“Breydel De Coninc is superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

A return visit, we have been dining here annually since 1980 something. The mussels here are the best in the province. They are fresh, perfectly prepared, and satisfying.
The service is professional and affable.
It is not a budget restaurant, to serve seafood of Breydel's character is labor intensive and the knowledge to perform at this level is not easy to attain. They have high quality meals and that is why we return.
Well done Breydel De Coninc, thank you.

“Very average - there are better places in Bruges”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Following the recommendation in the guidebook, we called on spec looking for moules. When I asked whether they had a starter without flour (I am coeliac) they said they couldn't guarantee there wasn't flour in any of their starters except the smoked salmon. I asked if it was possible to have a half portion of the main-course eel as a starter, but they said no, the eel was prepared in plastic vacuum packs, so they couldn't give me a half. And when we asked for a jug of tap water they said they only served bottled. All a bit cynical, and not what you expect at these prices. In fairness, the moules were good, and the chips were excellent, apparently twice-fried, but the attitude was poor, and I wouldn't go back.

“Excellent seafood restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, and we were not disappointed!
The restaurant had a very friendly atmosphere and also had an aquarium of tropical fish at the entrance.
The menu had a wide variety of seafood.
My husband chose the moule aphrodisiac which was quite spicy - but amazing! I had the monkfish, which was great as well.
A bit pricey, but would definitely go there again!

“Excellent seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is a great place for high quality seafood. Of course they have moules frites....prepared many different ways. I had the aphrodisiac, which were a little spicy, but there were plenty of choices. We also had oysters which were fresh and very delicious ..my husband had steak and he said it was great..
