We were on holiday In Bruges to celebrate my forthcoming 50th birthday and discovered this love;y and quaint restaurant. I had the ribs and my partner had the Flemish Stew which she proclaimed as the best stew she'd ever had which is an absolute compliment from her. The restaurant is deceiving and has much more depth and atmoshere than it... More

To our dismay due nearing Armistice Day our target restaurant De Bottelier was closed, which in turn led us -- by our noses -- to a side-street uncovering the charming Habit. We had the cheese-filled creamy fish stew and all-you-can-eat ribs with a variety of different beers. In one word: Fantastic. The seasoning on the tender ribs was delicious and... More

This little restaurant was very quaint and welcoming. I could only give the food a 3 rating for these reasons: Cons-the filet mignon was tough which you would not expect from this cut of meat, the Merlot house wine we ordered by the glass was either a very cheap wine or going bad or was opened too long. Pros: the... More

We stumbled upon this quaint little restaurant on the first night of our trip. The waitress was friendly and helpful recommending the mussels which myself and my boyfriend both ordered. We were not disappointed! The dish was delicious and the portions were very generous. When we left we were even given a bar of dark Belgium chocolate which was a... More

Very nice little restaurant, amazing decoration. All you can eat ribs are good but not amazing however the pumpkin soup was probably the best soup i've ever tasted! Great place for lunch.

Cosy pub-like restaurant with friendly staff and hearty Flemish specialties tucked in an alley just a couple minutes away from Bruges centre. We ordered the ribs and bread with garlic butter. Very reasonable prices. Next time I will try to Flemish stew!

A lovely little restaurant with a good mix of items on the menu. The restaurant is family run, very competitively priced and the food was very good. Decor is rather random, but this adds to the atmosphere within the small restaurant. Service was excellent and if/when we return to Bruges we won't hesitate to return to here.

My wife and I stopped in for a quick lunch after reading some positive reviews. The restaurant is run by a husband and wife who do all the cooking and serving in a cozy cottage/pub setting. A small but good beer list, lots of Leffe varieties and a varying Trappist selection (Westmalle while we were there.) Very good beef stew... More
