Freakin (Well-censorship) Bruges

So a restaurant with an aquarium inside is never a good sign. It is more or less like a girl that agrees to meet you for a coffee in the afternoon rather than a beer in the evening. However, if you know how to play your cards right you sip your cappuccino with the determination drawn on your face... read more

Price was aligned with what every other touristy place in Bruges/Ghent/Brussels was charging. Cute little place off the main square. Really filling - totally hit the spot!

By far the best in town for its mussels, french fries, tartare sauce, soles and tarbot. Carnivores will not be disappointed with the juicy steaks. Excellent as well. We enjoy our visits every time.

They reserved table for 4 in window for us on a horrible rainy evening. My husband gave everyone a laugh as he entered, as in taking off his coat, he put his phone on top of the lobster tank. Unfortunately no lid to tank!! Staff were megga efficient and charming, with a sense of humour. Although famous for its fish,... More

This was a very good restaurant, even though we had been warned not to go near the Market Square, the quality was excellent, I had the Mussels and they were fantastic! Its a little pricey, but nothing too bad. I would recommend.

This place was quite pricey, but all things told it wasn't that outrageous considering how crazy the prices were in Bruges overall. I was lured in by the smell and the inviting looking interior. I was seated in the smaller upstairs area, and while I didn't try the classic mussels the food I did get was very very good. It's... More

We had a lovely meal of moules, and a steak. There wasn't a lot of choice other than moules. The steak was cooked perfectly, But we felt that the price was a bit expensive. It as very near the market square so maybe that was reflected in the price.
