We have been coming to DeBocarme since the restaurant opened. I just can't speak highly enough of the wonderful welcome we always get, the fabulous food and the terrific service. We came over to Brugge to celebrate Valentine's Day. We chose DeBocarme for our special night. It was truly the best meal I think we have ever had. The menu... More

Went for a valentine's diner with my girlfriend. The special menu for this occasion was really good especially the carpaccio of Belgian beef. All courses accompanied by lots of fine wine. Really personal and friendly service. We had a really nice talk with the owner/host in which he outlined the passion for his restaurant. This all for a really good... More

The setting has a lot going for it. A large space with elegant tables set out to welcome intimate couples and groups for an evening of gastronomic delights. We were welcomed by friendly hosts and chit chat. The wine recommendations were excellent. However the food and general atmosphere was, I'm sorry to say disappointing. The piped in music, similar to... More

Dear Sir, We are sorry that we could not live up to your standarts, if you order Carpaccio of queen scallops you should know that you get fresh scallops very fine slice and not cooked. Again our apologies. Kind regards Nadine and Patrick More

Myself and my boyfriend ate here last Saturday night and had a fabulous time. Upon being greeted by Patrick, we had a lovely romantic table at the back of the restaurant and enjoyed every moment of it. The food, cooked by his wife Nadine, was exquisite and the best we have eaten in a long time. The wine was amazing... More

My wife and I and another couple booked dinner on Friday 25th November and we're glad we did. From the second we entered until will left everything was perfect. It's all too easy these days to have 'average' service and 'excellent' food, or vice-versa, however, at de Bocarme we knew our evening was going to be good at the greet... More

We ordered carpaccio of beef for starters and sole fish for main dish, both à la carte Both dishes were very nice, brought as they should be. As desert I had a Swan of ice with... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Brugge. The food was delicious (I had the goat cheese salad, Irish beef, and Swan dessert). The atmosphere was unique as it is downstairs in an old wine cellar. The service 10/10. Great dinner!

We ate here for Christmas Eve dinner. Portions were decent sized and delicious. The setting was very mellow and nice. It was a tad tricky to find as it is in the basement and on Christmas Eve there is not a lot of things open to ask for directions. We almost missed our reservation.
