The staff were great. I love the Belgium sense of humour. We had drinks at the bar the first night and then came back for dinner. Great stews and the mussels looked really good.

Amazing food and a nice atmosphere. Really enjoyed the vegetarian stew, lovely for a cold winters day. The staff were also very friendly.

Small (maybe 10 tables) place with very good food, run by a husband (chef) & wife (wait-person). This place was on a side street less than 30 meters from Casselbergh hotel. We went for lunch and had the best steak (special of the day) I have had in Europe. Our friends went in the evening and they too had a... More

Stopped in here for lunch on a rainy afternoon. The restaurant was warm and inviting. We only about 6 or 7 tables, it was small, but cozy. Both my friend and I had the Flemish beef stew, which was wonderful. Warm, hearty, sweet - perfect for a rainy day. It was served with a generous and tasty salad and a... More

We ordered their Brugge cheese and charcuterie fondue, and it tasted fab. Our only quibble is that the ham was so good that we would have been happy to pay for seconds and thirds, but the waitress told us that this was all you could order. So we otdered a second plate and got considerably less meat. When we tried... More

We don't charge for extra's like the other restaurants do, because we are a small family restaurant and NOT a toerist trap! We served you a plat of parmaham, you asked a second one and we did...

Not really much of a review of the food, more of the ethos of the place. My wife and I visited the restaurant at 1pm on Thursday 13 Aug with the aim of booking a table for the evening. The waitress said they were closing at 6pm that day as the chef had cut his finger earlier in the week... More

Chanced on this lovely place and even though they were not technically open we were seated and brought drinks. The Flemish fondue was fabulous as was the mixed grill and shrimp. All was more than ample, gourmet and as fresh and special as anyone could want. I would go often if I lived in brugge as its special and at... More

We found this restaurant just outside the Market. The place specializes in fondue, but the mussels were on special so we tried them. The mussels came with gazpacho and fries. The soup was good but peppery and fries were average. The mussels were good. The restaurant had a nice ambiance but the service was a little slow.

Dear, Thank you for your review! Everything we serve is home made! We peel our potatoes and they are handcut fries. So fresher than this is impossible to find. We are sorry you did not like our fresh fries and we appologize for the slower service, it was 35 degrees and very busy, we hope you understand. We still hope... More

Such a surprise a place like that one just near the touristic Bruges streets. Lovely and peaceful terrace inside where we enjoyed a lunch formula. Gazpacho and moules. As simple as good, and cheap for the zone. The menu and the wine list also looked good. We save it for the next visit...

Great food- we had the jalapeño poppers, Belgium cheese fondue and salad. Service was slow-only the waitress and cook on a Saturday night. Otherwise great!
