic setting. This family owned restaurant was outstanding in its small cozy atmosphere. We chose a rabbit dish that was extremely tasty. Service was attentive and courteous. We will definitely visit again!
