We noticed this earlier on in our visit and we were impressed by the awards proudly displayed in the window of this small restaurant. It is only open certain days so check it out and book early. The decor is cosy and warming with a comfortable atmosphere making the inside very original and welcoming. We were greated with a lovely... More

Have lived in the Netherlands for years and have spent a lot of time in Belgium so I expected much more. When we complained that the food was really not good the hostess immediately exclaimed "the food isn't bad, you just don't like it". We never send food back, this was really quite extraordinarily bad and the reaction from the... More

We ate from the set menu (22.50 euros) on Saturday evening and loved it. Had the cheese croquettes, Flemish stew and the rice pudding (partner had the same but chocolate mousse for dessert), all of which were lovely - tasty, hot and nice portion sizes (not too big as wanted to enjoy the full 3 courses). Good selection of beers... More

Found this small restaurant. Cosy and comfortable. Atmosphere warm and quiet. Service was fast, but relaxed. Staff were nice, helpful, and friendly. Food and drink were excellent. Pricing was good. Well worth a visit !

Situated just off the Burg Square. Lovely Dinner in intimate surroundings. Belgian Beef Stew was lovely as were the meatballs and the Black Pudding, Great Service and warm ambience. Nothing whatsoever to complain about here. English menu available.

We arrived at this restaurant, more or less as it was opening on a recommendation. I found that service was a bit slow and the meal was ok, but nothing to write home about. It was a Flemish stew which I had, presented in a different way to what I had expected. I felt it was mimicking posh nosh in... More

This wasn't the highest rated restaurant on trip advisor, although it has 4.5 stars, but the set menus sounded interesting so we thought we'd try it. Plus, at 22.50€ each, this was half the price of many other restaurants in the city. We weren't disappointed- the food was delicious and exactly what we were after on a cold January evening....

We stumbled upon the Golden Fleece by accident as we walked along the back streets of Bruges and were very happy that we did. It is a small bistro type establishment, fairly dark inside and rather olde worldy in character. The waitress (owner I think) was very friendly and gave us a table as far away as possible from some... More

Me and my wife happened across this place by chance and thought we'd give it whirl. We weren't let down the food was excellent, the service was good without being all over you and good selection of beer, not the biggest, but quality stuff. We'll definitely be visiting again next time were in bruges.

Meal was not up to scratch our sirloin was very tough. The weather was hot in Bruges but it was very stuffy. Only one waitress on had to keep asking for drinks and to be served.
