Candle lit stone stairs, colour changing stained glass windows, jazz greats on the walls and multi level seating all combine to create a stylish eclectic dining experience. Friendly down to earth staff, great food and a warm busy atmosphere are other reasons that this was our second visit and why we'll go again next time we're in Bruges. Try the duck and finish with creme brûlée - delicious!

We wandered in here after getting into Brugge late at night and hoped for the best. Fortunately we found it here! As someone who ALWAYS tries the steak tartare when it's on the menu, I was delighted to see the preparation at 't Zwart Huis - the condiments were all portioned out so you can mix up your bites as you go and find the balance that best suits your beer. The service was also outstanding and the atmosphere and location are stellar. Just writing this review makes me miss Brugge...

I found the address here on Trip Advisor. Honestly I bookmarked this place because it has a running kitchen from noon til night, which is convenient if you're visiting Bruges and not sure what time you will eat or find yourself near the Markt.
It is located just behind the city theater building. When we arrived (we didn't book a table) around noon it was empty and when we left there were about 5-6 tables. It seems like it is more crowded in the evening. The three of us had three different meals and they were all good. I'd say it is a "brasserie" type of menu, with not too many typical Belgian dishes, although you will find something to your taste. No problem whatsoever; the prices are fair for the quality of the food experience; the waiters are helpful.
A lot of restaurants close after 14h30 so the running kitchen is definitely a plus! I will come back!

We found this place by accident but noticed quickly that it was filled with locals and the restaurant was packed. We weren't disappointed...the service was excellent, the waiters were very friendly, the food was very good, the setting is charming and the prices are fair.
A great selection of beer and a great variety of items on the menu.
We went back there the following night and it was as good as the first night.
Great spot in Bruges!

Visited Bruges for a long weekend and we came across this wonderful restaurant. It was busy and we hadn't booked but we were offered us a seat at the bar. What followed was delicious steak, chips and red wine served by friendly, attentive staff in a vibrant atmosphere. The owner was also a lovely man, incredibly friendly and we instantly took to him.
The following night we were looking for somewhere new to eat but decided to go back, having enjoyed ourselves so much the night before. Walking through the door we were met by the owner who welcomed us like old friends. Again the food, wine, atmosphere and staff were superb.
A memorable experience that we still talk about... hence why we're writing this review 6months later! Highly recommended. Just be sure to book and appreciate that during high season you may have to wait... so kick back and enjoy the atmosphere.

Thank Jamie W
