A small restaurant in the centre of Bruges. We picked this after reviewing Bruges restaurants on TA and weren't disappointed. With under 30 covers you need to book, also most restaurants in Bruges have only one early sitting. We weren't rushed and enjoyed impeccable service and beautifully cooked food. This was a really good start to our holiday, can't recommend... More

Family run restaurant, close to the hotel, with personable service and a thoughtful combination of flavours. The baked lobster was particularly excellent and the way the chosen wines complimented the courses made the whole experience delightful.

My wife and I went to Couvert on the recommendation of the owner of the B&B. It's small, only about ten tables in the ground floor of a house. The room is beautifully decorated and feels cozy and intimate. Run by a husband and wife. He cooks and she delivers friendly service out front. Menus wee in Flemish, but our... More

This small restaurant restaurant which only seats around 20 people and is run by a husband and wife team is first class. We dined there last week after being recommended by our hostess and were very fortunate to get the last table. We opted for the set menu something we do not normally do and it was exquisite. The complimentary... More

Couvert is a family owned and operated reastaurant which offers very god food at reatively low cost. We had the prix fix dinner, 51 euros with wine pairing (recummended), 39 without. Very good value in town which has been overrun by tourists and traps for them. Only nine tables, and sold out most nights, so make a reservation.

Recommend by our B & B Cote Canal, had the set menu and it was superb. Asparagus and scallops amazing, lamb main incredibly tender and the vegetables fantastic. Desert strawberries with mascarpone and mint wonderful. We had the wines to accompany and they were very good. Little extras like the longastine cappauchino and the tasting plate to start really makes... More

Stylish small restaurant with amazing food and attentive but discreet service. Small touches like the bowl of cooked winkles served as an appetiser with the drinks before the meal were a surprise and much appreciated . The quality of the main courses and desserts was first class. We had the fixed price menu with wine which we felt was well... More

Beautiful setting, excellent service, great food. I cannot fault it. Avoid other touristy traps especially Refer. If you need good accommodation try Cotecanal.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. The food was delicious and I personally think the Set menu in particular is very good value for money. The wines were fantastic and we couldn't fault the service. So pleased we discovered this restaurant and can't wait to return.
