We planned to visit after researching on TA, but in the end just stumbled upon it! It really is like eating in someone's home. Lovely food, quaint atmosphere and full of locals which is always a mark of a good restaurant in my book. Not cheap, but worth it if you're a lover of good food.

After reading about this small bistro on TA we really wanted to try it out and I'm so glad we did. It is not an easy place to find ( went past it twice while it was closed and missed it) At lunchtime it was very busy so we booked to make sure we could get in for that evening.... More

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, my husband & I set ourselves the challange of finding this French restaurant in a little alley. What a gem! Marsherbes, felt as if you were stepping into someone's home, very cosy, and homely. We were made to feel very welcome, and this tiny restaurant had a great atmosphere. The chef took much pride in his... More

Malesherbes is an extremely small restaurant down a little lane off Katelijnestraat in Bruges. It matters little that the tables are too close together and that intimacy is somewhat undermined by the noisy chatter of modern people. The food is to die for. It is not cheap but then sensitive cooking takes time and preparation. Such care comes at a... More

We went on a Tues evening, it is very small with only 16 covers, quite difficult to find down a small alleyway. But based on TA reviews thought we would visit (best to book as it's so small) Tables are fairly close together so not really for intimate conversation but nice if you like to get to know your neighbors....

You will not find this little gem of a place in the open streets but tucked away down a small ally. Make sure that you do eat here though. We ate here last night and we're not disappointed. Firstly the clientele were mainly local always a good sign. We both had fantastic food. I opted for the special board with... More

While the restaurant may be small in size, it is large on atmostphere and character. The waitress that served us was faultless and very welcoming. She was attentive without being imposing. The wine was delicious and so was the food. Presented well and all cooked beautifully. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to travellers, it is clearly a favourite in... More

The service here was great - the staff accommodated us immediately even though they were closing in twenty minutes, and the waitress was friendly and multilingual. My smoked salmon quiche was lovely and my sister's coq au vin was delicious too. A little pricey, but I don't mind paying for quality.

It does look like a regular shop, but it extends on the left. Not too much variety but that gives me a good impression on the quality, as the food was nice even if they didn't have the chicken. Good service in English

Outstanding , inventive cuisine . Very friendly staff . Few tables set in a room in a small specialty shop . Located in what is probably the narrowest street of old Bruges . Thank you for a wonderfull St Valentine dinner .
