This gem of a restaurant was recommended by our hotel. My wife and i were welcomed into this charming restaurant by our hostess and her 10 year old, charming daughter. In a restored old house in Bruges, you felt like a guest at someone's home. The menus was excellent, the food terrific and the warmth of the experience is with... More

The place is picture perfect and one of my go to places in Bruges. It seems like everything comes together, romance, perfect food and wine pairings and just a great atmosphere. What my favorite restaurant needs to be. Brava!

What a great place to have a meal! It is a family business and I mean really a family business as the beautiful young daughter served us at one point; brilliant. That said the food was very good and there was a number of meat dishes as well as fish. We thought we knew a few gins but the local... More

My wife and I dined here while in Bruges. The restaurant is quite small, and seats about 18 diners. The owners are the chef and his wife who serve the customers. They specialize in sea food essentially. The food was delicious. Service was attentive and pleasant. It was an extremely enjoyable evening and I can heartily recommend coming here for... More

This was easily the finest meal I ate in Brugge. Very small..20 seats. I had lamb for my main & it was perfectly prepared. I would rate these chops as excellent. Others enjoyed hen, mussels & sole. Everyone wants to go back for more. Family operated with mother offering service, father as chef and adorable young daughter helping until her... More

Everything about this small restaurant was excellent: the food (we chose the a la carde menu), the setting, the service. We would definitely visit again!

We were recommended the Restaurant Couvert by staff at the hotel in which we were staying. It was only a short walk away so was very convenient. The owner was very welcoming and friendly and the restaurant was small and well appointed. We chose the 4/5 course menu which was accompanied by different wines which were described by the owner....

Visited the restaurant for dinner. Although it is a small family restaurant, the quality of the service and food is top notch! Will definitely pay a visit when I'll return to Bruges!

We ate here on our final night in Bruges. Our gracious host for the evening was happy to review the menu with us and made us feel very welcome! We chose the wine paired with the set menu and were not disappointed. Well paced evening with wonderful dining selections and delicious wine. A cozy and intimate bistro and we enjoyed... More
