The best terrace in Knokke on the seafront. Customers of all ages, as well locals as tourists, what makes the place interesting. The staff is very professional. The menu card lists classical dishes. Nice place to to go, at every season and every time of the day.

Fabulous food, atmosphere and service! Professional wait staff . Wonderful seating both inside and outside. There is a more formal seating area indoors ( lovely traditional/ classic decor) and outside features a typical cafe style area, complete with awning and sides to protect you from wind and rain, of which we had plenty during our visit!:)

If you don't have a clue where to go for dinner or lunch because you are not shure what to eat, then you should go to Brasserie Rubens. They have a large menu card and you can always be shure the food is fresh because there is always a lot of people who like to go there... And that means... More

My friend invited me for a very special and delicious dinner! We were drinking 'Canaria' and eating Lobster- I really can recommend it. The view to the sea and the beautiful sunset showed me a completely new side of Belgium.

The Rubens is a monument in Knokke. Situated at the crowdy Albert plein, it is a solid choice for sea food and "filet américain". It's prices are a bit higher than the restaurants next to it. But then, that's a always the case in a place where people see and want to be seen... Service is very friendly, better than... More

We were here in February when it was obviously off season for the town. We found Rubens open and very crowded with people and there pets. The lunch with a beer was satisfying. One had an omelette, one had Tartar, another a salad with goat cheese and I had a small sandwich. The Tartar was very good according to Patrick... More
