My wife and I and another couple booked dinner on Friday 25th November and we're glad we did. From the second we entered until will left everything was perfect. It's all too easy these days to have 'average' service and 'excellent' food, or vice-versa, however, at de Bocarme we knew our evening was going to be good at the greet... More

We found this restaurant via Tripadvisor. The kitchen is in the same room as the dining guests. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. We ordered carpaccio of beef for starters and sole fish for main dish, both à la carte Both dishes were very nice, brought as they should be. As desert I had a Swan of ice with... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Brugge. The food was delicious (I had the goat cheese salad, Irish beef, and Swan dessert). The atmosphere was unique as it is downstairs in an old wine cellar. The service 10/10. Great dinner!

We ate here for Christmas Eve dinner. Portions were decent sized and delicious. The setting was very mellow and nice. It was a tad tricky to find as it is in the basement and on Christmas Eve there is not a lot of things open to ask for directions. We almost missed our reservation. Thankfully when we called lost they... More

Worth popping in to this lovely cellar restaurant for some good quality food and wine at a decent price. We had fish. Very tasty and well presented. Verry friendly owner! Good for reasonable sized group.

Patrick the owner was extremely friendly and attentive. The food, that we had all pre-ordered, was absolutely fabulous. Could not fault anything. A gem of a restaurant in Bruges and a must-try if you possibly can.
