Very quaint and atmospheric restaurant. Staff and service just superb. You order a beer and they treat it like a wine for you. The wine list was impressive, but alas I cannot afford a Petrus. There were more affordable options. The food itself was delicious....More

It is in a quiet backstreet and requires concentration to find on foot which may account for the lack of the tour crowds and which in itself is a huge blessing. The exterior is brick, red painted-windows and floral baskets and pots; a great presentation.Inside...More

Last here in 2015 and it hasn't lost anything in terms of service, atmosphere and food quality. Had the Black-pudding which isn't everyone's choice but OMG it was Devine, came with caramelised apples and potatoes - a real gastronomic treaty. Will hopefully be back here...More

Great quiet(ish) location off the main Street . Traditional Flemish restaurant having been there for over 40yrs. Great staff and service with a smile. Portions are very generous and the Rabbit stew was delicious.

Food was very good, though expensive. The wait staff, however, were rude, snotty, and arrogant, at one point laughing at our party after asking if we were American. I CANNOT SAY THIS STRONGLY ENOUGH: DO. NOT. WASTE. YOUR. MONEY. HERE.

De Vlaamsche Pot was on my list to visit during the Bruge tour and it was a bull's eye! Situated in a small street with lovely terace on the street and a great garden terace, it just calls out to be visited. We stopped here...More

A great restaurant for typically Flemish cuisine. Service was good and the food was lovely. Like all Bruges restaurants it is not cheap but good value generally.

What a lovely place! If you are looking to sample traditional Belgian cuisine, this is the place to go in Bruges. We had the waterzooi and rabbit stew and both were fenomenal. Portions are generous so either schare dishes or go for mains only. I...More
