Stopped here right after getting into town. Wonderful staff. Small menu, but good food. The wrap with chicken was delicious. Good selection of beer.

After doing a lot of research, reading the glowing reviews, I was really excited to eat at this restaurant, serving authentic food, located on the road less traveled by...and when I entered (at about say 6pm or so) the place was deserted and the bartender informed me for dinner they only served appetizers or spaghettis, light things for dinner on...

A local barman recommended this bistro to us (must be good if the locals are recommending it!) and off we went not really knowing what to expect. How very pleasantly surprised we were to find this charming, warm and accommodating bistro. Our food was excellent - the lasagne was heavenly and a portion fit for a king! My husband raved... More

We thought we'd be super-smart and print out a list of places where we'd like to eat while visiting Brugge/Bruges. It might have been a good idea to check the dates of the reviews because several places were either closed or didn't even exist anymore when we turned up on their doorstep :-( However, not ones to give up easily,...

This restaurant is in the northern part of town and away from the tourist areas. It is in a quit but atmospheric neighborhood. The restaurant serves Flemish specialties that are very well prepared. The daily specials are a very good value. The restaurant is quiet and very pleasant environment for a leisurely dinner. The service is good and the restaurant... More

I was in Bruges this Wednesday. After a walk in the city centre, I look for a restaurant to have lunch. This place is a bit separated from the city Grande Place, but it's worth the distance (that isn't too much by the way) of you are looking for some local food, in the middle price range ( not luxury,...

We were excited to go to this restaurant based on a local recommendation. The food was tasty and well prepared. However, they could not handle our group of 8 well. It seemed that only two people were working that night. There was no crowd and the restaurant was not even half full. I will spare you the details since I... More

Loved this little stylish restaurant! Small menu but really good food! very reasonable and the best chocolate mousse ever (more like a truffle). Good service which included tap water! Some nice outdoor seating by church in quiet square.

Out of the way and super quaint next to a church. The food is just ok. I ordered steak frites medium (bright pink) and it was VERY medium well (arrived with some pink and fading fast). The soup was unexpected and delicious: a cream of vegetable. Dessert was a lovely almond cake. The reason I know that they are good... More

Description
This is an excellent lunch stop. Used by locals and great value for money. Unusually for Bruges when you ask for water they offer you tap water!!!! and don't look pained as though you had asked for something illicit. Remember when you got those same looks in the UK??
Definitely a little place to remember.
