My husband and I were sent to Tom's Diner on the recommendation of our Air BnB host. We were not disappointed though we did have a bit of trouble finding the place! It is well off the beaten track but worth the searching. I had the meatloaf which I absolutely loved. I never thought of putting a rhubarb compote on... More

We chose this restaurant from the reviews on trip advisor. We had our hotel make dinner reservations, and we are glad we did. We would not have been able to eat there without them. That being said, we had a good meal but it was not exceptional, including the meatloaf, which is their house specialty. Fun atmosphere and friendly service!

We live in Bruges ourselves and have been here many times before. We like the fact that they offer a very good cuisine, with lot's of choices. Not only typical dishes, but lots of variety. The drinks are given special attention too, nicely presented. Very good value for money. Most other places would charge you more for the same level... More

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 which was easily... 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 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.
