Fodor's Expert Review Spinola

$$$ Bruges European

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

This canal-house restaurant by the Jan van Eyck statue is a real charmer---from an intimate main dining room, an iron staircase leads to the upper tables; the open kitchen is in back. Here, chef-owners Sam and Vicky Storme cook up rich Burgundian cuisine: fresh game, goose liver, fabulous mussels, pigeon with truffles. Service can be a little on the brusque side, but dinner by candlelight is the ultimate extravagance, with a choice of some 300 wines.
