Visited this place a couple of times for after dinner drinks and sat outside overlooking the canal which had great views. There were blankets and furry seat coverings provided if you felt cold, they even provided nibbles to go with your drinks which was a nice touch. The background music was good which added to the ambiance. The girls that... More

We visited Pergola for a drink on a lovely sunny afternoon, we had a nice table by the canal and enjoyed nice drinks, very good service and fine music. A very nice place to visit also in the evening, if the weather allows it has a beautiful terrace.

We stumbled across Pergola whilst out walking last night. Stopped off for a drink and decided to stay for tapas. Gorgeous food! Location lovely too if you can get a table over looking the canal. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly. Would definitely go back and recommend.

We had just arrived in Brugge and saw this place that sits next to the water we went and the very helpful waiter helped us to a table just be the water. The poor guy was a bit overworked as he was the only one to help all guests. We started with a beer and decided to stay for dinner.... More

When we saw the terrace of Pergola from across the street we thought; WOW. What a stunning location. On the water and sheltered by trees! Let's see if they have space available. When we sat down, it took the (new) waitress about 30 minutes to notice us. Notice, not help us. While the terrace was only holding 12 tables, she... More

We visited Pergola on a recent visit to Bruges. After reading the reviews I was really hoping to sit by the canal. Unfortunately it was raining the night we were there so we had a table inside, which turned out to be a blessing. What a beautiful, cosy room, just lovely in the rain. We had a delicious meal, we...

We were a group of 8 on a beautiful day and ate outdoors overlooking a canal. What a delight. Soup of the day was delicious as was a shrimp croquette with salad. Service was delightful. We had a terrific time.

Restaurant Pergola is a well hidden gem situated along a picturesque stretch of canal. We are specialized in regional cuisine where fish lovers as well as meat lovers find their liking. On sunny days we serve on our terrace overlooking the canal, on typical 'Belgian weather days' we welcome you in our romantic cellar on water level. We can organize to take your aperitif on the boat while touring the city and moor at the venue for an exquisite dinner.
