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!

The venue is magnificent. Space and light, are key in this restored old farm. There’s a big terrace that surrounds the restaurant overlooking Hertog Jan’s VIP vegetable garden. The atmosphere is serene, relaxed and without bling bling. Which I honestly had not expected. Hertog Jan has a young but dynamic & generous team (15 people in the kitchen and 12... More

Invited by a friend, I was thrilled to be back at Hertog Jan. I had been at HJ several times, since they had obtained their first star. The place has become an example of Operational Excellence, the service is completely silent but reminded me of a school refectory. One has to eat what HJ tells you to eat. The content... More

As foodie there is no reason to miss a chance to dine at a three star Michelin restaurant when visiting a new city. So we booked at Hertog Jan. The restaurant is located outside Brugge so you either have to go by car (and miss the wines) or by taxi - we chose the taxi :-) The place has a... More

This beautiful restaurant, which at first glance looks like a modern farm, is hidden away in the Belgian countryside, about 20 minutes away from Bruges city centre. We arrived just before sunset, and walked around their garden whilst sipping on delicious floral iced tea. Seeing where they grow their produce definitely does something for your appetite. The staff are so... More

This is an extraordinary restaurant and you will not be disappointed by the food. The vegetable and spice garden is probably at the foundation of the success of this hotel. Every course was accompanied by pure and fresh vegetables like you have not eaten them before. Our surprise menu had 5 appetizers each one unique in taste and composition. Our... More
