Description: We propose a fine seasonal Flemish / French cuisine by Chef Gregory Slembnrouck whose inspiration is lead by high quality, fresh market produce. His second home is certainly his stove, where he spends most of his time there creating and working his culinary magic to obtain the perfect gourmet statement for each guest that is both royal in presentation and abundant in taste. Each plate offered at Le Mystique is proof of Chef Gregory's refined culinary expertise, which showcases not only his extraordinary love for food, but as a master of his craft he is constantly preoccupied with balancing his inspiration for new presentations, his flow of creativity, and his incessant quest for continuous quality. You can fully enjoy this exquisite cuisine in a perfect balance between cost and quality, in the unique historic room in the hotel dating back to 1869 by choosing for one of our original menus 'Flavours of the region', or simply by ordering your favourite dishes à la carte.

Le Mystique has a warm and intimate feel. The food was beautifully cooked and presented; definitely fine dining.
The service lacked finesse. The waiting staff were, in our opinion, a little aloof and could have been more attentive. It really wasn't very busy so there was absolutely no excuse for failing to notice our glasses were empty. Once all the courses had been served, the staff disappeared! We actually had to go to find them to ask for our bill!
I had read that the restaurants in Bruges are often over priced. I would actually say that the food at Le Mystique just about justified the price point but it's not all about the food. If you're spending an average of EUR 35 on a main course you also want to feel like you're being well looked after and that the experience as a whole matched the food. This is where Le Mystique falls short. If the hotel can improve this, they will have an outstanding restaurant.

Le Mystique is one of the best restaurants in Belgium, from our experience and has two red forks by Michelin, which considers Le Mystique a very pleasant experience. The ingredients are organic and from the Flanders region.

Executive chef Koenraad Steenkiste is responsible for all the culinary delights coming out of the kitchen, while Brecht takes care of the front of the house.

We were very lucky to enjoy dinner there at a very short notice.

We were guests of the Hotel Heritage (see also review), where the Le Mystique is located at.

Our table was at one of the windows. The restaurant is classic furnished with ceiling murals and beautiful decorated doors dating back to 1869.

We had had a long day, starting at 3 am, due to our travels, so we didn't want to have alcohol. We ordered a large bottle of still water. It was Le Mystique branded, and we liked it.

The menu offered an a la carte choice or two set menus. One was a taste of Belgium, the other the summer menu.
A la carte included three starters, three main courses and three desserts.

The two set menus were 45 Euro (ca. 60 USD) for a three course or 60 Euro (ca. 80 USD) with wine pairing, a four course 60 Euro (ca. 80 USD) and 80 Euro (ca. 106.50 USD) respectively.


A la carte appetizers started from 21 Euro (ca. 28 USD) up to 24 Euro (ca. 37.40 USD), mains were 30 Euro (ca. 40 USD) and desserts 12 Euro (ca. 16 USD) each.

A goose liver pate macaroon was served as amouse bouche. It was delicious and interesting that sweet and savory was working so well.

Next we had Artisan cured "Brasvar" ham with Cavaillon, rocket salad and tarragon sorbet. The sorbet was the perfect palate cleanser. We both loved the combination. It was savory and sweet with melon coulis and goose liver pate.

Our main courses were beef steak black and blue with gravy (Belgian style), vegetables and horse radish mash and Hake with black ink tagliatelle, mussels, Mediterranean vegetables and yuzu sauce.

The steak did melt in the mouth and the flavors were all well balanced.

My dish was very colorful and light. The tagliatelle and the yuzu sauce came in their own little china. The vegetables were served in a stack and everything was very delicious.

Our dessert was Eton Mess of summer fruits and berries, homemade vanilla ice cream from "Planifolia Sumatra". It was deconstructed and the apricot was really fantastic. There was also crushed strawberry meringue, which added crunch to the softness of the fruits, berries and ice cream. So far this was the best Eton Mess ever.

We spent two hours at Le Mystique and had a great time. In fact it flew by.

We thought the timing between courses was perfect and the service provided was great. It was non intrusive and always there, when we needed them.

The memories of the excellent flavors and textures are going to stay very long in our memory.

The bill came in at 96.50 Euro (ca. 129 USD). Booking ahead is highly recommended, like, when staying in the Hotel Heritage, Relais & Chateaux, in which Le Mystique is located, this combination is a fantastic treat. The breakfast @ 24 Euros per person with Champagne included is also served here each morning. A splendid experience.

Would we return? Anytime.


Would we recommend this restaurant to a friend? YES!
Would we enjoy dinner again in this restaurant? YES!

Had our 45th wedding anniversary while in Bruges and that night ate in our hotel - Le Mystique. Food was excellent - and I struggled to eat all 3 courses - but I made it! The service is excellent as well. Staff are very friendly and make sure everything is just so.
