Sadly we arrived too late on Sunday evening to eat but we did see excellent dishes of delicious looking food being enjoyed. We stopped for a scrumptious Kreik beer before nipping across the square to the amazing Burger Restaurant. Your beer arrives with a little dish of tiny,round, tasty nibbles - nice touch that all the bars in Ypres do.

Didn’t eat in the restaurant, but we did have a drink or three, so my review is on this, the beer and the service, firstly the beer was very good, so good we did it twice, well three times actually, apart from this we were served by a very helpful waiter, in all a very pleasant evening.

We visited Old Tom Restaurant after it was recommended to one of our group, we were in Ypres to go to the last post service at the Menin Gate and had booked a table for our group of 17 at 7.00pm.
On arrival drinks orders were taken and we were advised that because we were a large group we could not order more than 5 different choices from the food menu between us which we thought a bit strange but a lot or people wanted the same anyway.
The food started to arrive but the people who had ordered last got their food first, I think this was because they were closest to the kitchen. Then there was a delay in the rest of the food arriving, I'm not sure if we got an explanation as to why this was, but by the time the rest of the food arrived the first lot had finished theirs.
One of the group that had ordered the Flemish Stew got a plate of gravy when his arrived and when he complained there was no meat on the plate it was taken away only to be bought back the same with the explanation that one of the women in our group had been given more meat than him! Hardly our fault. The food continued to arrive in dribs and drabs until we had all eaten by which time it was too late for us to have a dessert because we would miss the service, I doubt anyone would have had one after the appalling waiter service we had received anyway, they were bordering on rude.
When it came to paying the bill we were told we could not pay individually it had got to paid as a group.
Needless to say we did not leave a tip.

Stopped for a cappuccino and a milkshake. The coffee came with a biscuit and a chocolate and was just a basic coffee not a cappuccino, the milkshake was like something from the 70’s and very basic for €5.50! This is why the place on the corner opposite the bread shop was full and here wasn’t, a lesson learnt!
