I live in Bruges and was happy to see some more contemporary restaurants joining the local scene. Kok au Vin is definitely one of my favourites, offering innovative, Belgian-inspired, and high quality food in a modern setting. Definitely to be recommended for anyone who wants a nice evening out in Bruges!

This is a great restaurant, the food was superb but quite overpriced as our selections didn't fit in the set menu. Service was ok/good but not excellent, as the waiter actually asked for a tip even though they really need to be a little more organised (had to repeat our order, was brought bread twice in 5 min as they...

I definitely recommend this place. The food is really good and the service is professional. The bib gourmand, 3 courses menu for 35€, is a good value for money and especially for Bruges. We had a great moment!

A recommendation from our b&b led us to this restaurant; unfortunately they were completely booked for dinner during our 3-day stay in Bruges, but they had an opening for lunch. They offer a 3 course lunch for 25€ -- I had the fish, my husband chose the meat -- and we were very impressed. The quality of the food is... More

Great restaurant and service. Food is nicely presented like in a gastro restaurant, while portions are sufficient. Great wine selection as well!

Simple elegant, small menu, locally-sourced everything, tables of stylish locals make this an escape from the tourist madness around the rest of Bruges; we were lucky enough to be able to eat there (during the week) without a reservation

We discovered Kok au Vin on the internet, and walked over to have a look before reserving. It is a relatively small place, simple but modern and attractive. The menu is small, offering 3 choices for each of 3 courses. The food is modern in concept, artfully plated, and very well prepared. Some of the choices seemed odd on the... More

We made a booking here based on the good reviews that it has received. We were happy with our meals (3 courses for 35 euro which is a very good value). The food was artfully prepared, cooked well, and good quality. The desserts are amazing! The service is so-so. We sat there for around 10-15 minutes waiting for menus and... More

Ended up here by accident but were really pleased that we did. The food superbly presented and it was tempting to take a picture. The combinations of food are really interesting. My venison main was served with a few pieces curried popcorn! Very strange but really good. Pears & chocolate ice cream served with fennel. The John Dory was perfectly... More
