Restaurant questions


We'll be in Bruges on Saturday and Sunday. I understand from many posts (thanks a lot) it's better to make a reservation for Sat. What about Sun - the same?

Also, do all restaurants (around Markt/Burg) accept credit cards? What about dress code?

Thank you very much,

1. Re: Restaurant questions

Although we were not in Bruges on a Saturday or Sunday, all the restaurants and cafes around the Markt area seemed pretty eager for more customers last October. That said, I would definitely make a reservation if I was keen to eat at a particular establishment, no matter what the day of the week.

All of the venues we ate at, including bars, were happy to accept plastic.

I would suggest wandering a little further from the Markt \ Burg.

The restaurants there have good views and cheap menus, but the bill can soon rack up with drinks etc. which are more expensive than places a short stroll away. They are squarely aimed at the tourist market one off type visitor and overall prices are higher than elsewhere and quality is average.

If you do want to eat on the Markt the best (based on feedback from some Tripadvisor regulars) is Craenenburg


There are a great choice of good restaurants within a 5-10 min stroll of the Markt.

Do you have any preferences for type of food? What sort of budget?

Below is a great website that has most of the restaurants in Bruges on it.


Put 8000 in as the zip code

You can then search through and see if there is anything that catches your eye.

if you have any specific questions then by all means come back to us.
