Surprising but slightly expensive

Escabeche is one of the smaller restaurants in Knokke, but at the same time its one of the bigger surprises in Knokke. Surprising interpretations of known dishes. The veal on a bad of dried grass is absolutely fabulous. Its a small restaurant, so reservations are a must.

Escabeche is an established, classy restaurant. We had such a good dinner, we went back the next day. Professional and friendly service, accommodating to all tastes. A particularly good wine list with super recommendations without the big prices.

The service is poor and the staff is missing the flair you would expect. I found the bill heavy for what was servied. Manly French speaking audiance.

Excellent lunch on a Sunday. We opted for the à la carte, not the set menu (though its price is extremely tempting ...). Decent portions with high-quality ingredients. Relaxed but professional service.
