WOW!!

This was one of the best meals I've ever had. We've been to Arzac in San Sebastian (3 Michelin stars) which was excellent but I enjoyed my meal at Cuines 33 much more. We went for the five course tapas menu and every course was outstanding, beautifully presented and an explosion of amazing and... read more

We've been more than once, and we're very pleased every time! The level the kitchen has is outstanding, and they keep challenging themselves. Every visit offered a very different menu, but was a pure pleasure every time! Highly recommended.

i love cuines33, i love it because you can rely on these guys every time we come to diner (we went 5 times already). You want a cocktail at the bar (the house cocktail is a must) ? you want some tapas along side with them, no prob. The dishes themselves are fresh, beautiful quality (mostly fish) served by young...

My partner and I had the Gran Sabor tasting menu (seven dishes), and from the first dish on I was delighted by the quality of the food, and by how great everything tasted! Favourites were the hand-made couscous, sea brass and mackerel. I chose the 'dragon fly' cocktail, and it tasted delicious! Some minor points resulted in me not scoring... More

Was really impressed by the quality of the meal. Would recommend this restaurant to everybody. We took the 5 course tapas menu; this was plenty of food for me.

Having taken a day trip from Brussels to Knokke I was wanting to end my visit with a late tasty lunch. Being unimpressed by the restaurants near the ocean, I hunted down Cuines 33 and was most pleased I did. Whilst I was too late for lunch, the wait staff allowed me to order some tapas which was sensational. The... More

This restaurant is easily accessible from the expressway, but not so convenient to park in front of the door. When we entered the restaurant we were asked to take the aperitif at the bar, but as it was already quite late, we went to the table immediately. We ordered the 7 course tapa menu. The appetizers were tasteful: a meringue... More

Not my 1st visit, but no idea How they do, but on practically a monthly base the CUINES offers a new menu , a menu, who dish after dish is a real Discovery and a pleasure to taste. Not Only the ingredients, the combination of the ingredients, but the preparation and the original presentation all contribute to a fantastic experience.... More
