    A beautiful late Gothic church in the old town of Roeselare. It was built in 1504 and was the only parochial church of the city until 1872.

Inside, there are several pieces of arts, including the tomb of Johan van Cleef and his wife...

  • Bicycle Museum

    For time reasons, we skipped the bicycle museum. However, it has to be said that it housed in the Paterskerk (Delaerestraat 33) where only a fraction of the original exhibition is shown as the museum building is being rebuilt. It is housed in a beautiful Art Nouveau building which was once built as a Fire Department in 1899. The house was almost...

  • Town Hall (Stadhuis)

    When the belfry of the old town hall collapsed in 1704, it destroyed most of the building itself. This was the result of economic decline after the 80 years war. A smaller town hall was erected with parts of the old one, but this burnt down in 1749. The second half of the 18th century was kinder to Roeselare's citizens and a completely new town...

Arrived at noon while waiting with other guests we got a welcome...

  • Delicious Greek food

    It is my first time in this restaurant, my mother in-law treat for a dinner. I was anxious to see the menu, as international cuisine I was very curious. Many choice in the menu card, there's a list of Greek food. But we choose a menu which includes: apetive, appetizer, main dish and coffee afterwards.

Roeselare Nightlife

  • My favourite bar

    This is my favourite bar of all, on the condition that the owner is there. Owner Dirk knows everything about music and if he's in a good mood he plays fabulous music (rock, pop, ...) the whole night. (If the owner is not there, the young people always want to play alternative music, which is not my taste). Good selection of beers and strong...

  • Irish pub

    I know some people are always looking for an Irish pub if they go somewhere, so this is the one in Roeselare. It's your typical Irish pub, without (or almost without) live music though. It's a nice place to have a drink and a chat, and it's often full (in the weekends, but also in the evenings with people coming from the close-by cinema).

    more
  • Eat & Talk Pub

    The perfect place for when you want to have a chat with your friends in a nice environment and without loud music. Wide choice of drinks, and a limited choice of snacks (cheese, salami, olives, soup, croques, spaghetti, lasagna and one fish dish). The special feature of this place is the old pictures on the walls (I guess a couple of hundreds), and...

  • The best Belgian chocolates

    This 'pralineur' is a cousin of my Mom actually. Their slogan is 'The Best of Belgium', and they might well be right. Their own creations of Belgian chocolates (we call them pralines) are amazing. I've eaten a lot of pralines in my life, but these are definitely the best. They make the perfect gift also, as they not only taste delicious but also...
