We've been to the Den Artiest on every visit to Ostend and the standard is still at the top. The atmosphere and ambiance is great and the food is excellent, they have a very good range of cocktails and of course beers. The staff are efficient and help you with the menu if you don't quite understand the translation. The... More

It's not the first time I go to this Restaurant and any time I really enjoy. The ambient is warm and the service is frindly and professional. I suggest to taste soup of day and grilled plate, both meet and fish. Scampi are absolutely delicious and mixed grill wit mushroom too.Don't miss.

Ok it is a great setting. Friendly service but it did not meet the expectations. The seating space is just small. Small tables. Broken chairs. The food below average. My beef was over cooked and chewy. And served with the wrong sauce to start. French fries of cheap quality and by the taste and look fried three times. Service is... More

I like the place. The bar and restaurant are very cool, artsy, while retaining and old tavern feel. Service was friendly, but very slow. The problem is their staffing. On a Monday night with eight tables seated, they were swamped. One server for the seven tables downstairs, with no additional bar help or bussing help. Got my first drink and... More
