Cosy place with good food

A local host brought us to this place and it was a good recommendation indeed. We had duck, and beef steaks. Food was good, but the service was a little slow.

We are regular guests at Bistro De Schaar and do want to point out the excellent price for the quality you get. Very friendly and personal service. Especially the way they prepare their meat dishes is really something else. Enjoy!

We were looking for alternatives to the tourist traps, and found this restaurant a longish walk from the center of the city -- and worth it. My wife had wonderfully prepared salmon, while I had a generous and tasty rack of lamb. We arrived early on a Saturday night with reservations. By the time we left the place was packed.... More

You can pay a lot for not a lot in Brugge. We came here speculatively after a day at the Brugge Beer Festival on 07/02/2015. In't Nieuw Museum, our first choice, was full, but this place was in the vicinity, and they squeezed us in upstairs. The dining room is attractive, and the service is polite if a tad stiff.... More

We were recommended Bistro de Schaar by our hotel and could not be happier with the recommendation. The atmosphere felt right as we walked through the door. We were greeted immediately and shown to a table. Bistro de Schaar is not a big restaurant and that is part of its charm....everything feels as though you are being cared for personally.... More

On recommendation from our hotel Jan Britto we went to De Schaar. An excellent steak house, really worth the visit. The house wine was very good too, only the dessert of Chocolate Mouse looked a bit awkward...

A very nice and cosy place! Nice staff as well. The food was alright but not splendid, especially the meat. The portions were huge! The dessert, Dame blanche, was great!

Honestly, some of the best food that we have ever had the pleasure of sampling. Charismatic and warm interior but found the waitress service a little on the frosty side.

We visited the restaurant with friends and sat just inside the door to the right. The restaurant is not large but happily the number of tables is right for the space available. New to us was he fact that the Chef, Nico, cooked the meats and fish at what I can only describe as a very posh indoor built in... More
