Nice service and good price/quality of the food

Hey all, My mother-in law, my fiancé and I went to Brasserie Rubens located at Knokke. The brasserie looked nice but we cannot make any reservation. We waited about 30 minutes outside, luckily it wasn't too cold. The quality of the food was very nice and the price for the meals was reasonable. I... read more

Reservations not possible, waiter was not very friendly, food was OK but very expensive, guess it's part of the Knokke experience. There are better places to go to for dinner.

It is a popular restaurant, so often crowded. A big staff sometimes friendly, sometimes a bit less, but probably due to the crowds, but always well organised. The food quality is good, not outstanding. The view from the circular room is splendid: sea view.

Typical Belgian Brasserie with good service and food. They were famous for their home made shrimp croquettes which were the best of the country. They were quite pricy and I noticed they changed the receipts and while still ok they are not the best anymore but they are again a little cheaper. Nonetheless they should have kept the quality.

Brasserie Rubens is a "must" to see and to be seen. The food is good and steady and the service is excellent and very well organized. Generally the brasserie is full especially at dinner time and a reservation should be made before.

The big and unique covered terrace offers a magnificient view on the Rubens square and the sea. You can choose your food and drinks from an elaborate menu card and an impressive wine list. Very friendly service. Special mention of Herwig, better known as 'Madame Soleil'. s-he is so funny and helpful.

Nice restauration and good location. However the service could have been much better... There are not enough waiters if the restaurant is full. We waited and waited and waited... The waiter was friendly but obviously overworked. Food was good but nothing special in my opinion!

Right of the Zeedijk in Knokke, this restaurant seems never to be empty. However, should you want to avoid to mingle with the crowds, ask for a table inside. The menu is quite traditional. Try their grey shrimp croquettes as a starter, you'll love it. Their daily fish is also worth a try, even though somewhat pricey. As far as... More
