We were a bit nervous about going to Tom's Diner after seeing some of the comments about poor, surly service. Well the reality could not have been more different. All the staff, especially Maxine were excellent and looked after us really well even though the...More

Busy restaurant and booking advised, although did manage to do this on the day. Helpful staff and good selection of dishes including vegetarian options. Nice open plan kitchen which was a nice touch.

Outstanding among the tourist dross that is all too common in Bruges . Good music playing at a reasonable level tells you on entry that this might be different! Simple food prepared very well. I had the pasta dish and my husband had the meatloaf....More
