Nothing much positive to say. Recommended by a relative who had previously eaten there frequently when on battlefield tours. He took three of us along and was rather embarrassed that he had. New decor must appeal to some but we found it stark and unwelcoming. Food was average, portions modest. Had to request bread and was given four thin slices... More

Have had many meals in the Old Tom over the years. The food has always been both good and plentiful but the place was beginning to get a bit long in the tooth. Now the decor is bright welcoming and very modern. The staff are also both professional and friendly. No doubt I will dine there again next time I... More

Nicely done up restaurant with attentive waiters who all seem to speak perfect English. All the food seemed to be very good but the mussels were exceptional! We were treated to a free home made starter of fish pate which was a lovely touch and much appreciated. Good wine list too and great Belgian beers. Clean and comfortable surroundings.

We had a really nice heal here. Well prepared and presented. Two of our party wanted something just a bit different from what is on the menu. We got it and there was no problem. The service was good and very friendly.

Had a nice meal and a few beers. Waiter was very accommodating and kept offering us extra chips for no additional cost when we had demolished the first two bowls. He also ensured the sun blinds shielded us as the day warmed up.

Poor waiter doing his best but let down by shocking kitchen and an owner/manager who would rather talk to his mates than consider dining customers for more than a millisecond. Two hour wait to receive croquettes (fewer than advertised on the menu) and possibly the worst frites in Belgium. The river eel had clearly been drowned in a slick of... More

Me and my wife visited this restaurant and we must say, it was a real disappointment. From the outside in the place looked acceptable, the menu offered a few interesting options at an offerdable rate. However as soon as we entered and seated ourselves there was a very overwhelming smell of sweat and what seemed like cigarette smoke. The floor... More

I visited the beautiful city of Ieper on a beautiful day in March. At noon, I went looking for a place for having lunch. I found Old Tom and I had a delicious omelette with shrimp. I'd to get used to the Belgian mayonnaise ;) The restaurant has a modern appearance. The interior has nice details. The atmosphere I found... More
