Very nice restaurant

The restaurant has a modern feel to it with excellent food. The staff is attentive. It is usually crowded so booking in advance is advisable. Fish and meat are recommended. Trendy atmosphere.

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.
