Trip Report Bruges restaurants

Jump to last reply

I've been going to Europe for about 25 years and when I was younger I relished fancy meals, long tasting menus, staying at a chateau that had a cooking school, etc. Now I prefer bistro-style food. Here are four places that fit that bill in Bruges. They won't please everyone, but I had good food at each one:

Sint-Barbe, 't Schrijverke, Vissinghe (500 years old), Old Bruges at the Vismarkt. One note about the latter: it's something of a tourist trap in the sense that they charge for bread. However, I didn't order any, and after a few meals there (and speaking Flemish), they offered me bread for free. The staff was very friendly. I went because it was close to my B&B and went back because the food was good.

Expense? My most expensive dinner was about 40 Euros, but that was aperitif, pichet of wine, main course with frites and salad, dessert and coffee. Lunch was typically 20 euros or less.

I stopped at other places for a drink or coffee, and also tried Chez Vincent, but it was on my first day, I think, and I don't remember much. Except the stairs were really steep. :-) But the view of the square it's on was lovely. Worth a visit.

Sint-Barbe was my favorite and I'd go straight there my first night back.
