We ate here with friends on Sat night 22nd August. The restaurant is very nicely set out, good menu of well cooked French & regional food. I had langoustine in panko crumb to start and the steak with fries as a main. Really nicely cooked food washed down with a fine bottle of Pomerol... What's not to like? Recommend...

Mediocre food at excessive prices. Disappointed with our visit as we had read good reviews. Chef served chopped tomatoes with everything (except dessert) .

We received a tip from our Receptionist (Princenhof) to dine here while in Burgess, and we are so glad we did. The establishment is owned and run by one family, mum (being the host and waitress, excellent at what she does), dad (being the chef, really remarkable job) and their little boy. This arrangement gives the place its family feel... More

My boyfriend and I booked a table after receiving high recommendations from our hotel owner. We have to say, well worth it and so glad we did. We were instantly greeted by the owner and shown to our table. The service was impeccable, even considering that the restaurant was full. The food was just outstanding and sadly didn't managed to...

A few years ago I stumbled across this very small amazing restaurant that at the time was just opening - the couple who ran it had just had their second baby. The husband cooks and the wife looks after the front of house! The babies where upstairs asleep - and I think the thing that we just loved was just... More

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
