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.

What a treat to find a restaurant that is equally as enthusiastic about vegetarian food as non vegetarian food. The vegetarian food was top class and the accompanying wine was of a high standard. Service was spot on. A very memorable evening.

We went quite early on a Monday evening and so almost had our own private restaurant for the first hour. My wife and I ate from the 4-course seasonal menu and I can happily say that the food and service were excellent. The wine selected...to go with the starter and main courses was also very good. All in all, and excellent place to go for a meal.More

We stumbled upon this place after mistakenly not planning our Friday night dinner in Bruges a few weekends ago. Thankfully the restaurant had a no-show (thankfully for us!!) So they were able to slot us in. The food was INCREDIBLE. We went for the 5...course taster menu with paired wines, and it was really delicious. Cedric, front of house, made the experience for us by talking us through each course and spending time with us at the end of the evening. We had the best evening and were so lucky to have been able to be seated. Strong recommendation to book a table!! Thank you for such a lovely evening, we really enjoyed ourselves.More

I discovered Réliva while researching restaurants that offered vegetarian and/or vegan food in Bruges and I wanted somewhere unusual for a birthday celebration meal. Lien (the chef) and Cedric (front of house) delivered an unbelievable experience with extraordinary food and faultless service. My partner and...I both went for the five-course vegetarian tasting menu with the matching wine pairing. It's hard to pick one course out as they were all so incredible but the Lion’s mane, Vin jaune, mushroom sauce, celeriac starter and the Pumpkin, smoked sweet potato, potato confit, chervil main course were total stand-out dishes. If I ever go back to Burges a visit to Réliva will be on the itinerary.More

We have been coming to Reliva for dinner for several years and each time the food gets better, excellently presented, fabulous taste and texture and just the right portion size for a multiple course dinner with wonderfully paired wines. We ate the 5 course seasonal...dinner with wine pairing. That the whole restaurant is run by a young couple is hard to believe, you are welcomed as a friend, served wonderfully, each dish and wine explained, and the young lady chef is the best. A must if you visit Brugges.More

My wife and I had dinner here while on vacation in Bruges. You definitely need a reservation which was easy to make online. This is a small restaurant and the dining experience is not rushed in any way with plenty of time to enjoy the...culinary experience offered by each course. The atmosphere is relaxed and very soothing. The menu had a choice of 3, 4 or 5 courses. We chose the 4 course and enjoyed each one as they were brought out and Cedric explained Chef Lien’s creations. We tried a small batch Belgian gin as a pre meal drink and then went with the wine pairings and loved them all. We had a choice from the menu of a vegetarian, fish or chicken main course. The courses were all fresh and seem to change daily. We had a fantastic dinner and we would highly recommend this restaurant to couples or families with older children. If you are a foodie you will love dining here.More

Wonderful experience! The beautiful and clever flavour combinations, the great use of seasonal produce and the nicely flexible menu all made for a top class dining experience.

Wow! And wow again! Oh, did I mention - wow!!!! Honestly this is one of my most favorite places in the world to eat! We had the 5 courses and each dish was sublime! Wonderful service from the young waiter /owner who knew every detail...of every dish and never lost his cool despite the fact that it was a very busy evening. His wife, the chef, is a magician. Her flavor combinations were unexpected and totally delicious. If I lived in. Bruges I would eat here every night!More

We had an amazing meal at this small independent restaurant. The service, the food and the wine pairings were all excellent and the best we had in Bruges. I have food allergies (which I notified them of in advance) and so dishes from the set...menu were tweaked without any fuss, which I really appreciated. The restaurant itself is also very nice and quiet (in a good way!) - ideal for dinner for two.More

Starting with the plus side, the dishes were beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Unfortunately, I have to agree with previous comments about the portion sizes and waiting time. This is definitely not the place to come if you’re hungry, which we were! We had the...5 course seasonal menu and I had the wine pairings, the last glass of which failed to arrive, so we asked for it to be deducted from the bill. The decor and ambience were quite subdued. With only one person cooking and one serving, they were obviously both working very hard but to charge these kinds of prices I think the overall dining experience needs to improve. My husband would have given 2 points for a ‘poor’ rating but I’m giving it 3 because of the food quality.More
