We had booked this restaurant as a special treat on a weekend in Bruges, and it was nice but not excellent. We felt like we had done something wrong, with people seated opposite us who had arrived after us, we treated to menus/bread/drinks the minute they arrived, with us waiting to get someones attention. Also was slightly annoyed that i... More

This classic restaurant serves traditional French cuisine, using the best fresh ingredients and a touch of fresh herbs and spices. We enjoyed a four course dinner of lobster, coquilles with cauliflower, sole (I do not eat meat, but I do eat fish at some occasions - which was correctly dealt with) or hare, and a lovely dessert of figs, almond...

We had booked a reservation at the restaurant some time ago, they confirmed via email so we then arranged our travel to get to, and stay in Bruges. When we arrived at the restaurant a rather unpleasant lady told us that we did not have a reservation, and that they had emailed me the day before to let me know.... More

Andy Sarney was looking forward to this special meal with his wife on a trip to Bruges. When he arrived,despite having booked the Golden Herring several months in advance, because he had not replied to an email the previous day double checking the reservation the booking had been cancelled by the restaurant. Special trip ruined and the restaurant was intransigent... More

Beautiful food, exceptional service and an extensive choice of wine for a very reasonable price. We chose this venue to celebrate our last night in Bruges as part of our honeymoon and we were certainly not disappointed.

Have eaten at several restaurants in Bruges, this was perhaps the best of all.Five-course menu, adapted with no problem to one non-meat eater. Every course was delicious and faultless. Service attentive and friendly, lady maitre'd reminded me of a young Helen Mirren.....nothing wrong with that! Not easy to find as tucked away down a back street. Delightful evening for 6... More

This was an amazing experience for me as it was my first time dining in a Michelin Star restaurant. The quality of food was very good. Service was good. The atmosphere was nice and tranquil. I found menu and wine overpriced but then again this is a Michelin Star restaurant. It was raining when we were leaving. The staff gave... More

Lovely food, good attentive fine dining staff. We did not have wine but sparkling water. 2 x 500ml bottles and our bill increased by 40 Euro! Besides that the food was lovely although beware of duck as I was unaware it is common to have "slugs" from hunting lodged in the meet. Nearly chipped a tooth but makes for a... More

This place is amazing! If you are looking to celebrate something special and experience a taste sensation then we would highly recommend this place. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the decoration is a mix of modern and old. The staff are very attentive and the chef also is a very kind man who came out to meet us at... More
