Shared the most incredible chateaubriand steak with my boyfriend this evening. We had escargot and shrimp croquettes to start followed by the steak (which came with chips and salad) and paid extra for some béarnaise sauce. The food was phenomenal and the service was excellent. Such a wonderful last meal to top off an amazing trip to Bruges. Cannot recommend... More

The meat is probably the best meat I have ever tasted. The taste of it is superb. The first night we had venison and fillet. And the next time we went we shared the Chateaubriand. Worth every penny. The chef and the staff are friendly talkative and attentive. When we visit bruge again we will be making a booking for... More

We were passing and liked the look of this small restaurant which has a wood fired grill. Meat and fish are cooked to order on the grill but do not overlook the first course options - very good soup and delicious shrimp croquettes. Service was excellent and the prices reasonable given the quality of the food. We wished we had... More

We dined here last Sunday night and enjoyed it so much we booked for Monday night as well. All the meat and fish is cooked on a wood fire and grill in the corner of the restaurant. Specials on offer were Hare fillet and Venison fillet which we sampled along with a mixed grill and salmon steaks. All come with... More

Called in here for a light lunch with friends while walking round Bruges. We were a bit concerned that there was no-one else in when we arrived but it soon filled up. We only had a light lunch - soup, croquettes etc but the grilled (on an open BBQ) meat and fish going past looked delicious and had we been... More

We stayed in Bruges Friday-Monday this time around and could not get a table here until the Sunday, as it is small but very popular, you must book! We have been before in 2012 and 2013 so we had high expectations. We weren't disappointed! Great atmosphere, friendly and accommodating staff- (I love the Irish twang/accent) Bottomless fries and salad, a... More

Jolly local restaurant near the Minnewater that grills steaks etc. on an open fire (which can make you rather too warm if you are seated near it!). Nice laid-back feel but the tables are very closely-packed hence only 4 stars. The food is good honest Belgian fayre, nothing too complicated. Friendly welcome from the proprietor and his team, and excellent... More

We tried this place on a whim and it was the best meal we had in Bruges. We all had croquettes to start, these were a meal in themselves. Then we all chose various meats which were cooked on the grill by the door. It was great theatre watching the chef cook everything to order. I had salmon and we... More
