We found the place just by walking by, no regrets! Our host - young lady - was super friendly, her (she made it) lentil soup was amazing. We wanted to have "moules", which were jumbo portions! Anytime happy to go back!

We had a late lunch here today after I googled 'best Flemmish stew' and this restaurant came up high on the list. I was not disappointed - the lovely tender meat and the thick unctuous gravy was superb. The husband had mussels which were huge and the liquor in which they were cooked was delicious. We were glad to be... More

It's mystifying, sometimes, how people can have such different experiences of the same venue. Best food in Bruges? I've had amazing food in Bruges, but not here. We booked a table for 8 at the Habit about a week in advance. When we arrived, the waiter said she had the booking, but her colleague had accidentally given the table away... More

My husband and I went on Christmas Eve. We ordered the all you can eat ribs. We were sitting outside the kitchen. The ribs were put in the microwave and later taken out only to see the chef slice open the plastic wrapper and proceed to put them on a place. The reason i think it was all you can... More
