Worth the Walk

We decided to walk up to Tom's based on the reviews. We went quite early, but the resturant was full and we only got place at the bar, which I think is actually better. I ordered sea bass with ratatouille and a pea dressing which was amazing. My missus ordered chef's prawn pasta in curry coco sauce... read more

Tom's Diner is off the beaten path, but well worth the walk. I went at lunchtime and had a delicious, sort of deconstructed spicy Mexican wrap.

This is a very good little restaurant with an eclectic menu including some typical Flemish dishes. We found the atmosphere romantic, the wine selection adequate, the service good, and the food great. One surprisingly peculiar glitch: They do not allow you to take home left overs!!?? So, eat all your food.

We tried to eat outside of the main centre of Brugge and found this place in one of the quieter districts although still within easy walking distance of the centre. The place seemed busy with locals rather than tourists which was encouraging and everything was great.

This was my favorite dinner in Bruges. The menu is varied and the service was excellent. Would definitely recommend Tom's.

this lovely little restaurant is situated just outside Brugges and is well worth the walk but do book first as it is very popular especially later evening and weekends. The menu is small but all the ingredients are fresh, of high quality and very tasty. The prices are very reasonable in comparison to the City restaurants too.

Our last night in Brugge after a very long day bike riding in the Flemish countryside. The pasta and the meatloaf were both outstanding. The service was just a bit slow but the food worth the wait.

I read great things about Tom's Diner prior to getting to Bruges, and it was on the bucket list - I can say it did not disappoint. Exceptional food, exceptional range of beers, exceptional service. Highly recommended.

My husband and I choose Tom's Diner because of good reviews we'd seen, and because of the tapas-style menu they offer. (We, especially I, have small appetites.) I'm so glad we did! Everything was wonderful. We ordered 4 items. In the order they were served: tomato salad with smoked mozzarella, delicious! Shrimp scampi had a house-made barbecue sauce that complemented... More
