Good food on the digue.

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

Excellent food with friendly staff and great atmosphere. Try the seafood. It's a must. Better reserve in advance if you want a table in front (sea view)

Went for a 50th birthday party and the food was excellent , but.....all the party except one chose from the set menu with a single person chosing from the a la carte. This apparently was not acceptable and we either had all to go a la carte or all from the set menu to help the staff in the kitchen.... More

We had to wait almost one hour for our dinner. They were simply understaffed. Seafood was amazing. Worth the wait...

Warm reception and friendly and attentive service. Sophisticated cuisine. Do try the bisque aux crevettes grises! The boudin and the duck were perfectly done. Good suggestion of a south african cabernet sauvignon. We will be back. Fair prices.

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.

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.
