We were wandering round Bruges in pouring rain, nearer 9 than 8, in search on an "off the square restaurant". Pieter Pourbus looks like a family house and the warm vibe emanating as we walked past simply drew us in. Though rather bedraggled and without a reservation we were welcomed as long lost friends and had a fantastic meal. The... More

I'm so glad we managed to return to this restaurant after all these years. We chanced our luck on our second night, but unfortunately it was fully booked. Therefore we booked for the following night. We were running late for our booking, but called them to let them know. Thankfully this was not a problem. Once inside we apologised for... More

We spend a beautyful evening in a very nice corner - street restaurant Pieter Pourbus. The fish was marvelous and the all in menu is price - quality top just as the service. We certainly 'll visit this restaurant again in the future and we can recommend it.

My hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant as I wanted somewhere local to hotel. We all had steak and chips for main and have to say my fillet steak was sublime and perfect with the chateau-neuf du pape red wine. All starters and puddings were very good too! Family run restaurant. A lovely way to conclude our weekend in Bruges.

After reading TA reviews we decided to try this restaurant while staying in Bruges for 3 nights. It's small and very cozy with a nice atmosphere. It's slightly off the main square and as a result is frequented more by locals than visitors, but that tells you the food and service must be good. We had made a reservation before... More

The title says it all :) We were recommended to have dinner here by our hotel and that was a good suggestion. Excellent fish dishes, a marvelous Cote a l'os, good beer and service. If ever again in Bruges, we'll enjoy dinner here again for sure.

This corner-street restaurant is an understated surprise. We had our hotel make reservations here for a Sunday night, but it wasn't nearly as crowded as many of the other touristy places near the Market Square. We had a delightful meal here, as the other foodie table next to us mentioned at the conclusion of their meal as well. We started... More

We have been in Belgium for three days now and sadly we have fallen for tourist trap resturants the first few nights our of need for quick food and location. Each night we were disappointed. Tonight we did our research and ended up at this cozy, wonderful restaurant. From the beginning, the service was warm, welcoming and informative. We are... More
