Visited here as 2 couples on a one night stay in bruges. We felt very welcomed and the service was excellent. Having never been to a fondue restaurant before we were very impressed. We shared a meat and a cheese fondue between us and both were extremely tasty. Would also recommend the chocolate fondant for dessert which was heavenly! Definitely... More

Was in Bruges for a few days and husband fancied trying fondue. We came across this little place by accident but what a great accident it was. The restaraunt is really quant inside and they have a real fire which makes it really warm and welcoming. We had meat fondue but they also offer a fish version. It was 26... More

With just one night to spend in Bruges, my wife and I wanted to avoid the obvious, tourist joints. We headed for the central square, then explored the little streets tucked away close-by. We spotted Le Petit Patron by chance and decided to give it a try. What good fortune. Our friendly host seated us close to a warming open-fireplace.... More

Had a lovely Swiss cheese fondue here. Fondue was really rich and tasty. It came with bread (which they kept refilling, nice cold meats, melon and a nice fresh salad. Had a lovely bottle of NZ Pinot noir. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant with an open fire. Friendly staff. Would recommend and return.

This restaurant was recommended by some local friends. The location is perfect, right in the middle of Bruges ... still you do not end up being treated as regular tourist. Service was very friendly and made sure that we felt at home immediately. The restaurant is very cosy, and has a great atmosphere. We had the mixed meat platter and... More

We went here during our trip to Brugges to celebrate my husbands birthday. We both found the whole evening delightful. The ambiance of the restaurant is cosy and quiet even though it was quite busy when we were there. The menu is quite varied even though it is a fondue restaurant. We both had the meat fondue; it came with... More

I had dinner at le petit Patron tonight. It's an amazing little restaurant. The decor is as if you are in someone's quaint drawing room. Very warm and friendly. It has mainly a fondue menu. I had the cheese fondue. It was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend it. For dessert I had the chocolate Moelleux which was to die... More
