Bully unkind waiters, while the food was really expensive and not very good. In the very centre of Bruges you expect really more.

This is the place you definitely want to avoid if you don’t want to be ripped off!!! They will charge you twice and do it on purpose!!!

Disgusting rude service. Greeted like we were an inconvenience within an empty restaurant (now we know why it was empty) another group of customers arrived to the same treatment. The worst service we’ve ever received. We decided to leave & spend our money elsewhere in...the square. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!More

For €8.50 you cannot complain! Orange juice, coffee, fried eggs, bacon, bread rolls and a croissant! All well cooked and tasty. Went back twice. For a breakfast on the square, you can't go wrong.

When we were greeted the waiter was very flustered and said choose your seat he was a bit blunt. We came here for breakfast my husband asked if he could change the croissant and bread rolls for something else he said no it’s all in!...not very accommodating and dam right rude. When breakfast came we got 2 undercooked eggs literally the smallest slither of bacon if you had a piece of bacon cut it and cut it again that’s what was delivered on the plate it was diabolical for €8 each! We did get orange juice the croissants were fresh tho.More

Three of us called in last Wednesday around 8.30. My friend has given a kidney to her son and needs to drink a lot of water. My husband who was with us ate the mussels and we were drinking hot chocolate. My friend asked for...a glass of tap water and as we were told by the Hotel that we were staying in, that we should not pay in a restaurant for tap water in Bruges we explained this. We had eaten in other restaurants in the City with no problem as to being given tap water. The waiters became very aggressive when my friend explained this, and my husband stood up as we were shocked by the very aggressive stance over a simple glass of water. He is 71 and was pushed into the street backwards off the outside decking along with the table containing the Moules. He was knocked out and we called the Police and an ambulance. He was taken to the hospital and was later released very shaken, as we all were. The consequences of their actions against an elderly person could have been very grave. We all travel a lot and have visited Bruges many,many times and have never anywhere encountered this kind of behaviour. Having read previous reviews of this restaurant regarding the staff it appears that they do not accept criticism or complaints and are a blight on the City.More

Stopped for coffee with friends. Ordered 4 x Americanos with warm milk - instead of 14 Euros bill was 20 Euros - reason given by arrogant waiter Dominique was that there was a supplement for the milk - in an Americano!! Rubbish places like this...should be put out of business. Small money issue, big attitude problem.More

We came to La Belle Vue on our first evening in Bruge and enjoyed it so much we came back for the second night. The service is very good with friendly staff who are happy to help, the food is excellent (our party had mussels,...steak and Flemish stew) and the surrounding are lovely particularly if you sit on the veranda. Very enjoyable visit and recommend you try it for yourself.More

Totally shocked by some of the negative reviews about this cafe - my husband and I came here every single morning for a coffee during our recent stay and quite often again in the afternoon / early evening. It was a lovely place to sit...and people watch whilst enjoying a fresh coffee. The service was excellent and very friendly too. We had the same waiter every morning who not only remembered how we each liked our coffee but took the trouble to ask what our plans were for the day. He was a mine of information for the local area and gave us lots of advice of places to visit so imagine my surprise when I saw that someone has posted a picture of him on here saying that he was the rudest man in Bruges!!More

My family first visited this restaurant 3 years ago... We ended up eating there nearly every evening... We returned to Bruges last week and of course had to go back for a meal... ... We were not disappointed!!! Miguel the waiter with a sensational dry...sense of humour even remembered us!! What can I say, we ate there virtually every day again... If you love mussels, this is the place to go!!! We will definitely be going back, hopefully sooner rather than later! Great place... try it everyone!!!More

A cool night so we sat inside. The servers were not enthusiastic and there is good reason for that. The food was uninteresting and very very overpriced!

We came across this place on our first night in Bruges. Service was good and we were lucky enough to get a good seat outside with a lovely view across the Grand Place. I ordered chicken and my husband ordered a steak and we both...really enjoyed it. However, my stepson ordered mussels in a creamy sauce and there was definitely no sauce with it, what there was was a watery fluid which he didn't like. Given the cost of eating here compared to going back a few street you expect a good level of food so this was disappointing.More

The service was bad, the waiters were rude. On top of that the food was expensive and nothing amazing, very much a tourist trap. Don’t recommend.
