Another fantastic evening in the Habit. I recomand as a starter the croquettes ( my favorite are the cheese ones) followed by the ribs (eat as much as you can) + chips and the chocolate mousse is just amazing. The atmosphere is very welcoming, the service is very friendly. You won't regret this choice.

A cold evening of December, after a long business meeting day... Found the spot in a little lovely walking street, in the core center of the city. Boss is welcoming us with a large smile, and each of the dinner guests is entitled to an individual handshake. The frame is very well-to-do, warm, decorated with a Flemish typical decoration. Service... More

Consistently good food, friendly service and great atmosphere. My number one place in Brugge. Its also the only venue that serves Evian, Badoit and my local favourite beer, Paljas.

We went here as Ribs and beer was fully booked, and they also do unlimited ribs. I had the 3 course unlimited ribs menu. The cheese starter was delicious, the ribs had great flavour but sadly did not fall off the bone. The chocolate mouse was divine.

We have visited Brugge many times and have eaten in lots of different restaurants. We called into here by chance because not only does it look wonderful from the outside but the food and service were excellent. We both chose the ribs as it's something that we don't find on the menu in England where we live, and like to... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and were certainly not disappointed. Great cosy atmosphere, a large choice on the menu and all staff were very friendly and welcoming. Especially recommended for small families as the owners went the extra mile to make the little one comfortable.

We thought we'd struggle to find somewhere good to eat in Bruges on a Saturday night without booking in advance, but we stumbled across The Habit & thought we'd give it a try. There's loads of choice on the menu and special offers on certain 3-course combinations. I had the meatballs with chips and my boyfriend had a beef stew... More
