    De Roste Muis

    We rented a gite near Maldegem and asked our landlady to recommend a restaurant for my birthday. She suggested De Roste Muis and gave us careful directions and GPS coordinates. This was most fortunate because it is in the middle of nowhere near the Belgian border with the Netherlands. At one point we were driving along a canal and thought we had gotten on a bicycle path by mistake. Fortunately we came to another car so decided we were okay and continued. As it turned out, the other car was headed for the same restaurant. I'm sure everyone anywhere near was headed for the same restaurant because there was noplace else to go . . . but it is definitely worth the adventure.

    There is parking under trees just past the restaurant which is part of a small farm. We entered on a cold blustery day in September and were warmly greeted. It looks small from the road but is actually very large and getting to our table took us through most of the different rooms. It's a labyrinth but a very picturesque one.

    We were seated in a back room with several Belgian families out for their Sunday dinner. Our table overlooked the back yard that included a lake, hen house with resident cat, apple trees in full fruit and small farm animals. The inside was Belgian colonial or farm décor, very warm and inviting. We just loved it.

    We hadn't gotten reservations and it was crowded so we were lucky. I would advise calling for reservations. They speak excellent English. You can go to their web site and reserve online.

    Favorite Dish: Here's my Journal entry for the meal.

    "We started with a kir royale for my birthday and then ordered from the extensive menu. Ed got an entrecote of beef with mushroom sauce and I got a very tender lamb served as medallions in a tarragon cream sauce. Our plates had something resembling sprouted alfalfa, endive and tomatoes. We ordered extra vegetables and they arrived as a salad that we shared. There was also a generous plate of crisp frites. We washed all this down with a nice red wine and it was a great birthday dinner."

    There were several large families sharing the room with us, including many children from about 8 or 9 months to late teens. All behaved beautifully and seemed to appreciate the excellent meal and conversation with their parents, siblings and relatives. It was an overall wonderful experience enhanced by excellent food.

    Estaminet Soetkin: Home made soup

    by Martinewezel Updated Jun 3, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Damme

    As we planned a bike trip to Bruges,
    we didn't want to spend too much time in a restaurant.
    Something warm, a light meal for lunch was enough.

    This no-nonsense restaurant offers dishes such as steaks, porc, lamb, fish with vegetables, fries... simple meals at reasonable prices.

    Also for lunch there are snacks, salads, spaghetti...

    Favorite Dish: We had a bowl of fresh home made soup with 2 big slices of bread and butter for 3 euros/ person.
    Not a culinary "tour de force", but very tasty, and just what we needed.

    A nice place to warm up your bones, in february 2008, a cold day in Damme. My second visit to this village of books.
    Tea is served on a traditional japanese way. You can have a lot of warm drinks, hot chocomilk with a little rum. But also some snacks are served, this all at reasonable prices.
    The servants are very friendly.
    Remarkable is the waterpump located outside the building, so called "little sow"
    It is the oldest waterpump in the area. In 1269 Damme got the rights from the local earl to pump up water from his castle lake

    Open : 10am-19pm : closed on friday

    Plenty of restaurants!

    by myriam_c Written Sep 21, 2003

    Don't worry, you won't starve in Damme!
    There are plenty of restaurants in the few streets, in every price category.
    De Damsche Poort has a very good reputation. We were there in the afternoon, so the place was closed.
    I peeked inside though, and it looked very charming.
    Their menu looked good as well, and was not as expensive as I thought it would be.

    Damme

    Damme is not only known for its books but is also the place to go when you want to have a nice meal. You will notice when you stroll along Damme that you will see a lot of restaurants. You have the feeling that Damme only exists of bookshops and restaurants.
    I'm sure that all restaurants are good. Have a look at the interior and the menu and pick a restaurant according to what you like to eat.

    Favorite Dish: Pancakes!!
