Very impressive, book in advance!

If you like steak then this is a must. The place is off the beaten track and take about ten minutes from the main market square where the Belfry tower is.

Having been spoilt at Ribs and Beer the previous night we found our dinning experience to be a little bland. There is nothing wrong with the food served, but it was over priced. The drinks are also very expensive.

A fantastic meal in an off the beaten path restaurant. (Nice walk from the hotel along the canal) Husband / wife run with Belgian fare. Very good wine choices, and the Mussels dish was PERFECT. Nice variety on the menu, a little light for vegetarians. Reservations a MUST! Should be a stop on everyone's dinner plans when in Bruges.

We knew it would be busy, so glad we had booked in advance. Very good service and great food. There was too much for most of us to eat, which is much better than not having enough. We will be back the next time we visit Bruges.

We ate here on our last night in Bruges as a group of 4. Fantastic food, huge portions! Felt welcome and attended to straight away. The couple that run it were lovely. The decor is intriguing and brilliant! It's a small restaurant but that's what gives it its character. Would definitely go back!

Pro Deo was an amazing little restaurant in Brugge that my wife and I visited on our last night in Belgium. The service was top notch and very attentive and warm, while the food was superb! Highly recommend pro Deo to anyone visiting Brugge! The moules frites were amazing :)

We were a group of six on a hen weekend and had a brilliant time at the restaurant. Nathalie and her husband are friendly and welcoming and the food was excellent and very generous. We all agreed we would happily go back on another trip to Bruges. Good atmosphere in the restaurant. A real find.

We read the reviews beforehand and were not disappointed. Nathalie and her husband must have worked extremely hard to get the positive reviews they get and deserve all the success. We were very fortunate to get in as someone had just cancelled and were immediately made to feel very welcome - even if my slightly sun burnt head did cause... More

Took my wife here for her 50th birthday. It wasnt fancy but very athmospheric. Just felt Flemish to us and of course test is plenty of Belgian people in there. Great food, mussels of course, Flemish beef stew etc. We would highly recommend this place. If you are really brave, try the eels...

Even without a reservation, we were welcomed to this very nice place. The food is delicious and the portions are more than generous. The place is decorated in such beautiful manner so it looks timeless. We strongly recommend to visit this place even though you have to walk a few minutes from the city center.
