As weather was very hot, we were having alfresco dinner till late. The food is delicious. The beer is good, especially those above 5%.

Had lunch here. Went in for set menu as it looked good value. when we arrived we were the only ones there, waitress didn't seem that keen to help. Chardonnay only wine by the glass, not allowed tap water, couldn't add cream to mussels - even for an extra cost not allowed half portion of mussels a la carte, only allowed that if you have set menu! We nearly walked out because we felt unwelcome. In the end the food was fine but we ended up spending more than we wanted as we had to go a la carte. Paid 26 Euros for a steak that was very average, wife had to have full bowl of mussels she didn't really want.
Chips were excellent though.
Was funny watching the waitress taking great delight in turning people away when it would have meant moving a couple of tables!
Overall would say if you are happy to have exactly what's on the menu, if everywhere else is full then I would say go, if only for the entertaining waitress!

A small restaurant with around 24 covers this restaurant was one of the best places to eat that we found on our trip to Bruges. Not over priced like many others and we were served home cooked food by the pleasant and helpful staff.

We had Flemish stew and pork loin, both of which were delicious. However, the crowning glory of the meal was the delightful homemade white and milk chocolate mousse which we shared. The total bill was around 45 euros for two main courses, one dessert and a beer each.

Booking would be recommended. Being nearby our hotel we passed it several times during our stay and it was always full in the evening. We booked on a Monday night in October and were pleased we had done so otherwise we might not have been able to get a table for the two of us.

I am hoping to return to Bruges with friends next year and will definitely be booking into the Jan Van Eyck.

Maybe it was just that this was the first place we ate (a lunch) in Brugge, maybe it was the first moules et frites......not sure but it was a great little lunch. Best frites we had anywhere, moules well prepared, great waiter who left for a few minutes in the middle to pick up his son from school but never left us feeling underserved. It was well prepared, reasonably priced food in a lovely square away from the heavy tourist areas. A very pleasant experience all round - I would recommend it if you are in the neighbourhood.
