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

Five of us ate here on Friday night and it was a delightful evening. The quality of the food was exceptional. Some of us had lemon sole fillets to start, others had prawns and avocado, both starters were great. 4 of us had perfectly cooked steak and Janet had halibut all again very good. On the drinks front, carefully prepared... More

We got to our hotel late on Thursday (8:30), and the hotel suggested this restaurant. We were very surprised by the great quality that we really just lucked into with the last free table. We were so impressed that we made a reservation for Satyrday night too. The quality is very high, and maintained by a husband and wife team.... More

Small, stylishly decorated restaurant, very friendly owner? wife? , busy on the night we went and they were mostly upmarket tourists- irish/USA/English but some locals. Good napery, good-sized tables--can make a difference to the eating experience. There is a special 40 euros menu... More

Visited Couvert after asking our hotel concierge for a recommendation. Beautiful small restaurant with only 7-8 tables. Husband in the kitchen, wife with the guests. Fantastic atmosphere and great food. We went for a la carte, but they also have a nice chefs menu option. I had a brilliant rabbit stew, the portions are pretty big. The meat fell off... More

However I was not too keen where my table was located in the middle of the room which felt a little awkward. More importantly the food, lemon sole to start, lamb which was perfectly cooked followed by... More
