The food is great, authentic , local and that could be enough reason to go. The hospitality from Nathalie was almost too good to describe in the limited words in this box. After she noted my wife walking to our table with a cane, Nathalie offered to bring my wife a foot stool that made her much more comfortable throughout... More

Lovely little restaurant. About 15 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the tourisctic center. Great Belgian food, beautifull decorated retro interior. Not expensive at all. Best to make reservation in advance.

The food is as good as the reviews on here say - I went specifically for the Flemish stew, which was outstanding. Nathalie the owner is as charming as everyone says too. What really impressed me was her non-commercial customer friendly attitude. Take your time she said, the table is yours for the night, we only do one sitting. 2... More

As the title says - I had tried mussels before, but they weren't for me. Having read the reviews on this site before visiting, I thought I'd give them another try. They were super! I had the white wine sauce, my husband had the Bruges Zot (Belgian beer) sauce. There was hardly enough room on our table for all the... More

I emailed Natahlie, the owner two weeks prior to our arrival in Brugges and received prompt confirmation of our reservation. Reservations are recommended as the restaurant is small and busy. The food is delicious- I had the Flemish Stew and my husband had the mussels. We also shared the shrimp and cheese appetizer. Everything is delicious and so fresh. The... More

Me my fiance and our 8 week old daughter chose this restaurant because of the great reviews and we were not disappointed. Our greatest fear was of course that our daughter would scream so we fed her properly beforehand in hope she would stay calm which she usually does. This night was different and right of the bat she started... More

The only reason I can think of for Pro Deo not being #1 in Bruges is that the lazy tourists may not get there as it is not right in the centre. It is well worth the short walk and the food, ambiance and staff are top notch. My wife and I had a lovely evening there and would have... More

Cannot say enough about my dinner in August at Pro Deo. Making a reservation was seamless as Nathalie immediately booked me and confirmed she could accommodate my gluten allergy. (Reservations are a must as this place is tiny!). She was so sweet she even purchased a loaf of gluten free bread for me to start with during dinner, marking the... More

Had dinner at Pro Deo due to recommendations from Tripadvisor. I had the scampi to start with, which to my surprise was prawns and not the proper scampi as expected. Still, it was very good but looks a tad overwhelming because it was swimming in oil. I then had the mussels for main....my gosh, it was huge! It could easily... More

My husband and I ate here tonight. Wonderful food and very attentive hosts. Would definitely eat here again and would whole heartedly recommend to all. Good place to visit if you're into soul music.
