I did read about this place in a review and was so glad I dragged my family to eat here. Very understated and you would probably walk past it as the outside is not particularly 'flashy'... Great food, reasonably priced and a lovely atmosphere

The food was good and their award winning Burger was delicious! I had the spaghetti and absolutely loved it! The waiters were very nice and apologetic for being rushed off their feet. I would recommend getting there early we arrived on a Sunday at 7:20 and got the last table and by 7:30 they had to turn people away.

We were a bit latte in the evening and most places were full. I had this place shortlisted and as we were on the other side of the city we got there a bit late, but luckily enough they served food until 11! Again, prices are cheaper that in central Brugge. Food is good enough, mostly pastas, lasagnas, coque monsieur/madamme,... More

Ok, I exgagerate, they may not be the worst spaghetti ever, but these are the worst spaghetti I ate in the last few years, for sure. They remind me the ones that they served in Pisa University canteen, and that all the students tried to avoid. I must say that I am italian and therefore I tend to avoid italian... More

This restaurant was recommended by a Belgian couple we met in Ghent. The food was delicious and the beer---AMAZING. It was raining that day so we were able to relax, eat, laugh and drink with not a care in the world. I would recommend their pasta dishes as they were really delicious. Great service as well!

This restaurant was recommended by a waiter at another restaurant that was not serving yet on the Saturday we visited Bruges. Situated next to a park outside of the main tourist area it seemed a good spot to relax and get away from the crowds. It was. There seemed to be a lot of local business as many of the... More

Me and my partner ate here on Thursday evening for dinner. This was round the corner from our hotel and was perfect for a midweek evening. The gentleman who served us spoke very good English and was very helpful in picking a Beer to our taste. I had the carbonara which was huge and really tasty and my partner had... More

Really good, friendly service and lovely food! We ordered spaghetti bolognese which was cooked in a dish with a lovely cheesy crust, like a spaghetti bolognese pie- divine! Had a really enjoyable lunch and will definitely be going back next time. Thanks!

Situated next to a park away from the main tourist throngs. Perfect for a relaxed lazy lunch. Friendly helpful staff. Delicious Belgian food. We sat outside in the marquee just in front of the restaurant. It's really quirky inside as well. It is a small restaurant so probably not suitable for very large groups.
