It is a typical restaurant in Europe. The problem being there is so little space that you can hear the conversation at the next table. There was only one server for the whole restaurant. The food was good but would of liked a more private setting for our table.

This is a quiet, family run restaurant which serves extraordinarily good food. The service is handled professionally and elegantly by, I believe, one of the owners. I can only echo what the other reviewers have said before, It's really well done, the only issue was just how expensive it was, for example, 2 entrees, 4 mains, two beers and a... More

Delicious food and attentive service. This small restaurant is owned and managed by a charming couple; he cooks and she ( suspiciously thin for a chef's wife!) handles front of house

This gem of a restaurant was recommended by our hotel. My wife and i were welcomed into this charming restaurant by our hostess and her 10 year old, charming daughter. In a restored old house in Bruges, you felt like a guest at someone's home. The menus was excellent, the food terrific and the warmth of the experience is with... More

The place is picture perfect and one of my go to places in Bruges. It seems like everything comes together, romance, perfect food and wine pairings and just a great atmosphere. What my favorite restaurant needs to be. Brava!

What a great place to have a meal! It is a family business and I mean really a family business as the beautiful young daughter served us at one point; brilliant. That said the food was very good and there was a number of meat dishes as well as fish. We thought we knew a few gins but the local... More

My wife and I dined here while in Bruges. The restaurant is quite small, and seats about 18 diners. The owners are the chef and his wife who serve the customers. They specialize in sea food essentially. The food was delicious. Service was attentive and pleasant. It was an extremely enjoyable evening and I can heartily recommend coming here for... More

This was easily the finest meal I ate in Brugge. Very small..20 seats. I had lamb for my main & it was perfectly prepared. I would rate these chops as excellent. Others enjoyed hen, mussels & sole. Everyone wants to go back for more. Family operated with mother offering service, father as chef and adorable young daughter helping until her... More

Everything about this small restaurant was excellent: the food (we chose the a la carde menu), the setting, the service. We would definitely visit again!

We were recommended the Restaurant Couvert by staff at the hotel in which we were staying. It was only a short walk away so was very convenient. The owner was very welcoming and friendly and the restaurant was small and well appointed. We chose the 4/5 course menu which was accompanied by different wines which were described by the owner....
