The Staff is unbelievable unfriendly and the worst thing is that they don’t really care. We tried to make a reservation the day before and called like 6 times but it always was their answeringmachine telling us that it’s monday and that we have to call back eventhough it wasn’t monday. So we took leap of faith and went to the Stoepa without a reservation. When we came in they looked at us like we were some kind of aliens and when we asked for a table they were rolling their eyes... Eventually we got a table, but the staff stayed rude and while they were serving us or drinks and food it felt like they were ignoring us and were just dropping our orders on the table.
I don’t know from where they get the audacity to be that rude and arrogant. Later on we found out that it was on of the managers who was serving us which makes it even worse.

Anyway the food is medicore and overpriced. I’m a local and I don’t get why people are so crazy about this place....

I’ve read some comments before I came here and some other people also mentioned that the staff was rude and unfriendly. Some comments were from 2012... Turns out that they don’t really care because things haven’t changed.

The food was delicious, served in big portions and well presented.
The menu has a mix of European and Asian selection.
The dishes are reasonably priced.
The ambiance is nice, but the tables are s little cramped.
I will go again.

We went for a lunch, the six of us, on an extremely cold day in March. We were greeted by friendly and efficient staff, and by a warm wood stove. The interior is quaint and cozy. We had the scampi wok, which was delicious. Excellent price/quality ratio.

The restaurant is nicely decorated. Friendly staff and nice food giving you value for money. The menu range from curry, to pasta and burger. I would definitely recommend to eat at this place when you are in Brugge and look for a cosy restaurant that is not expensive.

Visited in 2016 and had great cocktails at the bar so decided to return when we were next in Bruges and this time book for dinner.
No English menu but the waiter did best to explain menu - as others have mentioned its pretty eclectic with a variety of different options and no clear theme but that didn't bother us. We had the lamb kebab and indonesian curry, both of which were plentiful and flavoursome.
Our only issue was service which soured it a bit - had to ask a couple of times for drinks, hard to get and pay the bill. There's a lot of choice in Bruges, other places I'd definitely return to, this place maybe just for cocktails.
