My husband and I visited this restaurant whilst on a weekend trip to Bruges, we booked it before we left based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was lovely, the restaurant is cosy and the service very personable. The food was delicious, the portions were large, overall very good value for money. Would definitely recommend.

We had a fantastic Flemish stew here. The meal was huge and very tasty. The waitress was very friendly. I would definitely recommend.

Thanks to booking, we got a table. The restaurant is tiny but the reception is genuinely warm. Food is simple, hearty and plentiful, so much so that after sharing the starter of shrimp and cheese croquettes neither of us could finish our main course. The eel in green sauce: the flesh was dense but the sauce needed something sharper and fresher to cut through the inherent richness. The three Dover soles: a generous portion. Brilliant chips! Salads might be improved by a dressing other than regulation mayonnaise. Ice cream portion would have fed a family.

Jazz and blues soundtrack added to general ambiance. Fellow diners seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as we were.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful evening at this restaurant to celebrate her 60th birthday. As recommended on here we booked weeks in advance - just as well.
On a rainy Tuesday evening in Bruges, the Pro Deo was still full. In fact, would be diners were turned away. That is the measure of the popularity of the establishment.
We started with a first-- Belgian gin and tonics which boasted a hint of aniseed and certainly hit the spot.
For starters we had the cheese croquettes, followed by the Flemish stew (the boss) and a steak tartar. Both were, as often-warned ,of substantial proportions. Neither of use are huge eaters and we met our match in the portion size. The food was delicious, helped on its way with a couple of glasses good house red.
We still found room to share a sweet of an ice-cream concoction which came with a jug of delightful chocolate sauce.
All in all a lovely evening hosted by the charming Nathalie. We would love to return one day..I'll just have to remember to book!

A lovely little restaurant with really friendly staff. We both had the Flemish stew which was fantastic with great chunks of meat, and a small pan of extra for a top up. Definitely one not to miss, but make sure you book as it was full and we saw three couples turned away
