Felt like we were back on France. Grouchy server and confusing menus. Waiter was no help. They would not serve tap water. Had to get up to find server to order, get check, etc. Nice location. Food ok. But there are other restaurants next door so why put up with the terrible service?

The Bridge is a brasserie in one of the best locations - even in a quiet time of year it was quite full of locals and we found the food decent and the service highly efficient. Good value for money - especially when you consider the location right in the middle of the historic city centre

Booked a table during the day on a Sunday for 7.30pm, having heard good things from tripadvisor and seen the lovely location. When we arrived the restaurant was fairly quiet, but still had a nice atmosphere. We were shown to our table in the window which was just lovely. I could have sat there all evening even on my own...

we arrived here based on the tripadvisor stars. we left, before we ate. The space, you get is of a 70x70 cm table in a 10 cm distance from the next table neighbor. A salad costs 18 euros. The good thing is its location. Just a step away from the Cathedral. These central locations have something in common. Always full,... More

We enjoyed our meal here very much. We had traditional belgiuic food, which was served with beer we enjoyed. The service was fast, helpful and pleasent. We would defiantly recommend this restaurant to our friends.

Restaurants opposite main attractions are usually only great for the views. The Bridge is fab for the views and the food. Try the ham and cheese crockets for starters, which were delicious. Mussles (in garlic and touch of cream sauce) were super fresh and frites as you'd expect them to be in Belgium. The steak and frites were also tasty.... More

We booked well ahead by email as there was 6 of us and knew December would be busy. We were lucky enough to be given the window table with a great view of the cathedral and Ferris wheel. All 6 of us left very happy having had fantastic food and great service. The Ghent Stew was amazing!
