The restaurant was recommended by the hotel concierge. We were a large party with food allergies but they happily adapted the menu to meet our needs. Mentioning that our concierge sent us got us all a delicious banana orange cocktail which was a nice start to the meal. Would definitely recommend this little gem

As an entry there is fresh garlic bread and a nice cheese croquette. The spare ribs are all you can eat and very well seasoned.... More

We tried Chez Leon in Brussels and few other places in Bruges, but The Habit had the best food overall! Bread and butter was excellent and the prawns and soup that comes with the specials were fabulous. Beef stew and half chicken were also great. Spare ribs, however, were a bit salty. Of course, beers were also great!

This was recommended to us, and we were very pleased to enjoy local fare, in an intimate atmosphere, with lovely server, Ingrid! We had the Flemish Beef Stew and Flemish Chicken which were both awesome!
