The restaurant was fairly busy on the day of our visit but we had first class, polite service. The food on our fixed price menu was superb, and excellent value. A really enjoyable evening. The competition amongst the many restaurants in this area is fierce, but I think we really hit on a good one this time!

Simple, fresh food and a lovely calm atmosphere. To begin with, we were given a free starter of cured meats, pea soup and crackers, which was a nice touch. We then had the grilled chicken and prawn salad, which was a generous size and the chicken and prawns were very flavourful and tender. Also had brown shrimp croquettes, crisp and... More

We reserved a table at this restaurant based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. The food was exactly the sort of food we'd hoped to avoid - not very good. Both our mains were overcooked and the soup was very watery. My sauce served with the main was also very watery and tasteless. The 'free' dish given on arrival should have... More

We came to Bruges in January when most of the 'top-rated' restaurants on here were closed, and happened to pass by this while wandering around, had a good feeling about it and booked a table for the evening. I have to say, I can't imagine how any of the other places could have been better! The service was excellent, the... More

This lovely small bistro gives you high quality dishes with a good portion size and great taste. Would recommend dining here when you want to sit more quietly than the more popular restaurants in Bruges. The staff is very friendly. Living in Bruges made us try out loads of different restaurants, and 't Klein Genoegen is surely in our TOP... More

My boyfriend and I stumbled across this AMAZING restaurant while we were walking around the streets of Brugge. As soon as we looked at the set menu we knew we wanted to eat there. We booked a table for the evening the same day by walking in during lunch time - the staff were very helpful. Everything about the experience... More

Was a very pleasant find having walked around and seen too many menus of just steak and mussels (I like both, but it's a bit boring twice in one day). Beware that they only take cash and if you want more than just a quick main course you need to arrive well before the 2100 that they advertise as last... More

Went there last Friday evening. Congestions on the road delayed our arrival in our B&B and therefore our arrival in the restaurant. We had booked for 20:30 and arrived at 21:00. Upon arrival the waiter immediately told us: "You are late, you cannot have the menu, you can only have a main course". Well we know we are late, thank... More

We had the three course diner. Fish soup, beef and chocolate fondant. The fish soup was very good (as was the prawn croquette). The beef was very nice (medium done). The desert was tasteful. I can recommend this restaurant.

This cozy restaurant had it all. There were six of us, and all of us were happy with our meals. I especially enjoyed the Flemish stew I ordered. Good service, too.
