Since many years we admire the one man show of Marijke in a typical setting, the flat farmersland behind the Belgian coast, the restaurant offers a view on the fields through large windows.
Marijke changes the menu every month, but the food stays delicious, she keeps the tradition of the classical belgian - french cuisine but adds each time those nuances of new trends in cooking that have proven their value.
The restaurant has only a few tables, iis run by Marijke alone , with some help for putting the dishes on the table, t is like being invited by a nice aunt.

Had a nice meal here. Good beef on the grill. But overpriced for the area: almost 140 euros for two persons starter, main and a bottle of wine... In Bruges You pay the same or less but here You are in the cheapest community to buy a house in the area of big Bruges but not to have a dinner as it seems. Also if You have to use the bathroom You have to go outside again through the cold and rain, cross the Terrace, avoid a big BMW that's parked against the bushes and make a big circle to the bathroom area. Passed this place a few times the last few weeks and was interested to eat here because there's always plenty of customers inside. Looked forward to dine here, but it was a bit of a dissappointment. Nice food but we've had simular for a cheaper price. Will be looking out for a more affordable place to dine in the future in the area Ichtegem, Torhout.

What a great discovery. We really enjoyed everything about the food. Light, tasteful and beautiful looking in our plates. They know how to care for the details. The new contemporary decoration combines white walls with wooden and warm colors perfectly. The atmosphere is almost perfect. A bit chic but not snobby. Service was impeccable and the chef's wife was very good in advising about the appropriate wine. Wine list selection is great: not too many but enough to be able to find something you like. A place to go if you are in the area for sure!

Water en Vuur

Reviewed By ShroppieSaint - Shropshire

Looking fairly unprepossessing from the outside, this restaurant packs a knockout punch for its sheer theatricality. Opening the door, you find yourself looking down into a space something like a cross between the Titanic, an opium den, and the Tate Modern. And just when you start thinking this must be a case of style over substance, the food arrives - not without its share of drama, but certainly with no sacrifice of flavour. What's more, it's unpretentious - hard to pull off for a fairly expensive restaurant that delivers such a memorable experience.
Veggie and vegan choices aplenty - and imaginative dishes, too - made it even more of a treat for us.
Just one note: if your kids are fussy eaters, leave them at home.

Very nice authentic eating place. Normal people in a cousy interior. Not to posh. Great price/quality. Big plates with enough food, You won't leave Your table feeling hungry. The have a grill with charcoal! You don't find that in many places nowadays. Fair price. Big place with lots of tables but also many people. So if You can make a reservation before You go. We were lucky they had one table left for us do we didn't have to wait.

beautiful building in local architecture style - we were looking forward for a snack in the sun on the Terrace. No food served on Terrace. OK for drinks ; but we waited for half hour to be served whilst Terrace was not full and inside their were ample people. no repeat visit for us.

Les Salons St Germain

Reviewed By Staessen - Ichtegem, Belgium

Been here for brunch, been here a few years ago and now again but been to a lot of places where you can brunch and here is not the best place. For the amount of 65 euros??? In other places You pay from 57 euros upto 59 euros but get much more service and hospitality. You get only 1 glass of cava, the You get Your lobster very quickly. It's a half baby lobster and not every lobster has the same size. And then You can go to thu buffet where You have to wait in a very long line for several minutes to pick Your plate. The let everybody go to the buffet at the same time, so You get a very long waiting queue. It's like throwing 1 bowl of food to 10 hungry dogs: everybody throws himself at the buffet. In other places with such a brunch: the boss and staff come to a few tables to tell You You can go to the buffet. Not all the tables at the same time, this system resultst in normal waiting lines. So it's all in the arrangement and organisation. And they ask much more money than other places. For dessert we were waiting and waiting at our table because the queue was very very long but by the time the queue was a bit more normal some customers had been 3 times allready to the dessert buffet... No more this place for me, rather go to other places where You can sit more relaxed and really enjoy the food and service.

Klassieke keuken met smaakvolle lekkere gerechten. Aangenaam om te zitten en vriendelijke bediening. Aangenaam warm in de zaak want tegenwoordig zijn er horecazaken die besparen op de verwarming. Ruime grote parking. Ook tijdens de week op donderdagavond meer dan half volle bezetting. Ga er nog eens terug
