Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent food and service. Had not been here in a few years, and it seemed better than before! Started off with a cold Brugse Zot beer, which arrived with 2 spicy shrimp in a glass!! Nice touch. Ordered the 69€ pix fixed menu...frogs legs appy, grilled shrimp entree, profiteroles for dessert. All came with an aperitif of cava. Delicious. Fresh baked bread was a plus. It was the best Irish coffee I've ever had...for real. €95 total incl 2 large beers. It's totally worth it and recommended. Reservations are a must as it's a small place. Restaurant is cozy, gas fireplace, holiday decorated. Staff top notch.

All round a great restaurant, I visited with my girlfriend and it was a small, cosy and intimate setting, great for couples or small groups. Traditional decor gave it a homely dining room feeling, the two waitresses offered a fantastic service. I started with the cheese croquettes, simple but finished to perfection, light breadcrumbs and a seasoned salad. For main, the t-bone steak (côte à l'os, as it is on the menu), was problably the best I've ever had cooked to perfection with a beautiful grilled flavour - amazing with peppercorn sauce! Would totally reccomend while you're in Bruges for a fantasitc meal at a reasonable price!

We came across this restaurant just by chance and decided to make a reservation for that same evening. It is located close enough to downtown Brugge but it requires a bit of walking to reach it. It is housed in an old house (or at least it looks like it). The menu is varied and has got some Flemish dishes. Service is very efficient and the decor is rather traditional, in line with what is expected from this restaurant. We enjoyed a rather romantic dinner and left very satisfied.

We ate here on our recent trip to Bruges and enjoyed an excellent meal. This restaurant is clearly focussed on serving top class food in an intimate setting. This made an excellent contrast to some of the very good bistro style restaurants in Bruges. My ribeye steak with Roquefort sauce with frites was excellent. The steak was chargrilled, cooked to perfection and very flavoursome. When the food arrived at the table you just knew it was going to be a special meal. My daughter also opted for the steak and was very happy with the choice. My wife's scallops were also very good as well. The carafe of red wine was served at the correct temperature and went very well with the steak. I opted for the trio of sorbets for desert which was an excellent contrast to the steak and the quality was again very good. My wife was very pleased with her Creme Brulee as well. This was an excellent meal which was a fitting way to end a few wonderful days in Bruges.

We reserved a table for 9:00 p.m. and when we went to the restaurant they told us that they close at 9:30 p.m. and they can only serve us a main course. I don't understand how they allow you to reserve a table at 9:00 p.m. when they work until 9:30 p.m. The restaurant smells very badly of a sewer. The staff was inhospitable and we did not like the attitude at all.

Excellent meal in a popular restaurant. We booked in advance and glad we did as the place was completely full. This is not a place for a quick meal. The service is very good and it is reassuring that each dish is cooked individually and with care. There are some moments on "slow" service but I'd prefer they take care, rather than rush- i came here to enjoy the food and atmosphere

A wonderful building with lots of atmosphere. I had researched “traditional” Belgian dishes and was delighted to find more than one on the menu. However Monday is not the best day for any restaurant and there was only one portion of the eel in green sauce left, and my second choice the pork cheek was also not available. I had the eels…… not the tastiest, but the green sauce added the extra flavour needed. This dish was not, in any way, disappointing. I wanted to try it. I ate it all. The staff were welcoming and didn’t mind my asking questions about the items on the menu. An interesting restaurant where everything was high quality. I will certainly return.

Probably the high point of a trip filled with great dining in both Amsterdam and Bruges. The charm and distinctiveness of the place itself, the historic home of the renowned Flemish painter of the same name; the friendly, casual service; and of course a menu that was carefully curated, smallish, but altogether memorable. We started with a sensational beef carpaccio appetizer, and both of us ordered the lobster and seafood stew. If you're a shellfish person, order it! Do not hesitate! We were surprised to discover that lobster is local. A spectacular, luscious, meal that transported us...we felt that we really experienced Flemish fine dining. Reservation is necessary. You will love Pieter Pourbus. A definite hit in Bruges!

We stumbled across Pieter Pourbus on our first night in Bruges, and in writing this review several days later as we depart this beautiful town, it remains the best meal we had during our stay. My husband and I loved the classy decor, and the service was extremely friendly/helpful even though we both only speak English. The food was very high quality - both the steak and the fish main meals were exceptional and have us both looking fondly back on our experience. The beer and wine list was also generous meaning that everyone can find something to their liking on the menu. Highly suggest basing a night in Bruges around dining here, we loved it.

I’m sure it’s just as lovely in the Summer but it was beautifully cosy and welcoming. Don’t expect your food to arrive on the table minutes after you order, this is a proper restaurant. They cook the food for you. Tasty game and silky scallops. Don’t know how my son managed to have the profiteroles but he couldn’t resist - he said they were well worth it. If I had to have a moan it would be the tiny amount of bread you were given. They need to sort that out.

Wonderful food. Had the Crown of lamb and it was superb! My husband had the scallops and they were equally superb. Don’t know how you’d rank this restaurant less than 5 stars! They serve a gazpacho shot in between and even the bread was yummy. No room for dessert. So good highly recommend

We had been recommended this restaurant by a colleague from work who told me she'd had the best steak she'd ever eaten here! After our visit I can say that she was not over reacting, the steak was sublime 😋. But not just the steak, everything was wonderful, the staff were friendly and attentive and we would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone who is visiting Bruges. Amazing!

A most amazing meal with my two brothers on our short break to Bruges. We had the 69 euro menu with glass of spumante to start. I then had the scallops followed by the crown of lamb, finishing with the homemade profiteroles stuffed with ice cream. Every mouthful was a total delight. Both my brothers had the steak which was suburb. Wonderful ambiance and attentive friendly staff. This traveller can thoroughly recommend Pieter Pourbus for an excellent dinner in Bruges.

First time we had eaten at this restaurant. The food was excellent. We started with asparagus with smoked salmon, very tasty. I then had grilled langoustines with a spicy sauce and rice, my husband had cod fillet with mashed potatoes and a cream sauce. The flavours were superb, we were served by a very efficient waitress, we shall definitely be going back!

We decided to follow the set menu reasonably priced at around euro 65. First course of scallops perfectly cooked in a delicious sauce. Mains was Hereford steak which was superb. Very tasty and melted in the mouth. To accompany there was a side salad, fries and a homemade burnoose sauce. Desert was ice cream profiteroles with a warm chocolate sauce. Washed down with a very decent Malbec altogether an excellent meal.
