“Impressive food and service”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We enjoyed our meal at Park Restaurant very much and found the service to be very welcoming and professional. Safe to say we would probably have enjoyed it more had we come on a ‘regular’ night as opposed to New Year’s Eve, since given the nature of this restaurant we expected their New Year's Eve to be a bit more class than camp, but that said we were duly impressed with the quality of both the food and the service.

Dear Scottie23,

Tzhank you very much for your fine review.

New Years Eve is indeed a very different night from all other nights.
So people also expect something different then on any other night.

This results in a very lively athmosphere, which you have experienced first hand.
The positive reactions from people over the past 25 years, have encouraged us to provide this kind of entertainment on New Years Eve.

Please be welcome to experience our ambience on a regular evening.

All the best wishes for 2014 !

Axel

“Another lovely experience”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We visited this amazing restaurant a year ago, and have spent most of 2013 waiting to come back! When we booked our recent trip to Bruges this was certainly a restaurant we wanted to visit again and we were not disappointed.

Axel and his team have created a rare gem of a restaurant - The service, ambience and food are all superb and we had a lovely meal. We would both like to say a huge thank you for a lovely dining experience and we will be back soon!

If you are in Bruges we highly recommend a visit to The Park

“Wow!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

This was our first visit to Bruges and we had chosen the Park not only for our NYE celebration but also for our stay in this lovely city.

The restaurant is very, very pretty - almost Napoleonic in style and Nicole - the owner - made us very welcome indeed. It looked very glittery with all the Xmas trees and decorations.

We came down from our rooms to a glass of champagne each and had time to look around and see who we were going to spend the New Year with- very international. The usual Brit contingent (I'm one of them!), French and a lot of Russians. The staff were all very well turned out and very professional.

Started with a lobster bisque and blini with salmon and caviar - yummy! Each course was also accompanied by matching wines so it took away the problem of deciding what would work well with what. Next was a foi gras with an aspic jelly and gorgous apple tartin. Then a lobster and sweetbread mille feuille - would quite happily have finished then as it was so wonderful but still had a veal course with interesting veg to go before two chefs came in and presented a huge - not quite sure that cake does it the kind of justice it deserves - cake type wonder with sparklers blazing away at each corner. At this point I should say no one was standing by with fire extinguishers as I'm sure they would have been when I was in London a few days later and had a mini sparklet with a cocktail which was accompanied by a waiter ready to pounce and remove it as soon as it finished for health and safety reasons!!

Anyway the Parks concoctioon was amazing and had the suitable wow effect needed on NYEve!! We all received our portions with strawberries in an amazing sauce. Any and every request was immediately met with action and dealt with with no fuss despite how busy they all were. At this point any movement was an effort but we had to do our bit for internation relations and one of our party had an amiable dance off with one of the Russians. We Brits managed to baffle our continental cousins with Auld Lang Syne and then staggered up the stairs to bed.................a very happy bunny!!!
