My wife and I ate here in February 2012 after finding the restaurant on Michelin's Guide to affordable restaurants. While I wouldn't define the restaurant as affordable I certainly am glad we ate here. We had the date of our reservation mistaken and showed up the next night but this was not a problem and the restaurant accomodated us just... More

Sadly not the weather for enjoying the alluring garden terrace overlooking the canal, but our table in the cosy basement with a woodfire glowing in its midst was about a metre from the water! The restaurant, as Bruges itself, was very quiet. Our charming, law-student waitress brought a dish of tiny brown shrimps with a chervil dressing and a basket... More

This is tucked away on the side of a canal less than two minutes from all the main attractions. It is a great find in a city full of restaurants. The set lunch at just 23 Euros is the best bargain in a classy restaurant that I've found in Belgium. The poached egg and truffles first course was simple but... More

They were booked for the evening however had a table for the saturday available so we reserved it. Checking on Tripadvisor back at the hotel it did not have a high rating but decided to stick with it and... More

This is a review of the restaurant only, but I can't find another reference on this site.A rather disastrous evening, anyway, for this easy-to-please vegetarian at the Die Swaene restaurant (someone told my wife it was a “romantic” place to go …) where the menu out front states that the chef will “create something for vegetarian guests.” Humbug, he “created”...

Restaurant Pergola is a well hidden gem situated along a picturesque stretch of canal. We are specialized in regional cuisine where fish lovers as well as meat lovers find their liking. On sunny days we serve on our terrace overlooking the canal, on typical 'Belgian weather days' we welcome you in our romantic cellar on water level. We can organize to take your aperitif on the boat while touring the city and moor at the venue for an exquisite dinner.
