I stopped here for lunch on a weekend trip to Bruges with friends. We were a large group of 8 and having been turned away from other restaurants who couldn't accommodate us, we so pleased when we came across Aquarel. They were friendly, very welcoming and despite being busy, did their upmost so we could sit together, even going to the lengths of rearranging the tables. The food and drink matched the high level of service we received from the staff and certainly did not disappoint. Between us we sampled a good range of the menu and all thoroughly enjoyed it - clean plates all round! Goats cheese croquettes and the to-die-for hot chocolate are highly recommended, as is sampling the local beer, Zot! It's definitely worth seeking this place out and I certainly will on my next trip to Bruges. Thank you Aquarel!

I stopped here with my two daughters for lunch and was extremely satisfied. In a lovely little square, this restaurant with it's extremely friendly and helpful owner ended our visit in Brugge with a delightful lunch. All of our choices were good but their pan sautéed fish was simply delicious. Would definitely come back and highly recommend it to everyone.

Thank Andrew E

I had the Exotic Salad at Aquarel. It make a change from the meat and fries. It contains chicken and many types of fresh fruit. It was a great meal with friendly and prompt service.
