Stumbled across this little gem on a Sunday evening in Bruge. Live jazz permeated down the street. The bar/cafe was buzzing. My wife & I sat outside and enjoyed the music as we watched people milling about in the warm summer evening. When the music finished at 22:30 the jazz players came out and enjoyed a beer or two themselves.... More

This is a tiny wine bar and we got there quite early on a Sunday as we have been disappointed before on our trips to Bruges, either this place was so packed you couldn't get in or it has been closed. Bagged a small table by the door, our little dog and we were both warmly welcomed. They serve tapas... More

We were only in Bruges for 2 nights, but if we had been here longer we would have returned to Wijnbar Est. We stopped here after a trip to the Groeninge Museum and had a glass of wine at the bar to avoid a hail storm. This tiny place is charming and is a good place to stop if you... More

Small homely and welcoming wine bar with a large variety of hand-picked wines by the owners. Cheeses and charcuterie are also carefully chosen and were delicious. We had a bottle of New Zealand Pinot Noir as well as a dessert Madeira wine. The husband is in the kitchen and the lady hosts and helps with recommendations.

We first visited this wine bar over 10 years ago and a few years later returned to find it was no longer there. We were very disappointed. Anyway, after some searching on the internet we found that they had moved. Hurrah!! We have since visited several times and are never disappointed. On a Sunday evening there is live music and...

My husband and I recently stayed in Bruges and went here for dinner our first night as they have live music on Sundays. We couldn't have made a better choice. They have a fantastic selection of wines from around the world and a good selection of beers as well. We ordered several different small plates to share so we could... More

I found the wine selection by the glass to be really good and allowed me to try wines from regions I'm not familiar with. We had the raclette for dinner which was a fun experience. The lady who served us was so friendly and nice. A really welcoming place to visit.
