Good quality

Having read reviews of this restaurant we booked ahead for a Sunday evening. We arrived to find an empty restaurant, with only one other booking for the evening. This meant really good service.

Great food, personal friendly service, cosy intimate atmosphere and not to expensive. Only 18 seats so book early to avoid disappointment. They are closed Monday and Tuesday.

I was most impressed with this quaint little restaurant, the ambience, food and service was second to none. I have recommended this restaurant to other visitors to Bruge, they will not be disappointed. I had the fresh salmon pasta as a starter the best I have ever tasted. The main meal again was superb and my desert of chocolate tart... More

I chose Malesherbes for 6 of us to dine last Saturday as it had good reviews on gluten free dishes. The restaurant was found down an alleyway which if we weren't looking for it, we would probably not have known it was there - which is a shame but a delight in equal measure as we felt that we found...

The Malesherbes is also a popular restaurant with the locals like me and if you pass by you will notice the cosiness of this place. The very friendly owner is there for more than 20 years. The dishes are somewhat French inspired, nice atmosphere and unlike what you would expect : this is not a touristtrap ! friendly correct priced... More

The welcome is excellent and the atmosphere charming however, the starter of foie gras and apple was lovely as was the dessert of chocolate mouse but the main of duck with red fruits was disappointing. The cod with langoustine sauce also needed a little more seasoning. So much of this restaurant is right but it did not live up to... More

We chose this restaurant from Trip Advisor recommendations and we were not at all disappointed. We happened on a slow evening when there were only a few other diners, so I cannot vouch for times when this place is crowded, but, and a large but, we had a delicious meal. My husband thought it was the best he had ever... More

This is a very small place, with friendly service and very good food. I like the fact that it doesn't feel touristic, because most places in Bruges do. A good option for dinner!

We found this restaurant by accident while wandering the streets of Bruges. I had fish which was amazing but my bf had a stake which was probably one of the best stakes I've ever tasted!!! The lady who served us was really nice and welcoming and she speaks like four languages. Their house wine was very good and I mostly... More

Very small French cousin restaurant. It is located in narrow side street from main busy commercial street. Booking rather necessary due to limited number of tables. We had steak, duck leg and sausage casserole and some starters. Moderate portion size hence enough room for starters. All very good but duck leg was exceptional. It is worth visit just to try...
