We went here as it is close to my mother-in-laws home and acts as a local. In the summer we like to sit outside and watch the world go by. You also have a view of the canal. They offer a good selection of reasonably priced drinks. We enjoyed sitting there and our drinks so much that we decided to... More

The location is very nice, quiet and relaxing. We had the cheapest Leffe's in town. The downside is the people that run it. Not very friendly and we didn't feel welcome on both occasions. Maybe they don't like English people on holiday and feel better with other Europeans and locals.

Have used this place regularly for about 5 yrs as i stay in Brugge for work several times a year the beer and food all all good, none of the touristy' nonsence that can found in the city. Always a nice atmosphere a good indication is that the locals use it as aregular drinking spot.

Dined here on our final evening in Bruges last weekend, as it was conveniently located around the corner from Hotel Fevery where we stayed. This Bistro really is a little gem. Very relaxed atmosphere, with unfussy friendly service. The Tapas was very reasonably priced with generous portions and if the food ordered by other diners tasted as good as it... More

Called in here for a beer and snack. Picturesque little pub with great beer and relaxed atmosphere. Located by the canal with friendly service and reasonable prices. Perfect

Attempted to visit this place on 6 or 7 occasions, at various times of day and on different days. On a couple of occasions the hosts were sat in the garden, but signalled to say they were closed. A large signs states that they open when they feel like it, but are open more often than not, I would change... More

The outside was so darn cute that I said we need to eat here. The owners are friendly and service was fast. It is a limited menu but what there is, is very good. I had the spaghetti w/ bolognese sauce and a warm wine - which was great after wondering around on a cool, rainy day. My husband had... More

We found this wonderful bistro and visited it every day of our visit for lunch or coffee. The staff were very welcoming and efficient and served great food. It's in a great location, right by the Carmers Bridge - a perfect stop on a walk to or from the windmills. Highly recommend.

If you stay at the Adornes this is a great little cafe to sit and have a drink and a snack. Off the main square so prices are very reasonable.

A small cafe/bistro on the corner of Genthof and Langerei in Bruges. Serves limited menu of well-cooked food - good for a light lunch - excellent range of beers. Reasonably priced and we had a warm welcome on a very wet day which was lovely.
