Small restaurant as others have said with about 20 covers in a smallish room so quite close to other diners and most did end up talking to their neighbours. The music could be louder. We came here about 5 years ago, it was wonderful then...More

Quite an exclusive menu but excellent food wine and service. Probably only sits less than 25 people, so a bit on top of each other but lovely quiet location.

We were clever enough to ask at our brilliant hotel (The Pand) for recommendations for supper - Bruges is beautiful but very touristy so it's really worth asking local people for good places to eat or drink. The Couvert is just round the corner from...More

Thank you Trip Advisor. Fabulous restaurant. Modest, intimate, understated and absolute class. Best meal we’ve enjoyed for some time. Small (we counted 18 covers) family restaurant, the children(very discreetly) came down to say good night. Not huge menu but enough choice. Beautifully presented, impeccable service.....and...More

We enjoyed a very nice meal in a small family run business. Food was excellent and surroundings nice. Service started out a bit clinical but warmed up as the night progressed . Would eat there again and recommend.

They speak excellent English. Use WhatsApp and give them a call or get the concierge at your hotel to book for you. In fact, if you’re staying in Bruges, it’s best to get your concierge to book for you anyway. Do NOT just... More
