We came here on our first night in Bruges after seeing the positive trip advisor reviews and reasonable prices. Even on a Monday night they only managed to squeeze us in on their last table of two so definitely reserve in advance. The service was efficient and friendly. I had the Flemish stew which was delicious and my girlfriend had... More

Make a reservation for lunch. Very small building but cozy seating. Had a wonderful lunch. The service was extraordinary. We had 6 in our party and everyone loved their entrees. The three desserts we split were wonderful (the waffle, the chocolate covered puffs and ice cream). We were not rushed and spent a lovely leisurely lunch with dear friends.

This place looks cute from the outside, but what a surprise on the inside. More upmarket than the tacky tourist haunts around the main square. Felt like a special evening meal. We luckily went early and got the last table. If you want to eat here - book. Many people turned away. It's only small inside. The food was lovely.... More

We walked past this restaurant the previous day and it looked great, however it was full at the time so we went back the next day to try lunch. It's actually quite a small restaurant with around 10 tables or so inside and some outside. The restaurant is dog friendly took, so we had our little dog with us inside... More

Ate here on Sunday 23rd with friends. I had Scampi in garlic butter to start (the scampi was super fresh tasting). Then I followed it up with Flemish stew (which was absolutely delicious). My friend had foie gras and I had to help out 😀 as it was a portion and a half. Really good, well cooked food in very... More

The atmosphere and service at this restaurant is excellent, the team are attentive and yet very relaxed. The food is superb and we spent a very pleasant evening there, I'm so happy we booked a table before we went as this is a restaurant well worth a visit in this wonderful city.

My wife and I agree, that this was our most memorable meal in Bruges. As an earlier review noted, the 3 course meal is excellent both in terms of quality and value. So if you go here, first make reservations (note: they are closed on Wed. and Thu.) and then secondly, if you like what is being offered on the... More

I have been visiting the Gruuthouse Hof for over 20 years. It is the sort of Restaurant that oozes warmth and charm, the food is just wonderful with a good selection of dishes including local specialties such as Flemish Stew and Mussels. Food is homemade wherever possible. It has a welcoming atmosphere whereby in the Winter you can sit in... More
