The food was a little pricey but it's made up for by a nice environment. We tried the Flemish Stew, this version was quite peppery but tasty.

Came here based on the recommendation of my otherhalf as she visited on her last trip to Bruges, she wasn't wrong, the Bolognese was fantastic and the Flemish Stew is out of this world! The beers were great and the atmosphere perfect, all topped off by fantastic service from Jan!

Hi StewieSalty, We are sorry to hear that you didn't like our food. I can assure you that our food is homemade, that we take pride in trying to make original dishes with local and seasonal products and that we do believe pricing reflects the quality we offer. Hence our market menu at 20 euros for 2 dishes and 25... More

Outstanding beef carbonnade, hearty soups washed down with unpasteurised Bruges Zot! Other beers are available but to be honest why would you bother!

The restaurant has four ambiences bar, restaurant nivel 0, restaurant nivel 1 and 2 (restaurant nivel 2 for events) The food is just regular, but you can try the local beer without pasteurization process. Good to stay eating and drinking while wait till the tour in the brewery.starts.

the brewery tour was crowded (5pm), interesting, narrow place. The guide told us in an hour tour about the history of how it became the Brugse Zot. The rooftop view in the dark was very nice with lots of lights. After the tour we could go to the restaurant to get our complimentary Brugse Zot. Very good tasty light beer.... More

The XL tour is the way to go - it is more expensive but worth it as there is a full tasting at the end of the tour. Did eat at the restaurant prior to doing the tour and the food we had was very good - a cheese platter and a bowl of soup. We got in to a... More

The food was neither warm nor tasty. Furthermore the staff was not friendly at all. While I fully recommend the brewery tour I would never eat again at the restaurant

I want to start by saying, if you look at my profile I am very generous with my reviews. This place, however, was terrible. From start to finish, everyone that worked there was grumpy and I felt like I was cattle being pushed along through the tour. The place felt very commercial and their beer pales in comparison to the... More
