Description: Reliva serves our customers honest seafood and organic meat with as much bio ingredients that are available on the market. The vegetarian and veganistic dishes are prepared with the most care. Also we take good care of "lactose" and "gluten" free meals. Just ask our advice.The wines are advised per dish and can be ordered by the glass - a quite unique feature. As our guest we welcome you with a smile and deliver a friendly service. When the weather allows it, we serve on our nice and sunny terrace that has a unique view on both the Sint-Salvator Cathedral and the church of Our lady.

“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

We wandered around in circles before finding this place but were not disappointed. An imaginative menu with nice choice of wines and quietly efficient and pleasant service.The decor and mood is perfect here. A bit pricey but the food really was excellent and cooked and presented with flair.

Many thanks for you nice review. The prices reflect the quality of the producats as they are all biological and fresh. Also the prices of real ancient houses in the centre of Bruges are really high.
We hope to see you again when the terrace is open on a sunny day in the upcoming months.

“simply spendid”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

visiting the restaurant with globetrotter friends we only see once in a year when they are back in Belgium, and we can say we had a superb evening, what a good cuisine ( try the bouilabaisse ! ), good wines, service with a big smile...only positive experience my friends!
As we had a veganist/vegatarian in our team, the choice for her was easy and resulted in the same positive experience. Top recommendation, looking forward to try some other selections then.

Thank you for your lovely review. Indeed Réliva specializes in combining for 2 or more customers classic dishes with vegetarian and also vegan choices. Our wines are also carefully selected and match perfectly with the dishes.

“food excellent but a bit overpriced”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

We ate a delicious pumpkin, chestnut and licorice soup to start, a goats cheese and roasted pear salad and had a bottle of rose wine, and fizzy water. it cost over £60.00 which is a lot for soup and salad, the restaurant had more veggie options than most, but it was the usual veggie lasagne...Yawn!
the food we chose was well presented, and delicious.

Thank you for your nice review. Concerning the pricing : biological, fresh and not common products come a little more expensive than regular ingredients. Also the chef selects as much as possible sustainable products and these are in most cases also more expensive. I hope we see you back in the near future.

“A special, individual place to eat”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

This restaurant is so well worth the visit. It is an individual restaurant where the food is cooked reallly fresh and the menu is really enticing. We had the feeling that the wines on the menu are chosen very carefully to compliment the food. It was not cheap but we received a really good service and were served with a complimentary palate cleanser.
Go to this restaurant when you have the whole evening to be there, enjoying a lovely glass of wine in between your courses.
Book before you go.

“Absolute fantastic Christmas Eve dinner”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

I went to the restaurant during the Christmas eve with my friend. The food was delicious and the drinks was also proper served. The 5-gang dinner is perfect and delicate. The chef was amazing. You never imagine she is just like about 20's. And of course, the owner, a couple are sweet and awesome. By the way, the deer beef was fantastic. It is absolutely worthwhile to go there to celebrate Christmas.
