Friendly service and fantastic food, in a room that feels slightly stuffy when you first enter but is absolutely not. All of the dishes were great, and looked very pretty

We decided to come to Den Gouden Harynck as a recommendation from a relative who absolutely loved the place and was up there as one of their top restaurants, so as foodie lovers we decided to take their recommendation. First things first, the food was great and I can't take anything away from that. But the service and atmosphere was... More

Had a great dinner here. Very cozy setting. Tried the 5 course tasting menu. It was mainly seafood dishes and they all tasted delicious. We did not try the cheeses but the cheese cart looked really awesome. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

I had the pleasure to re-discover one of Bruges stars Den Gouden Harynck, moreover it turned out to be a birthday threat. So I’m having a fine lunch with a good friend in an authentic 17th century house.We singled out the lunch menu which consists of a starter, a main dish and a dessert for a very reasonable €45. The...

We had booked this restaurant as a special treat on a weekend in Bruges, and it was nice but not excellent. We felt like we had done something wrong, with people seated opposite us who had arrived after us, we treated to menus/bread/drinks the minute they arrived, with us waiting to get someones attention. Also was slightly annoyed that i... More

This classic restaurant serves traditional French cuisine, using the best fresh ingredients and a touch of fresh herbs and spices. We enjoyed a four course dinner of lobster, coquilles with cauliflower, sole (I do not eat meat, but I do eat fish at some occasions - which was correctly dealt with) or hare, and a lovely dessert of figs, almond...

We had booked a reservation at the restaurant some time ago, they confirmed via email so we then arranged our travel to get to, and stay in Bruges. When we arrived at the restaurant a rather unpleasant lady told us that we did not have a reservation, and that they had emailed me the day before to let me know.... More

Andy Sarney was looking forward to this special meal with his wife on a trip to Bruges. When he arrived,despite having booked the Golden Herring several months in advance, because he had not replied to an email the previous day double checking the reservation the booking had been cancelled by the restaurant. Special trip ruined and the restaurant was intransigent... More

Beautiful food, exceptional service and an extensive choice of wine for a very reasonable price. We chose this venue to celebrate our last night in Bruges as part of our honeymoon and we were certainly not disappointed.

Thank Paul and Samant... J
