Visited without a reservation and was lucky to get one of only two spare tables. Quite a list of warm tapas with a few cold meats and cheese. I only ordered three dishes but could barely eat more than half of the food as the portions are of good size. Served with bread and various dips. Good friendly service, not... More

Don't let the fancy and perhaps a bit cold interior fool you. This tapas-bar is perfect for a delicious night out. Friendly staff, tasty food and a lovely calm athmosphere. We came in quite late (after 9) but that was not a problem. Prices are right, choices extented. We will definitely come back here.

A good tapas bar with typical Spanish choices all washed down with Belgium beer , how European can one get.

We visited Het Zilveren Hoofd on Easter Sunday, and were lucky enough to get a table for two even though we hadn't booked in advance. The atmosphere was very pleasant and we received excellent service throughout our visit. The only difficult part was choosing which tapas we wanted to try from the menu. Everything we ordered was delicious, and we... More

Tapas. Good selection. Delicious food. Had the world's largest prawns! Seems like a local restaurant. Just good food, comfortable atmosphere. Casual, but good service. Avoid the sabayon. It is on the menu, but took almost 20 minutes to get. Would go back again.

Het Zilveren Hoofd is a great Tapas restaurant in the city centre of Ypres. Daily fresh choice of Spanish Tapas. Very tasty and a lot of choice. Nice Spanish music. Very friendly staff. Great atmosphere. This is a place were the locals eat!

The Flemish name, meaning the silver head, doesn't reveal at all any Hispanic touch but as soon as you enter the place you're overpowered by the southern smells. You can choose tapas or raciones ( larger portions ) out of a large range of Spanish specialities. We picked out raciones of tuna, octopus, calamares, razor shells, cockles : all were... More

After visiting this place many times and getting to know the owner, Lore, I was very disappointed to find out she no longer owns it and it has been turned into Tapas only. When we walked in a guy came over to our table and threw menu's on our table and asked if we wanted anything to drink and tutted... More

Had a nice dinner here prior to going to the Last Post ceremony. They have a reasonably (though not extensive) range of tapas, friendly and helpful staff (who speak at least Flemish/Dutch, English, and Spanish), and a nice location just a short walk off the very busy main square. Highly recommended!
