A marvelous (big) covered and warmed terrace in winter, an open terrace (roof can be opened by sunny weather) in summer and a view on the North Sea gives a special "holiday atmosphere". But no reservations are allowed on the terrace and it's often crowded, unless you arrive early (at noon for lunch for example). If you want to book... More

Three of us paid 160 euros for 2 courses each - one main course was only omelette and chips (the other mains were chicken and chips and cod). it was quite expensive for average food. Helpful and polite waiters though

This place is well positioned if you have children, being just in front of the Rubensplein kids can play around on an almost traffic-free zone. Because is very popular prepare to wait 20 to 40 minutes to have a seat, crowded and noisy, look somewhere else if you appreciate quietness. Food is not bad but is not great either: quite... More

We were a party of 5. 3 of us were served 10 minutes after the first dishes arrived, Fries arrievd after the steak was finished. Not an excuse. Fries were charged on the bill. Thue usual shrimp croquettes were fine, the bouillabaise was plane, overpriced. Will defintely not return.

We have been to Rubens many times, the last being in June 2014. First remark: if you don`t like the crowd then look of something else. This is the place where in afternoon you`ll see tens of people -of a certain age many of the them- parading in front of you with all possible colours and combinations of the rainbow.... More

Had lunch today as there was no queue to get in which isn't always the case. Food was good and our waiter was attentive enough but how they can charge those prices is unbelievable. As I say was okay but if you have time look around further from the beachfront

A very popular choice for both lunch and dinner on the boardwalk in Knokke at the start of the Albertstrand section of town. Very pleasant to sit on the outside terrace watching the crowds walk by … in the meantime enjoying a glass of delicious Sancerre with the excellent local specialty of shrimp croquettes. Definitely to recommend.

Definitely not with a smile, okay it was busy but is'nt it always? Hamburgers for the kids were not properly cooked, our steak bearnaise were two big lumps of chewy meat with little sauce(one serving for two)and two 15gram servings of cress...for only €47! Super location, the rest is disappointing...
