“Enjoyable Meal”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Having deliberated all evening over where to eat, we came upon Salade Folle and realised it was nearly 9pm, (latish to eat in Bruges apparently!) they were willing to serve us and we had a very enjoyable meal. My husband had asparagus with grey shrimp and I had salmon tagliatelle, both reasonably generous portions and tasty.
Meal cost 54 euros, with wine and a creme brulee.
Friendly service.

“OK”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Limited menu and expensive for what there was available plenty of other choices around the area to pick from

“Love the concept, but the salads don't live up to expectations”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We decided to try out Salade Folle when we felt like having a light dinner in form of a salad. The restaurant is a little hidden slightly outside the touristic centre of Bruges, with a pretty and pleasant atmosphere.

The salads we ordered - the one with feta, and the one with mozzarella - were a decent size and more than enough for a dinner. However, they were not as good as expected.
First of all, the quality of the cheese was deplorable. Cheap feta and the kind of mozzarella generally sold as "pizza mozzarella" here in Belgium, much firmer and with less flavour than the higher quality mozzarella.
Also, we found convenience products such as carrots that had been bought grated (meaning they were as hard, dry and tasteless as cardboard) in the salad. The capsicum had been cut into tiny pieces that made them impossible to be eaten as part of the salad; we had to scrape them from the bottom of the plate.
Finally, the dressing was boring and uninspired, the same one used for both our salads.

All in all, a good concept, but disappointing. It would be nice if the restaurant focused more on the salads rather than on the host of other dishes on the menu. A type of "garden salad" with only vegetables would also be a nice addition so that one could eat a vegetarian salad without being bothered by the taste of cheap cheese.
I really wish our experience would have been better because I believe that Bruges needs a good salad place. Alas, for the moment we will stick to Het Dagelijks Brood instead.

“Lovely food, good price, great service”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

It's not always easy for vegetarians in Brugge bus Salade Folle is a great restaurant with some good vegetarian options. The salads an quiches are fantastic! Friendly service.
The prices are a bit higher since the new owners but the food is as good as before.
It's a pity they don't have the salad "La Vie est Belle" anymore.

“Salads and a lot more”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

If you want a break from the local cuisine, try this restaurant down near the Beguinage. Fantastic salads,and the champignons on toast are to die for. Friendly staff, great food.
