We did the 18 Euro set menu which included 3 courses and it was all delicious. We had soup, half chicken and profiteroles. I found Bruges... More

Try the Flemish Stew, the stew was perfect, the beef was very tender and really tasty. Best meal I had on this visit to Bruges. Nice and friendly service also. Would recommend.

Very nice, romantic interior and the staff were most efficient and friendly. And the food was fantastic! We had grilled tuna, delicious. If you visit Bruges-eat... More

We visit the Gruuthuse Hof every time we visit Bruges. It's a fantastic restaurant and we have never been disappointed. We visited on a Sunday afternoon, arriving early for lunch. We always like to sit outside on the terrace to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city and the horse carriages going by. The tourist set menu is excellent... More
