“At the level of its Michelin star”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

At the level of a Michelin star

I had a very fine 3 course menu with high quality and expensive ingredients. Fine combinations of crustiness and smooth tastes. Not too daring but very well done nevertheless. Rather small restaurant with very friendly personnel.

The 3 course menu is sharply priced at € 30,- On the other hand the € 75,- for a 4 course menu and € 110,- including wines is at the high end of the spectrum (and over the top). Additionally the 3 course menu with accompanying wines was also € 55,- for not very special wines (Bourgonge Alligoté)

If I return it will be for the small menu.

The best seafood on the Belgian coast. Fresh, well balanced, tasteful ingredients. Very good atmosphere, top service. Worth the Michelinstar.

“Seafood, the way it should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

The location, a bit hidden on a busy avenue (with road works in progress) next to a take-away Chinese, is a bit unfortunate. All the rest is great. I have never tasted seafood in a more pure form, with the vegetables truly supporting the main ingredient. Very good service, and a remarkable wine-list. Excellent value for money !
