Soup made with and from north sea fish is not real bouillabaisse, but can be a treat. And it was in restaurant Othello. Not the best location in Ostend, but we were served this excellent dish by a very friendly lady. We were there for lunch and hardly needed supper in the evening.

Cute little typical Flemish restaurant on the seafront. Nice steaks and of course lovely fish dishes. Average price for Belgium, it enjoys attentive service, and the owners obviously care about the place because it looked super in its christmas attire. Did warn my daughter about asking for medium rare steak, because knew in Europe that actually means rare to the... More

Bouillabaise is a must. Nice big portion with excellent taste, served with crab and crustaceans. Friendly service and good price (contrary to many tourist traps on the harbour front).

Delightful owner with excellent staff. The best Coquille St Jacques I have had for many years - the envy of everyone else. Would not hesitate to recommend and will certainly return again if nearby.

A very good restaurant in Oostende, close to the harbour and along the sea. The quality is excellent for typical belgian food on the flanders coast (shrimp, mussels and north sea fishes for examples). The service is professional and the prices are on line with the quality. A good address.

My partner & myself visited Othello due to it being situated just around the corner from our hotel, and after reading the reviews on here. We were not disappointed. The menu was excellent, especially for fish/seafood; I chose a starter of scallops and moules marinieres for the main course. Both dishes were beautifully cooked with wonderful flavours & portion sizes... More
