Visited couvert for our anniversary. Food was outstanding, my husband loved the lamb and I had the catfish, delicious. Service was impeccable. Thoroughly enjoyable evening.

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.

Couvert is small non-business-like restaurant with nice decoration. Service was good or even more. The food was delicious and wine matched well with the food. I am going to visit them again, when I am next time in Brugge.

A tiny restaurant run by a charming couple -- he in the kitchen, she out front. The ambiance is lovely, intimate and romantic. But the food surpasses that. We have eaten all over the world in many fine restaurants, but few can surpass the excellent, imaginative cuisine here at Couvert. And the prices are reasonable, especially the fixed price meal....

Good restaurant for a business or private lunch. Excellent food well presented and served. Limited number of tables so cozy atmosphere. Locals and tourists frequent this place. Book to assure a table!

Like many others, this restaurant was recommended by our host at our B&B. While the food was in fact excellent, it was clearly overpriced. Had the service been up to the same level as the food, we would have happily accepted the premium we paid for our meal. I enjoyed the price fixe 3 course meal which included sea scallops... More
