One of four family-owned restaurants set side-by-side and opposite the Belfort, La Civière d’Or  is the best options in the row of restaurants on the Markt, in terms of price, ambience, and waitstaff charm. Grab a table outside, order a bucket full of mussels, a plate of frites, a Belgian beer, and sit back to watch the action on the dramatic stage that is the Markt. This place has been around since 1947 so it must be doing something right. It’s exactly what Bruges is all about.
