The seafood here was delicious and it is very centrally located. However it lacked a little atmosphere, so not a stand out meal in spite of the lovely food.

Visited with my daughter on a road trip. Food fine and waitress very pleasant. However, lacked much of an atmosphere and staff just a little bland and subservient rather than characterful. I don't want to sound too negative as it was perfectly enjoyable evening. Just 'good' rather than memorable.

The food was beautifully prepared with excellent ingredients. Really good wine choice. Accommodated dogs that were well behaved. Understated and good for conversations.

Had an enjoyable dinner here recently. It's quite small, so booking is advised. Friendly yet very professional service. I would describe the cuisine as refined country Flemish. Good and reasonably priced wine list.

This small family restaurant is well worth a visit if you can get in. There are only about 8 tables and a short menu but the cooking is of a very high standard. I particularly enjoyed the local waterzooi (fish stew).

What a superb family run restaurant that I would highly recommend you visit whilst in Brugge. Run by a husband ad wife team the food was really first class and the service very attentive. We travel frequently and would highly recommend a visit and will definitely be coming back.

De Stove is a small 20 seat restaurant run by a husband and wife team, Gino Van Brabant & Erica Travers. The Erica runs front-of-house, prepares things like the bread and deserts, whilst Gino toils generally unseen in the background preparing the bulk of the excellent food. We had a reservation which is good as the restaurant was almost full.... More

We visited here for an anniversary meal and found the service and the food delightful. The lady who looked after us is married to the chef and tellingly recommended we share the duck pate starter 'as it is quite rich'. She was right and could have charged us for two portions. The restaurant is tucked away in a side street... More

Lovely little restaurant that is set back from the markt square. The menu has something to cater for most tastes and we ate 2 dishes, from it, both fantastic especially the baby lobster. The wine list also had a lot to choose from as well as a good selection of decent wines available in 1/2 bottles. Quiet, unpretentious and comfortable... More

We came to Bruges for birthday celebrations and dined at The Stove (nicely tucked away from the business of The Markt). The food was excellent (I had a mouth watering codfish served with a lemon sauce, carrots and lentils; my companion had a delicious Flemish stew served with a very nice piece of bread). The dessert (intense chocolate tart with... More
