“Stylish, Friendly Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

After being thoroughly shocked by some of the awful service experiences in Bruges restaurants, this was a breath of fresh air.
Perfect for lunch, with a wonderful outdoor area to sit in the sun when the weather is nice. The service was brilliant and the food good, upmarket but not snobby.
Do your research before you eat somewhere in Bruges as due to the vast volume of tourists it can be very hit and miss.

“Smart Eating in Bruges”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Like many busy cities Bruges has its fair share of very average restaurants - the Maria Van Bourgondie is not average. Very efficient, smart service and beautiful food make it worth a visit. We sat outside even though it was not particulalry warm - the overhead heaters help. The food was very high quality, not cheap but worth it.

“Another great visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

We have eaten here half a dozen times over the last 15 years and it is always good - not the best in Bruges but absolutely fine. This time we ate outside under the heaters, and it was brilliant. Had the Belgian stew and fish and both were good. Service a bit functional but overall would recommend as a safe but not cheap option.

“Lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Whilst in Bruges we stopped here one lunch time for a drink and the service was lovely. Most people were eating and they were not phased that we only wanted a drink. We could see the quality of food delivered and we asked to see the evening menu. It looked very interesting. We booked for the evening of my 60th birthday! We were not disappointed! The service and food was exceptional. I can highly recommend this restaurant and I know without a doubt that when we visit Bruges again we will be eating here!

“Nice but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

The food is nice but the whole atmosphere was a bit pretentious. The music was bad - we had to suffer through some Celine Dion and Lara Fabian! We had mussels and chips - fresh and tasty, and meatballs a la liegeoise - delicious. I'm going to try and make them myself :)
