Our host Anne, ay Sint Nick B&B recommended this small gem restaurant. The design of the dining room is lovely, the dishes are prepared with care and are very flavorfull, the wine list is for the connaissors with a budget (ie sample great St Emilion by the 1/2 bottles) and the service is perfect. The foie d'oie is made to... More

What a real find in the heart of Bruges with a charming cosy restaurant and an excellent hostess who couldn't have been more attentive. The food was as delicious and well presented and this husband and wife team have the perfect recipe for a memorable meal and dining experience. My one and only niggle was that it is not possible...

We noticed this restaurant while walking around the exquisitely beautiful city of Brugge, on our first day, but also had it recommended by the owner of Maison Le Dragon, where we are staying. We got the last table (make sure you book). The decor is funky yet warm, with walls of burgundy. We decided to have the set menu with... More

We had a lovely dinner at couvert, the food was excellent and service was very attentive. We visited with our young child and the owner immediately offered to make something off-menu and delicious for her to eat. The restaurant was full but service was fantastic, courses were well-timed and cooked to perfection. We would definitely recommend and return on our... More

We came across this restaurant by chance and absolutely loved it. We hadn't booked and took the last available table which was fortunate as several people were turned away duriing the evening. It is run by a husband and wife team - he is in the kitchen and she is front of house. Although it is quite small the service... More

It is mindboggling that Restaurant Couvert isn't in the top 5 at least. What a wonderful experience! The room is lovely and comfortable. Service was meticulous; one woman managed the dining room (the owner or manager?), and she was charming but left us alone to enjoy our meal. The food was delicious, cooked perfectly, and the flavors enhanced each dish... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Couvert, selected for us by our hotel. We could not have been more pleased. The food is wonderful -- so tasty and flavorful in a comfortable but interesting way. We were treated so well with friendly service. In all ways this was such a comfortable restaurant with excellent food. You should not miss this... More

Perplexes me why this is so far down on the list. From the moment we sat down my husband and I were blown away by this small cozy restaurant. From the little plate of olives, snails, and fresh radishes that greeted us to the soft baked bread we knew we were in for a treat. We were surprised with an... More

Don't be scared by the Flemish/French menu...the owner will happily explain every dish and you will have one the best meals of your vacation at a very affordable price. The decor is charming and intimate and the food is fresh and carefully prepared. Enjoy!
