Superb décor, lovely hostess.

They redid their interior 2 years ago while it didn't feel outdated to me (which the nearby Esmeralda definitely is). If you have the chance, visit them for lunch on weekdays outside the tourist season and you'll be gastronomically pampered. Great selection of wines.

The setting is beautiful, the host was great the wine matching is amazing. The dishes vary from Amazing to average. we had the small dishes tasting and it started right there. The tomatoes and scampis where beyond expectations a blessing for the palet, the rest of the hors d'oeuvres where plain and bland. The dishes where ok nothing to write... More

Staying in Brugge we found most michelin star restaurants were closed mondays so out hotel recommended Jardin , which was a 30 min taxi ride away . When we arrived we were quite nervous because the restaurant seemed a bit layed back & noisy for a michelin star establishment , initially things seemed a bit slow as it took 30... More

I had great expectations for lunch at Le Jardin. The traditionally decorated room was well-appointed and the menu was promising. But the food, while pleasant, was unexciting and the presentation was boring - every course was served in a bowl. I would have given it a rating of very good, but my expectations of a restaurant with a Michelin star... More

We had lunch in the Jardin Restaurant in Knokke and came to the following conclusion: The price of the lunch is VERY MODERATE (3 meals course 35 Euro, with the possible addition of a small lobster dish) Surprisingly, the food was rather spicy; as apetizer we got some haring toest and Nobashi shrimps, but the quality of the ingredients was...

This is the second time we've visited Jardin. It is a wonderful, down to earth restaurant serving the best ingredients and with impeccable service. The owners are truly passionate about the food and their business and look after their customers very well. The wine list is an impressive mix of small appellations and specials from a variety of regions. Very... More

Pretty nice buffet with some seafood and meat. Main course was a norwegian cod with cheese ... Not exactly the best combination imho but it was OK. Very friendly service but overall overpriced, especially the wines, water and coffee. Nice setting friendly service but too expensive, for the same money there is better value in this area.

We were welcomed by very friendly staff. Special Belgian champagne for aperitive and very original menu, which required some explanation by the staff. No mini portions as you sometimes encounter in restaurants of this class. A must, when you stay in Knokke.

27 July 2014 We arrived after having made a reservation for 8 persons for a birthday celebration. Plans to spend 150 eur per person, and thought to have a great time. We were most rudely turned back that night; "how do you think to have reserved a week ago?" The lady (not sure this is the right word?) at reception... More
