After a busy morning doing the "museum walk" we were pleased to find a good restaurant so close to the cloth hall in Ypres market square. There are many to chose. We did well. I had another Belgian specialty, chicken and mushroom volauvant - delicious. Great ambience sitting outside but shaded from the sun, watching the world go by. Good value. Recommended

We needed a quick meal prior to attending the Menin Gate ceremony. This restaurant, which we visited last September, was clearly fairly busy - a good sign - yet found us a table within 5 minutes. Once again, the Flemish Beef Stew was excellent, and what appears to be a modestly sized bowl holds a sizeable portion of stew. All very good. The staff were friendly and engaged us in conversation and recommended several local beers.
We needed to be in and out in 45 minutes and we were. However, I have no doubt that we could have stayed longer had we wished to. As it is, most of the restaurants seem to empty at about 7:30 / 7:45 as the clientele makes its way to the Menin Gate.

We've been coming to Ieper for many years and have always enjoyed our meals at this restaurant.

I'm slightly surprised to read some less than positive comments about the service, as we have without exception found it very good. We normally book a table when we arrive mid-afternoon so that we can eat mid-evening, and the staff have always been happy to help us do this, even when they are busy. The atmosphere is very pleasant.

Last Sunday we had a rib-eye steak (cooked perfectly), Sole Meuniere, (both accompanied by salad and fries), beer, wine, water, coffees, a dessert and a liqueur, which came to just under a hundred euros. Everything was excellent.

Right in the middle of the square, 5 minute walk from Menin Gate.

Good sized helpings of good wholesome fare. Reasonable prices in simple clean and tidy restaurant. Must confess we suspected that the chicken stew vol au vent was out of a tin but it worked.

Service was seriously second division, slow and disinterested. We were late and clearly all the staff were thinking about was going home.

But all that said we were hungry, they filled us up with good food, the beer and wine was great, it wasn't that expensive and we had a good laugh with great mates.

Great menu, well cooked food, well presented at a good price but slightly ruined by an over intrusive waitress
