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...

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
