Close to our hotel we went in about 1.40 for a late lunch which was to be moules frites twice and a bottle of wine. At €70 that is a little pricey but, at current exchange rates, probably not too bad. A small, friendly restaurant...More

It's a three minute walk from the main square. Head north from Markt on Geernaartstraat, turn left onto Geldmuntstraatand and turn right onto Sint-Jakobsstraat.
