Respond to Review of Komkommertijd - temporarily closed

Review: Don't be put off by the outside of this place - once through the corridor it opens up to a small open courtyard with tables, beyond which is the modern restaurant. We hadn't booked but were shown to a table in the courtyard by what appeared to be the only member of serving staff, but who was working hard and we didn't have to wait long for our drinks. They have a good drinks and wine list. The beauty of the buffet is that you can have as much or as little as you like, and go back for seconds or thirds of your favourite dishes. There was a tasty mushroom soup to start with, if wanted, (but sadly no bread to go with it). There was a selection of about 4 hot main courses, which were labeled but I can't read Flemish - there was a type of tofu sweet and sour, a gorgeous potato and onion dish in a creamy sauce, also a chickpea curry with a lovely kick of spice. A choice of rice, vegetables and potatoes, also a good selection of fresh salad. For afters, squares of delicious fruit sponge cake. Everything was vegan. The food was hot and fresh, and as the restaurant was busy, with a good vibe, it was replenshed quickly with freshly cooked food. Yes, I did go back for seconds and thirds. It cost 15 Euros a head and we paid about 20 Euros for a bottle of wine. Compared to maga expensive Bruges, it was very reasonable, especially being an all you can eat. The chap serving was friendly, cheerful and efficient. Highly recommended.
