Everything about this little gem in Bruges is spectacular: the atmosphere, the wait staff, the fabulous manager Axel and, of course, the food. We snagged a last minute Saturday night reservation and were given a gorgeous table in the middle of the room so we could take in the French ambiance; and were treated beautifully by the engaging staff, especially our Albanian born waiter who was so intelligent and engaged us in a truly eye opening conversation about WWI and his part of the world (at our urging). The food was perfection, from plating and presentation, freshness and flavor. We chose the 74 Euro each tasting menu including wines and each dish was better than the next. The wine pairings were also perfect. We felt special all night long and we'll never forget beautiful Bruges or our great night at Park. One of the best dining experiences in a life full of great dining experiences, lucky us...

We visited the Park restaurant again this year, for our 30th wedding anniversary. After visiting last year we knew this was where we wanted to celebrate our milestone!

Axel and his team are very professional and extremely friendly. The restaurant has a very relaxing atmosphere. We believe Axel's brother is the chef and should be complimented for the delicious food served. The amuse bouche was lovely. We decided to have the a la carte menu. My husband said his scallops in white wine were excellent - he loved the sauce. My brown shrimp fritters were lovely. The lamb dish was beautiful and cooked medium as we had ordered. The crepe suzettes were delicious. Coffee and chocolate were lovely. Just perfect in every way and beautifully presented.

The champagne and wines in the wine package were lovely and excellent value. We really enjoyed them.

The rooms in the restaurant are beautiful. We stayed in one of the guest rooms and at breakfast were able to appreciate just how lovely they are. You don't always realise this in a restaurant when the lighting is dimmed. Axel's mum is lovely too and it was interesting to learn a little about the building.

We were sad to leave but left with fond memories. Thank you.

We had a lovely evening at the Park restaurant in Bruges it was our twentieth wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was relaxed yet very elegant. The food and wine was delicious and the staff were attentive without being overbearing. We had the all inclusive package with wine @ 75 Euros each. It was great value for money and we will definitely return when we visit Bruges again. Highly recommended!

We had a lovely meal at the Park on our first night in Bruges (1st Aug 14).
It was a warm night and we had a drink and our appetisers outside in the garden before venturing inside for dinner, which I think is a must, although didn’t seem to be to be the norm it added to the experience.
The atmosphere in the Park was perfect and very relaxed and friendly despite the elegant and very sophisticated setting. The staff were superb and set the tone perfectly. The food was absolutely exquisite; as it was a Friday we had the €40 set menu but decided to pay the extra for the lobster starter, which was amazing and well worth the extra €. With wine and our supplementary choices and tip our bill was €150, which was well worth it. I would definitely go again and have already recommended to friends.
