Just a footnote, really, to a review I wrote in June 2015. We liked Malesherbes so much that we returned in November and found the food, the wine, the service and the ambiance just as good as when we went originally. The small but perfectly formed restaurant is beginning to feel like our home base in Bruges. There is both... More

Such a fab evening. The food was delicious, atmosphere lovely and Ann the owner couldn't be more accommodating. There were only 4 of us, but before we knew it we had consumed 3 bottles of vino, and it wasn't just because the wine was nice, but we were just chilled and relaxed here and didn't notice how much we had...

As I've titled my review the second time around, obviously I ate there again and did so because the previous time I had an excellent meal. I was not disappointed this time either. The meal is excellent, the prices reasonable. If you require a luxury setting or a romantic one, don't eat here - the decor is very ordinary but... More

My partner had a brilliant meal here on a previous visit to Bruges so decided to take me there. It is a very small, intimate French inspired restaurant which is run by very friendly people. The food (and the Chablis) was amazing so absolutely no complaints...shame we weren't in Bruges for longer or we would have returned.

Food here is french, tasteful and with no frills! As it is a very small restaurant the owner herself serves the tables and suggest what to eat and drink. Take whatever she offers, as she really knows what she is doing! Of course being a french place the house wine is... French and delicious! Great value!

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. Whilst there a party of 8 came in along with another couple. As there are only about 18 covers this filled the room well. Neither of us... More

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...
