    The market cafe's and restaurants are notorious for upping the prices when you're not looking. Check the prices in the menus with what they've written on the bill. Most are OK, but there's always one, isn't there (or in the market's case, 5 or 6).
    I´ve never had a problem at´'De Beurze', however. This is one of the corner cafe´s. It´s not a plug, but I have been overcharged by a number of places on the market, and this wasn´t one of them. A lot of the ex-pats prefer to go here.

    De Mario: International Incident!

    We probably shuld have been more saavy than to try to eat on the Markt. But it was Monday and the town was not crowded so we thought, why not. Bad move.

    We were seated quickly, but even though we ordered a simple salami pizza--it took over an hour for the pizza to arrive. And when it did arrive, it set off an international brouhaha.

    There was a French couple that had been seated when we were shown our table. Therefore, they had been waiting for even longer than we had for their food. When they saw the pizza being placed on our table they lost it, screamed obsenities and made to leave. However, they had each had several drinks. The waiter was not going to let them leave without paying for the drinks. Pushing, shoving, grabbing and many threats on both sides ensued.

    We enjoyed the floor show, paid our bill and left quietly.

    I can see both sides. The wait was intolerable. But the patrons had several drinks and should at least have paid for those. It wasn't the waiter's fault the kitchen was understaffed.

    Markt: Pavement Cafes

    The cafes around Markt like to serve you food more than they like to serve you drinks - especially on the side I show in this picture. Often they will only be "open for food" - which is unusual I think. The cafes on the other side of the square will be happy for you to just have a drink.

    Oh darn! Stuck in a downpour and had to suffer through with a glass of vino and smoked salmon at one of the many lovely restaurants that line the Markt of Brugge.

    Favorite Dish: Smoked Salmon.
