We had a pleasant, tasty lunch at this bistro, which was located at the junction of three main streets. The only drawback was the fact that, although we ate inside, where smoking is not permitted, the front door was wide open, which allowed cigarette smoke from those at outside tables to enter.

We were lucky to be seated because they prefer reservations due to the limited seating. We only wanted soup and a beer for a light quick lunch. The owner was very gracious, the soup was delicious and the beer refreshing. We were seated next to the gas fireplace which felt good on a chilly day. Although we didn't eat much,... More

The restaurant was cozy and located in the lovely area, not far from the heart of the city. Not many dining tables in the restaurant so the reservation is needed. The service was nice and we could ask for an English menu. I had scampi for starter and trout with almonds for main dish, both were tasty. Shrimps in scampi... More

We tried to eat here when we first visited Bruges, but it was fully booked for weeks, so we made sure we booked in advance the second time around, and I'm so glad we did - it's a wonderful little restaurant. The food was just amazing, and the service was very good too. Highly recommended!

As a group of 5 friends we wanted somewhere good to eat during our night out in Bruges and were delighted with this choice. It is small and so is essential to book in advance, Do not be put off by the rather hostile website, it is worth pursing it and making a phone call to book. And the welcome... More

I honestly believe that I had one of the tastiest meals I have ever had at Gruuthuse Hof - three courses, all off their set tourist menu, priced at under €20pp. I had the most delicious tomato soup, followed by a steak, followed by profiteroles, accompanied by a local beer. Everything was absolutely delicious. What is more, the service was... More

Book to avoid disappointment, we booked the day before. The restaurant itself is small and intimate which is really nice particularly for couples but obviously means they book up fast. We got a seat by the window which is great for people watching as the restaurant sits right next to the church Onze Lieve Vrouw. Staff were great, very welcoming... More
