The restaurant is nice located .... we ordered for "Mosselen Natuur" with French Fries. It was a disappointment .... the mussels were soooo small, no vegetables lala taste and the French fries were not crispy at all, the mayonnaise not fresh. I m sure there are many better places to find in Brugge.

The place looked busy and the sign "muscles and frites" 17Euro initially drew us in. The waiter who tended to us was horribly rude and had no interest in communicating with us like we were fellow human beings. And because of that he mis-recorded our order of ONE muscles deal with two and we were forced to not only eat... More

Would not recommend this restaurant, this restaurant was our 1st stop in Brugge and we found the wait staff to be rude.There were many many more wonderful places to eat as we found out later.

After a day of sightseeing and our last evening in Bruges we decided to make it an early dinner and happened on this cafe in Grote Market square with several other cafes and bars. Since it was a nice evening we opted for the outside terrace. Service was slow and it took a while just to get our drinks. I... More

Small bistro among a few other bistro's in a lively but not overpowering square with some bars opposite. Traditional food with European food and very reasonable . Good service polite and friendly staff. Well worth a visit for an evening meal.

My sisters mussels had cut shell in them, which she cut her mouth on. They were ordinary. I ordered the Flemish stew which I thought should be beef, but the waiter told me was pork (I think this is wrong - so much for trying a local dish). Also very ordinary and lukewarm. Poor beer selection. Chips/fries were miserable -... More

On the main tourist square in Brugge, Belgium, with many options from which to choose, I decided on this one for lunch. Ordered Weinerschnitzel - my favorite, Lyonnaise potatoes, and a local beer. Everything was simply fabulous! The schnitzel was tender and crisp, the potatoes heavenly, and the beer perfect. Service was great and the people watching fascinating. I'd go... More

Nothing to recommend this place. Our waiter was surly and service was slow. Food was ok but expensive.

It was our last night in Bruges and I wanted to eat some Flemish food. We walked through the Market Place where all the restaurants charge roughly €17.50 for a 3 course lunch and €29.50 for a 3 course evening meal. One member of our group wanted an omelette and as the only restaurant that did what I wanted and... More

We just wandered over here after a long day travelling. It's right on the square, had outside heaters,which was nice on a chilly evening and looked inviting. We both just had a snack and dessert which were both fine. I'm sure there are others to choose from, but this ticked a box very well.
