As we had never eaten here before, my husband and I took a chance and were pleased we did. This proved to be popular with locals and we were lucky enough to get a table early evening without booking. The service was a little slower than usual, but allowed for a relaxed evening without feeling rushed.My husbands fish in green... More

This is a restaurant that we have always gone to. It is in the town where we have our beach apartment. Not open Mondays and Tuesdays during high season should have been the hint. We went there Wednesday. The owner, as usual was very friendly and gave us a nice table and a french waiter. (my husband speaks flemish and... More

We come here often, and normally enjoy a very good meal.... Have not been here in a year, and we were very disappointed with the quality of food. One enjoys having the <grey shrimp> from the north sea when having an aperatif, but this time, fake crab... sad for a seaside restaurant. The menu is a good value for price,... More

We walked in for lunch today, not expecting anything special - how wrong we were ! We were given a tasty amuse bouche almost as soon as we sat down. The starters were well presented and good value. Main courses were excellent. My brochette of beef with two sauces was amazing and I gave the dish ten out of ten.... More

We reserved a table and got a total different table, it took an hour before we got our meal, the children got their dish first en after 10 minutes arrived our dish! I ordered pasta with mussels, but there where no mussels in it at all, so they returned with the same plate with 3 mussels on it! They brought... More

Found some great reviews about this restaurant, so decided to have a go at it. However, it turned out to be a (slight) disappointment. The starters (scampi and croquettes with shrimps) were okay, but no more than that. The main courses were a bit disappointing: the grilled entrecote did not taste like it was grilled, the sole meuniere was below... More

You never know what to expect in a tourist spot, but Benelux is a nice surprise in de Panne. Large portions, good taste in pleasant surroundings

De Panne is just in Belgium over the border from France (about 65km from Calais) and one of many restaurants near the northern end of the town's seafront. We chose it because looked well cared for and decorated, and was still busy with lunches at 2pm. It was a bit too cold to sit outside, but there are a lot... More

Recommended by hotelier as 'Where the locals go for a meal out'. Benelux did not disappoint. Plenty of interesting fish choices, but meat available if desired. Quality food nicely presented, but not over-fancy. Decent enough choice of beers and wines. Friendly and straightforward service. Benelux is not cheap, but then neither is Belgium generally if you want something worthwhile, and... More
