A little off the downtown center lies lthis nice restaurant. Not on the everyday tourist route but within walking distance to most hotels. Excellent food and service. An explosion of favors in every dish. All cooked carefully to perfection with fine ingredients. A restaurant out of the ordinary in a town with plenty of options. Wine list extensive but expensive.... More

Our last visit to this restaurant made us want to check out other listings on the menu, and again to our full satisfaction. Excellent food! But we were all by ourselves in the restaurant, enjoying individual service, but still feeling a bit funny. Strange, really, considering the service and the food. Can't understand why other raters consider it an overpriced... More

We had asparagus with smoked salmon as first course and cod as main. Especially the latter was top class, perfectly cooked and the portion overall not overdone. The wine list the best we have come across in Bruges. Not a heap eatery but definitely worth it.

A little away from the heart of Bruges, you'll find the restaurant. Great food, great service. There is even a special elevator for wheelchair users to go to the toilet. The personnel is very helpful to operate the elevator. I definetly would come back here again.

We got this restaurant recommended from our hotel as being located away from the tourist trap, which it proved to be, to our satisfaction. The restaurant was almost empty when wee got there, most likely because we were early, as it filled up as our meal progressed, proving that the place may be a bit understaffed - the staff was...

As part of a package our hotel made reservations for us at De Florentijnen. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and were pleasantly surprised y the quality of the meal and attentive staff. Not sure how pricy the menu was as our meal was preplanned and prepaid, but regardless, the food and presentation was exquisite.

An excellent place to eat. Fantastic food but at a price, but the old saying is you only get what you pay for runs true most of the time. The place was quiet for a Saturday night with two other couples at 7.30pm but at 8.30pm a larger group arrived. Why do not more people eat here, it can only... More

We were aiming for something a little more upmarket than the local bistro but failed to book the retairants we wanted to go to in advance. We booked this on the day, so were pleased to get in but when we arrived the restaurant was almost empty. Its a pity as the food is good, and there is plenty of... More

Nice location, food was average, wine less than that, desserts were great. Altogether a sterile atmosphere and not cheap.
