Excellent restaurant... it was hidden in an alley which makes it more charming and the food was fantastic. The duck and lamb were cooked to perfection. Service was really good.

Simply the best. Fabulous food, great owners. Don't go to Bruges and leave without dining there. We'll certainly be back.

This restaurant came recommended to us and we were so happy that we gave it a try. The service was exceptional and warm. This small, cozy place is down a little alleyway, which added to the charm. Our meal was delicious, especially all the duck dishes. The gizzards in the salad were unbelievable. We would definitely return.

We loved our stay in Brügge and enjoyed the excellent food. The Fish soup was superb as well the salad as starters. The kish ... As Main meal ... !!! We had a wonderful lunch. Come early as the restaurant is small and the opening time is somehow between 12-2 pm ...!

After a successful visit earlier this year we decided to revisit this local French orientated cafe style eatery. This place is tucked away down an alley but worth finding try. Decor low key and cafe style but intimate and a mix of nationalities eating there. Nibbles to start with our pre dinner drinks. To start with I had a salad... More

Looking for somewhere to eat off the main tourist track, we came upon this French gem down a small alleyway. Very French-looking dining area, excellent service and a varied menu, with weekly specials. The fish dish was superb, with salmon, monkfish and eel in a Marseilles-style stew/soup. Fish was so fresh and flavours were wonderful. The ongelet steak was perfectly... More

We discovered this hidden but quiet little place by accident while wandering on the most narrow street of Bruges - Stoofstraat. Had a quick look from the outside and decided on spot to stretch our legs beneath one of the small tables we saw inside this French restaurant. From the entrance we could not see very good the restaurant but... More

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of eating at Malsherbes during a recent trip to Bruges. We had scanned through the Top 10 restaurants (according to TripAdvisor of course!) and had decided Malsherbes would be where we would try. When we initially got there we were told that they were fully booked that night but they'd be more than... More

I saw a couple of negative reviews but the good ones outnumbered by 100 to 1, so I went for it....two days on the trot! The boss hasn't got a bad bone in her, multi-lingual and very funny and extremely polite. The food was delicious and great wine at a reasonable price. The food was excellent and all in all,... More

We booked the table for 4 persons before we went to Bruges. The woman and the guy were so impolite that they told us that they do not have any reservation. And the restaurant was totally empty at that time. They were really rude. I do not reccomend this resto just because of this behaiour.
