We have here several times and we always love it. The fish menu is great and desserts are great. Looking forward to go back soon.

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...

This restaurant is relatively recent and already established as a great place. Absolutely justified !!! Whether choosing from the suggestions or the set menu you will receive very fresh and creatively prepared dishes. Service is friendly and perfect. Also the little nibbles with the apéritif or with the coffee at the end are very good. Been there a few times... More

Some interior designer did a great job in this place. You also get a splendid view of the grey Belgian coast and there are some forgotten pictures on the wall from Belgian’s award winning photographer Stephan Vanfleteren. The picture in front of the bar hung a bit weird though. The menu is more than decent, I understand why this is... More

This distinguished restaurant deserves your visit to the Zeedijk 291 at Knokke-Heist. Their shrimp-croquettes are among the best in Flanders. But all other fine meals are splendid too. Carefully presented. High standard. Pleasant interior design and good friendly staff. Not convinced yet? Gault-Millau 2012: 14/20 (and climbing).

Without doubt this is the very best restaurant of Knokke/Bruges area. The food is perfect with an eye for details. Also good classics like Dover Sole, Steak tartare.... Good wine list and nice collection of magnums. Only slight negative point is the interior which is rather cold.
