We went back, 3 times in 3 weeks. The food was very good and the staff more the friendly. The menu is rather limited but the food quality superb. I enjoyed the Steak Tartare, my relatives the Mussels with Mustard and Chicory. It seems there is a new manager in charge, the reservation call was fluent and efficient, the service... More

Knokke, probably the posh part of the Belgian coast, offers lots of restaurants and taverns at the beach promenade. Some of them are superb, some of them are poor. We went to 'The Beach' multiple times and always had a nice experience, both from a food and service perspective. Also our kids enjoyed the food at every occasion. Last week... More

On the tourist strip but the service and simple lunch were above expectations . Terrace is a sun trap and filled quickly . Mainly simple lunch menu and prices are reasonable for the location. Service was friendly and helpful.

The Beach terrace is nicely located on the main boulevard of Knokke. The a la carte dishes are enjoyable and have a good quality. The temporary staff (students) were friendly and helpful. The various house wines offer you a good pallet of affordable and lovely wines. The atmosphere (how hard they try) unfortunately remains touristic with the obvious rush-factor. Rethinking... More

We (me and my girlfriend) went to Knokke to see North sea. The weather was nice and sunny we enjoyed walking on the beach but it was windy. We wanted to warm up ourselves and have something nice. There are many places on the beach but we did not find any with English menu. We selected first crowded place. Waiters... More

The beach in Knokke was really wonderful. The presence of foot and bike paths, it was lovely to look at everything. But even directly on the beach could make beautiful walks. This was especially visible at low tide, the artistic side of the Belgians. At each breakwater figures were available, so every walk of culture "loaded"! Especially on warm sunny... More

During summer this is an extraordinary place to enjoy some typical belgian mussels and have a cold wine glass.
