My wife, daughter and I had an excellent lunch here on out last day in Bruges. I wish we had come earlier and more often! The cheese croquettes were nice, and our daughter filled up on those and the nice bread and butter. Sadly for her she didn't have room for much of her mom's filet mignon as a... read more

Had a wonderful meal on my wife's birthday and I can not compliment the owners enough. We were made so welcome it was like eating at a friends house. The music is easy listening like Dean Martin and many more. The food was out of this world and they even bought out a sweet and sang happy birthday to my... More

My wife sweet talked Nathalie into a late booking for the 4 of us and having been there before we were excited to allow our 18/15 year olds to enjoy the "eclectic" atmosphere. Great food again from Kristof (Flemish stew and the steak in particular) and amiable and relaxed service from Nathalie. Don't expect to be rushed into courses, kick... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel and we weren't disappointed. We arrived at 6.30pm as a last minute booking and we're glad that we booked because people coming in after us were turned away. We have two young children and we felt very welcome, even though we managed to break a glass! The food was really delicious... More

My wife and I had great meals at pro Deo. It is a small restaurant, with fun furnishings and music, and I believe it is run by a couple, so there is one cook and one front room person - so when dinner service is in full swing, service can be a bit slow, but not annoyingly so. My wife... More

This is a lovely little gem, and as our guest said it best : 'an extremely cosy feeling inside!' The service was top notch again (thanks Nathalie!) and so was the food (thanks Kristof). The shrimp croquettes were just as they needed to be and came with a beautiful salad. The paté came with pickled gherkins/onions/capers and plenty of bread... More

The restaurant itself was small and cosy which made it feel a lot more personal and private and able to cater for the needs of all. But as we ordering out starters we were asked if we could order the same starters as the kitchen was small. This was frustrating as it wasn't mentioned previously. I had cheese croquettes which...

This small bistro is about 10-15 mins walk from main square, the food is typically Flemish, not too much choice for vegetarians. We were told to choose similar meals as the kitchen was very small, I found that quite strange and limiting. However the hostess was charming and overall a nice place.

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to try this restaurant. We could not obtain a table for the first night but managed a reservation for second night. We sat outside which was fine on a summers night (with a bit of traffic noise from passing vehicles). Both had the Flemish stew which was excellent. Highly recommend.

My partner booked this restaurant for our first night in Bruges whilst we were still in England. Good job he did as while we were sitting down to eat, he counted 20 customers being turned away! Booking is essential to enjoy this quirky little establishment run by a friendly couple who serve good, plentiful food at reasonable prices. We wished... More
