We went for lunch on a Saturday. It was empty but very welcoming with a fireplace and freshly cut Parma Ham as "Amuse bouche". The menu is a good composition of seasonal produce and fish/seafood.

First of all, this restaurant is not really situated in Knokke, it is a few miles out, in a village which is called Ramskapelle. Expect a 15 euro cab ride from Knokke but it is ideally located if you like riding your bike. Family place as well, it's a bit noisy. Secondly, this place calls itself an 'open kitchen restaurant'...
