“Great value, service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Definitely the best restaurant we found in Bruges. Great fixed price menus, with very good food. Between us we tried the steak, ribs (all you can eat) and pasta fixed price menus. We loved it so much we went back another evening. Attentive service and nice location. A little background music would be nice, though.
Highly recommended.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Came here for our first night as we were late getting to Brugge and it was very close to the hotel. We booked just the day before, got there on time and found a delightful cellar restaurant. We had three great meals and one ok meal, that said I have seldom had decent steak when eating out. Service was fine, beer menu was great and the atmosphere great. We felt we were being rushed towards the end as a number of people were coming in to eat as one group and the tables set for them were not enough. That said, we were fine with this as we wanted to get out and explore the bars of Brugge. Would go again and feel happy in recommending this to others.

“Fantastic food at a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

We we're staying just a short walk down the road and spotted De Beirbistro whilst strolling along. The first thing that took our eye was the extensive beer menu, which is a delight. The waiters are knowledgeable and happy to advise which beers to try. The Food was delicious, we both had the steak set menu (€22) which served up a large, pefectly cooked sumptuous piece of steak with large portions of fresh side salad and chips. The starter and dessert were also excellent, however the set menu dessert was limited to just ice cream based alternatives. The other food offerings on the menu looked excellent, with many beer finished dishes. Would definitely visit again!

“superb meal(and beers) away from the tourist hordes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Found this place in "Around Bruges in 80 beers" and decided to give it a go after not being able to get a table in Cambrinus.I'd called in earlier that day for a quiet beer whilst my wife was shopping and I was the only one in at teatime.Later on we were the only ones in(monday nights in november must be their quiet night) and no-one else had arrived by the time we left.That was their loss however as we had a superb meal(excellent steak for 17 euros) with enough food for about 4 people.Belgium can certainly rival the States when it comes to portion size!Prior to the main course we shared a plate of house beer bread topped with cheese.Absolutely superb.The menu seemed to be mostly pizza and pasta dishes but there were a few other choices such as the steaks we had.They also have a comprehensive beer menu and my wifes eyes lit up when she saw they had Kasteel Rouge on the list.The staff(I think they were the owners)were really friendly and helpful.All in all this was a great dining and drinking experience and it set us up nicely for a few more beers in this superb city.We'll certainly call in again on our next visit to Bruges
