We were staying at the Grand Hotel Casselburgh just a few minutes walk up the road and was recommended this by our hotel reception team, we hadn't reserved anywhere for a Saturday night and wanted to avoid the main touristy square. We didn't think we'd have much luck but she phoned ahead and they'd had a cancellation so we opted to go (only realised afterwards it had been on our radar via TA as one of the Michelin restaurants!)

We were welcomed quickly and settled at our table. We opted for the scallops and tuna carpaccio to start and then followed it with moules frites. We were too full for dessert but spied some nice dishes on other tables. The service was prompt, attentive and polite and the atmosphere was good for a late Saturday evening. We especially loved the fish tank with lobster and oysters which gave us the reassurance the food would be fresh :)

Would definitely recommend but it's mostly fish on the menu so just be conscious before you go along.

My wife and I ate here last week on our last night in Bruges. We had a lovely meal. My wifes lobster was straight out the tank, which also contains oysters. I had a fresh fish platter which had a superb mixture of shellfish and soft fish. Highly recommended, if you like fish!

We were staying at the Grand Hotel Casselburgh nearby and walked past this fish restaurant several times. It was always busy.
Booked it as a special night before we left. Friendly and attentive staff and superb meal. Good food and good value.

A few blocks off the main square, Gouden Kroes is an elegant, enjoyable seafood restaurant. The staff is very accommodating, and the fish dishes are superb. There are also a variety of oyster selections, and some beef dishes, but the fish is the reason to eat here. For an unpretentious fine-dining experience, this is the place to go.

Expensive even for Bruges. Great and delicate service. Fresh fish, perfectly and slightly cooked Sole meuniere. A very reasonable choice of wines. Cosy atmosphere.
