Chic and elegant

Good food, good drinks and fancy people. To me is where the socialites from Kortrijk go. Nice environment and awesome decoration. But people is what makes a place, and unless I go with a large group of friends, it is not my thing.

vintage style café and bistro is one of the new places to be in Kortrijk. Reservations required. Very nice outside seating. Young/trendy audience. Good food - the classics.

This place is a bit hip with outdoor seating viewing the canal and one of the new bridges. We had a good meal of Dover sole and pork cheek stew ( a local favorite, and not those cheeks!). Would also recommend Omer beer. Need a reservation on Saturday nights. Convenient if you are on a boat.

Very nice restaurant with a warm atmosphere. Staff is very kind and welcoming. Excellent quality Belgian and French cuisine . After dinner we just moved from the restaurant area to the bar and had a great night out with our friends and colleagues. During summer, great terrace to enjoy drinks while looking over the river .
