"Den Heerd" means "the fireplace" and it is very cosy sitting near the burning fire! While we waited, we ordered a bottle of nice Spanish wine (around 30 euro) and received a small plate with some goodies. First we enjoyed a plate called spaghetti al vongola, carefully prepared and very tasty. Main course: perfectly baked brill, sort of small turbot;... More

Just had Christmas lunch. Four courses with wine and coffee, excellent food, congenial surroundings, and wonderful service at a very reasonable price. Would recommend to anyone

We visited with a family of 6 adults. Nice interior and beautiful garden/terrace in the back. Food and service was excellent. We made a reservation same evening for next month!

We went here with some customers for lunch. It is a nice restaurant in the city centre, with a calm and nice garden. we had a main, i went for the steak. Excellent meat, nice dressing. Only, for the beer, nrugse zot, they asked 5 euro, which is exaggerated. Therefore, 4/5 instead of 5/5

The restaurant is located in the hotel Montanus. You have to find your own way to the dining room which is located at the rear of the hotel, as you pass a narrow hallway by the open kitchen. The awkward look we received from the chef should have forwarned us that maybe we should have come another evening. The dining... More

I had visited this restaurant several times when it was based in Damme, before moving to Bruges, and wondered if it had kept its quality. I was not disappointed. The meal from start to end was a fantastic culinary experience, starting with some free pre-dinner tasters, then into a meal which brought flavours bursting forth. Service was impeccable, and despite... More

We chose this restaurant after reading reviews on this site. We opted for the fixed price menu at 37.50 euros. Three starters were offered and three mains - the dessert was chef's seasonal offering. My mussels starter and sea bass main were exceptional and my husband's choice of mackerel to start and steak with bearnaise sauce were faultless. Complimentary nibbles... More
