I was in Bruges with my father and partner for my birthday weekend. I booked a table for my birthday dinner on the Friday night.
We arrived at 7pm and were met by Axel and his wonderful team. We had a lovely corner table in the elegant dining room and were very well looked after,
The 4 course set menu with accompanying wines (or beers) is compulsory at weekends. There are 3 or 4 choices for each course - check out their website for the details.
We were first served a glass of pink sparkling wine and an amuse bouche of smoked salmon - delicious.
With each course we were served a glass of selected wine, although you could chose if you preferred red or white. I was served a chardonnay with my scallop starter and was a little perturbed, as I don't normally like chardonnay - at all! However, I was reassured by the server that the wine was delicious, and it was actually delicious!
I now know a chardonnay that I can drink (I made sure to note the name!)
Wine glasses were topped up as we ate, so we certainly got more than one glass per
course. The staff were lovely and very helpful, and Axel was charming - a very attentive host in the nicest way. He made sure everyone in the restaurant was well looked after. There were several people celebrating with a special meal.
As it was my birthday they served a little trio of tarts (one each) with a candle for me to blow out - a lovely touch.
The food and wine was all top quality, and the service impeccable. Next time we are in Bruges we will definitely be back.
Thank you Axel and the team.

L'Esperance

Reviewed By Sanz1820 - Inverness, United Kingdom

We ate in four different restaurants in de Haan, and this was by far the best and most memorable. As far as I could see, the whole operation was run by two incredibly hard-working men - one chef and one waiter - so be prepared to wait between courses, this is not fast food. But the food is sensational - real Michelin star quality. Not cheap - expect to spend around 120 euros for two people with drinks and gratuity.

Restaurant Couvert

Reviewed By gnetwerker - Portland, Oregon

I came early, and alone, without a reservation. The proprietors' child was sitting on the stairs. Despite it being (apparently) a two person operation, I was treated to both exquisite food and service. Both the entre and the plat (main course) were generously sized (more than I could eat), but delicious. The fish (cabillaud / cod) was moist and perfectly cooked. I should not omit mention of the multiple amuse bouche before, including fresh radishes and a bowl of winkles!
This is off the tourist trail, and well worth visiting. If you are in a giant hurry, maybe not, it's a place worth savouring.

Le Mystique - Relais & Chateaux

We propose a fine seasonal Flemish / French cuisine by Chef Gregory Slembnrouck whose inspiration is lead by high quality, fresh market produce. His second home is certainly his stove, where he spends most of his time there creating and working his culinary magic to obtain the perfect gourmet statement for each guest that is both royal in presentation and abundant in taste. Each plate offered at Le Mystique is proof of Chef Gregory's refined culinary expertise, which showcases not only his extraordinary love for food, but as a master of his craft he is constantly preoccupied with balancing his inspiration for new presentations, his flow of creativity, and his incessant quest for continuous quality. You can fully enjoy this exquisite cuisine in a perfect balance between cost and quality, in the unique historic room in the hotel dating back to 1869 by choosing for one of our original menus 'Flavours of the region', or simply by ordering your favourite dishes à la carte.

Reviewed By Paulsmithcasty - Malaga, Spain

Situated within the Heritage hotel, this is a ridiculously romantic dining room. Period furnishings and chadeliers of the baroque period/style. Excellent service- discreet yet very attentive. The food was wonderful. High end French cooking but with an International reach in terms of ingredients and dishes available. Quality fresh ingredients presented extremely well on plate. Top end pricing but this is a quality and memorable dining experience.

Le Sweet Restaurant

Reviewed By inclineski - Wargrave, United Kingdom

Had a Sunday lunch here with friends in May, it was excellent so on our return to Dunkirk to collect our boat we very sensible made a reservation for dinner. Firstly staff are brilliant very professional then the food, well I ordered from the la carte menu and my husband from the 35euro set menu, both were first class, the fish dishes full of flavour and beautifully presented.
Would certainly go back. Best resturant in Dunkirk.

Haut Bonheur de la Table

Reviewed By gladfin - Brussels, Belgium

An absolute gem, this one. Simply the best of everything. Just wonderful food beautifully presented in an ideal setting, and served by charming and professional staff. We arrived at the last minute, with only just over an hour to spare and they accommodated us (with difficulty) and made our day. A memorable meal indeed at a fraction of the usual expense.

Restaurant Eclips

This romantic restaurant offers a good quality- price meal (fondue)! Even if it's not the cheapest restaurant in the neighborhood, you won't be disappointed! The portions are big and everything is fresh and perfect quality. We are always easy to be contacted by e-mail!

Reviewed By GandulfCharpentier - Ostend, Belgium

The food is very high quality, the meats are tender, the homemade sauces are simple but get the job done. The owner has a special view of things that will rub some people the wrong way but not us. Running an honest business costs a fortune in Belgium. Quality also costs money, and so does good service.

Cuines 33

Reviewed By paula m - Miami, Florida

Several months had passed since I enjoyed lunch at Cuines 33 so I decided to return for dinner. In a word - Outstanding! From the moment we were seated and presented our first amuse-bouche the food stimulated all the senses. The visual presentation, the well-rounded combination of flavors, the wafting fragrance culminated in pure deliciousness. Every course was noteworthy for its creative preparation and flawless service. Dessert, a Dona Blanche, was the crescendo - an titillating combination of visual amazement and gastronomical pleasure. I don't want to be a spoiler - just don't miss it!

Bistro Bordo

Reviewed By MikeV84 - Ghent, Belgium

Bistro Bordo is a cosy restaurant on the verge of the town center. The pleasant dining room immediately made us feel like home.
The menu is all about fondue. Our group had the Mexican and the regular fondue, both of which were delicious. The same could be said of the (affordable) wine.
During the entire meal, we got the full attention of the hostess, who kept bringing us new sauces, fries and fajitas.
For an informal, relaxing, tasty and affordable dining experience in Kortrijk, head for Bistro Bordo!
