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

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.

Wow is the word that comes to mind for this restaurant. Everything was perfect. They do a drink called the "Maison" that is out of this world. . .and then the food is fabulous. I had the coq au vin which was so good--really the best I have ever had. It was artfully displayed and tasted even better. The chicken... More

Is there such thing as being over creative? In our opinion - yes. The service was very good, the food was very fresh and very well presented, the taste - maybe we did not get it, interesting to say the best... I don't know, the restaurant was full and it looked like people enjoyed their food, this is the reason... More

Kok au Vin is in an un-pretentious side street about 10 mins walk from the Markt. We enjoyed an excellent lunch - not cheap but well worth the effort of locating the restaurant.

We wanted a restaurant that's slightly different and this did not fail to disappoint. An infusion of mango and lamb starters was brilliant; the veal mains was tasty as well. Our waiter was very friendly and was happy to chat to us for a while about his time in London.

Friendly service and GREAT food. We had the scallops (Normandy) and Kok au Vin and both dishes were incredible. Suggested wines were reasonably priced and paired well with the meals.

Gourmet & delicious food. Helpful staff. Great atmosphere Expensive but really nice. Portions are small, but really tasty. Try it, but only if not so hungry!

The signature dish Coq au vin was great, melts in your mouth. The hamburger also very tasty, but rather steeply priced at 24 euro we thought. The chocolate dessert was heavenly. Good service.
