If you are in Bruges, don't miss this restaurant. The food is delicious, the interior charming, and the service is fantastic. Definitely make a reservation as the place is small and they let diners linger (which makes for a great evening out!) This was one of our favorite meals in Belgium.

The place is cosy, the decoration is amusing the waitress is friendly. It gets full almost every night, so make a reservation beforehand! The food is very good. The popcorn curry at the beginning was nice, also the beef stew was delicious. It is easy to find a parking place. Deserves a visit! :)

This is our second trip to this very small restaurant. Reservations required. I had the beef stew and croquettes. We spent hours here and the service was fantastic. Very nice people. Our favorite place in Bruges.

The meal we had at Pro Deo was one of the best we have ever had. Flemish Beef Stew cooked to perfection. Nathalie is the perfect host and it is refreshing to find someone who is so passionate about what they do. Give it a try but you will need to book as it gets very busy. Highly recommended!!

Second night in Bruges and we came across this gem. This tiny little eatery has to be one of the coziest places we've been to. The detailed decor, dimly lit dining room and soft music will make you forget it's cold outside. Service is fantastic and (apparently) done by the owner and she's lovely and helpful. The food is rustic,... More

Great service, great atmosphere and yummy food! Lovely little place to enjoy local cuisine. The lady serving us was friendly and accommodating! It's so small, popular and very busy hence try book to avoid disappointment!

Great service here - cosy and eclectic restaurant. Had a lovely Belgian meal - cheese croquettes and Flemish beef stew - no room for dessert. You will need to book - fully booked on a Wednesday night in March - owner was turning green people away. Worth the walk from the centre.

Everything to like about this bistro is good. From the warm and friendly lady owner. Natalie. to the discreet lighting, the beer, ZOT OH YES. To the lovely traditional Beef stew. with frites and salad. Go there you wont regret it. But book at least a week before.

Thank anthony g
