Great food, but extreme slow service! After more than 1 hout waiting we still had not received our starters, and we did not have anything to drink eventhough everything had been ordered within 10 - 15 minutes after our arrival. Between the dishes, the waiting time was extremely long and when we made a friendly comment about it at The... More

tasty Flemish stew with beer eaten on the seafront of Blankenberge. nice view, nice brown drunk. Wild sea, little dilapidated city. But hey, we love the Belgian coast, we come here often.

The restaurant has a buzz to it and a great atmosphere. Portions are not very large but correctly priced, certainly taking the prime location into account.

Allthough they have a large menu (lots of choices) everything comes quickly out of the kitchen, tasting very good. They serve good quality brasserie-classics in a contemporary interior. Nice location facing the sea. Unlikely most tourist-restaurants a restaurants where you can go back without hesitation. They have a very professional crew (quick, friendly,...) and are very flexible.

Food is of average quality, whereas I would say it is slightly overpriced. Staff is doing it's best, but also forgets things. All in all, not bad but also not a favorite of mine. There are absolutely better places in town.

This restaurant is a cut above the many run-of-the-mill establishments on the prom at Blankenberge. Firstly, the decor is by an award-winnning interior decorator. So the seating is ample and comfortable and the window tables on the upper floor offer a great view of the beach and sea. Secondly, it is a longstanding, family-run business with a team of professional... More

Had a fantastic lunch with friends on a public holiday. View of the sea from the second floor was great. Open windows brought a nice sea breeze and made the seaside experience even better. Food was fantastic. The Blankenberge Fish Soup was delicious! Great selection of wine and a very professorial waiter/sommelier added that extra bit to make it even... More

A typical beach front restaurant, with no frills. The place has two foors, but we were told the upper was closed. One tip: in the entrance they have many free magazines for visiting guests. The interior is modern but not cool or trendy. Seats are good, and there is enough space at the table. Service is good, but not special,... More
