“Looks can be deceiving”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

This is very well located and the outdoor seating is attractive to view the square. But its in the name. This is the crown plaza's hotels cafe and you pay hotel prices. The food is OK and the drinks expensive. You pay for the view to a degree. Nothing wrong with this but its not the best value

BruggeCPB, Manager at PlazaCafe, responded to this review, 18 July 2014
Dear Guest,

thank you very much for your reaction. Our prices have nothing to do with the hotel. All our meals are based on the quality of the products. We know that compared to other restaurants on the different squares in Brugge our price setting is absolutely reasonable. In PlazaCafé we never charge you any extra for fries, mayonnaise or vegetables as done in a lot of other restaurants. During lunch we serve a daily dish for €13,25. This is compared to other restaurants absolutely favorable.

Best regards

Lucas Bakx

“Good value for money”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

We chose to eat here Saturday night, Very good. Not expensive. You get what you expect. My husband was a little disappointed. He ordered a stuffed tomato with brown prawns and mayo, He did say he thinks that is what he had ordered. Well worth a visit.

“Average food, there are better places to eat in Bruges”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

Average food. Expensive to drink something. The best here is the terrace near Burg and cityhall. Brunch is so so, only 2 sorts of main (fish or meat) and one vegetable bain-marie and one with potatoes. The theme was 'beer' but the beertaste in the food whe didn't taste to be honest. Will pick another place to eat next time

“Training required!”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

We didn't stay at the Crowne Plaza, but as we walked past their cafe outside the hotel, we thought we'd stop and have a drink and maybe some lunch. So we sat down in full view of the two waitresses, neither of whom acknowledged us. There was a couple sitting next to us whose order has arrived but complained that their table needed cleaning, which it did, and then the order was wrong.

We had now been sitting at the table for some 15 minutes, so when one of the waitresses decided to clean the table behind us rather than serve us, we decided it was time to go. Feeling rather silly and disappointed we stood up and left. They were both there - still ignoring us. Maybe we were invisible!

I would like to point out that I am not a complainer, this is the first negative review I have written.
