“Excellent”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

We ate here on a busy Saturday night after emailing to reserve a table, and were very glad we did. The restaurant was really busy and had a nice buzz. Most importantly, the food was great. Two of us had the Flemish stew, which was a really good choice. The other two had roast chicken, which they really enjoyed. All came with a huge bowl of chips to share, as well as a lovely big bowl of salad.

It's good value as well - four main courses, two large beers and five soft drinks came to €68.

“Great food”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

We have travelled to Ypres or the last 4 years and will be back again in Aug/Sept this year.
And ever year we always stop off here to eat, the food and service have always been good and the stew is excellent and comes with mountains of chips

“Superb Meal”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Ate there after attending the last post at the Menin Gate.
I had the 20 Euro menu of vegetable soup, Flemish stew & Ice Cream. Soup was just what was needed on a cold, wet night, very tasty with a real hint of onion.
The stew was magnificent, beef was superbly cooked and the gravy was so tasty the first thing I did when I got back was look up the recipe (cooked in dark beer by all accounts).
Great value, would highly recommend a visit if you're in Ypres

“First class ....,”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Called here after watching the last post at the menin gate.
Being abroad I wanted to try a local dish and I was glad I did. Can't recommend the Flemish beef stew highly enough it was melt in the mouth beef and the gravy was amazing, full marks and will be back for dinner tomorrow, helpful staff and an English menu also made for a great meal.

“een van de beste cote a l'os!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

we looked for this restaurant after reading the positive comments from Tripadvisor. When we first got there, we were a bit suprised because the restaurant is rather big, with snooker tables at the back.. not quite a small cosy place as other places we saw around. And what an excellent surprise we had there! Yes, the staff may be seen as slightly 'distant' some tripadvisor critics posted, but yet very attentive and extremely professional! We were recommended either the Mussels or the Cote a l'Os, and indeed we had one of the best cote a l'os we ever had! Perfectly cooked, no fat, no nervew indisde the meat, perfectly sliced, topped with some herbs, cherry tomatoes and parsley. Accompanied with good warm sauces, and fresh salad aside. We will definitely go there and recommend this place, not one of the tourist trap restaurant!
