I chose this restaurant based on the trip advisor ratings and was certainly not disappointed. Whilst it took a little while for us to find in the heavy rain, it was certainly worth it.

Maybe a case of too high expectations, we were thinking this was going to be a great meal but came away only OK with our food. The place is nice, small with very helpful staff / owners. No complaints about the prices or the beer, but the service was a bit slow as the place filled up. Steak was fatty... More

Our son managed to get us a table for Saturday evening, our final evening in Bruges together. This was worth the wait! The atmosphere is very warm and friendly, you are made to feel honoured guests. The menu while not extensive has plenty of choice, portions are very generous. The chef's Mushrooms on toast were amazing and the warm goats... More

We had a fantastic evening here as a group of friends when visiting Bruges. Nathalie was the perfect host and treated us all like friends throughout the meal! The food was great and wonderfully authentic. We all had the Belgian menu of cheese croquettes and Flemish stew and steak tartare. The restaurant is a great place to go with a... More

This really is a lovely restaurant to visit. It is small so be sure to book. The food was excellent and would not hesitate to visit again and the only small point was that for us the the portions were over generous.

What a wonderful, quirky, trendy place this is and it's not just the decor and staff that make it so fantastic - the food is amazingly good. My husband and I were planning a trip to Bruges and I found this restaurant via Trip Advisor - it had great revues so I thought I'd give it a go. Made sure... More

We visited over Easter so tried to book in advance and they were full. However we asked them to contact us if there was a cancellation,which they did . It is a really small back street restaurant. It is full of really odd decorations everything from a small model of queen Elizabeth 2 complete with 2 nodding corgis to Jesus.... More

We booked this place in advance and were very pleased we did - lots of people got turned away, and it was only a Thursday. The food was delicious! The menu sounds very simple to the English eye, but don't be fooled - the chef is excellent! Would definitely recommend mushrooms on toast 'chef's way'. In addition, choice of beer... More

Just had a truly lovely evening at Pro Deo for our 27th wedding anniversary. The food is fabulous, really tasty and huge portions. This was our 3rd visit to Pro Deo and we are always made to feel so welcome. Can't recommend this place enough, cosy, quirky and friendly. Can't wait to go back again in November. Very popular so...
