They do earn their three stars. Building and garden are grand too. The langosta/raspberry/beetroot dish was the biggest surprise. Fantastic and something not comparable to anything we had ever eaten before.

We had a lunch in Hertog Jan on a sunny day, and I must say, this really is one of the new TOP restaurants in Belgium

The Mr & I tried getting reservations at 3-Michelin Star Hertog Jan, for a Saturday, over 2 months in advance but they were completely booked - if you're seeking a weekend treat, you'll want to book right away! However all was not lost as we were fortunate enough to be arriving in Bruges on a Friday afternoon so we were... More

I waited a lot of this restaurant, took a tasting menu of 8 dishes. Amuse bouches were just amazing, pieces of art. Therefore I was slightly disappointed when the first dish arrived. There was just a funky taste in it that our table just didn't like. 2nd dish was better but still not amazing. But it got better from that... More

My husband and I dined at Hertog Jan on the Saturday of Easter Weekend – April 2015. The restaurant looks modern and smart from the outside with “star wars doors” (glass sliding doors that open as you walk up to them) – very cool. Inside, the dining space is large and very spacious. Tables are very well spaced apart. A... More

The new restaurant of Hertog Jan is really exclusive as they want to produce all the vegetable for themselves. The service is first ranking for the outstanding menu. At the end of the dinner they showed us the kitchen wich was a nice combination of a protected old building with the contemporrary requirements.

This was my first visit to the new location of Hertog Jan after several visits to the old location. I saw the restaurant grow from * to ** and then *** Michelin. Well, chef Gert Mangeleer and maitre d'hôtel Joachim Boudens upped the ante even a little more. The restaurant is now widely considered to be in the top 50... More

On February 5th had dinner at Hertog Jan. Probably not thé very best dining experience we ever had but definitely one of the best. The restaurant is located in a very nice renewed buiding and is a rather big place (restaurant, kitchen and garden). Particularly the restaurant itself is a pretty large space due to which one will not necessarily... More
