Six of us "opened" the restaurant for the evening. Service was slow probably because they were still setting up tables. Food was good, beer was great and reasonably priced (any beer seems to be good in Belgium). The only mishap was the server spilling an entire beer on our friend. The odd part was the nonchalance about drying her off.... More

Good serves of food but the service was average with the waitresses not all that friendly. At times we had to get the waitresses attention to get a drink. The menu was diverse but there was no real theme or identity to it. You could get a lovely pasta or even a Mexican meal down to seafood or even a... More

We went here on a dinner date while in Bruges and we were not disappointed. Plenty of delicious options on the menu to enjoy. The atmosphere and ambience was also worth the visit. Definitely call to make reservations though, even on a weekday .

Despite being slightly outside of the major tourist thoroughfare by 10 minutes or so (still very much a tourist area) it can still be pretty busy. It is in a convenient location. The food was very tasty, I was a fan of the atmosphere, drinks were relatively inexpensive, and the staff were all very attentive and helpful. I ate the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the tour guide from Legends of Bruges walking tour. It offers fine dining at an appropriate price. We paid €85 (tip not included) for 1 starter, 2 dinners and 2 deserts, along with 4 drinks. This is more than we usually pay at a restaurant but the meals were some of the best... More

My wife and I are staying in Bruges for a week. We were recommended Toms Diner by locals and we were not disappointed. Not only does it provide a la cart food but also tapas. They were so friendly and helpful, the food was delicious. I had asparagus and smoked salmon as a starter followed by sea bass. My wife... More

We were recommended by our hotel to visit this restaurant- however we hadn't realised just how popular it was! We went along on the Friday evening to have a meal, but they were fully booked! However, we did manage to book the last table for Saturday night at 6 pm - and we were very pleased we did! The service... More
