White tablecloths, soft lighting and candles on every table make for a truly romantic dinner, anytime of the year. Ter Boeverie is the restaurant at The Sofitel Hotel Brugge...one of my favorite places to stay. This hotel is a renovated 17th century monastery that reflects the typical charm of this medieval city.
This classic restaurant is where the breakfast buffet is served every morning, but the real joy is dinner. They serve classic Flemish dishes and international cuisine. Their Prix Fix menu is a great deal because it includes wine..and they leave the bottle on the table so you can help yourself. (and stumble back to your hotel room, easier)
Our dinner this particular May evening was an amazing meal of lamb and fish. We started off with the salad of asparagus Flemish style with Zeebrugge shrimp. It was green and white asparagus with crème fresh, tiny shrimps and marinated tomatoes. To DIE for. The main courses were Rosemary roasted lamb chops with potatoes that was wonderful, to say the least. The lamb was tender and juicy and cooked to perfection, at medium rare. I had the tilapia in a tomato sauce with potatoes. The fish was fried, but not greasy or heavy..just light and tasty. Dessert came in the form of a dessert bar. Chocolate tortes, cakes, ice cream...it was all here.
