A good selection on the menu (ours was in English). Good choices are the shrimp, the mussels and the lasagna as well as the beef stew. A comfortable place with good service and free wifi.

This is a nice little backstreet find, away from the main tourist trap and the bustling crowds. Great selection of beers and friendly, relaxed service. We would definitely go back.

A birthday meal with excellent beer and food - gr8 atmosphere sphere and very good service - had the fillet mignon and mushroom sauce with shrimp croquettes to start. Directly opposite the casselburg hotel which is equally excellent

Just off the Burg, we this lovely wooden clad restaurant on Sunday evening. Going traditional, we selected Flemish beef stew and vol au vent. Food was excellent, portions generous, service friendly - all in all, very enjoyable.

Description
Restaurant Diligence is an authentic and cozy restaurant in Bruges, located in the heart of the city center, only 200 meters from the Burg and Market square. Restaurant Diligence represents an honest French-Belgian bistro cuisine. We use quality local products that we turn in tasteful and traditional meals. Except for Wednesday our kitchen is open every day from noon until 2pm for lunch and from 6pm till midnight for diner. So even after the movies or theater, you can visit us for a nice steak or a delicious Flemish stew.
