I couldn't recommend this restaurant more, from the service to the food, everything was excellent! All 4 of us chose the Flemish beef stew and definitely weren't disappointed, it was very tasty and the portion sizes were huge so you definitely won't leave feeling hungry. We wish we were staying in Bruges longer so we could go again!

Found this place on a stroll on our first afternoon in Bruges. Wanted a drink and a snack and we had the most fabulous cheese and shrimp croquettes- we ordered both and shared! Washed down with local beer (him) and their lovely unoaked house Chardonnay (me) it was a delicious find. The staff were lovely and I hope to find... More

Stumbled upon Bistro De Schilder on our way out to dinner and was not disappointed. The food we had was lovely - the service was great, very attentive, and although we found Bruges quite expensive generally, this was not too pricey in comparison to everywhere else. Turns out when I came to book somewhere for the second night that it... More

Flemish stew was absolutely fantastic! The service was also top quality, super friendly and welcoming staff. They gave us a small free appetiser while we waited for our meal. Even the appetiser was exquisite..! Super cozy and warm restaurant, which I can highly recommend!

We had both lunch an dinner here one day. We popped in for a cup of tea after a walk to see the windmills in the north of Bruges. We all opted for hot chocolate and one of us decided to have some food - this was the scampi (prawns) and salad. The owner has a dry sense of humour... More

This place was close to our hotel and as it was cold we didn't want to walk far. We reserved a table for later that same evening, as it gets busy at the weekends. The Flemish Stew is particularly nice with chips and salad, and the goats cheese salad is very tasty too. Traditional good quality food at reasonable prices.

On a recent trip to the Christmas markets in Bruges we ate at the Bistro De schilder. We had just arrived in the town and checked into our hotel after a long day of travelling, so we ate very early - before 5pm. The service was fantastic, beers were recommended, and the food was served quickly. We had mussels and... More

We had been turned away from the restaurant we had booked due to arriving 20 minutes later than planned (entirely our fault as one of our party lingered to photograph the picturesque canal views) and were not optimistic to find an alternative as we were a party of six. De Schilder was pretty full but looked inviting and we were... More
