We had lunch there yesterday. I had a beautiful salad, which was absolutely beautifully presented and delicious, and my husband had a chick rice dish, which was also excellent. Service was friendly, and the restaurant was charming. One of our nicer meals in Belgium.

Thank Beth D

The owners of Patritus where we were staying recommended it. Lovely candlelit dinner. Good food but small portions. Service was slow but courteous. Water was charged and exorbitantly!

Just a short walk from the Bruges town square, where all restaurants are at best mediocre, this one is a gem. It is operated by a man and his wife, who is, by the way, an excellent chef. We picked it on our hotelier's recommendation as one of his local favorites, and his taste proved to be spot on. We had a very enjoyable dining experience, seated where we could see all of the work taking place in the kitchen, receiving carefully prepared and unique food, coupled with an excellent Belgian beer. What more could you want?

The service here is slow - there is one man (apparently the owner) serving about 20 tables. My understanding is that there is only one cook too - his wife apparently.

Our starters were both salads but were pleasant and well made with fresh ingredients.

Our mains impressed less - a pasta dish was heavy and too salty and a stir fry lacked interest.

Desserts were fine but nothing particularly special.

A bottle of red wine was very expensive (over 3 times retail price) and served cold (as in, from a fridge) with no comment or apology.

The people who run this place seem very nice and well meaning but we were a bit unimpressed and felt let down by the very slow service and cold red wine. At cheaper prices, these faults could have been tolerated but this place is pricey (as others have noted).

Overall impression: could (easily) be doing this better.
