It's a nice cozy restaurant, located in the center of Bruges. The service is great as well as the food and wine choices. As it doesn't have a big chart, you can be sure that everything is fresh!

Another place slightly off the beaten track in location and menu. You can go for tapas of traditional starter and main. The meat loaf was particularly good. Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Book ahead ....

We ordered the meat loaf and the fish dish - superb! The place is quaint and lively. We didn't have reservations, but the attendant found us a nice little corner to enjoy our dinner.

This was mentioned in Rick Steves and had our hotel make a reservation as it was a Saturday night and we didn't want to walk there and be turned away. They were gracious to let us eat at an earlier time if we could be gone within two hours. We sat by the door and saw many a customer be... More

We loved Tom's Diner. It's small and quaint and the food and service are terrific! You must have reservations for dinner so plan ahead or go for lunch.

Rick Steves convinced us to try this place, and despite no reservation we were able to sit upstairs after a short wait. It's a very nice room, very cozy, with exposed wood beams in an old, charming building. The food was very good, though my dish, a shrimp pasta dish, was on the rich side. The service was fine; unlike... More

We were recommended this by our hotel and it was a good choice. The food and everything else was first rate and pretty reasonably priced. Beware however that if you go in a party of more that 4 you can only choose 4 different main dishes, apparently to manage the pressure on the kitchen who prepare everything fresh. That said... More

We asked the hotel manager to see if eps he could get us a reservation for the next evening. She was doubtful, because it is always booked, but she called and was able to get us... More
