The place is al right, nothing fancy, average food and typical dishes, the staff could be more friendly and flexible.

The restaurant is located on the beach walk of Oostende between the casino and the Thermal Palace hotel, the most beautiful piece of beachwalk at the Belgian sea side. This is a nice restaurant not only for tourists but also for locals. Good brasserie kitchen with fresh ingredients. Nice service

The restaurant has a modern feel to it with excellent food. The staff is attentive. It is usually crowded so booking in advance is advisable. Fish and meat are recommended. Trendy atmosphere.
