A lot has been nice in the restaurant, wine and some of the dishes. But finding a hair in my food and then having the need to convince the waitress that it's a hair and nothing else is a bit awkward. After a bit of back and forth she said I will replace it - but it came across as unwillingly. The new plate had a smaller portion on it - interesting! In essence, what was missed is a simple "sorry" - that would have made the difference.
Ambience of restaurant depends on your own taste ... for me a bit too minimalistic though.

My girlfriend and I chose De Florentijnen as a place to have a nice meal on our final evening in Bruges and it didn't disappoint. The food was delightful, with my order of Saddle of Hare being beyond delicious. The staff were courteous and attentive and recommended the perfect wines to compliment our meals. A wonderful evening at a wonderful restaurant.

If you want to be treated like royalty, try this restaurant just North of the central market. Pricey, but worth the visit. We had the Sea Bass and Angus Beef - both as fresh as one could ever find.

Likely just an off night, but the waiter and host seemed to be in a row all night which made for poor ambience (fighting repeatedly in front of customers) and worse service (sitting around waiting for the next course, water or wine, or the check). Even if an off night not professional.

We went there on a Saturday evening and to our surprise it wasn't very crowded. Friendly staff - delicious food and nice champagne & wines. Interior decoration a bit outdated but a very good experience overall.
