Ate here on a recommendation from our hotel. The three course menu is excellent value for the quality of food that you are getting. A 5 minute walk away from the main square and the tourist driven restaurants, this is a refreshing change in Bruges, where the focus is on the food and not just getting tourists through the door....

I've been here twice, once december 2014, once januari 2015. Both times the food was really fantastic. The menu choices are very limited (typically 3 choices for each course), but changes frequently. First course and main course were really excellent and surprising for everyone in our group (7 people and 4 people). The place can be crowded, but there is... More

Superb food, in my opinion, absolutely worthy of a Michelin star (currently rated as 'Bib Gourmand'). Informal setting, allowing the food to speak for itself. We enjoyed an amazing array of complementary flavours. I had langoustines, followed by lamb and then cheese. My wife had pork cheek followed by skate and then rice pudding. These were cooked expertly. The set... More

This place was packed and noisy. Perfect for an informal evening out. You'd suspect the service would be bad in a place like this with the waiting staff running from table to table, but they managed pretty well. The best thing was the food. Unpretentious and delicious. And also reasonably priced. I'm coming back next i'm in Bruges.

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...
