We visited de Buhne on our very first night in Bruges as we had read raving reviews of de Buhne. The restaurant is in a quiet lane. Inside too, the restaurant is quiet. We did not reserve a table. Ms. Ann welcomed us. As we usually do, we explained her about our strict vegetarian dietary preference. She assured us about... More

Having paged through lots of reviews on where to eat in Bruges we were beginning to lose the will to live, and just plucked this one which seemed to be reasonably priced and had good reviews. We were so thrilled that we chose Dr Buhne. The restaurant was small, simple but refined with a lovely ambience (despite the lack of... More

My husband and I had a really lovely anniversary meal here - it was so refreshing to have interesting vegetarian choices. The set menu is great value with essentially 4 courses, closer to a tasting menu really. The service was attentive without being overbearing and the range of languages our waitress (possibly the owner) spoke was impressive. Only real downsides... More

We were impressed with the vegetarian menu which displayed a good variety of fresh ingredients. Set menus vary from £27-£32-£42, and with four courses they were good value. Pastry for desert was delish. There are less than 10 tables, so booking is probably necessary. If you want a classy local feel then this is the place to go.

A small and quaint restaurant with the perfect service and wonderfully fresh food! The set menu is a surprise, but as we find out, a welcome one. The wait for food is there as everything is prepared fresh. A delightful experience. Perfect for a laid back leisurely meal!

Before the delicate airy complexity of the dessert, before the subtle and deeply satisfying main course, even before the textural mosaic of the starter, all the way at the amuse-bouche this was the absolute best meal that we have had in all of our time living in Belgium. The chef here clearly knows that true excellence begins in the mastery... More

We visited de Buhne on our last night in Bruges after reading some reviews on trip advisor. We went with high expectations, and they were met in every way. We had booked - as is the norm it seems in Bruges - and it is definitely advisable here due to the small amount of tables. The restaurant is open very... More

As non-meat eaters, we are quite used to having to settle for relatively mediocre food when we travel; our standards are pizza or pasta and salad. The meal we had at de Buhne was a world away from that - beautifully served, exquisitely prepared and all-round exceptional. The lady who served us seemed to be from a different, more genteel...

We had a beautiful evening meal from the vegetarian set menu in this tiny little quaint venue. The lady who served us was delightful and attentive. I wouldn't have taken my kids here as it was probably a little too formal and the quality of food would have been wasted on them. It was our favourite meal of the trip.

Tiny place, so booking is essential. The lady who runs front of house is very friendly and will happily advise the best beers to accompany your meal. The food itself is excellent, but prepared with care, so don't expect to be in & out in a hurry. Many thanks, I hope to visit again.
