A crooked, warm, charming night.

Me and my boyfriend booked a table here after struggling to find hidden gems in Bruges because of the amount of tourist resturants. We arrived early evening and were greeted by the most smiley warm woman at the bar, I'm sure she owned it or was the manager. We took a look at the wine menu and she... read more

We booked a table here for the Sunday night we arrived in Brugge as we read about the live music. We were so glad we did. The tiny little place was fabulous, really cosy with great service, food and wine. the music. We ate Tapas the first night...and returned for more on the second night of our 3 night stay.... More

Est is one of the best winebars I have visited. It is cosy and there is a good selection of wines plus a few beers. My wife and I had dinner and can recommend the food. The couple who run Est are marvellous, as are all of the staff. We were there on a Sunday evening since we had heard... More

This place is small but welcoming. The wine was great and there is food, but that plays a secondary role to the wine. We had a meat/ cheese platter with breads and it did the trick in soaking up the lovely wine. There was live music too, great fun (& nice staff).

We stopped by here on a Sunday evening after dinner for a drink (though they did food too), drawn in by the cosy atmosphere and the sounds of live jazz. This characterful bar was small and clearly popular, but we were warmly welcomed in to the last free table, and enjoyed half an hour or so of excellent music before... More

This tiny wine bar is very small and cozy. They have a very nice wine selection, as well as beer. The food is excellent, freshly made and perfectly combined. The service is a little slow, because the bar is always full and fod is made on the moment. Totally worth the wait, and pretty cheap. The staff is very kind... More

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
