Travelling with my son to Spa for a track day we wanted to stop off for lunch to break up the journey. We found this restaurant on the internet and turned up without a booking. It was very busy but they found us a table and even though English was not spoken much we were guided through the Dutch menu.... More

This is perhaps the restaurant in Belgium with the biggest stock of live lobsters. This is not a big restaurant but they give great attention to the quality of food and services. From starter, main course and dessert, they are all very good. Just come and spend a nice time here 😊.

I've had lobster everywhere, my favorite is still the sweet lobster from Maine, USA. However, this place was amazing and different! They serve lobster in so many ways and they make it easy to eat. I was unfortunately so stuffed from a late lunch I couldn't finish my meal, but my friends had no problem finishing for me! I had... More

Everything about this place feels so fancy. The prices on the menu don't reflect that. Everything is more expensive than your average restaurant but it is still very affordable. Try the lobster or the lobster bisque. I had it a few years ago and I was flabbergasted. Hmm hmm hmm. Thank you for your wonderful service

My wife, sister, and i had the triple lobster treat feast at Le Grand Bleu. My favorite lobster was the Stroganoff. The sauce was so rich and creamy, i savored each spoonful. The weather cooperated for that day and was very sunny which enabled us to dine outdoor underneath a canopy. The service was fast, friendly, and very personable. Since... More

I took my boyfriend there to celebrate his birthday, since I hear few nice words from other people about the place. Food were okay, nothing special and gin & tonic in a tall glass? The sun was shinning through but unfortunately the window shade was broken so I sat there with my hand protecting my eyes, not to mention the... More

This is thé place to be for lobster in the wider Gent area. The restaurant is unassuming: come as you are. But what counts is the delicuous seafood that appears on your plate. The menu is dominated by lobster dishes, so for those who want to enjoy lobster without paying through the nose for lots of distracting extras: try Le... More

Imagine yourself in a simple house, one of the many on the row of houses. Imagine yourself in a room of the simple house, packed with tables, some for 2 some for 4 some for 6 persons. Almost crampy. But all tables get filled during lunch. Does this sounds like a nice restaurant? No, it doesn't. It sounds like one... More
