“Great Food, More Locals, Fewer Tourists”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

My husband and I had both had a great meal at De Nisse--and we didn't have fondue! Since most of the reviews seem to focus on fondue, I was a little worried (needlessly) when we ordered something else. I had gambas (prawns) in a fantastic onion reduction sauce and he had eel in green sauce. The room is warm, simple and lovely to be in. The service is friendly and low key. It's outside of the more touristed parts of Brugges, and has a real neighborhood feel. Despite the fact that the room was just about full it was not noisy. There aren't a huge amount of choices for entrees, but based on our meals (and all the reviews of the apparently excellent fondue) I expect that everything here is carefully and lovingly prepared.

“Fondue memories”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The atmosphere was described by my wife as " warm, hospitable and what i've been searching for. Like in eating in a the house of a local". And that is what is was like - we were the only tourists there, all the rest were locals. It was warm. it was friendly in that sort of share a joke, nod and a wink friendly that puts you at ease immediately - but without being cliched. Genuine is the word.

The decor is quirky - oddly Nordic in places. However none of it unpleasant.

The service was very attentive and very helpful but not pushy or overbearing. Both the host and waitress were at least tri-lingual and just, well. nice!

So to the food. We were given three hors d'oeuvres We had a good choice of starters and mains and chose the fondue. What a lot of steak! It had to be fillet steak as it was so tender. It was complemented by a luscious French red that was very reasonably, in fact well, priced.

We took a dog with us and he was also treated well. Mind you they like pets at De Nisse, check out Louis and Louise the newts in the tank at the bar.

Overall, it was a great place to eat espcially if you want to avoid the tourist traps. Good food, great value and friendly too.

Go there - you'll enjoy it!

“Great Fondue - worth a visit”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We were actually hoping to get a table at a neighbouring restaurant and as they were fully booked we tried De Nisse and weren't disappointed! Fairly casual dining but lovely wine and big portions. The beef fondue was really good and the salad and chips portions were huge! wine was very tasty and the service was friendly if not a bit on the slow side, but that really just lended itself to the relaxed atmosphere there. Worth a visit.

“Great fun and food”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

A lucky find. A fondue is the thing to have. We had the beef fondue and it was superb. Great size portion, beautifully tender meat, lovely accompaniments. Very friendly and good service. Only a small restaurant although there is an outside area used in summer, so at weekends or in high season, it may be sensible to book.
