We needed a spot for a light lunch while wandering around Bruges, and happened upon Aquarel. Nice salad selection, and other non-standard items so many brassierries serve through Belgium. Waitress was very nice, and attentive, and we promptly ordered a nice house wine, and salads....More

We had lunch at Aquarel with the family during our visit in Bruges. Location is nice in the middle of typical town square. We ordered "moules et frites" they were delicious. Service available and kind to suit our Request.
