For our anniversary we wanted a quiet and classic venue to relax and dine in comfortable surroundings. Bruges has a huge array of eating venues and it can become overwhelming where to eat. After walking around and discovering this restaurant by the canal and archway to the peaceful and tranquil gardens of the Benedictine nuns ( Begijnhof ) the outside... More

We traveled for 19 days and ate out three meals a day. There were four restaurants that should be considered destination places to eat. This is one of them. Make reservations, ask for Isabelle and sit back and enjoy an amazing meal.

Managed to get a seat at the window overlooking the pond, which was a beautiful view. The restaurant has an open charcoal grill, which is where a select choice of the meats are cooked. I agreed with my partner that we didn't think much to his steak with pepper sauce, but I really enjoyed the mixed grill that was cooked... More

Homely food, but careful as everything adds up esp at €5+ for bottle of still water and €4+ for double espresso!!! It is nice enough, with lovely friendly staff. Open fire for the grilled meats but not worth the €17 difference to Michelin quality the night before!!

We had dinner at this restaurant as part of a tour package. My meal was delicious, I had the beef stew, Belgian style. The meat was so tender and tasty. Their desserts were equally decadent. The staff members were very friendly and accommodating to our needs. We only spent a day in Bruge and would like to return for a... More

Other reviews had been positive and we liked the look of the place. So I dropped by to make a reservation. The proprietor is a genial man and two hours later he remembered me and had arranged a perfect table for two, table one, near the open grill where during the evening he performed minor miracles continually. The dishes were... More

the interior is so beautiful and compelling, so maybe for a drink it would be charming. Mussels and fries were just commercial grade- no flavour at all which is amazing given the mussels were fresh! oh well. Nice service, except the radio was blaring at an uncomfortable level- and we were the only patrons on a weds afternoon!

We had a very pleasant couple of hours having lunch at this restaurant. Both of our meals were very good, though my husband would have liked the beef in his flemish stew to be a little more tender to be perfect! They serve home made mayonnaise with the fries, which was just exceptional. The service was great and the ambience... More

The set lunch menu (€15.95) was good value with several starter and main choices. The food was very good - quite rich, great flavours. Frites a little thicker cut than other places we ate - no my personal preference. Good service, despite it being very quiet in there. The upstairs has some fantastic stained glass panels, and the view over... More
