Very very nice place with very good food.

Service very friendly, fast and efficient. The food was very very good. It was a little noisy, because of a very large group.

2 couples enjoying a long weekend in Bruges, all of us foodies & looking forward to a reservation which was recommended. The food not at all thought through- strange mix of palette which did not work, tough & inedible beef cut- which, when sending the whole plate hardly touched back to the kitchen the brusque responses were only to question...

Mr/Mrs "Smileypotato", I thank you for your visit to our restaurant, which is not a classic restaurant but works with renewing combinations which have been tested and found to be good combinations after trying them out in our lunch menu. You are right, we did not give any apology since we didn't think your criticism was justified, just your personal... More

The Kok Au Vin was of the best meals we had in Belgium over a week. The Salmon gravlax amuse-bouche was so good I could have eaten it as both as a starter and as a main. Next came the strongest dish of the day, the Pork Belly and Sebass tartare appetizer, a truly divine creation that my wife and... More

Great staff, perfect food and a place sensitive to people who have to avoid gluten. Some GF bread, limited choice - but you can see this from the menu outside. Bjorn and the multi lingual staff were brilliant and we enjoyed our evening. €131 for 3 courses with an aperitif, wine and water plus coffee for 2 of us was... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel as typical Belgian food and good value for money. What a massive disappointment. The restaurant looked lovely from the outside and was close to the centre. We were greeted nicely and given a nice table. I'm afraid that was the best of it. The menu was severely limited with nothing I really... More

Dear Sallycoles, I'm sad to read your comments about the food, as you didn't even taste it. Your husband did like it I guess, he ate his own plate and most of yours. I tried to offer you a solution but you did not want anything else or more. You mention you don't like asparagus? Well, it is mentioned in... More

Presentation of all courses beautifully done. Our steak was perfect as was risotto. Lovely sauces and an unusual beet salad that was delicious. Despite some service mishaps, the Wait Staff handled corrections with grace. Lovely to eat where the Locals eat,.

Small chic restaurant close to the centre of Brugge. Classy in every way. We had wonderful langoustines and a wagu beef burger. Very tasty. Super desserts. Great service and bubbly atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Didn't think the meal was worth the money, we bought a bottle of wine, instead of leaving it on the table, she left it in the bucket on the bar, defintely would not go back, very dissapointed, don't paying a higher price for a meal if it is worth it.

We came here for lunch and it was marvellous. It's fashionably chic in terms of decor but still warm and the seating is comfy. We had a set menu which was very good. We tried to one back for another meal but it was closed on a Monday. We'd come back when in Bruges, for sure.
