We ate here to celebrate my mother in law's 70th birthday - and it was wonderful! We had the set menu and the service was perfect and the food totally delicious. Pudding was amazing! I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Delicious food located on a side street. This was a great find. It was recommended by a local person. It is owned by a husband and wife and the husband is the chef. It is not a glitzy restaurant but rather quaint and cozy atmosphere....More

Delightfully cosy restaurant run by a charming couple. She does front of house and he is the chef. The food is exquisite and beautifully presented. Well priced for very high quality produce. Service is charming and helpful.

They speak excellent English. Use WhatsApp and give them a call or get the concierge at your hotel to book for you. In fact, if you’re staying in Bruges, it’s best to get your concierge to book for you anyway. Do NOT just... More
