We arrived at this restaurant, more or less as it was opening on a recommendation. I found that service was a bit slow and the meal was ok, but nothing to write home about. It was a Flemish stew which I had, presented in a different way to what I had expected. I felt it was mimicking posh nosh in... More

This wasn't the highest rated restaurant on trip advisor, although it has 4.5 stars, but the set menus sounded interesting so we thought we'd try it. Plus, at 22.50€ each, this was half the price of many other restaurants in the city. We weren't disappointed- the food was delicious and exactly what we were after on a cold January evening....

We stumbled upon the Golden Fleece by accident as we walked along the back streets of Bruges and were very happy that we did. It is a small bistro type establishment, fairly dark inside and rather olde worldy in character. The waitress (owner I think) was very friendly and gave us a table as far away as possible from some... More

Me and my wife happened across this place by chance and thought we'd give it whirl. We weren't let down the food was excellent, the service was good without being all over you and good selection of beer, not the biggest, but quality stuff. We'll definitely be visiting again next time were in bruges.

Meal was not up to scratch our sirloin was very tough. The weather was hot in Bruges but it was very stuffy. Only one waitress on had to keep asking for drinks and to be served.

We visited for dinner and we're pleased to get a table at this "hidden gem" at the last minute. But as much as I would have liked to support its quirky, outsider spirit, I'd have to say that the food was very average, and probably overpriced for what it is.

We called for a Thursday reservation as many places were closed. Glad we did. Same couple operating for 23 years. Environment is old Brugge and comfortable. My stew was excellent and my wife had the plaice which she very much enjoyed. Service was good. Wine limited to house wines. We would definitely go back.

We stumbled on 't Gulden Vlies and we're very glad we did. Great food, great service, and some really good alternative dishes to the ubiquitous mussels, grilled meat and fries. Also happened to be the cheapest of six nights dining out in Bruges.

After an excellent meal last year, we were keen to see if anything had changed, and thankfully not. The food was still very good. Traditional Flemish with all sorts of herbs and spices adding subtle undertones. Some excellent bottled beers, favouring the local small breweries, complement the food. Set 3 course meal with drinks came to €66, excellent value. The... More

The frontage to this little gem is small but I am so pleased I found it and phoned immediately to book a table for four. Just as well as being first into the restaurant it filled to capacity (+/- 28) in a short space of time. Good choice of set or a la carte menus, the later is large enough... More
