Had a couple of beers and some lovely sweet chilli ribs that were cooked on the grill over the open wood fire. Good food and friendly efficient service.

Den Artiest is well known in Ostend and is a typical place to meet with friends before going out. Simple cuisine but good for the price. The meat is good.

We came here on a Sunday around 6 PM and we were the only customers. We were served quickly for the main dish but nobody asked us if we wanted desserts. We had to ask for the menu again. Nobody came to take our order. We just wanted to leave as they rushed to our table to take our order.... More

We're an Airline Flight Crew so we know restaurants world wide. It doesn't get much better than this for quality and value. Wonderful European atmosphere, great wines and excellent food. Very popular with the locals and doesn't require reservations but making some in advance ensures you'll have a table. Typical in Europe, your well behaved canine can be with you... More

Was staying in ostend during a week long off season work trip, and ate here a couple of evenings. Good values, decent selection of food, good quality, friendly staff. Would recommend, I'd advise booking well in advance during summer months!
