Ate here for the first time on Dec10th. Lovely quiet restaurant with a family run feel. Welcoming staff and food that was cooked with a great balance and touch. Spare ribs were moist and with a fabulous marinade. The steak was tender, with great flavour. Price as very reasonable for the quality of food. Definitely will eat there again next... More

Whilst wandering around Bruges with friends we came across this restaurant on one of the squares. It was busy & we got the last table for four. A set menu du jour was ideal for lunch & was excellent value for money. The one waiter serving was very efficient & friendly. Several people arrived whilst we were eating & were... More

Went here for breakfast a couple of mornings, and as with most establishments in Brugge not being a a fan of continental breakfasts, I wasn't holding out much hope. However I was pleasantly surprised, with a varied menu and the ability to go 'off piste' and create your own dish, meant I was able to have exactly what I wanted.... More

Moules Frites with salad for me and steak and Frites for him, both beautifully cooked. Service efficient and friendly, ambience warm and stylish. Definitely the best in bruges, I spent a long time choosing where to go for lunch and definitely made a good decision.

A few very nice places to eat in the square. It connects you to the rest to the other squares with a very short walk. A peaceful place to just absorb the beauty of Brugges.

On a visit to Bruges recently, we were looking for a small late lunch and stumbled on Jan Van Eyck in a small square as we headed to see the Michelangelo. I had a bowl of onion soup and it was perfect! Not too sweet, not too thick, lovely flavor accompanied by cheesy baguette toast. Yum! Hubby had a Croque... More

We stumbled upon this place when looking for a bite to eat. It's a small place and most of the tables were full - this was a good thing. We got a table and we're given the menu with a wide choice of food. Our first visit we went for thr steak and chips (well when in Bruges) it was... More

We ended up here after walking the streets in Bruge and looking for lunch. Upon asking how big the portion was for the daily special, the waiter changed his tone and proceeded to tell me that each person needed to order something and that the prices were fair. I didn't even mention the price and the guy was trying to... More
