My family and I went to this restaurant for dinner on our last night in Bruges. Let me start of by saying that if you are looking for a quick meal, DO NOT GO HERE. It took a while for us to even get our menus. It didn't take too long for them to bring out appetizers (after they gave us a complimentary carrot snack) , but then we waited a very long time to get our main courses. By the time they arrived we were not only annoyed, but we were also not hungry. Although the food was very good, we were unable to finish our meals because of the significant amount of time that had elapsed since we finished appetizers. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to linger over a very long meal.

I stopped in very late (after 10:00 p.m.) on a rainy night and as a single female diner but was made to feel very welcome and the menu still on offer at this late time of night was a full menu. The food was abundant and very delicious. The ambience was divine and just right. Clientele all appeared to be locals. The service was superb. Very comfortable seating. I would definately eat at this restaurant when in Bruges. Very excellent.

We ate here last week and it was the best of many good meals we had on our trip. This was recommended by another Bistro that was not open and had said that it is where they ate when they could. NO WONDER...

The food was fantastic. We had two fish and two steak dinners. The portions were much larger than we expected and prepared with such care that we ate every bite. From where we sat, we could see into the kitchen where we watched a very professional brigade move from plate to plate with such care and precision that we almost forgot to eat.
Very good value for money.

EAT HERE and you won't be disappointed.

We were slightly wary of a restaurant recommended by hotel, but we enjoyed Christophe's enough to want to return during our short stay. Staff were very friendly, remembering us from one visit to the next. The salmon,mashed potato and fennel dish with seafood sauce is one I'll remember for a long time, for all the right reasons. And that steaks are very, very good. As is the La Medulla red wine!

Make sure you book - as with most restaurants in Bruge - this was busy on both a Monday and Thursday evening. Would definitely make a point of going back if ever back in Bruge.

Best dinner experience ón our 4 days trip in Bruges due to The great atmosphere. Food is good and Price is reasonable.
We brought our three months old baby which wasnt a problem (generally accepted at reataurants in Bruges).
Food was served within reasonable time but at times difficult to get The waiters attention and there were a few slips with forgetting what was ordered. But overall a really good experience and Will Still recommend This place :-)
