Just noticed you can't simply select 'good' from the ratings, it's either 'average' or 'very good'... We've eaten here before but several years ago, I've rated them very good because the food was great but it was just so busy, we had a reservation for 9pm (Saturday), arrived at 8.55 and were offered two places at the bar to eat...

Last night we had the best dinner during our trip through Belgium. The warm welcome, the premium aperitif and the cosy atmosphere were the perfect beginning of a lovely evening. My wife had a tartare of Sea Bass wich was very tasty and served on the perfect temperature. Myself took the porc cheek in a jummy sauce. (I saw another... More

Absolutely delicious food - from appetizer to main to desert. And the atmosphere is trendy and cozy. Absolutely loved Tom's. Would have eaten here every meal if we discovered it earlier in the trip.

We read a lot of reviews on this restaurant before booking our reservation and had high hopes. We found the food to be pretty good overall but we did have one issue which I will come back to. In our dinner experience here, we found it to be overly rushed, the servers not very attentive or friendly. Overall not bad... More

This place was recommended by our hotel and it was fabulous. The atmosphere was buzzing and it was jam packed with locals, we were almost the only tourists. The waitress was really helpful and guided us with our menu choices which were delicious. The locals were also warm and welcoming. The menu had a great selection of items from cheap... More

My wife and I had 3 nights in brugge over New Years and was very disappointed with the food in general as most places were over priced tourist traps.. After extensive googling we discovered Tom's Diner which was a little bit out of the main centre which was a good sign (avoid the tourist traps). We luckily got the last... More

Enjoyed eating here - really nice vibe and good atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was nice although our main courses were a bit generic and lacking flavour hence only a 4 * and not 5*. Good location just 10 mins away from the busy city centre.

We came here based on the great reviews and we weren't disappointed. It took us a good 15-20min walk to get there, but if you have a map you should be fine. My wife being a vegetarian got a special vegetarian pasta made for her. I went for the basic lunch special of the steak. Overall a great meal. We... More

The place was full and we were 10 so we got the impression that the staff struggled to cope with us. The wine was fairly expensive as were the mains. The steaks were muddled and served to the wrong people by which time the sauces had been added and therefore too late to change. On a quieter evening, it would... More
