After a wet afternoon in Bruges we took a chance on an evening meal at this delightful husband and wife run restaurant close to our hotel . We weren't disappointed! The fish soup was perfect - as was the goose liver. The main courses of sole and perfectly cooked fillet steak were also delicious. This wasn't a cheap evening -... More

My sister and I asked Anne, our hostess at B & B Sint Nick, for her favorite restaurant and this recommendation led us to one of the best meals we had during our time in Belgium. The host/owner is welcoming, decor soothing, and food delicious!

Nice little restaurant with a friendly hostess and fine food. We had the menu with the wine pairing. All was very good, especially the quail, which was succulent and flavorful. We asked how it was prepared. Just roasted, we were told. Simple. Good attention to detail. For example, the radishes that were presented at the beginning of the meal with... More

This was really lovely place, from the overall atmosphere to the really high quality meal. When we entered, the host was sitting on the stairs playing with her young child, which made it feel if you were being invited into someone's front room. The starter of parma ham, rocket and parmesan was good but the main course of sweetbreads was... More

The foie d'oie is made to... More

What a real find in the heart of Bruges with a charming cosy restaurant and an excellent hostess who couldn't have been more attentive. The food was as delicious and well presented and this husband and wife team have the perfect recipe for a memorable meal and dining experience. My one and only niggle was that it is not possible...

We noticed this restaurant while walking around the exquisitely beautiful city of Brugge, on our first day, but also had it recommended by the owner of Maison Le Dragon, where we are staying. We got the last table (make sure you book). The decor is funky yet warm, with walls of burgundy. We decided to have the set menu with... More

We had a lovely dinner at couvert, the food was excellent and service was very attentive. We visited with our young child and the owner immediately offered to make something off-menu and delicious for her to eat. The restaurant was full but service was fantastic, courses were well-timed and cooked to perfection. We would definitely recommend and return on our... More

We came across this restaurant by chance and absolutely loved it. We hadn't booked and took the last available table which was fortunate as several people were turned away duriing the evening. It is run by a husband and wife team - he is in the kitchen and she is front of house. Although it is quite small the service... More
