Me, my wife and my two daughters (6 and 3). Last night in Bruges. Fancied a quick and easy dinner. This place was just around the corner from our hotel. 2 pizzas and 1 spaghetti with meatballs. Both pizzas were well over cooked. The cheese was dark and hard and the base was tough. The meatballs looked like they'd been... More

After looking round all Brugge for somewhere to eat we settled on this great little restaurant. We had such good food at a great price on Thursday evening that we returned on Friday evening for another meal of great food at a very reasonable price. The only pity was that there were not more taking advantage of the good food... More

Stumbled across this little Italian restaurant just off the Grote Markt in Bruges. It was full of diners so we took a chance and went in. Waitress was friendly, service was very fast and the pizza was delicious!

I hate leaving negative reviews. If a place is bad I'd like to just chalk it up to a bad night but this place was SO bad I couldn't not say anything. Where to start? My wife and I along with some friends spent the weekend in Bruges and on Saturday night decided to eat at La Cantina. We made... More

That was the case we fancied some Italian food and I must admit we actually fancied the restaurant over the road - it seemed vibrant but unfortunately also full. So La Cantina it was. The fist meal we had was quite good, the 'Rosemarino steak' well cooked (well being 'medium rare' actually) but the addition of a lot of rosemary... More

Simply put, not so great. I ordered a Ham and mushroom dish. The "ham" was actually just cheap processed deli meat, and there seemed to only be one mushroom in the entire dish. Not much flavor. The basil was just dried basil that comes out of a shaker that you buy at the store. The menu said bread came with... More

We were walking by when it was just opening and enquired about closing times as a lot of local restaurants close quite early. We came back but, as with another TA reviewer, the Menus advertised and ALL of its contents were finished! Was not impressed and the waiter could not give a toss. I ordered Spaghetti Bolognaise (real Italian restaurants... More

Don't got there when it's around 25°C, because there is no air conditionning and the restaurant was very warm. Rizotto was average....you better take a pizza. Good place to save money
