A location amid the delightful 16th-century Vlaeykensgang courtyard's jumble of cafes, restaurants, and antique apartments all but guarantees a pleasant atmosphere here. This used to be a Michelin Star-rated restaurant, until owner and chef Marc Paesbrugghe got tired of staying on the Michelin treadmill and chose to do something less stressful and more fun. Reopened as a notably relaxed brasserie-restaurant, in a sparely elegant setting that's flooded with light from the old-world courtyard through big, arched windows, it still retains a commitment to good food. A fine seafood dish is the waterzooi van staartvis (waterzooi with poached monkfish), a traditional Flemish stew that's more commonly made with chicken nowadays but that started out with fish.
