"Steer clear of restaurants on the main square!", we were warned when we told friends we were going to Bruges. As it happens, we did end up at a restaurant on the main square. La Belle Vue looked nice and friendly and wasn't too busy on this Saturday evening. So why not, we asked ourselves. Sometimes you have to defy... More

So just how much is a view of Bruges Market Square worth ? The answer is two small cheese croquettes at £15 and a rubbery omelette at £12 . Its basically a pub and rather a nice one . Service was brisk and friendly and our overpriced snacks arrived well garnished . I tried hard to rationalise the exorbitant price... More

We visited with friends in January. The Belle Vue appears to be quite traditional, it is compact and retains some pleasant features. The barman was quite direct and not overly friendly. He did not seem to have much time to serve us in the fashion you come to expect of the bars and cafes in Bruges. Three of us ordered... More

We went in mid-afternoon in a group of 4. We ordered 3 drinks and guess what... The waiter very AGGRESSIVELY told us to leave because one of us didn't want anything. The coffee shop was empty.. Literally more than 10 tables available. It was not lunch/dinner time. By their rules if a single person in your group doesn't want a... More

A very convenient restaurant in the heart of the square. I ordered the mussels in garlic and a glass of peach beer. The food was okay nothing spectacular. A bit pricey but since you are in the tourist district, that is to be expected.

Went there for the mussels and a beer. Not the best, but the service and the location were spot on. The prices are a bit higher then the others but the location has it's price.

Very high prices for a low quality food. They charge any extra (for example sauce at 3,5€ or black coffe at 3,5€ too) A place to forgot!

My partner and I enjoyed a lovely meal here. I was feeling very indecisive and really couldn't choose what to eat, or where to go so my partner chose the Belle vue. It is a central location in the market square and so there are some lovely views if you have the right table. The menu is varied and the... More

Absolute rip off. We ordered a large beer as we have all weekend and we're given a stein without them explaining that this is what a large beer would be. It cost 14.45€ for 1 beer. The waiter was so rude the whole time we were there. We asked to borrow his pen and he said no as he thought... More
