We would recommend that you book this fab restaurant. You will not be disappointed. I had the sardines to start and t'other half the shrimp croquettes. Lovely. I followed with the rib eye and he the rack of lamb. It was the best rib eye I have ever eaten. Melted in my mouth. Although we were quite full we finished... More

We booked well in advance for a evening meal here and were not disappointed. The bistro is well off the tourist track (not that most restaurants in Bruges are above average in busy areas as well as beyond). The facility was very comfortable and homely, and the service was attentive. The meal we had was a delight, with everything fresh... More

If you are staying at the Rosenburg hotel, as we were, then De Schaar is almost on your doorstep: lucky us, lucky you! If you're anywhere else in Bruges please walk the couple of hundred metres to this very fine restaurant - you will not regret it. It's in a lovely canalside villagey location, well in touch with the city... More

Or party of 4 ate here for our first evening in Bruges and we all loved every course we ordered. We particularly recommend the mushrooms with snails in curry sauce starter and the steaks were superb. Really nicely paced service which gave enough time between courses for a relaxed evening. All the food came out nice and hot. Profiteroles were... More

Absolutely faultless, well worth the wait and certainly worth making the effort to walk from our hotel. Heidi was a little reluctant to take our booking as previous residents at our hotel had not turned up. Fools! If only they knew what they were missing! Between the four of us we sampled the sardines, the herring, and the salmon for... More

We arrived at a b&b down the street from this restaurant and our host recommended eating here as we were late and didn't have reservations. How lucky we were. This was a lovely place to eat. Quaint romantic atmosphere. wonderful drinks and the food was fresh and oh so tasty! prices were reasonable too. A great stop, Will visit again.

Stopped here for dinner, they were just opening. We ordered a king prawn and pasta dish and a rack of lamb and veggies, both we're amazing, would definitely go there again

Our group of three had different menu elections and we agreed that each was beautifully cooked and nicely presented. The meats were tender and I must say that the profiteroles were possibly the best I have ever had. Maybe it was the chocolate? We decided to try the Chilean Carménère wine and it looked like the best value selection, and... More
