We're both vegan, so we went in and ask if they have anything vegan. The answer was blunt "NO". Are you serious? Even if you are vegetarian place, at least try to make an effort!

My girlfriend and I have been to Brugge two times, both times we ate at Bhavani because we love indian food. A great thing about this restaurant is the informative menucard, which will let you know if there is any diary products in the food. The food is well tasting and well made, the atmosphere is very nice, and the price is standard Brugge, a little expensive.

Pros: Vegan friendly menucard, Wonderful atmosphere, Good food

Don't go in! Very expensive for what you get!
It's been a while but OMG no more! We remember the dissapointment everytime we passed by or even reading that name. Visits the resto 2 times, 2 times a real dissapointment! The last time we asked for vegan dishes...no problem they said! OMG, it was overcooked rubbish food! We even couldn't recognise the vegetables and the colors where mostly brown or even gone! Everything exept the rice was overcooked. Cheap white rice was ok. Not even a quality rice(brown) for so much money? Shame you guys! We paid so much money for so less food and still hungry as small eaters??? Shame you! Horeca in Bruges are mostly not friendly and abuse lots of tourists for the money, even there own people who lived in or near Bruges! For vegans it's negative, sorry! Better go to Ghent!

Pros: Nice environment but that's it.
Cons: expensive, overcooked, colorless, not very friendly! Dissaster for vegans!

Pros: Nice environment
Cons: expensive and still hungry, overcooked tastless colorless, not very friendly, don't visit

As my husband and I are veggie, we thought we would go to an Indian restaurant as its always a safe bet for veggie options.

The decor and ambience at the restaurant was lovely with a log fire and really friendly staff. However, our foord was too salty! The starters and mains were so salty that we had to force ourselves to eat it. It was such a shame and just ruined our meal for us.

Such a shame as the restaurant was lovely and the service was good!

In hindsight after finding our starters salty, we probably should have asked them to make our mains less salty but we did not expect the mains to be salty too.

That aisde, plenty of veggie options!

Ein sehr leckeres indisches Restaurant. Der Wirt hilft bei der Auswahl der veganen Speisen und gibt detailliert Auskunft über die Zubereitung. Das Menü ist etwas teuer, aber eine Hauptspeise (ca. 15 Euro), eine Beilage, ein Geträunk: So kann man fur ca. 20 Euro gut essen.

J'ai vraiment aime ce restau indien. Le patron aide à choisir des plats vegetaliens et sait bien decrire les plats. Les menus sont un peu chers, mais on trouve des plats a 15 Euros, avec du riz et une boisson on paie env. 20 euros. Ce n'est pas trop, surtout a ce lieu, au centre touristique de Bruges.

Pros: friendly staff, excellent food, nice place

A Regretful Experience

Posted on 10 / 27 / 2010

Being a vegetarian in Bruges is difficult.Expect to get mediocre pasta,pizza or cheese croquettes for extortionate prices.I did do my research,tried to stay away from the more touristy eating areas,and go with the best reviewed eating options.However, 'De Bron' was closed for the weekend,and most other places with great reviews and good veggie options such as 'De Bottelier' were fully booked, even a day in advance.

Like most places in Bruges,we knew this place was expensive when we entered, but as a tourist sometimes you are willing to overlook the price, in an effort to just try and enjoy yourself on holiday and hope that the food and service will match up to the price.My boyfriend's non-vegetarian food was mediocre and my vegetarian food was less than average; A lentil soup for starter(the cheapest at approx €7).Other options included a veg samosa or veg pakora at an astonishing €13. For the main,a curry of mostly brussel sprouts(€16) & plain basmati rice at an extra cost.

However our experience worsened when we received the bill. Having been overcharged for my order, I queried the owner. (Our €100 bill should have come to €8 less).It became apparent that although I ordered from the 'al la carte' menu and my boyfriend from the €33 'set menu',we were both charged the set menu price.The owner was immediately confrontational and condescending.I explained that the main problem was the fact that he did not make the restaurant's unusual billing process clear to us(which was only explained in a footnote in Dutch).He then calculated our bill again according to the 'al a carte' prices rather than the set menu prices,returned and smugly pointed out that if everything was charged at the 'al a carte' prices that it would amount to a difference of €1.50 less than his original bill.He asked if it really mattered or if we had known the policy, would we have ordered any differently.We said yes.He then demanded to know what we would have ordered! By this time the argument became a matter of principle rather than money and his attitude had made thing infinitely worse,souring our entire evening. Lastly he jeered, "What should I do? Give you a discount of €8?".I answered simply "Yes".He laughed arrogantly and said in a patronizing tone as he turned his back on us and walked away, "Pay what you want".We paid the bill minus the €8 and left.This was a horrible experience.The website is also a complete deception.The food and presentation looks nothing like they advertise.

Pros: Getting out of here
Cons: Expensive, Mediocre indian, Rude

    Visiting Bruges is mostly a dissapointment or a big problem for veggies and a dissaster for vegans.
