The waiter is very rude. Asking rude questions and not smile. Not worthy the money. The seafood is not very fresh. It's pricy!

We went just because it was handy and wished we had looked at reviews first! Food was okay, we had mussels (wasn't happy about the addition of carrots) and steak. The waiter was really rude and could not care less whether we had a good experience or not and oddly for February there were loads of flies.

Popped in here last week due to proximity of the hotel and didn't fancy walking too far in the snow, Reasonable food although limited menu, good service and decent bottle of wine all at a good price.

Stopped for coffee and to get out of the snow for a bit. Really good coffee and waffles. Staff efficient but not overly friendly... not nearly enough toilets for the size of the restaurant. Ok place

When you go to a fairytale place like Bruges, you'd most certainly want a nice, cozy meal to make your day even better. Tompouce is not the place to have that. Their soup tasted like those you buy in boxes at the supermarket. Carbonade flammande, a traditional beef stew, was ridiculously poor and service added nothing special to the experience.... More

Awful, overpriced sub standard food.. I had scampi and spent the evening and the next 2 days being very ill. Not a nice experience and definitely a tourist trap. STAY AWAY. These places should be shut down, they give Brugge a bad reputation.

The staff was friendly and very accommodating. They made it a point to say they had new management. The food tasted great and the price was reasonable. We were very comfortable on such a cold day!

The meal was set with aperitifs for Christmas Eve...however, they allowed you to order a la carte if desired...the location is lovely (and right near our hotel - Crowne Plaza). Several courses and an amuse bouche with drinks. Service was kind and professional. the location cannot be beat and I am sure in the summer the square is lively with... More

We were looking at the menu outside to see if there was anything suitable for the vegetarian in our party when a waiter came out to ask if he could help. He pointed out the one or two veggie dishes on the menu, and we decided to chance it. The food was nice, though like everywhere in Bruges it is... More

Rude rude rude!! The staff here are unbelievable ! I don't know whether it's because we are English or because they just have a diabolical attitude! Really wanted to try mussels as our first meal in Bruges. They were tasty but that was about the end of the positives here. I can't begin to explain the way we felt, uncomfortable... More

NEW OWNERS Classically stylisch bistro/restaurant with the best view in town. The large terrace offers a picture perfect view, looking out over the Burg square and its famous City Hall. Just next to the Basilica of the Holy Blood. Traditional cuisine, with famous local dishes. Magnificent interior with a mix of dark wood, copper and lace... A feast for all senses.
