Description: A friendly, privately run restaurant, close to the centre of Bruges. Specialising in a volonte (all you can eat) spare ribs which can be ordered succulently slow-cooked or tradional barbequed for that extra bite! Other specialities on our menu include fajitas, as well as excellent T-Bone and Rib-eye steaks. All this can be washed down with some of the regions finest beers.

We called in early evening and wanted a table for 3, the friendly guy said he could seat us as long as we could vacate the table for 8.15pm which suited us perfect. We all ordered the ribs which I can honestly say where the best we have ever had. Tender and succulent in a chocolate and beer sauce. There was a choice of sauces and they came with salad and fries.

Our second visit in a year, and it does exactly what the name suggests; serves ribs and beer aplenty.

7 of us, including three teenagers, seated in a first floor compact dining room.

The place was packed on our Saturday night visit. Valentines weekend. Booked for 8:30pm but asked to return just after 9:00pm as diners at 'our' table hadn't vacated. No hardship. A decent bar close by hosted us for the half hour wait.

Ribs of superb quality in a range of four marinades. They're offered on an unlimited basis for just €18. Served with salad and fries. Beer and chocolate marinade, spicy, barbecue and dry rub.

Alternatives include the excellent chicken fajitas, similarly priced.

Beers of choice, local, regional. A great combination of tender meat, falling from the ribs, washed down with fresh Pils or the local (very local) Bruges Zot Blonde.

We made the 'mistake' of taking the Nachos for starters. Supposedly 'small', two portions between the 7 of us recommended by Peter (I assume the owner), but the plates were piled high with nachos, chilli, salads, cheese, beans etc. Fantastic stuff, but too much when faced with the ribs and fajitas enjoyed later.

Peter's a great host, assisted by an attentive team.

The place deserves its high ranking on TripAdvisor.

Another must visit when in Bruges. But you have to like the format of unlimited meats. Tender, fall from the bone, tasty meats.

There's another deal of €25 for starter of nachos, mains of unlimited ribs and a dessert or Irish coffee.

After a brilliant day sight seeing in Bruges, Ribs n Beer was the perfect end. An utterly delicious meal enjoyed by myself and my boyfriend. Affordable yet romantic with candles and a roaring fire. The service was impeccable. Good choice of drinks and food.

I had the chicken fajitas which were delicious and came with lots of different things to put in them. My boyfriend had the all you can eat ribs, once he had finished the waitress was happy to give him more. The food was cooked to perfection and tasted great. A well deserved meal after sight seeing :-)

Not in the centre of Bruges but easy to find and great for all ages and children. A must do when in Bruges :-)

The service at Ribs n Beer was the best we had anywhere on our trip to Bruges. The staff are really accommodating - it was our first night so we asked him to recommend some beers and he brought us some to try. They were all amazing of course! The ribs are incredible too. We went for the slow cooked ones and they just melt in the mouth. Then with your unlimited amount you can keep trying the different sauces! The house one is just amazing, you can really taste the chocolate. We had the set menu with starter, unlimited ribs and dessert for just 25 euros! Such good value...we were so full at the end we could hardly move.
