Arrived in Bruges on the 4th December 2015 and had booked to eat at Gruuthuse Hof for one night on the Saturday and aren't we glad we did. A charming small restaurant hidden away from the main Touristy area but well worth a visit. Staff and owner extremely helpful and friendly. The food was simple ( as all good is... More

This is a great restaurant - quite small...approx 30/40 covers. You can't book via the web and if you turn up on a off chance, there is a good chance it will be fully booked. It is always full. Service is great and the food is also good - my wife thinks the Mussels here are the best she has... More

Small cosy restaurant with lovely atmosphere. The staff are friendly and provide a good service even though the place is busy. Food was excellent and good value for money. We had a window table (advantage of booking?) and enjoyed watching the world go by as we enjoyed our meal and even a friendly chat with the proprietor.

Booked this restaurant on the recommendation of a tour guide. Although a cute little restaurant, we had been spoilt the previous evening by dining at Ribs n Beer where the steak was divine so this was a bit of a come down I'm afraid. It was also more expensive than Ribs n Beer for food that was nowhere near comparable,... More

Written by a true FOODY ... Just stick with your ribs and beer SIR !! Your definition of a good peace of meat is when it melts in you're mouth... maybe we should put our meat in vacuum bags with sulfide and leave it for a few days.... i'm sure you will be so happy then aah so tender....

Despite the name, the tourist menu was the right choice for us, as it was one of our first meals in Belgium. The service is also excellent and the restaurant itself is very inviting. I'd certainly go there again on my next trip to Bruges.

My fiancé and I walked down to Gruuthose Hof last night, we weren't hopeful we'd be able to get a table given we hadn't booked. However we were lucky enough to grab the last table, which happened to be right by the window with a beautiful view of the church. We went for the set menu and both had steak,... More

I tried to book online after reading about them on trip advisor but didn't receive confirmation, we found them when we arrived so I went in to check but they hadn't got the reservation. They managed to book us in for lunch next day and the owner gave us great service and the food was delicious! Definitely worth the wait!... More
