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

This is a gem of a restaurant. It is cozy, and intimate with only a few tables, and the grill with wooden fire is situated next to the tables. This restaurant has a select menu of very nice meats and fresh fish. The owner is also the grill chef --- and he is a perfectionist. The service was excellent. I... More

On a cold November afternoon, this place was perfect. The service was friendly and relaxed (the waiter speaks five languages fluently) with a great atmosphere - we were soon chatting with our neighbouring tables and swapping notes on places to visit. The restaurant features a barbecue grill and offers good sized portions of meat or fish. It's not cordon bleu... More

It was cold outside and so we entered this cosy little restaurant for lunch and were not disappointed. The fireplace is used as a barbecue, but also adds warmth and a great atmosphere to this small but cosy place. We ordered the grilled scampi and shrimp croquettes which were both delicious and satisfying. Very friendly staff, good wine, reasonable prices.... More

Our server was super friendly and really helpful when we were choosing what to have (he was from Bruge but spoke English with an irish twang!). Cannot stress enough how good he was. Very professional. The food was ok and seeing the open barbecue was very impressive too. What really let our experience down however, was that it took over... More
