We had lunch at Hertog Jan in Brugge. It was amazing!! The taste, presentation, and service, everything is great. I was so impressed. ブルージュにあるミシェラン三ツ星レストラン、ヘルトン・ヤン、とにかくお料理が素晴らしい!味もさることながら、プレゼンテーションが良い。キッチンを見せてくれたり、ハーブや野菜を育てているガーデンを見せてくれたり。スタッフは、皆若くて頑張ってる感があってとても好感の持てるサービス。まさに「そのためだけに旅行する価値のあるレストラン」でした

An evening at 3 star restaurant Hertog Jan is surely something special. We started our evening with a friendly welcome from a nice young lady who offered us a refreshing lemonade. We got the chance to go for a walk in the garden. An opportunity we took with both hands. How often can you enjoy a walk in the garden... More

I've eaten at dozens of Michelin starred restaurants and this easily ranks in my Top 5. From beginning to end this was an amazing dining experience. The tasting menu was a succession of fabulous dishes. Every dish was a delight with exceptional combinations of taste and texture. This was true 3-star cooking. Service throughout was knowledgeable, efficient and friendly with... More

Working our way through the top 100 restaurants in the world, this was a must try when travelling from Southern France to Belgium this summer. The location is a short drive outside of Bruges in a beautiful country setting. The building itself is über modern using lateral space, think The Cullens house from Twilight. The staff who looked very young... More

Hertog Jan was easily one of the finest meals I've ever eaten in my life, and was also a remarkable restaurant experience. Set in the countryside around Bruges, Hertog Jan is located in a beautifully modern take on a barn. The whole restaurant could be characterized as a refreshing mix between modern elegance and rustic charm. The meal began with... More

Dinner was a real disappointment. Slap dash service . Inexperienced waiting staff lead by a frequently absent floor manager who gave no guidance to the team. service was brasserie style with a lot of rough edges. Young and inexperienced staff on the whole. No menu provided- you are left to the mercy of the kitchen to decide on what they... More

The building itself offers only one view-- to the extensive garden from which many of the restaurant's vegetables, flowers, and spices are grown. I was ready to be wowed-- instead many of the pairings of wine (& beer!) and food were puzzling. The view and the service are the clue that you as guest better pay attention to them--they're here...

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
