De Pepermolen, quite recently refurbished in a tasteful, yet modern style is run by a very successful husband and wife team. Guests receive a warm and friendly greeting to this intimate yet well populated restaurant - it is always a good sign when a large percentage of the guests are locals; they tend to know where they can get a good meal and value for money ! The menu offers something for everyone, but the great surprise comes when the dishes are served. For example, cod may be an unassuming fish, but the treatment given to it by the chef makes it a dish fit for a king as it is served with a range of appetizing accompaniments and superbly presented. Incidentally, the deserts are no good for anyone intending to lose weight, they are excellent and only strengthen one's resolve to return - and soon. A visit to De Pepermolen has to be one of 'musts' of Brugge and we can't wait to return.

By chance we ended up in this restaurant that is located a little outside the city centre. We had the set menu with the wine arrangement, which was good value for money. The food was excellent and the wine was a very good choice. Even though there was only one person serving the entire restaurant, she was so friendly and helpful it felt as though she was there just serving us. The interior is stylish, but cosy. definitely worth the short walk from the busy city centre.

This restaurant is fairly small and was busy every time we passed. We booked a table for a Sunday evening, and once again it was full. The lady who waits the tables is fluent in so many languages, and doesn't get fazed at all. The food was fresh and tasty, the menu is small, but what they do they do very well.We ate the monkfish curry with pineapple, it was subtle and did not detract from the flavour of the fish. It's not cheap, but well worth a visit.

Pleasant environment. My wife's guinia hen dish was very good, but I was surprised that my cod fish really lacked flavor, as cod almost always retains its flavor.

We ate here twice during our trip to Bruge. The food was absolutely delicious and wine list extensive. The service was unassuming and friendly with little tasters being offered between courses. The chocolate macaroons given to us with coffee were just amazing! The cheese was good too. If you visit Bruge you must eat here.
