One of the best in Heist-aaan Zee

Trendy middle range restaurant, nice interior with sea view. Food is delicious and also nice presentation on the dish. They have no michelin star, but they diserve one. We hade a very nice evening here with 4 persons and we will come back

I tend to evaluate the food quality of a brasserie by having the shrimp croquettes as a starter. And yes, once again this proves to be a perfect parameter. The Bristol's shrimp croquettes were of top quality and it turned out that everything else coming on the table last sunday night was equally of top quality. We were a party... More

Since i discovered Bristol last year, it is my favorite address for a night out at the belgian sea side. Bristol, is located in the very charming Knokke (Belgium hot spot on the coast), on the "dijk" next to the sea. The service is great, the place is well curated and nice, the food is delicious boosting very fresh products... More

It may have been a 'brasserie' at some time, but it surely is a fine dining place right now. It took us several attempts to get in ... now we understand why. It is rare to find such quality and service for such moderate prices in Belgium's premium coastal town (admittedly at the outskirts). No menu, 'à la carte' only,... More

Tried to book a table for two on a saturday evening for my birthday, but the brasserie was already fully-booked several days in advance. So we choose for Sunday lunch instead, and they didn't disappoint. We went for a couple of classics ... shrimp croquette appetizer and sole for the main dish ... both were just perfect. In addition the... More

A very good kitchen where you see the hand of the chef, a previous sous-chef of Bartholomeus, a star restaurant next door. There is a classic and a "modern" menu. But even in the "classic" which has my preference you get this "little special touch". The "tomate crevette"; THE speciality of the Belgian coast, is extraordinary creative in both presentation...
