This is a formal dining experience, but we found the staff very friendly and attentive, as you would expect. We had a set menu, but without any fuss they swapped one of the shellfish starters for pan fried goose liver, because I don't eat shellfish. We both found the brill dishes excellent. We were suprised by the wonderful combination of... More

We stayed in this restaurant's fabulous self-catering B&B townhouse, in the old part of town, just steps away from this restaurant. The concept of this B&B, called "The Herring's Residence", is novel and wonderful for those who enjoy complete privacy and do not mind preparing their own breakfast. The retro refrigerator is stocked with fresh bacon, prosciutto, various cheeses, eggs,... More

Delightful little restaurant with excellent service, friendly staff who were helpful with the menu (we being uncultured tourist who couldn't speak the language) and to food was superb. The lunchtime EURO39 menu was simply brilliant value given the quality of the food. We cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

An exquisite room and a very formal approach to the food as you would expect. The amusè bouches were plentiful & interesting - the standout was a marinated sardine in a beetroot puree. I would never have thought of that! I had the pheasant as a main course - very nice but a bit over engineered for my tastes. Not... More

Like the couple below, I did some research and picked one michelin starred restaurant to eat in for our four day trip. I was not disappointed! The restaurant was exactly how i'd expected it to be, classy and sophisticated nestled away in one of the quietest and most sought after streets in the city. The food was superlative.. the tastes...

While researching restaurants for our trip, I wanted to eat in 1 special, Michelin starred restaurant in each of the 3 cities that we would be traveling to. I was surprised to see so many options in Bruges. I expected a large number in London and Paris, but thought that a smaller city would be easier to choose from. I... More

A meal was booked months in advance for a special birthday surprise. We rang a few hours before to ask if we could possibly come a little later....the response was very rude "Hundreds of people have asked for a table today and being turned away!" "If you don't come we will charge 65euros per person!" We stated that we would... More

Like a previous reviewer, I don't understand why this restaurant is not much higher up the ratings list. The food is wonderful, the service is attentive, and, perhaps a little unusual for a Michelin starred restaurant, it's warm and friendly. This is a special place for a special occasion, where the evening is not just about the food, but the... More

This was recommended to us by a Belgian colleague.... we were not disappointed. The restaurant has a lovely feel to it; the service is first class; the food is wonderful and the wine list excellent. It's not cheap but top quality isn't. As a previous reviewer said 'well worth their Michelin Star'. The chef and owner came to see us... More
