This restaurant is located on the boardwalk of Ostend and a great place to see the fireworks. After a super 6 course meal the roof comes down from the front terrasse and we get a glass of champagne at midnight.

We were there in beginning of September. My girlfriend and I had a hot chocolate, and I ordered a pancake as wel. The hot chocolate was not of a high quality, we think it was just a "Cecemel" (chocolate milk you can buy in the supermarket) that was heated up. The pancake was not warm enough and cooled very quickly,... More

The new menu has a "degustation" selection for 45€ that is just unbelievable. 5 courses and one outdoes the other. First the 3 tappas, then tuna tataki, then the best miso soup you ever had followed by scallops. The main dish is cod a la flamande and if you still have room for dessert then enjoy the chocolate pastry. Service... More

A very disappointing recommendation by my hotel. The fish chunks in the visoep were boiled to the point of ruberryness, the little shrimp looked like shriveled ... and the sole tasted OK but were heavy with butter and oil. I was most impressed by the way they cut the lemon halves, leaving a little "lip" so that your dinner guests... More

The menu is cosmopolitan and there is something for everyone including vegetarian. The owner works hard and his staff do more than keep up. We go there regularly and have never been disappointed. They used to have sashimi, and hopefully it will come back on the menu.

Good value for money is not easily found in a touristic spot, but at Bottarga you can count on freshness. The meal salads are just gorgeous and presented in a tempting new style with respect for the main ingredients being meat, cheese, fish or seafood. The traditional "steak tartare" ( minced beef ) is prepared on the spot and really... More

We are a loyal client to this restaurant in the last 3 years. A modern, loungy interior and a fusion cuisine with also excellent local dishes. The "Tomaat Garnaal" is just excellent with a massive amount of superfresh shrimps. Also try the steak tartare if you dare. And the staff is friendly with a perfect service. Not to forget the...
