I booked a meal here for my birthday with my girlfriend. I'd recommend ringing ahead to ensure you get the reservation, but they speak English so don't worry if your French isn't great!

The menu has a fairly wide choice, but being tourists, we stuck to two fairly traditional Belgian dishes - the Flemish stew, which is the best we had across our few days in the city, and the steak frites, which was juicy and cooked perfectly to our requirements.

It's not especially cheap, but the intimate venue is good for romance, and the service is personable without being forceful.

We randomly bumped into the couple who were staying in the room next to us in our hotel in Gruuthuse Hof too, demonstrating that the reputation of the restaurant definitely precedes it.

Strongly recommend for couples looking for an intimate venue for a special occasion.

We were not hungry at all, actually we were somehow on diet. So we've chosen a Bouillabaisse. And it came like it should be: freshly cooked with valuable fish and seafood varieties, cooekd to the point. An excellent Bouillabaisse is never cheap - cannot be! We enjoyed food and the professional, non-pushy service very much!

We ate here last night - a party of eight, 4 adults and 4 children. We chose Gruuthuse Hof based on TA reviews and because of the availablity of a Tourist Menu.

The Tourist Menu offered soup, followed by choice of steak, half a chicken, pork chop or salmon, followed by desert, for 16 euros 90 cents - good value for Bruges.

We were all very pleased with our choices. The staff were efficient and friendly - overall a most pleasant experience. Thank you!

We dined out on the same night as the previous reviewers. The restaurant was full. You need to book. The fish stew was heavenly as was the grand marnier souffle.
