Today we've been looking for something different and found that restaurant near our hotel. We ordered Couscous Vegetable and Couscous with Chicken and enjoyed both dishes! The portions were big and we couldn't eat up everything. (price/quality ratio was really good for Brugge!) The owner is a funny but also a pleasent host and we enjoyed our stay in the restaurant!

We were lucky to find Passion for Food via Tripadvisor as there aren't that many interesting vegetarian options in the traditional Bruges restaurants. We enjoyed Vegetable Tagine and Vegetable Couscous dishes here, both were tasty and felt fairly healthy in comparison to the waffles and chocolates we had been eating the rest of the holiday. Recommended for vegetarians, but also the meat dishes looked good too, and the cost was pretty reasonable too.

Our group of 12 adults (1 veggie) enjoyed an excellent lunchtime meal at this restaurant which is not far from the main square. It was empty when we arrived and is fairly minimalst in its style; we nearly went away because it looked so quiet; but we made the right decision and stayed. Our host was very friendly and helpful and took time to describe the dishes that were available - soups, moussaka, penne pasta, lamb couscous - it was all delicious. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

We too enjoyed our meal so much that we soon returned for another. The owner is exceedingly hospitable and speaks English well. Everything is made from scratch, including three daily soups. All salads, of which there are at least half a dozen, come in two sizes, and even the small is quite generous; the Passion Salad, with its bed of wheat berries, is unusual and deliciously piquant. Main courses consist of a wide range of tajines and couscous dishes, the latter of which are served with homemade harissa. Although there is no wine list, his small selection is well-chosen and quaffably priced; our Romanian pinot noir had the imprimatur of Hugh Johnson!

This wonderful restaurant is only a few metres away from the main square.

We were greeted warmly by our host who was both attentive and had excellent listened skills.

My wife had a chicken and couscous special which arrived with harrisa and a bowl of delicious vegetables in a 'broth'. I ordered mousaka and the aubergines were deliciously succulent.

We paid less than 40 euros for 2 people including drinks which is 25% less than you pay in the tourist square.

Whether your a vegetarian or not this restaurant is a MUST VISIT.
