Description: Reliva serves our customers honest seafood and meat with as much bio ingredients that are available on the market. Some vegetarian and veganistic dishes are prepared with the most care. Also we take good care of "lactose" and "gluten" free meals. Just ask our advice.The wines are advised per dish and can be ordered by the glass - a quite unique feature.As our guest we welcome you with a smile and deliver a friendly service. When the weather allows it, we serve on our nice and sunny terrace that has a unique view on both the Sint-Salvator Cathedral and the church of Our lady.

“Friendly staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

The staff was very friendly, and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was good, though I would not call it great, and some of the dishes was a bit to small.

Enjoyed one of my best meals ever here. The menu very helpfully indicated gluten and lactose free options. A really lovely evening.

“First class food, lovely terrace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We came here after a morning's sightseeing and were lucky enough to score a table on the terrace on a sunny day. And an oasis of loveliness and super fresh, tasty food it proved to be. We has gorgeous salads with a glass of wine whilst the children opted for spaghetti. The owner is passionate about local produce and authenticity, so only start that conversation if you have plenty of time!

“An authentic Bruges experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Avoid the tourist traps and try a meal at this delightful family run restaurant instead. The place is quaint and inviting, with a lovely private patio. Service is friendly and relaxed while being quite professional at the same time. The menu is somewhat limited but has fish, meat, vegetarian and vegan options. They can run out of menu offerings, however. Wine pairings are suggested for each meal. Food is delicious and well prepared-somewhat simple but with the freshest of ingredients. Wines by the glass are a bargain at 5E but the starter salad was a bit pricey at 18E (very fresh and tasty!). All in all, we had a most enjoyable evening.

“Perfect Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Just off a cruise ship for one day in Bruges, spotted Reliva on Trip Advisor and booked for a Saturday lunch. Reliva is off the main tourist drag so is quite different to many of the more touristy places offering the usual moules and frites. Down a back street with a more limited menu that caters for both meat eaters and the extremes of vegetarianism. It was a nice sunny day and we sat outside in the pretty courtyard. Excellent service from the waiters who turned out to be the boyfriend and mother of the 23 year old female chef, trained at three Michelin restaurants and now running her own show. We started with two mixed platters, one of cured hams and the other of a cheese selection, followed by turbot with asparagus and a chocolate dessert made with avocado, quite unusual but delicious. Not the cheapest place but certainly one to return to one day.
