The best mussels in Bruges

This has probably the best moules frites we had in Belgium and it's famous for it. It's not the most atmospheric or picturesque restaurant in Bruges, but it's well worth it for the food.

Although they were busy, we managed to get a table and I'm so glad we did! We started with a pre-dinner cocktail called The Kiss. A bit expensive (8) but delicious. We had mussels and were very impressed with the portion size. Very friendly service!

Make sure you book in advance. The walk in approach won't do you any good. Go for the tables on he 1st floor -spacious and quieter. And of course ask for mussels! They are gorgeous and served with generous servings of fries.

We had dinner here with friends, including teenagers, at the recommendation of our hotel. Easily located near the Markt Square & they were able to seat us immediately on a Friday evening. Several people in our group ordered mussels which they said were very good & fresh. Food overall was very good. Service was prompt & friendly & the prices... More

We went here as we asked young woman in the hotel best place to eat mussels and fish and she said her and her friends and family always go here. Interesting as it's so close to main squares, i would have avoided it otherwise. What a mistake that would have been. We had a superb meal. Lobsters were incredible. Great... More

Had the mussels with ginger and corriander. It was fantastic. Lots of flavour and spice. Wine selection needs some work but I would definitely come back.

As the Belgium couple on the next table (regulars at the restaurant) pointed out, Belgians... More

There are dozens of places to have modules and frites in Bruges, but this must be one of the best. There are several different preparations, but I'm sure they are all great. The menu includes lots of other dishes, but for our one dinner in Bruges, this was a special experience. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending this restaurant for an... More

Day two of our visit to Brugge and I was determined to get my Moules Frites. And I was determined to do it in a place frequented by locals, not rowdy tourists. Breydel de Coninck was just the place. It’s a heavily seafood-oriented restaurant (and advertises itself as “the mussel and lobster restaurant with the best reputation in Bruges”) with... More
