“Lovely food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We arrived in Bruges on Thursday May 23 and had hoped to go to this restaurant that night - as I had read about it on Tripadvisor. However they were fully booked that night and the following one so we booked for the Saturday. The food did not disappoint. I had the brill and my boyfriend had the fillet steak. Both were delicious and reasonable priced. The waiters were nice and kept your wine topped up. The starter we wanted had sold out but they quickly recommended us another one which they allowed us to transfer from the set menu. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Bruges!

“Outstanding French food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Overall, Assiette Blanche is a superb restaurant. We had the 3 course set dinner for 35 Euro. The white asparagus starters were cooked just right as was our main courses of fish and veal. The free amuse bouche was too salty for me. The strawberry soup desert with cream was very good but not outstanding. The only reason I cannot give this or any Belgium restaurant 5 stars is that they all flat out refuse to serve you tap water. My only optilon was 6 Euros for a bottle which did not even fill the glass for the 4 of us. I travel all over the world and Belgium is the only country I have found that refuses to serve tap water upon request at every restaurant.

“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We found this french restaurant by chance wondering around the side streets off the Town Hall and Burg Square. We just managed to get a booking on the friday night. I cannot fault the service or the quality of food. The explanations for what we were given to eat were comprehensive but still understandable! The house wine was also good.
Compared with other restauarants we ate at over three days,(all of which I have to say were good) this was clearly the best value for money.

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The restaurant has a traditional french restaurant ambiance and the chef/owner has a classic french cooking style. The dining area is charming and the service was outstanding. The food was very good and we had a great experience. After our meal, the chef even welcomed us back into the kitchen and explained to us how he made the sauce for filet mignon (a traditional veal stock sauce that was truly amazing). I highly recommend the restaurant for a very nice meal in Bruges.
