“Adorable and Picturesque”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

We were in walking distance of The Markt so we enjoyed all it had to offer while we were in Bruges, making many trips to and through. We ate at a couple of the restaurants located here, the first night having dinner that featured set price 3 course meals. And in the morning we visited again and were pleasantly surprised with the setup of a farmer's market! Lots of trucks offering a variety of selections from meats, cheeses, flowers, fruits and vegetables, and much more. It was wonderful to see all the locals out and about doing their shopping.
And of course visiting The Markt is an excellent way to really soak in and enjoy the architecture of Bruges.

“BUSTLING HEART OF THE CITY”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

Great selection of bars and restaurants, ringed by impressive historic buildings. Gets vey busy, and it can be a jostle to get a good table - prices here are higher than the streets running off.

Reviewed 3 May 2012

Busy with plenty of restaurants and coffee places to watch the passersby and admire the buildings all around. Magic at night.

Reviewed 2 May 2012

Beautiful part of Bruges but the restaurants and tearooms around the perimeter very expensive, walk a little up the side streets for a cheaper menu
