The specialty is lobster of course, in a great variety of preparations. For groups of people (up to 25?), I recommend Le Jardin... More

We stopped by on a Sunday lunchtime and took the full "Maandmenu" for 35e (cheaper menus also available, single dishes ca 15-20e each). It included: a pre-starter of shrimps and olives, carpaccio of a rabbit (Belgian co-diners suggested it came from England ;)) served with cucumber ice-cream (a bit strange - sweet stuff for carpaccio..) then a baked bit of...

This restaurant offers you a market menu at 28Euros , with a fresh lobster, an entremets, an excelent fish main course and a dessert. The interior is not fantastic, but service is swift and gentle. I would quote the with an A. Worth searching for it.
