Having read several excellent reviews of The Park Restaurant, we chose it to celebrate a special occasion and we were not disappointed. Upon arriving we were impressed by the beautiful interior and friendly and efficient welcome. The front of house staff were very attentive and helpful, offering plenty of explanation of the menu choices. The restaurant offers a 25 euro per person drinks package which comprises a Champagne or Kir Royale aperitif, followed by two wines suitably matched to your starter and main course, and tea or coffee. Wine is topped up during the meal, it isn't limited to one glass. The food was amazing - piping hot, well presented, good portion sizes and delicious. It could not be faulted. We chose the 40 euro menu and there was plenty of choice. Axel deserves a particular mention because he and his waiting staff made the evening really special. Axel is efficient, discreet, and amusing. He appears to love what he does and we have to say the level of service was among the best we have experienced. The whole dining experience was wonderful and unhurried. We would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone visiting Bruges if good food and excellent service are what you are looking for.

We chose this restaurant due to the very good reviews and it lived up to and exceeded our expectations. We were on our honeymoon and looking for somewhere special and our experience was certainly that. Axel was an extremely pleasant and knowledgable host and his brother an outstanding chef. My wife chose a la carte whilst I went for the set menu, all dishes were excellent in taste and presentation and cooked to perfection. If you only visit one restaurant in Brugge make sure it is the Park restaurant as Axel and his team will make you feel special too!!
Thank you Axel for a great evening!

We went to The Park to celebrate a birthday and it proved a most excellent treat. We received a warm welcome from the friendly staff and were treated to hors d'oeuvres while we studied the menu. We decided on the four course meal from the set menu. We were then shown to our table in one of the beautifuly decorated dining rooms.
Our food was excellent, the wine superb, all in all a great dining experience.

Like so many other reviews, we agree that this was a great restaurant. The service was top notch, food delicious and the deco was beautiful. I would go with the set menu if you are hungry because it is the better deal for multiple courses but do not feel that you have to if you just want a main dish.
Quite an expensive restaurant and there are some other restaurant in town that are almost as good for less, but you will not be disappointed if your meal is as good as ours was.
Only reason we did not rated this restaurant excellent was the menu prices but sometimes you get what you pay for.

Dear Friends from Canada,

Thank you very much for your visit as well as your review.
I am very happy to hear that you left as a happy customer.
We aim to give the best value possible, not to be the cheapest.

As you correctly point out, quality comes at a price.

Nevertheless, I consider our four course choicemenu at 40 euro per person excellent value.
In many, real expensive restaurants, this would be the price of one dish.

All the best from Bruges,

Axel
