Unlike you, Jeremy, I like De Dyver, and would heartily recommend it.

The food is very good and if on a set menu, the price is very good in relation to the quality of the food. I know that you don't like the fact that they choose the beer that they serve with each course and that one does not get a full bottle, but it means that one has some capacity for more beer in conventional Speciality Beer bars after.

This concept of an all in pricefor a meal with drinks has been copied from non-beer places such as the outstanding, Michelin-starred Den Gouden Harynck, Groeninge 25, tel 050 33 76 37, in Bruges. Here they have menus with wine included which are very good, but ones that you perhaps would not choose if you seleced from the wine list. This makes eating here manageable on the pocket. I have had one of my bbest ever meals here, better than a three star (the max is three) place in Reims and a two star one near where I live in the UK.

Den Dyver is trying to emulate such places but with a beer slant, such as doing the folding napkin stuff that you don't like.

Den Dyver is in a different league altogether to the more famous beer cuisine place in Watou, which I found very moderate on a visit this year.

Having said all this, Erasmus is also a good choice in Bruges.
