We tried to get a table in September and it was fully booked the whole time we were there. Luckily we got a table in December and we can see why it is so hard to get a weekend table. Lovely setting, really good food, very friendly accommodating staff. Can't wait until we are back there in March.

A lovely restaurant, traditional flemish menu. But with some twists. Small so book in advance but very nice inside, welcoming, the owner recognised us from last year. Great with our young son. Will return when in Bruges!

Small but really nice and cozy restaurant. Good service, prices and romantic interior. Food was amazing! My friend, who is local, was amazed with traditional flemish stew - one of the best he had tried! As an appetizer we had cheese and shrimp croquettes - VERY good! I completely enjoyed my sole fillets! Make a reservation before you go -... More

We bumped into this lovely restaurant and didn't regret any minute during our delicious dinner. There are two servings every evening, at 6pm & 8pm. It's is recommended to make a reservation, because this place filled up quickly and quite a few people got turned away. The food was delicious and priced accordingly. The cozy setting which seats approximately 15... More

Good restaurants can be hit and miss but the quality control here at Gruuthuse Hof makes this petite fine eatery one of Bruges' little gems. Great food - from the produce to the cooking, a well selected wine list, attentive staff and the perfect location to people watch. Try for a window seat... The 'Tourist Menu' is particularly very good... More

Lovely service, delicious food, yummy beer. Couldn't have asked for better. The starter (goats cheese) was perfect and my steak was delicious (although rare it was not, almost medium well - so I'd order blue if you want rare). Watching people go by out of the window is also a wonderful way to pass the afternoon.

We by chance came across Gruuthuse Hof on our first day in Bruges when searching for a lunch spot. The restaurant is small, classy & beautiful inside. We both ordered the 18ero 3 course meal and it was DELICIOUS! We chose salmon as the main and it was cooked to buttery perfection. I wanted to go back the next day... More

A wonderful atmosphere, welcoming and friendly, and delicious food. Our host made us feel welcome, at ease and friendly, taking the time to talk and joke with us. The meal was excellent and reasonably priced, and service was pleasant throughout. A highly recommended venue for those with a larger budget.

Thank D C
