    Loved this place! We were looking for something outside of the tourist centre of Bruges and it absolutely lived up to the reviews. It was a bit of a walk from the centre but it was nice walking through quiet Bruges streets and away from the tourist crowds. Service was great, menu was explained to us in English. I had a beer recommended to me that was one of their cheaper ones and it was great. Free chip and sauce appetiser was a nice surprise too. We picked traditional cuisine and it was all excellent. The serving sizes were big and we left very full. Very good value venue, highly recommend if you're hungry and up for the walk over.

    Delicious local food, great service, and 10 mins away from the touristic traps in the center.

    Authentic feel, friendly staff, good beer selection & menu range. Soup & main combo for €1850 looked excellent value. We just wanted soup & this was a very tasty vegetable soup that hit the spot nicely.

    We went here for our first dinner in Bruges and it was something to remember. The guy that took our order was extremely nice. Big servings. Very tasty food. Excellent experience. I would say it's a place to try

    Tasty and delicious food with decent price and a nice variety of beers. Me and my wife went to Bruges for a weekend visit and we went to this restaurant for lunch. I recommended it.

    The restaurant serves local food to local people. It is located a little outside where most tourists hangs out. I had the lamb stew and my wife had the pork cheek stew. Both were delicious and the portions were huge. The orders came with fries and potato croquet. We also had 2 beers and a mouth watering hot apple pie with ice cream dessert. All for 45 euro.

  • 5Dani J. 9 months ago
    Our host recommended this dinner spot. We had the chicken & steak options and both portions were huge. There were maybe 6 total tables & one chef cooking everything in the same room. As a picky eater - I was unsure of this spot but glad we ate here. Would HIGHLY recommend making reservations here or anywhere in Bruges.

    Such a hidden gem in Bruges. We loved every aspect of Lion Belge. Food, beer, atmosphere, service.

    Our first stop after arriving in Bruges and loved it, food and service was great, nice atmosphere, had a real local vibe about it while remaining friendly to us tourists

    We dropped into this place, by chance, and enjoyed the daily lunch offering of soup and beef stew - delicious. Many of the tables were reserved - an indication of its popularity. Great warm ambience.

    I came across this restaurant by chance and it has proven to be a true stroke of luck. The filet mignon here was the best I've had in a very long time. The meat itself was of high quality, and of equal quality was the chef who prepared it. It tasted great, on top of that the portion was huge at a very good price I think. The restaurant is absolutely recommendable. The service takes a lot of time to explain the daily menu if you don't know Dutch. It speaks for the restaurant that it has a handwritten menu on a chalkboard. This tells me that the ingredients are bought fresh each day, depending on what is best on any given day. You definitely have to make a reservation to get a seat. This is easy via Whatsapp, I had found the number on the Facebook page. (It is not suitable for vegetarians, by the way).

    Friendly service, quality food, good prices and cozy atmosphere. I really enjoyed my lunch at Lion Belge and will come back next time I’m in Brugge. Highly recommended!

    Don't go here if you have a food allergy/intolerance. There was one "dairy free" option that I chose happily but ended up being incredibly sick afterwards. The meal was very average for €30! Not worth the price and not worth being sick. My partner also has a lot of food intolerances which we are used to having issues with, but after giving the list of ingredients, they said they had an option for him. Unfortunately when it came out it we noticed it looked like it had an ingredient he couldnt eat. We asked the chef if it did as the waiter wasn't sure - turns out it did. Honest mistake but the chef was super rude to us about it! After that, we checked for further things like sauces for the chips they were super annoyed about it or not wanting to answer. It's not our choice to not eat those foods. I am extremely sick right now and I could have not been if you just said you either couldn't cater to it, or not lied about it.

    I really enjoyed my experience there, the portion is huge so the price is totally fair consider the quality of food. The handmade fries is the best one I’ve tried in Belgium so far, the staff is very very friendly, translated the menu into English to me one by one, I really appreciated it. The wine is also good quality and quantity as 5€/glass Very nice atmosphere as well, is like they treat everyone as their family. Loved it

    Amazing food and great service. The chicken dish was delicious and the beer pairing was superb.

    Best duck legs I've ever had in my life. Came with a side (croquettes) that I had to take away because the duck was so delicious and filling. A bit of ham to start while you're waiting, and I finished with a French coffee (Grand Marnier) to cap this amazing meal. This is a place not to miss, make a reservation ahead of time!
