We were pleased to book this for the night of our arrival, and it was just like being in the family front room, with the children of the house drawing on one of the tables, and the friendly hostess welcoming us. We felt very much at home, and enjoyed the food, which was excellent. The restaurant had been recommended by... More

As part of a roadtrip, we visited Bruges. Randomly we saw this restaurant and immediately liked the atmopshere. I had the bread aubergine caviar, the hare with apple and a chocolate mousse dessert. The bread with aubergine is probably One of the most memorable dishes i have ever eaten!!! Every ingredient blended in perfectly and together they made an extremely... More

My wife and I arrived mid afternoon on Friday with no reservation and by luck our hotel was able to secure an early table for my wife, 1 year old daughter and I. The lady that served us (the owner) was super and her children came out to say hello to our little one. The food was fabulous and the... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Bruges. I had a super north sea bouillebaise and my wife had lamb and she raved about it. Loved the art work on the ledge of the mantle. A budding young artist from Bruges.

We visited Le Couvert upon recommendation from the hotel. It's a small restaurant with a handful of tables (seating probably 15-20 people at most) run by a husband and wife. The food, from starters/appetisers through to dessert was delicious and the hostess was very friendly and translated the menu into English for us. Unfortunately the filet steak was closer to...

We ate here on our last night of 7 days in Bruges. What a divine find. The restaurant is conviently located near the canals but on a quiet side street. Let's just start with the Winkles, which are tiny sea snails. They were served right along with the bread and olives, like an amuse buche, only better. The food was... More

Our concierge sent us to Couvert as it was close to our hotel. It is a charming intimate restaurant with a homey feel. The food is lovingly prepared and the service is excellent.
