eating out nearby

You can come to us for dinner almost every evening.
but sometimes our kitchen door also closes for an evening, or maybe you would like a snack elsewhere ...

that is of course also possible!
culinary we are certainly not shy with restaurants in the area.
As a part of Bruges, a stone's throw from Damme, Knokke, Blankenberge and the other small villages in the area, there are many nice addresses, from a small quick bite to eating with an asterisk, feel free to ask for advice.
