Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night
Description: A small cafe/bistro on the corner of Genthof and Langerei in Bruges. Serves limited menu of well-cooked food - good for a light lunch - excellent range of beers. Reasonably priced and we had a warm welcome on a very wet day which was lovely.

We chose this restaurant because of 2 reasons: Rick Steves recommended it in his Europe 2013 book; and we wanted a quiet, cosy place to eat. It delivered on both. When we arrived we had to wait about 30 minutes for a table (they estimated closer to an hour, so we were pleased) but it was no issue as we weren't in a rush and wanted to relax and enjoy a pint.

We sat at a quiet, dimly lit table near the bar and it was a very enjoyable atmosphere. I suspected it to be loud since it was a small dining room, but it still felt intimate. We enjoyed shrimp krokets and a Croque monsieur sandwich with beer and wine. Very good value and enjoyable experience overall.

we always think of this as Patricia's 't Terrastje as this lady was so friendly & helpful. although we did not eat here we regularly called in for drinks & she was always ready to advise on where to go & how to get there - she is lovely.

try the mac and cheese and ham--several good Belgium beers and ales--owners are great. very cosy place but not open on Wednesday or Thursday it seems.

We had a good meal at a decent price at this charming little neighborhood bistro. It is small inside with only a few tables but that is part of what we enjoyed about it. It wasn't one of the gimmicky restaurants that cater to tourists. There were several locals eating there, and we were waited on by the owners. It also has a nice little patio seating area that we would have taken advantage of if the weather had been better. The menu had a good selection of light meals and beer.

The food wasn't memorable. probably the blandest food we had during our trip. Lady behind the bar was great. The patio looks like a place to share drinks with your friends.
