Nice place but the filet steak was tough

Went to this restaurant on our last night in Bruges. We ate in the patio which is very nice. The waiter suggested a Crozes-Hermitage wine which was very good. My companion ordered the bouillabaisse and I ordered the filet steak rare. She enjoyed her meal very much but my steak was tough and the... read more

My husband and I dined here because we saw it in the film "In Bruges" and thought it looked quite lovely. We didn't have a reservation but we arrived well before the dinner rush so we were seated right away. The interior is gorgeous and very romantic with dark wood and candlelight. We would have asked for the patio but... More

If you are looking for a romantic place to have dinner which serves excellent food - this is it. I had the lobster special and my husband had lamb. Both dishes were excellent, with creamy, but light sauces. They also have a great wine list. For dessert we had strawberries with ice cream. We ate in the beautiful courtyard and... More

Book well in advance for a tale in the terrace garden. Lovely romantic setting, friendly and helpful staff, fantastic food and although a bit on the pricey side, well worth the treat.

On a recent holiday to Bruges, we frequented Cafedraal every day we were there, as there was no pint being disappointed going elsewhere not quite as sublime. Both the setting, the menu and staff are superb - it is relatively expensive, however nothing will disappoint. I look forward to going back again one day.

Ignore the few negative reviews as this place does great food. Waiters are charming but busy. Outside area was delightful. A bit pricey and a little slow but when the wine and food is good - who cares! Make sure you book.

We were trying hard to find a good food restaurant in Brugges and the Cafedral was recommended by a local. It has a lovely outside area tucked away inside. Service was excellent as was the food the price was on the high side - we averaged $35euro a head 1 course and a bottle of wine between the 4 -... More

Booked this restaurant for my wife's birthday meal and wish I hadn't bothered. We turned up, were seated outside in the (admittedly very pretty) garden, and then were left there for 20 minutes. Eventually someone came over and gave us menus, but no drinks menu. So we sat. And sat. No water, no bread, nothing. Eventually I managed to track... More
