'A Real Find'

On a weekend break to Bruges we passed this restaurant and we were fortunate to be able to book a table for four for the evening. We ordered from the set menu and the food was superb, reasonably priced as were the drinks. The service was efficient, good-humoured and not rushed: the restaurant... read more

Visited this restaurant on recommendations on Trip Advisor, so glad we did. Pretty, cosy little restaurant. Popped in during the afternoon to book for the evening and luckily managed to reserve the last available table. We had the 3 course menu for 18 euros - food was amazing. Highly recommend and would definitely advise booking in advance.

Tried to book here for the evening, but they were fully booked, so popped in at lunch on the off chance they'd have a table and they did. My friend and I went for the a la carte menu- I had the trout with almonds and she had the garlic scampi - the food was delicious! everything cooked to perfection,... More

We had a lovely 3 course lunch here for 18 Euros, with options including steak, chicken and salmon. Attentive staff and excellent food in an intimate setting. Loved it!

Firstly, book this place well in advance! I lost count of the amount of people reluctantly turned away. With all these people being turned away I thought we were going to be rushed to eat, pay and be on our way. This was not the case and it probably was the best meal we've ever had out. The waiter and... More

We went to this restaurant after reading the Trip Advisor reviews and it was exactly as advertised. It's a small restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere, the food quality is excellent and the set menu is exceptional value for money. Because its small and popular you must book in advance.

The food was superb but a little higher priced than some but not to say expensive. I had the Pâte' de Foie Gras (goose not duck) and the Dover Sole. Absolutely amazing. My wife had the shrimp salad and beef stew, a few drinks plus desert a little over 100 Euros. In the U.S. I would pay much more. Reservations... More

We have visited here two years in a row now and on both occasions the staff were friendly, every meal was fantastic, location is brilliant when seated outside on a sunny day and price is very reasonable. Book in advance!!

My husband and I happened upon this delightful restaurant on our visit to Brugge during the Pentecost weekend. As this is a holiday time for a good number of European countries, the city was filled to the brim with tourists like ourselves and the streets were very thick with pedestrian traffic. Once inside this small, charming restaurant, the crowd noise... More

We visited Gruuthuse this evening after walking past last night. We were very lucky and were able to reserve a table for this evening and were not disappointed. We had an excellent meal, the quality was very good, service was very good, even though the restaurant was busy we were not rushed which gave us time to enjoy the ambience... More
