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.

We made reservations twice the day before. The reservation was confirmed via email. Shortly before dinner, the reservation was canceled and the restaurant was not able to seat us. Worst customer service experience so far in Belgium

Out of this world lunchtime menu. Great 2 course meal full of flavour and beautifully presented. Also incredible value and the wines served by the glass really nice too.

As we walked through Bruges looking for somewhere to eat we came to De Gouden Kroes. It looked nice through the window. Tidy and professional would perhaps describe it. There were only 3 occupied tables , which made us wonder why? However, the menu looked...good and as a lover of seafood it hit the spot for me. I’m going to keep this short now. The decor was tasteful and pleasant. The staff did their job well; But the food…. I had bouillabaisse it was frankly stunning. It genuinely was absolutely beautiful. I can say no more than that. Bruges itself is worth revisiting but even if the place had been awful then this bouillabaisse would be worth going back for on it’s own. Absolute top class seafood cookery.More

It was a surprise to taste such good fish soup in this establishment. Their fish soup is simply amazing and very delicious. The restaurant is well located, in a shopping street. This restaurant is well worth discovering.

Exceptional meal! We went for the seafood platter for two and it was delicious. Friendly staff and good service. One of the best meals we’ve ever had!

Went there for a seafood lunch, was put off by indifferent service, uncaring staff, no eye contact. Complained about salt coming out of a shaker in a stream, which overpowered my soup – and got yelled at by a waiter. Perhaps such manners work in...his far-away mountain village, but not in Belgium. Left without finishing lunch. Disgusting.More

Used trip advisor to pinpoint the best rated mussel dinners in Bruges. De Golden Kores was only one min walk from the hotel. Interesting first iimpression! Our reservation was for 6PM. At 5:55 the door was locked and no lights on! At 5:58 a staff...person arrives and opens the door! That aside, the service and seafood was great! My mussels seemed a bit pricy, but the Serving was huge! Probably 4 dozen count. I had the natural preparation,which is onion and celery. Totally different than I ever experience before.. My wife's Sole was also excellent,but with rib bones,if they bother anyone!More

We were a group of 8 persons, seating on a table in the basement. We ordered quite early and had to wait more than 1,5 hour for our meals. In the meatime, other clients who arrived and ordered after us were already served! The staff...didn't paid attention to our requests, until one of my friends went upstairs and complained, asking how long we'd still have to wait. A few minutes later we finally got our food, and to my point of view it was of average quality, considering the price and the long waiting time. It was a disappointing experience for me and my friends, and it seems that other clients in the restaurant also had the same issues. All clients should be treated equally and deserve a good, friendly service.More

We had to wait more than 2 hours for our food without anybody telling us it will take some time, and the food wasn't even good for a plate worth 55 €. Their excuse for the terrible service: it's a restaurant, it's Saturday evening and...we are a party of eight. What???More

Sadly, we were so looking forward to our seafood plates here tonight! The waiter was (not rude) but not interested in our existence there at all…I speak English and German…but he didn’t seem to care either way how we felt about our meals, wine, NOTHING!...If you are going to pay these prices for a nice atmosphere and dinner, I would go elsewhere so you feel welcomed and comfortable- instead we left 100 euros poorer and a lump in our chest from feeling so insignificant. “The Americans” table of 2More

We tried to go for lunch here with our two daughters (both small but well behaved) and although the restaurant looks beautiful and was immaculately clean the women running it were so incredible rude! If they had just said they don’t accept children I would...have understood instead there were mixed messages with one saying there was no service, the other saying we needed to wait half an hour. They were brusque, told me I was in the way and to get out of their restaurant. Just be honest with people and say you don’t allow children on your restaurant rather than being rude. We would have gone and spent a decent amount of money but they were so miserable I would never recommend this to anyone with children. We went round the corner to Breydel de Conine who were super accommodating and we had a fantastic lunch.More
