A small restaurant, hidden on a narrow street, not far from the theatre. We came here following a recommendation, otherwise probably we might not found it. The food was well prepared, as you expect it to be, in the spirit of local cuisine. Friendly and helpful service. Plain decoration.

This little gem is hidden away in a narrow lane not far from the town square. Food was excellent and the service was great. It was very busy and we were lucky to get a table as it is a small restaurant. Advisable to book. Well worth a visit.

This is a funny place: none of the décor, the printed menu, the location and the food itself seem to go together but it's great. The owners obviously really care about what they do. I'd highly recommend eating here

Food was nice, however when you order 2 beers and receive 2 very small glasses of something fizzy, just top this off the rest of the bottle is served to the other guest's free of charge and you get stung €21.5 for the privilege.

Recommended by our hotel proprietor, this is a fantastic little bistro/restaurant offering local cuisine to a high standard but at reasonable prices. The Flemish beef stew was probably the best I've ever had and all other dishes looked equally tasty. The place just oozes atmosphere and service was extremely efficient but we didn't feel at all rushed. A place we... More

My husband and I visited on a recommendation and it was well worth it. Local wines were delicious and we ate two local specialities, Cotes d'agneau grilles maroilles (lamb ribs in honey and herbs accompanied by cheese sauce) and Carbonnade flamande ( braised beef in beer). Delicious, magnifique. Well priced and a very helpful waitress.

Went two nights running recently, friendly welcome, informative waitress and lovely regional dishes. Recommend the French tapas style dishes, consisting of several small dishes.
