We went for lunch to De Mangerie and were very disappointed: We came pretty late but the waitress told us we could come back in 15 mines as one tabel was ready to pay their bill and there would be a free table again. We agreed to come back, told her that we would take a drink in the street... More

It was a very bad experience. Started good, the interior and musing was good. But everything else was too bad. First we found a piece of plastic in the appetizer. Then there was a ladybug on the table and midge on the bread. We told the waiter about the plastic, she just said "oh, sorry" and forgot about that. We... More

De Mangerie Brugge offers good tasty food with friendly service from the owners. Set on one of Brugge's quieter streets this restaurant attracts the eye with a light open interior. With a relatively small number of tables the place is homely and service friendly. In fact we had a good chat with the owner and this made the evening for... More

We went there only because it has Michelin star, and as most of the restaurants with Michelin quality standards we were expected the adequate level of food quality and service. We were very wrong. The food was limited to only one pre-fix menu, the steak I've got was cold and without any flavors, and the service took awfully long. Not... More

This was recommended by a friend who has visited Bruges in 2015- I was also told that certain members of the Belgium royal family have frequented there. The manageress and her spouse were charming , the chef was top notch, the paintings on the wall very chic ( ESP Monroe and Sinatra ) .. And the food was wonderful .,... More

We are there with friends and had an enjoyable, tasty meal. The service was attentive and we enjoyed the chef's wife's humour. This was the most innovative food we ate in Bruges.

Bruges is not exactly a gastronomical venue- in fact the food is pretty boring, the same thing is served in all the tourist outlets and not at all exciting. We were wowed to find this place. OK - its not cheap but the atmosphere was lovely and we arrived at opening time on a weekday evening. Our hostess was charming... More

We had diner here tonight. We had the tasting menu. It was great and very nice. Pure tasts and quality. It is a nice small restaurant. The only minus is the quality of the coffee. My espresso was far too big and tastes like bitter water. For the rest it was perfect.

We found this place by chance on a Saturday afternoon. Attracted by the Michelin guide stickers we popped in and booked a table for that evening. On arrival the Maître D checked our reservation, gestured us vaguely towards the half empty main dining area and then disappeared, leaving us to hang up our own coats and guess which table had...
