Great mussels & fantastic service! Called in without a reservation around 5:30. It was busy, but we were offered a table for 3 upstairs. My husband & son had the white wine option and I had the tomato and basil, served with large portion of hot frites. Perfect!

We ate here last time we were in Brugge and we're glad we came back a second time. Food was lovely and plentiful and staff were friendly and helpful. Nice setting and also good desserts. Will be back next time we are in Brugge.

We came here after reading good reviews on the muscles. The restaurant is cozy and warm and the service was very good. We both ordered the muscles, I had the white wine and my husband the beer marinade. The muscles were good but the marinade wasn't as tasty as we had hoped. We weren't scooping it up at the end...

We were recommended this restaurant when back in England and we pre-booked before we came out. We were really looking for forward to having Mussels in Bruges and though it would be a great experience, however we left a bit disappointed. The restaurant itself is set over about 3 floors, with funky staircases to walk up. Toilets are nice on... More

Atmosphere wise, I feel like the half of the guests were Koreans so felt like I was in Korea. Price was alright, food was so-so. I wouldn't wait for an... More

Had a terrible experience, got embarrassed and asked to leave for not ordering enough food. We weren't given the chance to order more, nor we were made aware there was a minimum spend. The spineless manager couldn't say this to our face and got one of his/her employees to do it. I'm sure the food is nice but we walked... More

This is the quintessentially perfect choice for the Belgian experience of modules, frites and draft Belgian beer. Excellent atmosphere, very good service. A totally positive experience.
