We found this place by chance near our hotel. It's about 5 minutes walk from the main square. It's run by Ian and Patricia, a very friendly lovely couple. Glass of beer and a white wine was just over €5 which is brilliant in bruges. The bar is very clean and comfortable. Ian and Patricia's recommendations for places to see... More

We were looking for somewhere for a light lunch: most places around you seem to have to book, but there was a spare table here and we liked the look of it. And it was a good choice for a freshly cooked omelette with fresh salad and bread. Served with a great Belgian beer. Excellent, set us up for an... More

The space is quite, warm and cool. The people working were super nice! The recommendations were very good - Delirium Beer was the most! I really appreciate it! Thank you!

This was quite a find, right near the hotel. Wonderful place. Cosy and homely. Warm in the winter. A great selection of beers on tap. Wonderful tapas options for light bites over a drink. The owners are wonderful people. Very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers they sell and the city that they live in. Definitely worth a visit.

Firstly, if zero stars were an option, that is the rating I would have gone for. So, I arrive on a cold and wet New Years Day. We squeeze in to the busy bistro which looks so cosy and inviting from the outside. I ask the woman if she can seat 2. No. We leave, but see a couple leave... More

My girlfriend and I stumbled across this place on New Year's Day and had been walking for a while, in the freezing cold. We couldn't believe our luck, lovely quaint, little cafe restaurant. 15 minutes sat at the table no service, not even an acknowledgment. A local couple walked in, within a minute order taken and served? We were left... More

This is a small restaurant bar that does home cooked food. It's cozy and warm and has a relaxed atmosphere. It is well priced and serves a variety of drinks and food. Lovely place to escape from the cold and is just outside of the usual tourist spots so it's a bit more relaxed.

Thank wildc98

A small cafe/bistro on the corner of Genthof and Langerei in Bruges. Serves limited menu of well-cooked food - good for a light lunch - excellent range of beers. Reasonably priced and we had a warm welcome on a very wet day which was lovely.
