Ok, great spot to just watch people and food is good, although in the large scale of Bruges and the price it does not match expectations

Well, just decided to check if 2 stars of Tripadvisor are not too harsh. Conclusion: evaluation is very realistic. So, let's start. Ordered first dark beer, and then, literally in less than a minute, while the waiter was still at our table, changed my mind and asked for Hoegaarden. Immediate reaction of the caring personnel: Sorry, sir, too late: the... More

The location in the central square can’t be beaten, and the food was quite pleasant, if unspectacular. We enjoyed the fish soup, which though costly was worth the money, and the mussels were plentiful and well cooked. There aren’t enough waiters if the many tables are occupied, so if you’re looking for a quick bite, avoid this place if it... More

On a day trip we were told to avoid the square as too pricey Well, we ignored that and went here for lunch. The food was great, Flemish stew and superb fries, beer options very good and the service was excellent You have a great view across the square and it is very relaxing Would recommend

Thank you very much for the nice review. It is a pleasure to see that people who are satisfied also react. We have about 500 guests every day and only few react, usually those who are not satisfied. The fact that only 2 or 3 negative comments per week are posted is giving us the feeling that it is not... More

The only good thing is the location but 15 eu for a 1lt beer is to pay a lot for it. The food was expensive also and just ok. The service was also just ok. there is nothing that they do to make you feel good. They know that you are tired and hungry and they take advantage of it... More

We came (2 adults+child of 3.5 years old) at 16:15PM yesterday 15.05.2016. The waiter, a guy with bold head and a bird, directed us to sit in a place of eating as we were starving after long day. We sat. The waiter took his time and the other waiters didnt approach us. Than I asked for the menu and it... More

We went to Le Grand Cafe Belfort for dinner, and even though the setting looks good, the food and service certainly aren't!! We had the 19.50 3-course menu. Spup of the day was ok, but the main course (steak) was very dry and too peppery. Dessert again was ok,but the overall presentation and service can definitely be improved!! Personelle is... More

Considering its central position in the Grande Place, the Belfort turned out to be a great place to dine in the evening. In the centre of the restaurant there is a very warm inviting gas-generated fire which immediately makes one feel welcome when the outside temperature is less than ideal. I ordered a Dover sole and my wife chose an... More
