It was a bit sad not to see this place full to bursting. We were the only couple in there at first, then another joined. This was actually our most memorable meal during our trip to Bruges and Ghent - and we ate really well. Presentation isn't the most polished - a bit rustic, really - but the taste was... More

We went here on the recommendation of the concierge and are so pleased we did! It is a small restaurant of around 20 covers in a converted townhouse in a quiet side street in Bruges. The house has been converted beautifully with exposed brickwork an open upper level and small bar. We dined as a family but would be a... More

Small intimate with amazing food. Close to the centre of Bruges this small restaurant is packed with surprises. The food was fantastic.

I wanted to organise a special birthday dinner for my partner in romantic Bruges and after a recommendation from our hotel based on my likes and dislikes, I locked in Restaurant Couvert for a Saturday night the week prior to our arrival and we were delighted with the result! The restaurant is off the tourist map, but an easy walk... More

A gem of a restaurant in a relatively quiet street off city centre. Only 18 covers makes this bijou establishment comfortable with no piped music to irritate. Excellent food from husband and wife combination,

The positives: nice amuse (shrimp on avocado mousse with tomata coulis), starter was nice gazpacho with tomato-cucumber salad and fired fillet of fish, the half lobster with basil and butter was perfect. The bread was delicious. The sosos: the desert (lemon sorbet on fruit) was missing some spirit. Music was still audible, but luckily not very loud. Would have been... More

Recommended by our hotel the relais across the bridge. Very happy we went and had a wonderful evening with my girlfriend. A Lovely little spot just off the Canal run by husband and wife team. Fantastic cooking (I had the fish and was a great choice, the steak also looked delicious). Highly recommend visiting if staying in Bruges.
