Close to the market place, this small cozy place serving 16 guests is a gem that should not be missed. Many restaurants in Bruges try to copy great chefs and loose their soul. This place remained authentic the dishes are made with fantastic seasonal ingredients and the result is fantastic. Not to be missed.

My partner and I visited de Stove on a recent weekend trip to Bruges. The meal was one of the highlights of our visit. We chose the tasting menu with wines which was excellent value for money. The food was varied and tasty, with wines poured with a generous hand. The welcome was lovely from Erica at front of house.... More

Beautifully decorated in simplistic style , clean and homely . Greeted by the lady of the house, menus given out and drinks orders taken. My carpaccio starter was excellent, fresh beef and Parmesan shavings a plenty. My wife had the oriental soup which was plentiful. Main course of sea bass on risotto was fantastic, well cooked and beautifully presented. The... More

We decided to visit this restaurant based on the excellent recommendations found on Tripadvisor. Sadly the truth is different. First the service: the lady of the house works cold and is clearly not liking wat she is doing and she wants the guests to know that she is fat up with her job. We got it! The food is OK,... More

There are many places to eat in Bruges but it's hard to know exactly what you'll get. After reading reviews, we decided just to wander around and see what we liked the look of. De Stove had a quiet, 'serious' look about it, but welcoming, with more than half the tables occupied on a damp, cold Monday evening. It was... More

In view of the reviews, we booked before our 3 nights in Bruges & were very pleased with our dining experience - 2 couples.Small & cosy, only about 8 tables & very good service by Chef's wife alone - a little formal but possibly not overly confident speaking English & chef obviously kept busy in the kitchen.Food was very well...

Spent my 50th birthday here with friends and whilst I wasn't very well the owners really accommodated us. Even had a massive candle served in my dessert. Food was of a very high standard as was the wines my guests had with the pairing option...well worth it. The portions are on the large side for me but the men in... More

This little restaurant, nestled amongst the moules & Frites joints is a gem of a find! The quality, flavour and presentation of the food and the simple style is Michelin Star level Service good (although I think the little lady could do with one more pair of hands - for her benefit not ours!) Would return to Brugge just to... More

This plae is right near the market square. The seafood is delicious. Loved the seabass and my husband loved the cod fish. The desserts are delicious. Great handmade biscuits. Good wines and spirits.
