Our server was super friendly and really helpful when we were choosing what to have (he was from Bruge but spoke English with an irish twang!). Cannot stress enough how good he was. Very professional. The food was ok and seeing the open barbecue was very impressive too. What really let our experience down however, was that it took over... More

Very nice grill restaurant, open fire. All dishes are awesome, freshly cooked in the grill near you. Size of dishes is more then you could expect, enjoy!

The restaurant is in a small area of pedestrian traffic near the Markt of Bruges. There is limited seating outside but is a good place to people watch and relax. Their specialty is a Belgium style barbecue of meats and ribs.

My husband and I just did a 10-day trip around Europe... We spent 3 days in Bruges and did our homework on where to eat (we are both picky). This was, by far, the best meal we both had during the entire trip. Just bravo all around. You cannot go wrong with this phenomenal place!

Really good restaurant located near the Minnewater. There's an open grille in the restaurant so it can get a bit warm in the summer, so if you can, ask for a table outside. The steaks and mixed grilles are amazing. Good selection of Whisky too. Make sure you book as it can get very busy. The only downside is when... More

Fun place. Owner (Karl) designed the wood-fired grill, and it works well, adds ambiance, and makes the place smell great. We both had the mixed grill and it was well worth it. Met the family that ow s the place and had a great time.

Excellent service and quality/quantity of food at this small indoor/outdoor restaurant. Grill located right in front of the restaurant and you can watch the expert chef doing his thing. Vegetable soup and fish soup both excellent as well as escargot.

We have returned once again to our favorite restaurant in Brugges. A tiny restaurant full of locals which has got to tell you something. We have been coming here for 6 or. 7 years and it still as good as ever. Karl cooking the steaks chateaubriand and salmon on his wonderful log fire before your eyes and the guys and... More

We went everywhere trying to find something to eat for our third and final night. Being bored with most restaurants having the same menu we wanted something different and came across De Wijngaert. We both really fancied mixed meat kebab or mixed fish kebab. The restaurant hasn't got white table clothes but it is authentic. Every order is accompanied with... More
