An amazing meal for 13 of us! Food was well priced for the area (which is expensive for many English visitors) but the size and quality was amazing. Friendly staff and swift service. Plus the best toilets in Ypres!!!! Wish we'd found it sooner!!!

We picked Petrus as it looked so inviting on the square. We hadn't booked so were very lucky to get a seat as it was busy. Good choice of beers and really good service - we were well looked after. Garlic bread was lush, and the lasagne portion was massive, so, so tasty. In fact, when I'm back in Ieper,... More

Visited Ypres to watch the last post ceremony. The place we had in mind to eat wasn't open on Mondays so we visited a few places reading the menus, this one appealed more than most. We had a warm welcome, the menu houses were plentiful. I had moules in beer, they were very tasty and lots of them. My husband... More

We came here twice- first for coffees and then for dinner. Service is excellent. The draft Belgian beer is very good- and the gin and tonics are huge. We had Flemish stew, frites , and salad- excellent, and the warm apple pie was delicious. If you are in Ypres don't miss it. Excellent English spoken by the staff as well.

We have been here before on previous trips. Food is good at a fair price and the staff are very friendly. The Flemish stew is recommended along with the lasagne. All have generous portions. The only downside was, they were closed early one night and we had to go to a different resturant

Back again in Ypres and now whenever we come Petrus is the only restaurant we use when in the town square. Really friendly staff, especially Ben who we always enjoy chatting to he is such a nice guy (originally from England). The food is excellent, lots of choice on the menu and huge portions. This time tried the hot goats... More

We are on a four night visit to Ypres and really enjoy the town. Just for fun we will have the same dish in different resturants each night. This was the first. The staff were excellent, all you could hope for. The resturant itself very clean and tidy but having been refurbished in a very modern style lost so ommbiance.... More

Arrived in Ypres just in time for lunch, and decided to give this place a try as only wanted a light lunch and unsure where to eat. 2 lunches and 2 evening meals later, we were hooked. Food is fresh and portions plentiful, and plenty of choice for all tastes Tried the omelettes (they come with a lovely mixed salad),... More

My son and I called in for some seafood for lunch. After much research we decided on this one. Lovely to sit outside with a couple of local beers and well cooked seafood on a sunny lunch. It was busy but we timed our late visit between two peaks so were able to sit for a while after. The waiter... More
