Excellent Value For Money. Went for an evening meal last night, read some reviews and went with mixed feelings ? But we had a lovely experience, really can't fault it. We both enjoyed everything about our evening. A relaxed atmosphere, the whole experience was brilliant. And to finish off very reasonably priced. Thankyou so much. The one down side was... More

Visited first in 2013 and again in March 2017. Advisable to book as its very small to ensure your meal. Great value, lovely staff, beautiful decor and location. Not to be missed. I had the salmon and my husband had trout. Really tasty.

This is a small restaurant, and you normally have to book in advance. We tried the local specialities of Flemish beef and duck. The meat was tender and the sauces delicious. Excellent service and ambience.

After two days of not very good food in Bruges, we stumbled across Gruutehouse Hof by sheer chance. I am so glad we did. The atmosphere was lovely, Service attentive and friendly but not pushy or over the top. Food was great, the Flemish Stew is amazing and the apple pie to die for, all at a reasonable price, especially... More

A stones throw away from the biggest tourist traps we came across this place by chance and were tempted in by the 3 course set menu which offered excellent value. We were not disappointed and both had the delicious (carot) soup of the day, chicken and profiteroles. The gauze beer was delicious and my partner enjoyed the house white wine.... More

Walked by so many times but this trip took the chance to nip in for supper and so glad we did. A charming and intimate feel inside, cosy and a lovely mix of clientele both tourists and locals. We were super lucky I think having just walked in and got an unreserved table as during our sitting plenty of people... More

4 of us visited Gruuthuse Hof at the weekend and had a brilliant night. We had read reviews on here and the sassy reactions by the manager made us want to visit all the more :) We walked in and booked earlier in the day and when we turned up later we were warmly greeted and seated. The place is... More

Lovely character filled restaurant. Small capacity so I'd recommend booking. We found by walking around and turned up, earliest they had was an hour wait. Left our name and returned back. I went for the set tourist menu, which catered fine for me as a vegetarian. Felt like fine dining on a budget. Soup, Quiche and dessert. Loved that they... More
