what a surprise to find a restaurant of this quality serving beautifully cooked fish in comfortable surroundings at prices no one could moan about. Well done everyone my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening with you.

Stumbled across this place by chance after Roger came out and had a chat with us. The oysters were good, but the real show stopper was the Kreeftenmenu. It came with 2 half lobsters cooked 2 ways. A lobster bisque with Armagnac and a Creme Brûlée, all for €50. The food was delicious, the service was great and I couldn't... More

Food is average, not exceptional neither disappointing. The place is well decorated and clean. The main issue is the service, it is not that it is slow or unaccomodating or rude, it is indeed quick and polite but... lacks basic skills for a restaurant with above the mid range pricing. E.g. having completed one course of our starters, we politely... More

Thanks to a last minute, unpredictable, change of plans we found ourselves needing to find somewhere for dinner, for 4 on the Saturday before Valentines day at about 20.00. While we could have had chips in the Markt that wasn't really what we planned - especially as we had done that for lunch. Now, while Bruges has a lot of... More

We checked out the TripAdvisor comments before making a confident reservation. What a great place it is - earlier positive reviews were on point. Fish is their speciality and we were certainly not disappointed! A selection of complimentary tasters includes tasty sea-snails, baby shrimps and gorgeous olives. My starter was the Tuna, thinly sliced and delicious; my wife really enjoyed... More

First you are served shrimps,olives and periwinkles which were excellent and followed by the Bouillabaisse which was very good. The restaurant was charming with a goos ambiance. Staff very friendly and helpful

We came here for the lobster and had the lobster menu. Three courses of lobster -a salad tiède, a lobster bisque, and oven baked lobster, followed, if you could still wield a spoon, by crème brûlée. An amuse bouche of winkles and whelks, nicely cooked, preceded the main event. I have to say the lobster was perfectly cooked, tender and... More

A very pleasant restaurant with friendly staff. The standard of cooking and presentation is very high. I had the glorious fish soup followed by eels in a herb sauce.

We came here on our last evening in Brugge. My wife, a big seafood fan was determined to try it and so we walked down from our hotel. The restaurant was empty...we were the only people in there...although there was some kind of running event happening which had everybody outside, so perhaps this had something to do with it. Despite... More
