“Well worth finding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

De Pepermolen is 600m from the market square but well worth the walk. In contrast to many central venues it offers good value, a quiet and comfortable dining room and excellent service. We chose the Chef's Special Menu at 37 Euro together with the selection of matching wines for 12 Euro. An amuse bouche of white asparagus soup was delicious and was followed by a classic Belgian starter of asparagus, eggs and shrimp (this being the season for Belgian asparagus!). A main course of perfectly cooked guinea fowl and a cheese plate featuring local varieties completed the meal. The white and red wines that were served were perfectly judged and our glasses were constantly refilled - fantastic value for money! The service from the owner was friendly and very professional. Highly recommended.

“Delightful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

This restaurant is about a ten minute walk from the centre and is worth the journey. The food was delightful and subtle. The service was excellent. The price was reasonable compared with the more central restaurants

“Fabulous restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

What a find! This restaurant was recommended and booked by the receptionist at our hotel. It's not on the main tourist route so you may not stumble across it but it's well worth booking. Food in Belgium is expensive but this was no more expensive than some of the more touristy places we went to. The food however was in a different class. Really really good - Michelin star standard I'd say, beautifully presented and delicious and with a divine amuse bouche of asparagus soup. Yum! They even had food for the kids which was gobbled down pretty quickly. A real treat, and by far the best meal we had on our long weekend away.

“Excellent Cooking by an experienced Chef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

This Restaurant is certainly very good indeed.

Well spaced tables here, ( note that tables at Bistro Den Huzaar are crammed in and despite booking we were given a table squeezed between 3 other tables,they would not give us an alternative table, so we left !! )
lots of natural light,excellent service and a very good Set Dinner Menu with 3 generous courses including,if you wish, 2 glasses of lovely white whine with the starter and 2 glasses of red wine with the main course,
We recommended it to other Hotel guests where we were staying and they reported back that they had also greatly enjoyed eating there.

“Very good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

We were referred to this restaurant by the owners of the B&B that we were staying. We chose this restaurant for our first night in Bruge. The atmosphere was lovely and we chose the three course dinner with wine pairings. The food was of excellent quality. The cost was reasonable, and it was a relaxing evening. There was only one waitress, and she works very hard to make sure that everyone's needs are met. Very friendly and helpful. If you can, come a bit early to avoid the regular dinner crowd and enjoy a lovely meal.
