We opted for the menu including paired wines - a great decision to make. Always enjoy the atmosphere in the restaurant and it was delightful again. The food was freshly prepared with a delicate combination of flavours and the paired wines complimented each course superbly. The presentation of the food was excellent with each dish being a feast for the eyes, before delighting the pallet! Will keep returning and recommend booking to be sure of experiencing this delight!

We had a wonderful dinner on the last night of our stay in Bruges.
The restaurant has limited but tasty and healthy options for vegetarians. Our friends were raving about the wine pairing with the food. Desert – Ice cream with peach is must!
It’s advisable to book the table in advance.
The décor is nice and the patio is landscaped beautifully.
We enjoyed our dinner at Reliva.
Thanks.

We had a great experience at Reliva. It is run by a young couple - she is the chef and he runs the front of the restaurant. They both do a great job. They limit the choices to a few fresh and well done items. Definitely, they stress quality and freshness over quantity. The bouillabaisse was particularly excellent - both fresh and tasty and an ample quantity. The pork dis was also fresh and tasty.

The restaurant is an excellent value and the service by the young man was well done. He provided great guidance on the wines and beer choices. He also provided good tips on other places to eat and drink in Brugges. At the time, it was ranked #6 and we also ate at the #3 spot and Reliva was much better. We definitely recommend it!

When the price bar is set high the food has to match.
There is a lot to recommend! Friendly, helpful staff, lovely location and peaceful exterior patio garden setting. Good selection of beers and wines.

Disappointed by the rigid menu policies, limited choice, minuscule portions and average tasting food. I feel this may be the norm for fine dining in Brugge?
However an enjoyable evening was had in a convivial setting by our group.

A unique experience but not one I would personally rush to repeat, when there are so many fine establishments to choose from. Try it and see, it may be your kind of food experience.
