Please find below a wrap-up of our food and inter-personal experience: 1) We ordered a Trimbach Riesling Reserve 2009, as well as bottle of water, for which we almost waited half an hour. Moreover, during this time period, the restaurant was only half full and we did not receive anything at all during this time. 2) On the food front,... More

We were a rather large group, but could order from the menu which included filet préparé and meatballs and mashed potatoes. Modern setting, open kitchen and helpful staff. And we had sufficient space to enjoy the food & company.

We walked in off the street, and were delighted to be welcomed in. The place and the food were terrific. Generally the service was top notch. My partner felt one of our servers was taking the Micky out of him, a youngish chap, but we gave him the benefit of doubt. Overall a great spot.

Looked to be a lovely setting across from our hotel, lovely menu, and the Brugges meat balls with cheese were divine. Everything started out fine but somewhat hurried. Ordered lovely wine, noticed some tables had complimentary crudities and bread brought out, later, we received our bag of bread and a spot of butter. Still not really a problem. next course... More

We were already a bit warned through the question dinner at 6.30 or 9.00. The restaurant seves two shifts. You do notice the speed of service they underline by personnel really running around to make sure taht they can start the second shift on time and with an empty place again. Food was great, but the constant running makes you... More

A glorious find; exquisite little place off Langestraat that we would have passed by...however another restaurant (closing for summer holidays) highly recommended them. We had a lovely evening. The Restaurant had a nice, small space and an equally sized courtyard garden space. We discovered that it shares some garden-space with De Karmeliet (a 3 *** restaurant on Langestraat). Wonderful food,... More

Wat was supposed to add a lot of flavour on my lovely trip to Brugge ; left me very bitter! Average food! Horrible service; Melissa the owner is downright abusive and rude! Refusing to listen to us; she insisted on charging is for food returned as it was unpalatable. Threatened to call the cops on us and called us liars!... More

I wasn't sure what to expect as I booked this restaurant at the last minute based on our B&B's recommendation but I'm glad I did. The restaurant is beautifully furnished, the wait staff were very attentive, friendly and accommodating of our children (but I wouldn't necessarily say this is somewhere to bring children and it's quite a refined atmosphere) -...

This was recommended to me by a friend who had been a while ago. My daughter and I had two nights in Bruges and booked it with great anticipation on the back of the recommendation.Big mistake. Atmosphere terrible..admittedly fairly empty as not many tourists around at the moment. Service unfriendly and unattentive. Food terrible...everything felt either re-heated or thawed. I... More
