This brasserie is situated right in the "Markt", the place to be to see people and things as they happen. I went there with my wife and we both had a superb Beef steak with Salad and French Fries. Good service too. Bruges itself is a wonderful town, worth spending at least a few days in.

The ONLY thing we didn't like about it was how everyone around us was smoking, and as soon as they finished one cigarette, they INSTANTLY lit another...and then another...and so on. Soon, we felt as though WE were smoking and our beers even began to smell and TASTE like it, too. People talk about the healthy diets of Europeans, but... More

We sat there 5 people for a cup of coffee in the middle of a storm and we decided to order some coffees. We thought a bottle of water was needed so we ordered one. A bottle of a liter came to out table and when we ask for the check a cold shower hit us. 9 euro (!!!) for... More

Let's not be naïve; with the weak pound and a beautiful tourist spot, it is not particularly cheap to eat in Bruges. BUT. If you have the approach of you get what you pay for and you will suffer a little with the current economic climate then you won't leave this great restaurant disappointed. The service is professional and courteous,... More

We decided to take a chance with one of the square restaurants. We where seated pretty quickly under a heater. Despite it being busy and the restaurant seemed understaffed. The food came out fairly quickly. We both had the stew which wasn't as good as the one we had yesterday elsewhere. Had the appearance of cheaper and fatty meat. However... More

Worth trip to find this out of the way restaurant. Seems only the locals know about it. Darn good blue plate specials are going to fill you up. Fast friendly wait staff. We were given directions or would never have know about it.

Actually ate twice here by accident!! The first was at the rear, in the evening sun and the other at the front in the afternoon sun. Service standard was good and the range of food better than most on our opinion. The set meals offer the best value but not all restaurants in the square offered a good choice which... More

Nice location. Don't think it is the best in the market square but with so many restaurants to choose from it wasn't a bad choice. The set menu was good value. Service could of been bit quicker.

These two restaurants were opened by the Hotel Weinebrugge that we use for guests and events, so we certainly wanted check it out. Nice ambiance, friendly & efficient service. So many of the restaurants that cater to tourists just don't give attention to detail, but this is not the case at Le Grand Cafe Belfort. Everything is done well for... More

Located in the market place, with a good view over looking the square. We arrived at 2pm and were treated to an excellent lunch. Nothing was a problem, English spoken, and the waters were very good. I had Flemish Stew, washed down with the local beer. I have been here before and would certainly return again.

Thank Brian W
