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

High quality standard Belgian fare in a very pleasant environment. Most people opt for the giant covered patio dining (all weather all year). No reservations are accepted for the terrace but the wait is usually bearable unless you are e large group. Friendly and personal service. You only have to go a few times and you are recognized by the... More

Many times we have been sitting on the terrasse and have been dining in the restaurant. Always a nice relaxing place after a long walk along the beach boulevard
