Delicious local food

We've had a great meal in a very picturesque atmosphere. Excellent service. Strongly recommended if you are in Brugge.

The wait for food is totally worth it at this restaurant (and there are a number of warnings regarding the sometimes lengthy preparation of food) and the generous portions were very welcome. I would reccommend for any travellers to Bruges who are looking for traditional Flemish food served in a charming setting. The service was good, if a little brusue,... More

We had booked a table at another restaurant in town but after reading a review of De Vlaamsche Pot we decided to try it. We were not disappointed - great food, thoroughly professional service and charming decor. At the front of the menu the restaurant ensure you know that the food will be made to order and therefore there will... More

2 words ... Beef Stew. Wow, it was fantastic. And, well I guess 2 more words would be useful ... Make Reservations. The Flemish Pot was cozy, friendly and delicious.

My husband and I dropped in here on january 1st without a reservation and were seated fairly quickly even though the place was packed. My husband had the rabbit and I got the tartare. The portions were huge: half a rabbit and about 400 grams of meat! There was no way either of us could eat that much, but we... More

Had New Year's Eve dinner here - such a great way to start the evening! Wine/beer was great, but the food was just incredible. Completely worth a visit.

Firstly, you must make a booking before coming! As we sat warm and relaxed in our seats, we saw people being turned back out into the cold all night because there just wasn't any room. The restaurant itself is beautiful! You can feel its history. And the food, well the food is the reason for going and it did not... More

We regularly visit this charming restaurant in Bruges and have been returning here for about 10 years. It is so nice we sometimes just come over from England for the day just to have a meal there. The traditional Flemish food is always delicious, very generous portions and we have tried most of the menu. The chicken waterzooi and the... More

We were a bit worried that the place could be a bit more touristic that but I interior was so magical we decide to take the shoot. And we were rewarded with a mouthwatering... More

Visited December 2014 on recommendation from the hotel we were staying at. Could not get in the first night but managed to get a reservation for the following evening. So glad we did. The food was delicious, the Waterzooi (a stew of fish, potatoes, celery, onions, cream etc) was one of the best meals I have had in a restaurant... More
