I've never seen such terrible service from a restaurant, especially in a place that seems to be so tourist focused. We were turned away as soon as we spoke english. What a shame that this venue does nothing to promote the kind folk of Bruges.

For this brasserie you need to make a reservation cause this restaurant is always very busy.There's no cheaper place than here to eat fresh food prepared with love.A small spaghetti bolognese&cheese, cost 4,50 Euro and a large one cost 5,50 Euro and these are just a few examples what they have on their menu.

My husband had been here with collegues and was really enthusiastic about the place. So last night we went together. We are locals, so no problem to get a table. Although we did see tourists come to book a table for the next day. That was not possible. When taking up our order the owner told us he had to... More

Despite the very poor reviews about both the Manager (the gatekeeper!) and the Brasserie in general, my wife and I thought we'd give it a go anyway...you never know, we might get lucky! We didn't! Arrived just after lunch to book a table for the evening and was abruptly told by the manager that they were closed, despite some of... More

Having spent the last few days eating out at more expensive restaurants and full of delicious Belgium beer we fancied a cheaper meal and after a little bit of research came up with brassiere medard! Joking to ourselves after reading reviews about the differences in review and how appalling at times the service is we arrived to find the restaurant... More

As many other tourists, I have heard about this restaurant before my visit. It is not so easy to find cheap good food in Belgium, but this place is just a haven for a traveller with a modest budget! The restaurant is super easy to find, because it is a few steps from the main square; the owners/waiters are very... More

In 2008 & 2010 we came to this restaurant and had wonderful spaghetti bolognaise. Very cheap & cheerful, and a food highlight. So we were excited to return to Bruges and visit again. Unfortunately we tried to go 3 x and each time we were turned away because they were "fully booked" or "kitchen had closed". We are talking at... More

This is a family run business which is friendly and welcoming. A very reasonably priced menu. We had coffee with 2 large pancakes for €3:50 and a coffee with warm apple cake served with cream and ice cream for €4:50. You can avoid having to pay excessive prices here compared to the main square.

We read the comments on trip advisor and we were not sure if we were going to be lucky to taste the food from this place. As the last review said, we just arrived and sat on a table that did not have reserved sign and waited. We did not ask anything we just sat down. You have to be... More

When I saw the revues of this place I thought 2 things: I want a giant plate of cheap and delicious spaghetti and now it was a challenge to get past the "gatekeeper"! So, we had a gameplan - we learned to say 2 in Flemish for our party size so we could go in confidently and be that much... More
