“La Barakka, not only for food, also for the carillon....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Tripadvisor's question: have you been to La Barakka? I'd feel ashame if I should not have been there, in my home town!
The place is easy to find: it is opposite the church, next to the library, 50 meters from the cultural center, at walking distance from the railwaystation. I wrote "church" but I wanted to say "carillon"...
The restaurant of La Barakka calls itself "Het Zalig niets doen" which means: "Lovely doing nothing". Most important thing is drinking your coffee/eating your lunch or dinner and listening to the carillon of the church every 15 minutes.!
You can go to La Barakka every hour of the day: even for just a coffee with a piece of cake... or a daily set luch for € 12,00 only! or for their monthly dinner (5 courses, aperitif, wine and coffee incl) Food is more than ok, the cook finished his study at the famous Hotelschool at Koksijde.

A special word about the concerts at the carrillon: extremely very famous in July and August; every Wednesday..at 8 pm. This year(2012) they started with "Valse opus 64 from Chopin" and they end the last Wednesday of August with "Smoke gets in your eyes"; "The girl of Epanema"; "Somewhere over the rainbow"...

On the carrillon for free? Yes, on the carrillon for free!

At La Barakka you only pay for the food/drinks: the magic of sitting there is for free....
