Several months had passed since I enjoyed lunch at Cuines 33 so I decided to return for dinner. In a word - Outstanding! From the moment we were seated and presented our first amuse-bouche the food stimulated all the senses. The visual presentation, the well-rounded combination of flavors, the wafting fragrance culminated in pure deliciousness. Every course was noteworthy for... More

Reservation was made well in advance as we tried several times on a short notice without any luck. We went for lunch as the set menu at 45 Euro or 55 Euro with wines and coffee was extremely good value. It truly deserves to be a Michelin-starred restaurant. The food was amazing and they are very generous with the number... More

Great experience. This place serves great food tapas-style but with Belgian ingredients. The wine list is superb too. It was a nice experience where, you are welcomed to have a cocktail, a small entree, and where you can have a tapa or a full menu. They serve 3 menus, we hd the "SABOR" (5 creations @ € 75) which was... More

Take a few hours from Brugge to visit the picturesque town of Knokke and take a walk from the beach up on its main commercial street till this restaurant. Make sure you make reservations previously! Out of this world!

This is a really oustanding restaurant. We went for the 7 course menu. In fact you have 14 courses, because every course consits of 2 things. It was sublime. One advice to the chef, why not offer a menu with wine included ?

This was one of the best meals I've ever had. We've been to Arzac in San Sebastian (3 Michelin stars) which was excellent but I enjoyed my meal at Cuines 33 much more. We went for the five course tapas menu and every course was outstanding, beautifully presented and an explosion of amazing and interesting tastes. There seemed to be... More

We've been more than once, and we're very pleased every time! The level the kitchen has is outstanding, and they keep challenging themselves. Every visit offered a very different menu, but was a pure pleasure every time! Highly recommended.
