“De Bron - still as good as ever!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

My ?th visit, but the first one for after a long break of around eight years. . the owner/manager - somewhat incredibly recogised me from previous visits which was really touching. Discovered this little place years ago opposite the Novotel/Ibis complex in Brugge, and its relatively simple formula of differing plate sizes/portions without an unneccessarily complex menu, evidently works as it is still going strong. The door was not closed and we got a table easily enough - although this is obviously sometimes difficult given the quite limited opening hours and the fact it is not open in the evenings. I like the fact that it has not changed and offers (what my hopeless translation seems to be) organic vegetarian food and drinks, including some Belgian beers. . exclusively vegetarian restaurants still are a rarity in Brugge and this is a lovely place.

“veggie food with no twist”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

it was oke, more then that should not really be expected from a place that is decorated like the inside of an ikea. It has the feel of a hospital restaurant not helped by the fact that 80 procent of its customers are retired folks. Nothing wrong with that but nothing right with that either. The food is oke but its always the same: some rice, a salad, a veggie spaghettisauce and some fried pieces of veggie-equivalent-meat. all in all a 6/10

“Vegetarian eccentric”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

This restaurant is only open at lunch. It only offers vegetarian food. Strangely there is no choice, the main course is only differentiated by size. We only had coffee and cake which was excellent and reasonably priced, as we had had a large breakfast. Everyone who was eating seemed to be enjoying their lunch and the restaurant was full although this was February. We would have returned for lunch, but only discovered the restaurant on our last day.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

We went to bruges for 5 days and really struggled to find veggie food until one of the pubs in the main square told us of this restaurant.
Unfortunately kn the first day we got there at 1.30 and they'd run out of food as they only open for 2 hours a day at lunch. 12-2
We went back the following day and it was definitely worth the wait.
We had a soup starter which was hot and extremely tastey.
They have a set meal and you just choose your size plate. We both had medium plates. They were enough for us with a starter.
Food took a little while to arrive because they make it all fresh. The taste was absolutely amazing. So many flavours. I've been to a few veggie restaurants in the UK but this is my favourite.
Drinks were also fresh. My boyfriend had apple juice - which is real juice from apples (not from a carton) and I had carrot and apple juice mix!! Really lovely!
Only complaint - they don't do dinner!
