I have just booked a Eurotunnel/Hotel break over the Festive Period and was wondering whether anyone could recommend a few nice restaurants, cafes and even places to visit. We are based in Bruges but will radiate throughout Flanders.

I know all three cities quite well but have not really been there for many years so am out of date on certain things like restaurants and cafes.

Probably looking for a couple of of special occasions restaurants and a few good value places. I love Belgian and Northern French cuisine so local stuff even better.

if anyone can help that would be much appreciated.

My info is 15 years old but Bruges is much older. I stayed at t' Bourgoensche Cruyce, a 14th century inn with half a dozen rooms up a creaky staircase with an excellent restaurant on the ground floor. My room looked out on a canal and onto the Duc de Bourgogne , also a great restaurant. My first night there I was disappointed not to see swans. Then came down the canal a rowdy bunch in a boat who had obviously had a few too many beers. They spotted me watching them and implored me to come boating with them, jumping into the canal to make their point. Late that night I looked out again and there they were- five or six swans right under my window, glowing phosphorescent in the dark. Thank you so much for reminding me of that wonderful trip.

We went to this place in Lille in 2009.
Le Hochepot
It was not spectacular but the atmosphere was cozy.
I will be waving to you from Toulouse, we leave tomorrow!
