We had spent an hour or so walking around a slightly chilly and overcast Bruges, looking for somewhere with a menu that had light fish dishes as my girlfriend was just getting over a dodgy tummy. We wanted something better than just one of the tourist cafes but nothing too fancy. With good fortune we stumbled across Au Petit Grand. We were through the door literally seconds after it opened and were met with warmth, kindness and great charm. The restaurant interior is lovely and the food to match.


My girlfriend had the Sole, simply but perfectly cooked, with a nice salad. I had the King Prawns with tomato and garlic, with frites, which was absolutely delicious. The prawns were huge, the biggest I'd ever seen. We regretted we couldn't take the shells back with us to make one of Rick Stein's 

prawn stocks!


For dessert I had the Profiteroles, filled with ice-cream and covered with a lovely chocolate sauce.


Highly recommend Au Petit Grand. Nothing pretentious, just really good ingredients, cooked with great care and understanding, and lovely friendly service.

We were made to feel extremely welcome by Line and Tom when we visited this week.
The restaurant is quite small but very elegant and we had a lovely window table and watched the horse and carriages passing by.
We ordered the Choice menu at €51 and chose Carpaccio of Beef followed by the Chateaubriand and then the largest ice-cream ever!!!
Both were absolutely outstanding and the Chateaubriand was cooked to perfection.
Line was the perfect hostess with a wonderful sense of humour and made our evening very special.
Thank you both and we will definitely come back when we visit Bruges again.

This was a wonderful restaurant. Food was outstanding and the service was top-notch. We had a wonderful appetizer along with the house steak. The wine was excellent and beer was cold; the dessert was great. Highly recommend this restaurant. Price was as expected.

Saw this restaurant on trip advisor fantastic restaurant excellent service not cheap but value for money. You get what you pay for. I had chateaubriand kebab with side salad pepper sauce and dauphinois potatoes followed by crepes Suzette. Main course was 30 euros well worth it highly recommended

We dined at Au Petit Grand 3 years ago and had a nice meal, so it was the obvious choice for dinner during our recent visit to Bruges. Easily booked the table in advance via the restaurant website. On this occasion, we had the 'Two Pax' set menu, which included the most generous portions of chateaubriand we've had. We were unable to face dessert, but the staff were kind enough to substitute a couple of digestifs instead. I think we were still going after closing time, but no one seemed to mind. All in all, another nice evening and another good meal. We'll happily return for a third visit next time we're in Bruges.
