We headed for this 3 starred (Michelin) restaurant with high anticipation. We were not disappointed. Exquisit food. The matching wine deal was so so not bad but not really adventurous, nor of high standard. Also the waiters had problems to talk about prices when explaining the deal, assuming everything was known beforehand. THis left an ackward feeling at the start... More

Was it due to the coupon from Groupon, who knows but my experience wasn't great. Spend a lot of money on drinks, not worth it. Have been better in 1 and 2 stars.

What a lucky woman I am to have experienced a top notch extended business lunch here. Excellence in every single element. The most unexpected balanced combinations served with great design and detail. Perfect service, discrete and extremely professional. Nothing more to add than incredibly fantastic.

I' ve been in "Hertog Jan" in 23d of December 2016. The place is outside Brugge and you can visit it by taxi (from city center they said 30-35 euros one way!!) or by bus! Personally i believe that bus is the best option because it is way cheaper and easy as well. You have to find "Brugge 'T Zand... More

My birthday couldn't be nicer with a dinner at this wonderful place. Food is more than an experience for all senses. Service is perfect and soooo quiet! Although the restaurant is always fully booked there was no surrounding noise. That's real Belgian savoir vivre! Americans should learn from this!
