Restaurant Couvert is located on a quiet street one block from one of Bruges' charming canals. Because our B and B owner had recommended this (along with several other nearby restaurants), we expected a good meal. However, we were not prepared for one this exceptional.
First to appear were three small bowls, one with radishes, one with green olives and one with tiny sea snails. This amuse bouche suggested this meal was going to be an interesting one. We studied the menu, which was in both Flemish and French, having fun trying to decide on the English translation. The proprietor (the place is run by a wife and husband team with the wife in the front of the house and the husband in the kitchen) appeared to explain the selections. We decided on the three course prix fixe with accompanying wines.
Each course was exceptional, with the highlight being tender lamb topped with a delicious duxcelle. The wines well matched to the courses and the serving size was generous. The hostess was charming and we certainly enjoyed our time at this delightful restaurant.
