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!

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
