Ate here with my family on a Sunday night when visiting Bruges for the weekend. They had live music on, a really good blues band. 3 course meal with wine while watching the band was the perfect way to end our weekend, all the food was fantastic! The four of us has steak, prawn Thai curry, red Thai chicken curry... More

We had checked trip advisor reviews before our trip to Bruges and this restaurant looked quirky and interesting. It was listed on local guides as a 'romantic' restaurant but I would disagree as the tables were far too closely packed for an intimate dining experience. That said, it did have a good buzz, fair service and there was a good... More

What a lovely warm atmosphere at this lovely restaurant tucked away up some steps. Friendly welcome from staff on arrival and excellent service throughout our meal. The food was delicious and we were given time between courses and never felt rushed to finish. This is a great restaurant to visit, but booking is advisable because this hidden gem is very... More

Can't speak highly enough of the place, the food and the staff including the owner. Friendly, really efficient, service carried out by true professionals where waiting is a valued trade and valuable part of the service/ hospitality industry (where would we all be without them? Maccy dees?) Sunday evening filled up quickly with regulars from, in some cases, 40Km away... More

Atmosphere was great and the initial service was excellent but this wasn't mirrored by the bar service, which was occasionally surly and slow. The food was good but not outstanding- I had the Flemish stew. Drinks menu was extensive from good Belgian beer range, wines and shorts. Worth a visit for the pleasant atmosphere.

We were looking for somewhere to eat on a Sunday night and stumbled across this place. Cellar bars or by contrast, diners on an upper floor (as this was) always seem to have air of mystery about them as you can't initially see what you're letting yourself in for. Now, I'm not one for sitting in packed restaurants but even... More

Went here last minute on a Sat night in Brugge without a reservation and the owner gave us the option to eat at the bar which suited us fine. Menu isn't huge but has a good mix.. prawn in cream sauce and mushrooms on toast for starter were both really good! A little bit expensive but huge portion when they... More

Took a chance on this place and was really happy with our experience. We enjoyed local gin and tonics, with yummy rillettes and house pickled cucumbers. Then mushrooms on toast and a grilled goat cheese salad, washed down with a Chimay Blue beer. Great service and music, absolutely welcoming of our mad cap four year old. Highly recommend.
