Very Nice staff, good cuisine and a very nice building. Highly recommended for a casual lunch as we had. Also the scene for part of the film In Bruges.

I was recommended this restaurant by my hotel and they did not disappoint. Great central location, great service and atmosphere. I had the normal steak (not the more expensive Irish one) and it was the best i have ever had. I was told they have live jazz bands on some nights.

When checking out restaurants in Brugge, you will see that many have an identical menu, this place is different, a creative menu with traditional Belgium dishes but also italian and asian dishes.

Not easy booking for 19 people on a Saturday evening, but Yannic was very helpful in organising our visit and it was a huge success. Everyone loved the food and service and would all return another time. My Rib-Eye was lovely.
