Restaurant Den Heerd was for years a well-known name in Damme. Recently the owners decided to move to Bruges and start the restaurant over again in hotel Montanus ! The transformation of the new restaurant works well. The interior design has a nice modern touch, with shades of black, orange and brown. The biggest advantage of this restaurant is the beautiful terrace, where you can enjoy your meal in a peace and quiet atmosphere, and if you’re lucky with some sun. It’s a hidden treasure, you would almost forget that you are in the city center of Bruges.
On the menu there are different choices of lunch, starters and main courses. We enjoyed some fingerfood with the apertif. Then we chose the vitello tonato (€14,50) and a mousseline of potatoe, shrimp and rucola (€16). The presentation of the vitello tonato was original, the taste was also good. The mousseline had a more flat taste, but the fresh shrimps made it an ‘ok’ dish.
As main course we chose the seabass with green asperigus and new potatoes (€25) and also for the specialty of the house, the open lasagne with sole, st-jacobs fruit, shiitake and samphire (€27). This dish was delicious, very original. The same can be said of the seabass. Both dishes were reasonably priced, and as with the starters, enough food on your plate. During dinner we drank an excellent bottle of Mâcon Fuissé (€30).
Nobody had room for dessert, except me…. I chose the moeulleux au chocolat, served with vanilla ice. The moelleux was baked a bit too much, not as runny as it should be. It’s always a challenge to get this dessert right!
Restaurant ‘Den Heerd’ also serves a three course menu for €34,50, €52,50 all-in. The lunch is a starter and main course for€19,50.
Restaurant Den Heerd serves a very good cuisine, has a beautiful terrace with garden outside and nice interior inside. You are often amazed about whats behind facades in Bruges. This is one of these surprises! Closing days on wednesday and sunday.
