Loved this little bar, service was great and the pasta was some of the most delicious I've ever had. They also have a beer on tap that if I remember correctly only they and around 20 other bars in Bruges have on tap - I believe it was the Chimay. Not usually a beer person but loved it. Highly recommend... More

Just returned from Bruges - found this local bar the first night and visited every night while we were there. Great welcome, cosy bar with great if quite simple food (pasta, pizza mainly). Well worth a visit and away from the touristy heart of Bruges! Make the effort and visit!

We remembered this place from last time, and thought it was worth a return. The atmosphere is great, and the food is pretty good. There is also a great selection of beers. But the thing that makes it special is the guy who seems to run it, all by himself! Obviously there must be someone doing the cooking but we... More

We were with friends and ate the pasta Parazzar. I had the vegetarian version which was great. My friends told me theirs was great too. Before that we had the garlic bread which was delicious! I highly recommend it. The portions were perfect for me. Super delicious pasta, but not too much. Often, restaurants give big portions which you stuff... More

Was looking for a restaurant close to our hotel and asked member of staff for advice, she said that Parazzar was nearby and good. Being a Friday I thought it best to book a table. It was about 4pm that I walked there to do this, the bar was already quite busy so I stayed for a drink. The interior... More

Second visit to this bar. Both times we have had great local dishes. The food is mostly main meals, but you are hard pushed to finish some dishes, as they are a good portion size. Excellent price. Off the beaten track for most tourists, but worth serching out, also very handy for those staying at the hotel Olympia.

Parazzar means in french "by coincidence". In a high street awards the city, you'll almost pass trough it, because it's quiet un markable. It's a very busy local pub, where quality is very important. No lager beer on tap but trappist Chimay triple, no penetrating advertising but art on the walls, no elevator music but vinyl on the mixer, no high headed people but the right heart on the right place, It's always cosy trough de low scale un false ambiance, lovely eclectic music, a late night piano tune by the boss, a suddenly poem trough the speakers, improvisation live concerts, a tear and a lough with our theater in winter. This all makes Parazzar rather a unique place in the very commercial city of Bruges. We stationed symbolic out of the city walls, but very near the culture house (MaZ), the big concert building (t'Zand), 10min walking to the rail station, and close to the locals. U can join a very nice meal made from fresh house made ingredients. Our beloved spaghetti is served to midnight. Wonderful sharp prized cocktails, impressive gin menu, nice wines with several cheese to choose, a lot of alternative non alcohol drinks, en a beer list to be proud of. So, what are you waiting for?
