Modern and trendy restaurant with colorful paintings along the boulevard by the sea.Busy place even on a rainy and windy off season evening. The food was excellent as was the friendly but correct service.

Read about this restaurant and with the good critics i got we decided to find out ourselfs. First up is the location. Beach is right infront of you. This is always a great bonus. The belgium coast is very fortunated with its coastline and has along the entire stretch of their coast an perfect beach with a fairly calm sea.... More

Characterised by very slow service, served with a flourish that is better than the mediocre food that is over priced. We would have liked a dessert ( Wife's birthday), but had to ask for the bill and go elsewhere, the service being so poor. Don't eat here- there are lots of restaurants nearby of good quality.

Good food and service. Not something you find easily in this town. The sole meuniere is fantastic, if not exactly low priced.

The restaurant has gone through several owners in the last 30 years. Was good 20 years ago and the quality has not suffered. Still a good place to eat. The menu is short, simple and the dishes are prepared with care and pride. Well worth a visit.

We were there in winter, on a friday night. The restaurant was half full (it could have been empty). Service was kind, maybe not very personal, but not intrusive. Wine (Sancerre 2011) was very good and food too. It's not cheap but worth the price. It's not just an ordinary restaurant on the seafront, it's a real one (good restaurant,... More

We wnet there saterday 8//9/2012. It's a nice modern interior. The food was very good (raviola of lobster, kingcrab) but the service is very impersonal. Price/quality is ok, certainly for a place like Knokke.
