I'm still sitting in this restaurant and i haven't paid the bill yet, but I'm still so delighted about the Carbonades I've just had that i would definitely recommend it. Away from the most touristic places it could seems like a gamble, but you will leave happy!

Don't make the same mistake as us, we were persuaded to book here by the strong recommendation of our B+B host and we fell into the tourist trap. Service was cursory at best. Two slices of bread were thrown onto the table in a paper bag with a pat of butter in a sealed plastic pot, we have had better... More

What a delightful restaurant. Beautiful facade and intimate and cosy inside. Very nice, friendly and helpful staff - had a long chat to one staff member who had been to Australia. The food was super - the Flemish Beef Stew was amazing. Finished off with homemade ice cream. Enjoyable meal in cute surroundings.

Visited this place on the 25th of February. The welcome was fine, however we were seated upstairs and menus were almost thrown at us by a young jack black looking fellow. We proceeded to order from the pricey menu which included 2 bottles of water for the table at 4 euros for 500ml. When we were given our cutlery the... More

We were recommended this restaurant by friends and were really looking forward to an authentic Flemish meal. The waiter who showed us to our table was very friendly and pleasant, and if he served us all evening, we probably would have had a great evening. Unfortunately he did not, and as a consequence our evening was not that great. The... More

My husband and I went here for dinner our first night in Bruges. I'm vegetarian and was excited to see they had a goat cheese and honey salad on their menu that I could have since my husband was super eager to go here for their beef stew (stoofvlees). To my happy surprise, they offered to make me a sautée... More

Great friendly service, explained menu and recommended beers from their vast selection. The food was excellent, we stuffed ourselves on waterzooi, Flemish Fries, a beautiful goat cheese and strawberry salad. We sat outside, but inside seemed cozy and warm. Robert the pug was endlessly entertaining.

As Bruges residents, we often take our overseas visitors to the Vlaamsche Pot so that they have the chance to sample typical Flemish cuisine. The decor, ambiance and service are all lovely and we've never been disappointed. Last weekend was about our 10th visit and the high standard of food continues to this day. Our American guests thought the food... More

We came upon this restaurant whilst walking back to our hotel. As it was particularly cold and we'd heard about the flemish stew we decided this place looked warm and cosy of particular tradition. We were not disappointed. The place had a good buzz and the quirky decor and large fires made it very welcoming. We had already decided we... More

Waiter was quite unhelpful if not offending. I have just had an operation should could not eat, we were a party of 3 and wanted to order 2 starters and main courses as I barely can eat. The manager was abnoxious and intimidating refusing saying we had to order 3 main courses as "it was the law" or leave. Felt... More
