The restaurant was highly recommended by our friend who lives in Bruges. We had high expectations which were unmet. Food was good but service was lacking. No wine list or beer list. Very limited menu. As Americans we felt unwelcome. The manager/owner/restaurant VIP visited the...More

We shared the mussel appetizer, I had the filet, she the tuna. Both outstanding. Pepper sauce is not to be missed! Very nice small restaurant a ways away from the craziness of central Brugge.

This little masterpiece is the new hotspot in town. Centrally located, only 250m away from the Main Square, it offers healthy superfoods prepared in a Josper Brasa Oven. People who just like to come for a drink can enjoy this monument that dates back to the 14th century. The central theme is the racing pigeon. Besides beer and chocolate one of Belgium's most famous export products.
