Fodor's Expert Review Gruuthuse Hof

$$ Bruges and the Coast Belgian Fodor's Choice
Dining here is almost a prerequisite for visiting Bruges, and while it's well known to tourists, don't let that put you off. A menu of solid Belgian favorites (with a particularly good seafood selection) is served at this third-generation family-run restaurant, and each dish is prepared with consummate skill. This is among the city's oldest restaurants, having occupied the same spot since 1751. The old wood-beamed ceiling is the only indication of its past, as attempts have been made to add a whisper of modernity to its setting. Luckily, it still retains its formal dining area and a strong dose of old-world charm.
