Brasserie style restaurant with a great sea-view. Great terrace, however often very busy. The best terrace in Knokke to sit in the sun also later in the day. Service is ok and professional. Large choice on the menu card. Food is good and not too expensive for Knokke.

Very well located, facing the sea and the sunset. Typical cuisine, many tables but always crowded. reservations are possible for tables inside of the restaurant, not for the outside (terrace with heaters).

This is a very good place for a fine dining. We were there with some friends and we took mussels. Perfect. The service is really professional. They have also a very good choice of wines. Choose table 16 or 17 and you will have a beautiful view on the see.

Have been at this Brasserie before with friends who have an apartment in Knokke. Most of the times we go to this Brasserie as we have never been disappointed. It's certainly not the cheapest place but good value for money. Both, the terrace and the inside are very appealing depending on the weather.

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
