We needed a spot for a light lunch while wandering around Bruges, and happened upon Aquarel. Nice salad selection, and other non-standard items so many brassierries serve through Belgium. Waitress was very nice, and attentive, and we promptly ordered a nice house wine, and salads....More

Really pleasant meal here, in one of the slightly quieter squares in Bruges. The garlic shrimps were outstanding.

We had lunch at Aquarel with the family during our visit in Bruges. Location is nice in the middle of typical town square. We ordered "moules et frites" they were delicious. Service available and kind to suit our Request.

Whatever you do, don’t go there. The food was a joke. I had the Dover sole and got two tiny fish that wouldn’t be enough to feed a toddler, plus they were completely tasteless. Didn’t touch the pre-frozen chips. The tiny salad was edible thanks...More

My lunch in Aquarel Restaurant was just amazing. Very decent waiter took an order in his modest, Belgian way. Meal consists of completetly fresh ingredients with not very common decoration and receipes. Extremely pleasant experience!
