Bruges - De Karmeleit or De Jonkman?

I need to make a quick choice between these two dinners. I'd appreciate any input.

  1. Both offer very very fine dining.

    Your decision could be based on the following elements.
    Jonkman is more about fish than Karmeliet.
    Jonkman is located outside the city. You will need a car or (expensive) taxi. Karmeliet is right in the pedestrian centre of town.

    If money were a consideration, Karmeliet's wine list is not known for being a bargain.

      Thanks for the input. I picked Jonkman; I'll let you know how it goes.

        I love de jonkman. We've been there twice, and it's truly lovely and delicious. Also, we've taken a taxi there from Bruges, both times. I guess coming from NY and Paris, the ride doesn't seem outrageous. Enjoy!
