Was a pleasant enough evening, and the staff were friendly and quick but the food just didn't live up to expectations. The pate starter was little more than a slab accompanied by gherkins and the bread and olives pre-meal where nothing more than a pre-sliced loaf. When the main course of a mixed grill came, it was fine but that's... More

Was in Bruges in October and went here on our first night for dinner, it is a traditional old restaraunt. They offer a 3 course set menu for 25 euros and it had good choice. I tried mussels for my starter in garlic and they were really good (never had them before) we both had the Flemish stew for our... More

Having read previous reviews we opted on this restaurant and I can happily day we weren't disappointed. As a party of 3 we decided to try as many dishes as possible. The restaurant offered a 'regional' 3 course set menu. My guests choose game pate and garlic scampi. I must say the scampi was actually king prawns but the dish... More

While on our tour of Bruge we had lunch at Max's, sitting outside on a beautiful sunny afternoon. The restaurant did not disappoint with excellent service and food and a wonderful location. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

My wife and I went to Maximiliaan’s at the recommendation of a friend who has visited Bruges several times. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is located near a canal and the entrance to the Begijnhof Convent. The atmosphere in the restaurant is warm and inviting. We ordered a sirloin steak for two. Our waiter-cum-chef came with a MASSIVE piece... More

I visited Maximiliaan Van Oostenrijk with my wife Erica and 14 family and friends at the end of September. It was my wife's 60th birthday and I had contacted the restaurant previously to see if they could arrange a special birthday cake surprise. We were not disappointed. Excellent birthday cake. We all had a superb meal and all the staff... More

A delight to visit this drinking house/restaurant again. Nice to stop for a cold beer but also a pleasant way to pass an evening outside watching the world (and the horse drawn carriages) going by. The food is always good. The garlic mussels were a delight and the mixed grill almost defeated me. Good value too. Nice to return to... More

We both had the vegetarian wok dish for dinner on a Saturday night which was quite good actually, The wait staff were mixed - one was helpful and the other grumpy and not accommodating (refused to split check for us: "no - I'm too busy") 9.5 eur for a 1L bottle of San Pellegrino is outrageous, but I guess is...

You do pay for the location here, but isn't that true for anywhere as special as this location? We sat outside on the bridge side, and had a gorgeous lunch last weekend. I started with fresh oysters, which were exceptional, and the rest of our meal was quite good as well. Service was very efficient, and we will definitely be... More
