Nice little restaurant run by a friendly elderly couple. Their speciality is sea-food, however the meat dishes can also be recommended. Very cosy ambience, however a bit old-fashioned. Worth a visit.

The seafood platter was recommended by friends. And indeed it was great delicious and too much (we ended with a doggy bag ;-) ) The crepe Suzette was also delicious. Our only regret is that we waited so long before going. As Schwatsie would say: We'll be back.

One of my favorite restaurants in Knokke. Wonderfull cuisine, always positive experience, never disappointed. The menu varies and offers high quality food for everyone and every taste. The fish is so tasteful and the service always friendly and professional but warm.

Owners are just wonderful! Happy to see us! Great table, great service, everything was wonderful! We had the grilled muscles which were so delicious. And of course we had the grilled lobsters which were cooked to perfection.

It is a charming little place, ideal to have a lobster for the first time :) We were surrounded by attention and care, very nice English speaking lady explained how the lobster works - perfect dinner with friends!

great lobster. I don't like to crack lobster and get dirty. I asked for "lazy man" lobster. They cracked and had it all prepared so well. No work. I just got to enjoy. And it was cooked to perfection, I felt so special. Couple who own and run the restaurant are just adorable and very sweet. Very proud people who... More

The mussel-season just started in Belgium and we wanted to taste this delicatesse asap. We had a tip about this restaurant that is famous for his fish, lobster & mussel-dishes. We started with a little misunderstanding : we asked for a bottle of house-champagne but got 4 glasses instead :-( .. We chose the mussel-menu : first we had raw... More

Tried to make reservation for the third time and this time we were lucky. The lady was very kind to take our reservation at the phone. The restaurant is easy to find, parking space in the area is rather easy to find when you go in the evening. At noon it might be difficult, because the restaurant is located in... More

We reserved the day itself and got a nice table. It's a small restaurant but that gives it extra charm. The lady welcoming us, is also the owner and she was very friendly. We had a nice dinner with excellent wine. The interior might look a bit old fashioned but the atmosphere was nice.
