Came recommended by our B&B host. Thought of giving it a try as we were hungry for local Belgium cuisine. We were welcomed with open arms, very friendly staff and awesome interior, so much to see in there, lots of memorabilia's. For the menu, it has something for everyone. On the first night I asked and was recommended the meatballs... More

Paul was amazing and looked after us so well, despite the place being so busy. The 'Hobbit' was recommended to us and is just over the road but it was closed so we opted for this place instead. We landed on our feet - it was great. Ribs are excellent.

Just got back from Bruge (June 17, 2015) and had diner at a restaurant called "The Habit". Kinda small, on a quiet street. A little hard to find, but glad we did. Paul was very accommodating. I had the Chicken in Wine Sauce and my girlfriend, who is a very light eater, planned to nibble off of my plate. Sometimes... More

My partner and I stumbled across this fantastic little bistro and so glad we did. We sat for a couple of hours whilst we had lunch and drank beer and it was just the perfect place to be. The food was the nicest we had in Bruges, my partner had the mixed grill and I had the coq au vin... More

So glad we found this small but perfectly formed restaurant whilst looking for somewhere both open on a Wednesday and away from the Markt. It is only a 5-10 minutes walk. Lovely cheerful welcome from warm hostess. We both had the special lamb cutlets which were both plentiful and very good indeed - served with a delicious honey dressed salad.... More

Just off the main square, I much enjoyed the Flemish stew, my wife found her meal quite to her taste liking as well, albeit not very busy it did eclipse a more expensive meal we had on the square. We are glad we gave it a try despite the less than attractive window display, our time spent was very worthwhile........ More
