Very discrete in its outside appearance, this is a wonderful seafood restaurant with fresh quality produce. Cosy environment, original decoration and great friendly no nonsense service.

One of the view fish restaurants at a very high level who has not seen any deterioration of food and service over a period of almost a decade. Great service by the owner. Special location with lots of work of art (including the toilets!). We've been here so many times and will be back again when we' are visiting De... More

My friend invited me to have lunch at this very established 'institution' of sea food. He picked the € 30 menu which includes fish soup, an ensemble of different sea shell food and a dessert. As a surprise with the aperitif there was delicious haring and cucumber, prepared by the house. The menu consisted of fish soup -which was excellent... More

We called in without booking on a Sunday evening, and they found us a table (family of four). We were fortunate to have gone there early, as the place soon filled up. The owner helped us... More

We walked 1 km to try this place - it sounded great. We got there at 9:00. Their website says they are open until 11:00. When we got there, the owner grouchily shook his head and said (in dutch) "too late". Apparently he just wanted to close. I am not impressed. That was our last night in Blankenberge and I... More

Nice atmosphere: You'll see very different things in the interior and always have something to look at. First visit here after hearing lots of great things from lots of people and it's... More
