“Excellent salads, local spirit”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

L'Estaminet is a popular spot even among the locals in Brugge and prides itself in its homy and not-at-all fancy atmosphere. The place is however often overcrowded and the service might take a while, but if you want to have a nice salad, some cider and enjoy people speaking Flemish around you, this would be the place to visit.

“Nothing fancy but great atmosphere”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Are you looking for a place a bit away from the busy Great Market area, go to L'Estaminet.
Good music, great spaghetti and a lot of beers. Enjoy!

“Wish we found this earlier”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Great bar, food looked good too and not overpriced. A good little find by the park away from the hustle and bustle. Staff were fun too.

“Great bar which serves food”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

Stopped off for a couple of beers on the way to a restaurant one evening so didn't eat here. However lots of other people did and the food looked very good - simple pasta type dishes mainly. It is situated close to the Fishmarket and on the edge of Astrid park. Great range of beer and it has an outside sitting area to the front overlooking the park. Inside is a typical "brown Cafe" with a great atmosphere. Worth seeking out.

“So-so Service & Interesting Menu”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

We went for lunch and had trouble getting the waitress/bartender's attention (as she was eating her own lunch and chatting with friends at the bar in between serving everyone). We ordered a chili con carne and a hamburger-not the usual Belgian food. It was good and the beer was affordable. The inside area was dark and cozy, while the outdoor enclosed patio was bright and hot (they had heaters on for some reason on a sunny day...we sat inside to be a little cooler).
