My partner and I (being such foodies!) have been very underwhelmed by the quality and price of the food in Bruges as we expected the food to be excellent here due to its popularity for chocolate and beer. However, we then found this little gem of a restaurant 'De Vlammsche Pot' and I must say that this was most definitely... More

This restaurant is a perfect example of how somebody can take a beautiful , cozy and well decorated place and turn it into a cold, unfriendly experience for the guest.I guess it hast to do with the lack of humor of the Belgians.Ok,The beef stew melts in your mouth,but that's it.Don't expect anything more!Avoid the steaks (One of the worst...

I had a great meal but my husband had a steak which was very tough. The atmosphere is quaint and cozy but the food was a let down for my husband. Would not take the chance if we visit Brugge again

Customer service is relatively poor and somewhat rude... The rabbit stew was excellent and the Apple purée sauce was delicious! Mussels can be missed... Beer excellent! We would return just for the rabbit stew

Came here at the suggestion of the Bed and Breakfast. Wonderful choice. Service was wonderful and personable with some great suggestions from the waiter. If anything, the food is in too large a portion! Prices were great and the beer / wine selections were right on point. Do not miss this authentic spot.

This is a lovely, cosy restaurant. I booked ahead, but there happened to be a couple of tables still left on a Friday evening. Staff were friendly, and quick to seat and serve me. I was ravenous so I ordered a three-course menu, which I quickly realised I would struggle to finish! The pate was good if a little exciting,... More

We were told about this restaurant by some locals. The food is authentic flemish style. You will not leave hungry! Cosy with an open fire and ambient lighting. Attentive and friendly staff. Worth a visit.
