Difficult to find table and can experience long waiting time even in September. Otherwise nice place on the promenade with good food. One can opt for Royal 50 meters on the other side of the square.

Never disappointed by this restaurant. The food and the drinks are quite expensive but they place is beautiful and the food is always good. The food is of high quality, so the price is okay in the end. It's always a good place to go when you want to eat well. A special shoutout to the Shrimps croquettes and the... More

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.

Thank Otto B
