Sansai: “Great food, service could be better”

Sansai is a beautiful decorated restaurant in the heart of Kortrijk. We ordered a starter and a main course. I had mussels as a starter which were excellent. The kind of course I would gladly travel to Kortrijk for again. My main course was a stew with salmon and noodles. Very good, but a little heavy for me. Quality of the food was very good and the value for money was excellent.

Service could be better though. The staff wasn’t very attentive to our needs. They seemed busy doing other stuff and we felt a bit ignored. Shame.

Dharma Bed & Breakfast: “Lovely host, beautiful house”

Dharma B&B is situated in the center of Kortrijk very close to lots of nice restaurants and shops. Linda is a superb hostess. Very friendly and welcoming, always giving tips to enjoy Kortrijk. Breakfast is excellent. So many lovely cheeses and slices meats to choose from. Every breakfast comes with fruits, yoghurt, nuts and a boiled egg. Lovely. We also enjoyed having breakfast with the other guest and exchanging stories with them.

We stayed in the superioer room, which was beautifully decorated with antiques from an antique shop owned by a friend of Linda. Our room was a little bit dark for our taste and internet didn’t work too well, but we had lots of room and a very clean and spacious bathroom with a shower and a large bath tub.

Since the room has single pane windows, noices from the street can effect your sleep at night. Since the room isn’t insulated very well, I can imagine it will be a bit chilly in winter.
