My friend knew this restaurant and told me of the good vegetarian moussaka, hence I was curious. Moussaka was a bit tasteless... just food... nothing wow. My friend told me, it used to be better before, served in a stone tray. Now it was just a piece of moussaka on a plate with some salad. Service was ok, but nothing... More

Food was basic, restaurant is basic, could do with a refurb, service was minimal and very expensive for what you receive. Should have known as we were the only diners.

There was a lot of choice on the menu. I went for the mixed grill (chicken, steak, sausages), rice and salad. Average. Wanted to go to the Olive Tree but it was fully booked.

We turned up without booking on a very busy Saturday evening. We were welcomed and found a table. The food was lovely, house red good, free cake to finish, marvellous! Waiting staff/owners made us feel very comfortable. Would recommend.

We went to this restaurant on our last night in Bruges. It was very busy as it was February 14th. The staff were very friendly and the food was very good. A very good meal which was a little on the pricey side compared to other meals we had.

My partner and I checked this place out on our recent trip to Bruges. I had the lamb in tomato sauce with potatoes and my partner grabbed the grilled meats plate. Both were well cooked with fresh herbs and spices. Very reasonable portion sizes and the staff are friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend!
