The restaurant looked attractive with varied menu . However response from manager to a disappointing steak was unfriendly and unsympathetic .

We've eaten here a number of times and each time it has been as good as the first time. Excellent tasty food, good service and a lovely interior. Definitely a place to eat if you're spending time in Ieper.
