Restaurant in Ypres

Hello

I hope this isn't a too frivolous use of the forum, but, I am going to Ypres next Friday and wanted to know the name of a particular restaurant so I could book it.

It is the "posh" one on the left-hand side of the Grand Place opposite the Cloth Hall if you are standing with your back to the Menin Gate. I went there last year; pricey, but very good.

Anybody help?

Thanks

Ian

Sounds like the restaurant in the Hotel Regina.

Right opposite the entrance to the Cloth Hall and the fountain in the square - on the corner.

Please don't start Mr Guthrie off on the "You say Der Anker, I say Den Anker" argument again. <_<

What about the seemingly universal potato croquettes?

The quite magnificent Flemish stew could only be improved by serving it with boiled spuds, suet dumplings, carrots and cabbage. Now that would be a feast but not much chance I feel.
