Eating Out in Bruges, Belgium

Bruges Eating Out

As it is a city that thrives on tourism, there are an abundance of restaurants in Bruges’ city centre. These ranging from the two fast-food cabins in front of the Belfry where you’ll be well fed on as little as €5 to those aimed at more affluent tourists.

While there is no one area where many of the restaurants and places to eat are located, Hoogstraat is peppered with restaurants of all types.

And If you want to try out some local specialities, try out the Belgian waffles and chocolates.

Restaurants in Bruges

  • Frituur Peter

    Markt, Bruges, Belgium

    These stands, located right in front of the Belfry Tower in Markt, have been satisfying rumbling stomachs for decades. The menus are packed with fast food but there are some local specialities thrown in for good measure. €5 will get a you lots of junk for your trunk, and a drink too.

    Open daily from 10am-4am.

  • Pili Pili

    Hoogstraat 17, Bruges, Belgium

    While their logo sports a chili, Pili Pili specialises in Italian fare, not Thai. Here the funky décor and cool paintings make eating an extremely pleasurable experience. Pastas on the menu start at €5.50 while this snug restaurant also does meal specials from €8.

    Open daily from 12 noon-2pm and 6pm-10.30pm.

  • De Bretoen Pannenkoeken

    Ezelstraat 4, Bruges, Belgium

    Located beside a canal just north of Markt, this cosy café/restaurant offers food for a couple of Euro less than those dotted around the city's more central streets. Its menu isn't the most extensive in the world, but this is the perfect place for an afternoon lunch.

    Open daily from 11am-10pm.

  • Het Dagelijks Brood

    Philipstockstraat 21, Bruges, Belgium

    It's seldom that you enter an establishment and know within minutes of sitting down you'll be returning soon. But when you take a seat at the communal table here to enjoy your bread and tea for breakfast, or soup or salad for lunch, you know you'll be back. Staff are refreshingly polite in a city run by tourism and the fare is second to none.

    Open daily from 8am-7pm.

  • Le Baguette

    Katelijnestraat, 20, Bruges, Belgium

    If you’re looking for a fast, quick lunch that won’t work out too expensive, Le Baguette on Katelijnestraat in Central Bruges is just the place. There’s nothing particularly special about the interior, but they do good paninis, baguettes and cakes if you feel like a treat.

    Open daily from 7.30am-6pm.
