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

The first impression is of a friendly and stylish interior with warm and personable service. They had lovely plates. There was free bread with a delicious pâté to pick at when we sat down. There was then a pre stater with pork and apple, only small but it tasted great. The food we ordered had excellent bold flavour combinations reminding... More

There are a lot of restaurants in Brugge, some of them are touristy, some of them are expensive, and some of them are world class... this one is world class. On recommendation from our B&B host, we ate dinner here on our first night in town and where amazed by everything from the menu options, to wine selections, and service.... More

We found this restaurant via Tripadvisor and website recommendations after our initial picks were booked out. We phoned ahead on the day - they had a table free at 9.15pm and it was very busy when we arrived. I must say we had an excellent time and the food was of a very high standard. We eat at a lot...

We were excited to eat here and were not disappointed. Fantastic food, extremely tasty and cooked to perfection. Always surprising and inventive without ever being pretentious or complex simply for the sake of it. Good service and a friendly chef saying hello at the start of service. Definitely get the 5-course menu - its worth it to taste as much... More

We enjoyed the BIB Gourmand menu comprised of excellent dishes with a surprising touch. The staff were very friendly and the wine was of great quality.

great little restaurant away from the tourist area, but not a far walk from the center of the town. The food was outstanding and beautifully presented, the ambience very enjoyable, friendly staff, and all with very reasonable prices. I would reccommend this to anyone visiting Brugge - the food is top notch.

I think I was sitting next to the people on the latest comment (july 7) and understand now why they were discussing on whether to give a tip or not :-). We did not tip (you don't have to!) I think the food was not bad but .... I was expecting more. The taste can be improved. The waiter who... More

Thank you for your review. The last sentence might have been a little harsh, but it came due to what I read from his other comments on places in Bruges. And you are right, tipping is not necessary, but if the service is good, and you enjoy your meal it's a small gester that you do so. When going to... More

This was really a gastronomic highlight of our trip to Brugge/Bruges. Innovative, high class and worth every penny(I.e.. Cent) we paid for it. Only trouble was when we were to pay for the meal that the head waiter thought that it might be a good idea to tell us that the service charge wasn't included although the bill said it... More

Dear Vintherbottom, There is the question if you would like to give an additional tip or service, that choice is completely yours, so blackmail is a harsh word. We do mention that, NOT because we are "beggars", BUT because on our bill at the bottom there are alot of percentages (about taxes on food and drinks), and people who are... More

Wanting a good restaurant in Brugge this restaurant was recommended by another restaurant. The staff were excellent upon our arrival and explained the menu to us. We had the most wonderful meal and were happy with their suggestions for both food and wine. Would recommend if visiting Brugge.
