As the name suggests they serve ribs - some really nice ribs at that and beer! When we booked up 4 weeks in advance and they only had 3 tables left! Upon entering we were met by a very cautious waiter who showed us to our table. The restaurant was a little out the way from the main setting in... More

What more can I say that isn't already in the reviews. I emailed Peter to reserve, and he managed to squeeze us in no problem. Food was delicious, and the ribs were melt in the mouth gorgeous. All you can eat??? One is plenty! Too delicious to say no, though :-)

The ribs were in fact lovely and all you can eat. The reason for 4 rather than 5 stars was the abrupt welcome. We were 10 mins early for our booking and almost told to go away. There's nowhere to wait in the restaurant as it's a narrow space and it was raining outside. We were then pointed to a... More

Best ribs I've ever tasted... The portions are huge, The beer was amazing, the prices were so reasonable and staff were so helpful! There were 9 of us, so quite a big group.. And no-one had a bad word to say about the place!... Not even the poor waitress when we decided shots were needed at the end of dinner!... More

We tried to go here and had to walk all the way there to discover it was closed! At the very least a note on here would have been helpful, even the hotel staff recommended we try it. Would still consider giving it a go next time, but will call first!!

Hi, I am sorry you had to walk up to us to find out we were closed. But it was mentioned on our website and there WAS a sign at the door telling in both Flemish and English that we were closed for the day. We are open 7/7 but in January and February we need some days of do... More

Dined here early December 2014 when we came to Bruges for the Christmas markets. Essential to book before (we did by email and received a prompt reply). Had dined here once before in December 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were not disappointed this time either! Superb food - best ribs I have ever tasted - The slow cooked were... More

We booked in advance for a Monday night in January and there was only two tables left. I would think that getting in without a booking is very difficult. The reason being that this is an excellent restaurant serving some of the best ribs my wife and I have ever eaten - and we've eaten a lot of ribs down... More

I ate here with a friend while on a weekend away to Bruges. I couldn't recommend going here more. Definitely take it in when you visit Bruges. We ate there on a Friday night. We had booked ahead. I emailed one day in advance. I got a reply by email and text on Friday morning. I was able to respond... More

We'd read about this place and phoned on the off chance of a table. It is VERY popular! A no-show meant a table was available but only till 8.30pm and the later sitting - it was a mad dash across Bruges from our hotel but, wow, was it worth it!!! The steak was great, beer yummy - a varied list... More

If you are in Bruges visiting Ribs 'n Beer is a must. We booked on the day by phone which is recommended as it was fully booked in the evening. The food was great, ribs were cooked perfectly and you can have as many as you want. My wife is a veggie she enjoyed the food but obviously not a... More
