Hoping for a high class meal in this high-priced restaurant, the evening shrank down to one of our worst dining disappointments ever. Only one menu could be chosen (without prior warning!), but that was okay, since it looked good. Much worse is that there were...More

We went here for dinner on Saturday night, and thoroughly enjoyed the food & experience. It's a small establishment (about 12 tables) with simple & elegant decorations. Service was great, we didn't find staff unfriendly as some other reviewers have mentioned. Two set menus are...More

I dined here a couple nights ago on a trip to Brugge with family. Overall, excellent meal, a true culinary experience. We had the mid-week set menu, and every dish was exceptional. The service also was impeccable, what one would expect of a Michelin-starred venue,...More

This is an extremely civilised Michelin-starred restaurant run exceptionally professionally by husband and wife team. It is centrally, but quietly located in a delightful ivy clad period building and the interior oozes class and sophistication. The food is immaculate: quite delicious but above anything it...More

Great atmosphere and decoration of the restaurant. Modern but elegant and relaxed contemporary design. As for the food clever mix of flavors and product tastes. Fish and see food excellently cooked but duck's meat quality was not as good. In short, well-balanced and structured menu...More
