Where to eat on New Year's even in Bruges?

My boyfriend and I have just booked to go to Bruges for the New Year. We are really looking forward to it and are looking to book somewhere special for New Year's Eve, especially as one of us will also be celebrating a significant birthday.

We would like a restaurant with really good food, a lively atmosphere and quite central location - we are staying on Hoogstraat and would like to walk back to our hotel so we don't have to worry about getting taxis etc.

It would also be good to have a bit of information about New Year's Eve/New Year's Day in Bruges - are things generally open?

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer,

Hi Emily

Have a look at this thread below, it will give you a good starting point on restaurants and what goes on. If you have specific questions come back to the forum.

Hoogstraat is very central and the city is very small, you will not need to worry about a taxi.


This is worth a visit:


Shop and the Xmas market will be open on New Years Eve. New Years day will be quieter but things will be open.

Many thanks (also apologies for typo in my original question - mortified!)
