Sint-Amandsstraat 18, Brugge, Bruges, Belgium

Serves meat, vegan options available. Typical Belgian brasserie located in the centre of the old Bruges. Quite a number of vegetarian options all clearly labeled and especially what seems to be the most budget-friendly option in town: a properly huge dish of vegetarian spaghetti (pasta, tomato sauce, mushrooms) for approx. 3 Euro. Although the place is not vegetarian, the clear labeling and rarity of the deal both at the level of Belgian brasseries and for restaurants within Bruges, makes it an decent option for vegetarians. Vegans please inquire and inform HappyCow. SEP 2016 REPORTED SHUT.

Not vegetarian-friendly and terrible service - Edit

My boyfriend and I came to Brugge yesterday and stopped by Brasserie Medard after seeing the Happy Cow listing. First of all, there is only one "vegetarian-friendly" option on the menu, not several. It's spaghetti with sauce, that's it. The service, if you can call it that, was terrible. We were actually denied a table because there was only two of us. A group of 3 came in after we did and were immediately seated. We were told we could "sit outside" (where there were no tables), but not inside because they "need their tables." Obviously service is not a priority for this place and when we asked the server if there was any other vegetarian option besides the spaghetti she responded with an emphatic "no." [edit by staff - see ToS]. I won't step foot in Brasserie Medard again.

Cons: Not vegan friendly, Barely veggie friendly, Terrible service

vegazosten 07 Aug 2014 - We smile after reading this. Yes we almost feels what you had feeling that day! Bruges is a shithole for vegans and a minor for veggies! Medard has never been friendly, even after all this years. Unbelievable it still has so many visitors but that for unaware people who careless spend money on low quality food. Food is mostly Horeca Total and other cheap frozen rubbish but yeah, most people don't care, it's ok eating this crap, if only the prices are good!

TrudiBruges 23 Nov 2014 - Totally agree with you TunnelMojo. I don't know why this place is still listed in Happy Cow (or is still open for that matter).
There are several other places in Bruges where you can get a vegan meal (but many are not listed on Happy Cow). See our blog!
