My friend took me here for my birthday whilst we were on holiday in Knokke. She booked online from England which I would recommend as the restaurant is always well patronised and it's not always a pleasant experience when one has to wait in line outside for half an hour or so to get a table. We started with soup... More

The price of the sole did not appear on the menu (nor the cabillaud) because it depends of the availability. I was offered three little soles instead of one big piece at a reasonable price. It was delicious, so were the French fries (frites). Fresh salmon and potatoes from the oven were served to my companion. Definitely an excellent place... More

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).
