Like the couple below, I did some research and picked one michelin starred restaurant to eat in for our four day trip. I was not disappointed! The restaurant was exactly how i'd expected it to be, classy and sophisticated nestled away in one of the quietest and most sought after streets in the city. The food was superlative.. the tastes...

While researching restaurants for our trip, I wanted to eat in 1 special, Michelin starred restaurant in each of the 3 cities that we would be traveling to. I was surprised to see so many options in Bruges. I expected a large number in London and Paris, but thought that a smaller city would be easier to choose from. I... More

A meal was booked months in advance for a special birthday surprise. We rang a few hours before to ask if we could possibly come a little later....the response was very rude "Hundreds of people have asked for a table today and being turned away!" "If you don't come we will charge 65euros per person!" We stated that we would... More

Like a previous reviewer, I don't understand why this restaurant is not much higher up the ratings list. The food is wonderful, the service is attentive, and, perhaps a little unusual for a Michelin starred restaurant, it's warm and friendly. This is a special place for a special occasion, where the evening is not just about the food, but the... More

Located in a quiet neighborhood but within walking distance from city center. Hostess extremely welcoming with lovely smile and attentive. The tasting 4 course is well presented and exciting to the palate.

This was recommended to us by a Belgian colleague.... we were not disappointed. The restaurant has a lovely feel to it; the service is first class; the food is wonderful and the wine list excellent. It's not cheap but top quality isn't. As a previous reviewer said 'well worth their Michelin Star'. The chef and owner came to see us... More

Why this restaurant doesn't get a higher rating on tripadviser defeats me. The food here is astonishingly good. The brill alone was such a new combinations of tastes that I had to send my compliments to the chef. It's rare to be truly surprised by a dish. Highly recommended for the delicious menu. Reassuringly expensive as one would expect, but... More

My boyfriend surprised me with this restaurant as a treat on our holiday in Bruges. The restaurant had a lovely feel to it inside especially since it was quiet. We had about 6 small meals which were all perfect. I had never even tried half of the things that came out like the avocado, crab and mint but everything was... More
