Our daughter and her husband ate here when they visited Bruges and highly recommended this restaurant. We understood ahead of time that the menu was very limited and the reasons why. Fortunately, we liked everything being offered that day. They explained to us why they serve the beef rare and how they work hard at getting fresh produce and inventing... More

Great food, great service, fantastic value for money. I really recommend the Portuguese wine (sapeira - I think) its only 25 EUR a bottle and incredibly delicious.

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
